    True, 67 over any other year. Still would do GT500 with a R-code 427 instead of the slightly more customary 428 SCJ. That is if I had $600 or $700k laying around

    Okay, if you're talking only furrin iron I'll add

    67 Ferrari 330 GTC
    and 67 Iso Rivolta (which I did own at one time)

    And I guess the Muira if you like laying under that bake oven of a windshield

    The ISO Grifo is a very nice car, forgot about that one, the Muira is beautiful but had a lot of issues including the front end lifting off the road because they were so fast and they hadn't figured out aerodynamics properly yet, I think it caused a few catastrophic accidents.
    The ferrari gtc 330 is nice too.
    have I got good taste or what?
    I will make a list of my favourite future classics next.

    Grifo not as much because of that stupid pie pan hood on the 427s

    The ISO Grifo is a very nice car, forgot about that one, the Muira is beautiful but had a lot of issues including the front end lifting off the road because they were so fast and they hadn't figured out aerodynamics properly yet,

    True on the Muira and also on the C2. It was hit or miss in those days, mostly miss.

    I think it caused a few catastrophic accidents.
    The ferrari gtc 330 is nice too.
    have I got good taste or what?

    not so much

    In fact I'd even take a 67 (long nose) GTC over a 365 GTB4 and also over a Lusso. Don't care for the 68 as much because of the side marker lamps. At a job 45 years ago, I did occasionally use a trade-in 66 (short nose) GTS as a parts chasing car.

    The GTC sorta explains why I also like the Rivolta so much.



    I love the sound of that M-20 as well

    I saw this Jaguar XJ8 the other day (17 years old, 36k on the clock and in excellent order) and I'm really tempted to get it. I'm just not sure I can justify running two cars.

    But only the 327 because the 427 has the pie pan. Ruins the car IMO

    Nice.

    To make it easier, I only have one of them here in Ohio. Winters are just to hard on them, even sitting in the garage. The other two are in my house in Santa Monica that I have rented out. The 'girls' thought it was too hard backing out into the alley so I rented everything but the garage. Talk about lucky.

    The ivory 61 389-348 HO tri-power and emerald 66 421-376 HO tri-power are top engine offerings, so much more valuable than the silver 63 I have here.

    Nice collection of Yank tanks above, I however don't have a classic, i have a Volvo C70 convertible and a Land Rover Defender, not quite in the same league, if I had to pick one old classic and one new future classic it would be the ISO Griffo and the Aston DBS v12

    True

    My old Pontiac are very reliable so not much to do there. However, cosmetics are another matter. Those are three BIG cars and shoots the entire day when I'd detail all three, plus I had two daily drivers that I took real good care of.

    I believe this is a 427 but without the pie pan. Perfect!



    And Jesus the way these sound!

    Edit: Nope, the vid says it's a 327 and that the hood won't clear the intake on the 427. Ok, that's what I've also understood.
