It's pretty disconcerting when I see classic car prices going lower and lower.
Don't get me wrong, I think everyone should have the opportunity to own and love a classic ride. The lower prices do encourage average joe/joleen to experience the glory of having complete strangers mouthing "niceeee" whether you can hear them or not.
