    I'd love to have any '65-'70 Pontiac GTO, or a '68 Dodge Charger R/T.

    '69 Olds 442 with a 455 big block in place of the 400 it came with.

    My cousin found a 69 Mustang in a storage garage. It was covered up but he could see what it was. Paid about $4000. Pulled the cover off and it was a Shelby with a Mustang front end. Sat in storage for years. Then he sold it to my dad for what he had in it. The car is in pieces and he is slowly restoring it. It is far from complete but the bones are there. I'm guessing its worth $15K as it sits.

    "Duel" I believe, but I think the car in the movie was a Valiant.

    No, "Duel" was the movie where the 18-wheeler was trying to kill Dennis Weaver.
