Yea, but now look at how much a mint y88 goes for.

Yep, but that's with 30 years of hindsight.  In 1972 I could have gotten a Corvette with a 4 speed for a mere $3,000.  It was "used" but only had 4,000 miles on it before it was repo'd.  I didn't have $3,000.  Look at what it would be worth today.

Exactly!  Around 1973 or 1974 I was thinking about buying a 1963 Corvette.  A nice one was around $3K.  Around the mid 80's you could pick up a fully loaded Trans Am with low mileage for around $3K.

In 1978, the cost of that Y88 upgrade was almost a month's salary...before taxes!  GM was cashing in.  But they are beautiful cars.
