It would be a tough decision.

But, I think I'd go with a 1969 Trans Am.

I'd take a GTO, '61-64 Impala or a Chevelle SS. I think GM reached its apex in the 1960s.

I'd take any muscle car that they would choose to give me.

If I'm picking then a turquoise 1969/70 Charger 440 Six Pack or

1969 Dodge Coronet R/T 440 convertible.

Why are you always such a buzz kill?

It must be exhausting being such a Negative Nancy on everyone’s posts.

Sound like Pop Rivit.

Sorry if some common sense hurts your feelings.

Furthermore, the opinion of a kid that is proud of stealing from Costco, really doesn't matter to me.

I'll be a party pooper and just say "Give me the cash equivalent and keep the car".

In my days, I built a Chevy II Nova and one of my daily drivers was a '72 442. They were great in a straight line and in their day, could pass anything on the road but a gas station. Other than that, they were a pure PITA. They sounded and looked nice but were basically rattle-traps. Suspension, steering, brakes -and reliability in-general were pure junk compared to any modern low-end "performance" vehicle.

Been There, Done That (in real time)... You can keep e'm.

If I were to suddenly act-out on my midlife crisis, I'd get a Camaro ZL1-1LE and an AMG C 63 S-class.

I'd take the $$ and mail check to broker for investment. What I don't need at this juncture in my life is something that requires maintenance, fuel and insurance. Or something that eats and (whoops, can't say that, don't want to get banned again. One is enough. Wouldn't have one vehicle that is we had public transit.

1968 Dodge Charger. 383 or higher and it has to be a 4 speed with the pistol grip. I have been wanting one for more than 40 years. Can't afford one. And this would not be a garage queen. It would get driven and probably every day.

I’d rather “steal” from Costco than live a hateful life with a permanent frown on my face.

You must be quite lonely.

Wrong again, kid.

My life is all about fun and pursuing my hobbies. I/we have lots of fun, and lots of friends. No hate, except for dishonest people.

You're just mad because I called out your theft of an IIRC an airfryer, and you felt good about it because it was a "Big Business" that deserved it, or words to that effect.
