A new year means Kissimmee
Things are off to a good start. Among the good deals on C4 Corvettes there is a stunning Z28 and an out of the box thinking American GT from Ford.
First the 1978 Z28 a malaise muscle car icon. The color is right, it has T-tops and huge on my list a swapped in M21 Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. This beauty still has it's original 350 V8. The only downside is the hammer came down just over the $25K threshold. Still, I call this a win for the new owner.
When I say malaise era American GT what do you think of? A Ford Granada, right? Wait, hear me out. The classic definition of a GT is a mix of performance and comfortable luxury. A fun long road trip car. Granted, I'm stretching the truth here a bit. Yet this is a cool ride with the comfort of a plush Granada and the power of a hot 302 V8 backed by a 4 speed manual. The new owner will have the only one at Cars & Coffee. Did I mention Kermit the Frog green? Hammered for the nice price of $7.7K.
I'll be back to wrap up Kissimmee next week.
