    Comments on that are interesting. I am of the "it is sad it was crashed but they will rebuild it and old race cars should be raced again" camp.

    So..."it'll buff out!" :-)

    Can't resist the urge to post pic's of mine from back in the day. Both 69's. Foundational to my life long passion with speed, power and motion...

    Very AWESOME !
    Reminds me of the couple of times I went to the Historic Races in Steamboat Springs !
    Now that I live 3hrs. away I'm going to have to get over there for next years' race, before some kind of B.S. ruins it like Steamboat !

    Thanks for posting....now I think I'll go jump in the old Mini for a spirited run down Hwy. 49, I think I hear the "Little Dragon" calling....:evil

    Same here but mine was a 72. I still miss my 510 and will have another one someday. I keep seeing this girl driving round in one that looks exactly like that red one of yours, but is way neglected since I bet she got it ina divorce or something and she definitely isn't a 510 type. I even remember seeing a guy driving it for years around town when it was cherry. Sounds like it has a six in it too. Anyway, someday I will see her again and try to see if she might sell it.
