I competed in demo derbies for about 20 years. It's crazy to think of the value of some of those cars now.

Back in the 60's and again in the early 70's we did demo derbies at Danbury Speedway, Middletown and Catskill Kerhonksen
We used 53 and 54 chevys, mercs and fords
Just seatbelt and a helmet

I'm not saying that $85,000 isn't a lot, but the performance of that vette is unmatched at that price.

I got my license in 72 and it was $.36/gallon
Then the gas shortage BS happened in late 73.
Rationing, 55MPH national limit, etc.
Crazy.

Remember the days when we collected soda bottles and cashed them in at the local general store to buy gas. Big bottles @ 5 cents / small bottles @ 2 cents

Other options:
 Cut small lawn $1
Rake small lawn 1$
Wash car 50 cents
Deliver groceries by bicycle from local general store 2 mile limit 25 cents
And not to forget, pick apples at 5 cents a bushel

Yet, I still always wanted a Gremlin.

I always wanted to drop a small block V8 into one.

I just watched a show the other day where they dropped a Hemi into a Gremlin.  Show is called Roadkill.
