Sorry guys...don't see anything classic about those two rides. Just like a two door Ford Fastback Mustang. Nothing impressive. Now give me a 55 T-Bird and we are definetly talking CLASSIC. Unique body style is what makes a CLASSIC. Steve

Go to a Antique Car swap meet and see the price of a port hole T-Bird. Check the Antique/Classic car auction and open your eyes. There are a few people with different ideas as to CLASSIC but original miles and condition determines the bidding price and the individuals whims is what buys the car. Different strokes for different folks. Just my opinion as you have yours. Steve

I fail to see what mileage, condition, or bidding price has to do with the original question. I have no clue what an original t-bird goes for and could care less, you don't like my choice and I don't like yours, no reason to get your panties in a bunch, just say you like the t-bird and move on.

Some people think the 1974 Ford Pinto is a classic.It sure was great on gas but a very simple car that proved to be deadly for some.Being rear ended caused a gas tank explosion.

A 1968 car a CLASSIC????. Heavens, it's only 40 yrs old and still a ton on the roads and some being demolished into scrap metal. Not worth very much money in todays mkt. Anyone who thinks that yr is a classic shows his age. Guess the person has never owned a 31 Model A ford or driven a 32 bucket duece roadster or a 40 Ford Cpe or a 56 chevy Bel Air. Now those were my good time cars and fond memories. Oldies and Goodies yes...classic not really but still a trip to many who had the same experience as me. Like I said "you are entitled to your opinion and I'm entitled to mine". Steve

My dad owned one back then and sold it to a friend of his. It was the lime frost color and had a 390. Talk about power. Ummph!!

Steve Bagu,

you sound like the type of person (invoking classic car auctions) who sees a classic car not as a passion, but more as a status symbol. because that's what those auctions are all about - who has the deeper pockets. those auctions have nothing to do with love of cars.

you say people who are afficionados for muscle era cars are showing their age...as if only some young whipersnappers would be into that. that's crazy talk. get over yourself, sir. a person who was 18 in 1968 is 58 years old. that's not young and dumb. i've got a 1967 Firebird sittin in my garage, and im 33. i wouldn't trade that for 10 T-birds. nothing against what you're into, but myself and others like the performance and the attitude of the muscle era cars.
