Here's some thumbnails of my '65 ... 10 second sleeper.

I sold it in 2006.

Now reminicing about prices of vehicles since the mid-60's and how it relates to wages... well, that's more interesting.

When I started working I was making $1.65/hour. I couldn't afford a new car, so I bought a used 1964 Corvair Spyder for $350 and restored it at the age of 15.

I don't think there are too many folk that knows what a Spyder is....

Is $595 the price of a 3 piece black unlimited hardtop? I thought it was more...or are there regional differences?

You mean when that 562 is running ...

Not only did I feel it in my soul, I also felt it in the next lane ... the car was unruly.

Dyno'd at 680HP/710TQ ... torque peaked around 3,500 RPM.

A good romp and it would wrinkle those Hoosier 12 inch cheater slicks.

Well, that's just it! I'm wondering if these rims with the black inside are going to be an option on 2014s and/or though Mopar. If so, I wouldn't mind unloading them now and getting some money out of them and the KM2s for m upgrade.

According to customer service mine was picked for one of those 100% inspections....
As it turns out, the unit that is being advertised is not even in Houston yet. I drove by the dealer and it's actually supposed to be delivered on Tuesday night, April 9. So whoever said that the dealers are posting these as delivered units just to lure people into the showrooms was correct.

I will be driving by the factory on my 750 mile road trip home from Chicago to Delaware on Monday so maybe my picture of my wranglers birth place will be the day it rolls down the line!

My guess, that little red Jeep won't be red on a Wrangler. But since they're using these on the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, only time will tell if they are standard issue.

It's your money, do what you see fit.

It is lower priced because of the premium soft top delete. Credit is given for the soft top which is part of the 10AM package.

So is this truly a sold unit? Or a sold unit where the original ordered backed out? If it is truly still sold then putting it on Ebay is skeezy!

When I went to see it yesterday it was back by the parts department. Also someone was sitting in the drivers seat, passenger seat, and the back seat...they had ordered 3 weeks ago same options except 730 and top. It sounded like they were going to buy it instead of waiting on theirs! So they may have sold it in a day.

Holy shit! It's built, it's built, it's freaking built!! . The reason my Rubi. did not ship today is because it was randomly selected for secondary QA inspection. I mean if my Wrangler had to be delayed, there are worse reasons for it to happen. . Let's see if I get the Bridgestone KM data plate, haha!
