    :bigcryingariver: :bigcryingariver: :bigcryingariver: just makes me want to cry that these cars were built for just under 4-5 thousand dollars back in the day.

    And the technology they have in them now would have cost many tens of thousands, or more, back then.... they have more computing power in them than the entire plants that built them did in '70.

    Thanks for the pictures from the plant I actually think they corrected the shade of Plum Crazy back to the 70s cars. Can't wait to see some yard pics of the PC classics on sunlight thanks Hemiclone

    Dave, back then it may as well have been 40-50K, it was still a whole lotta dough.

    Price is relative, I started at $2.68 hr in '75, retired last year at $ 22.75 hr so price/wage is pretty close, but much better at dealmaking now!

    Yeah, the lighting doesn't give justice...The DY actually is a very deep looking paint, the PCP seemed a little "watered down" if you know what I mean...Then again the lighter colours ( HO, DY, Silver etc) get more paint to cover the primer.

    I'm probably going to either snap my neck from spinning it around or go into cardiac arrest the first time I see a DY in person.
    WOW! I would have loved a Challenger in that color.
