    Well Rick, if you had the coin would you buy that car or a 911 GT3 RS if you had to choose?

    That's kinda like asking if you want a sledge hammer or a scalpel.

    Just for the record, I'll take the sledge hammer.

    I'll take the scalpel. Actually I'd prefer a 2018 GT3 not the GT3 RS.

    Many modern goodies on these.
    Now if someone will be kind enough to start a GoFundMe page for me, I'll take a '69 Boss in Acapulco Blue please.

    Acapulco Blue with flat black reflective stripes. Only have two pictures. This one and one that's faded color. She could turn high 13's stock at Englishtown back then. She's the reason I bought my '12.

    68 Olds weighted in around 3700 pounds. I think my Boss was about 3200 curb weight. Olds = 350 HP - Boss = 290 HP advertised. Can't ever recall running up against a 442 but I bet it would be very close in the quarter mile.

    Back in that tyme frame (late 60's to 70), everybody and their brother had a hot Rod to sell you. Most of them were legit! Until Gov't restrictions tightened up and all was lost for a while.....don't even want to mention what the Mustang was at that tyme. My '68 442 had a 400CI, but as you said was much heavier than your Boss. I think your Boss would have got me.
