    The SS I saw today was in flawless showroom condition... I did not check the odometer but got to look under the hood and in the trunk and it was absolutely pristine so that might explain the high appraisal value as you could never replace a car this cherry fresh. Nice running cars like this still sell in the mid 40's as American muscle cars have an incredible following.

    The fellow who had this also had a beautiful 65 Mustang convertible that he said was a daily summer driver while the SS only gets taken to shows.

    Delica D5 4x4 van. The replacement for the L400 model. The L400 was better off road but the D5 is better on road.

    The livery, seats and rollcage fitted on this vehicle is for the Dakar Rally but it's totally stock otherwise.

    Last week I was visiting relatives in Canada. Since he's mostly retired, cousin Joe bought a 1958 Chevy Impala similar to this one:
    http://classiccars.com/listings/view...w-jersey-08084

    We took it for a cruise, filled to capacity: three each in the front and back seats. What a hoot. It felt like we were cruising down the road on a pair of sofas.

    It's funny how '58 Impalas never got much respect until American Graffiti. But they've come on to their own since then. The rear end was really nice.

    I love those. I'll take your word for it since I'm young, but it's hard to believe people didn't recognize its beauty.

    I don't care for this 300SEL 6.3's color combo, nor do I think it's particularly beautiful, but the price and the car itself are awesome. If you like fast sedans like I do, this is the ultimate car.

    That 6.3 is a very serious car. No French pastry there, all business. Every time I look at those honkin' huge air manifolds on top of that engine I have to imagine the car at over 100mph, me behind the wheel.

    Don't forget, it came on the heels of the '57 Chevy. The 58's fins were decidely plump for late 50's tastes, and Chevrolet went to even pointier fins in 1959. They sold okay, but they didn't become fast-car icons like the '57s did. I heard '57s described as classics as early as 1962.

    I was actually surprised when Steve's '58 was supposed to be hot in American Graffiti. But then, the racers drove a '55 Chevy and a 32 Ford. Two classics.

    Ah, yes, the '57. I suppose they're still probably under-priced because of the '57's shadow. And fun fact about the 300SEL 6.3... The AMG race version, when retired, was put into use testing jet landing gear... I assume for its stability at high speeds and ability to get there quickly and reliably.

    I was never too fond of the '58, but I've always loved the '59. I like them much better than the '57.



    I also like the wagons and El Caminos:

    I've always wondered what happens when a big bug or a pebble gets sucked into the supercharger. Seems to me it would be very exciting.

    A bug would be sucked in, squished, fried, and then spat out the exhaust. End of bug.

    A pebble would probably get stuck in the supercharger rotors, either seizing them or at least damaging the rotors and housing. End of supercharger.

    Yes, but this would all be if the top part weren't just an air plenum/filter housing. At least that's what I assume.
