    Not sure how excited I can get over a Z being on the same list as an AMC Pacer

    Pacers are so ugly and unusual they're actually kind of cool, but yeah, I get what you mean.

    The comments under the article suggest where this ''Hagerty'' stuff can be filed . What a waste of type and story - leave it to an insurance seller to tell
    anyone what things are worth , let alone collectable ! Only in the last few years have they decided to play nice with us - this drivel is too ''sweet''.

    Interesting and acurate. The 280 is a bargain car - I think people are going to figure that out and they will become harder to find <5K.

    I know for the investment side of it the earlier 240's are the wiser move

    NADA Classic Car Value:

    Retail Average
    Retail High
    Retail
    Base Price $6,400 $11,050 $19,600

    But the better bang for the buck may be below:

    Base Price $3,275 $5,700 $9,900
    ----------------------------------------------
    As compared to (Hagerty says this is a top buy for under $5000 - who would buy it?? - It's barely worth what it cost new!)

    They also recommended a Fiat (Fix It Again Tony) Spider. Not sure sure I'm happy to be associated with that group.
