They Notice Them Now

In the last two or three weeks, I have had people
comment on my car. I want to share a few: On the
Baltimore Beltway in stop and go traffic, a car two lanes
over started blowing his horn. I rolled down my window
to hear: I love your car!!! What year is it? And
just the other night, over in town, I was just getting
in when a passer by said "Don't ever sale that car.
It is such a classic that it can only go through the
roof in value." They were great cars when thay were
new so I am glad that people take notice of them
today. Don

I agree with you about them. I absolutly love my
79 hawk. Recently I was looking ata used car dealer
that sells pretty much all newer stuff for a newer
ASTRO van (forgive me please its for my wife) He
noticed my skyhawk and asked about it. When he found out
what good shape it was in and how it was equpied and
how few miles it had (80K).
He first ried to buy
it for cash NO then he tryed to get me to trade it
in and tryed to offer me 1500$ in trade towards the
van I was looking at. I VERY firmly told him it was
NOT for sale PERIOD. Im in the process of trying to
restore the interior back into orginal showroom as
possable,Hard to do considring I live out in a desert and the
car was never garaged, Body wise its very stright
other than 2 small dents on the left top of the front
fender (very fixable), I alway enjoy driving it. And
hopefully get it repainted soon late summer early fall, I
very lucky that the guy I bouhgt it from for 300$
didnt realize what he had there. Later Jon

Lots of different things are leading up to people
noticing them. For the younger generation, it's a new
style that they haven't seen or don't know. For the
rest, it's a car they remember from their past.


When I take mine out or talk about it, at least half
the people have a story about a Monza. Everywhere I
stop, people ask me about it, but an IMSA bodied car
will always attract attention. What I find interesting
are the number of questions they ask and the stories
they have. They ALL think it's amazing there's a V8 in
there. It's like no one remembers they CAME with V8's...


Oh well, I will simply agree that the attention is
welcome. I can appreciate your comment. All I can say is
"Let's enjoy it!" I know I do...

Joe
