Tax Day Challenge

amc-sc-rambler-barn-find-rear-end

Today you fit in one of two groups, those who pay or those who get paid. That’s right folks, today is tax day. We hope you have already filed your returns because everything is due tonight. To cheer up those of us who had to divvy up some cash, we wanted to have a challenge. The average tax refund this year is $2,755, so we want to see how many classics our readers can dig up for under that amount. Please share your links in the comments section below. Happy hunting!

      I saw that one too–blue one. It was an automatic so slow as can be.

        I had a strippo 89 like that & for what it was it was really quite nice also paid 1,800 & was quite mint, for the $’s I would buy it again. & if I needed a car right now I would be all over this powder blue one.
