It's amazing how much this one looks like the old one from the 60s.

however the 1967 model sits up a little higher. Road in one way back 'when' with an acquaintance, and after moving, flooring the pedal would snap your head back.

I've never really been into ''sporty'' cars so much. In the 80's I had a 1966 Galaxie 500 convertible, black with red and white interior. Had a 390 I think. I loved it but not a very practical car in New York City in the mid-80s.

Looked a lot like the one on this page. I'm tempted to get another one.

For an old car it had a beautiful ride and was extremely powerful. Not so economical though.

The Hummers were going for 10 grand+ over invoice when they first came out.

There was the guy I talked to in 1988...

...who had one of the first Mazda Miatas. He went on and on about the car, and I agreed that it was nice. then, I asked him what he paid for it. He said that he'd paid $22,000 for it against a sticker of $15,500.

Let's see...he paid $6,500 over sticker for a car that at the minute he rolled it off the lot depreciated by at least $2,000. Sorry, that does not compute.

Besides, I can do that in the tech industry for a lot less money; all I have to do is be an early adopter of any new gadget, or as one friend calls them, ''second stage beta testers.'' Devil

Knew someone that bought one of the first Miatas. I suppose if you're in the income bracket where it doesn't matter, it's not a big deal, but I gotta figure most in that area are buying the classic car and fixing it to mint or something new & sporty in an entirely different price bracket.

I think it only took about 5 years for Miatas to become "midpriced" cars in the Mazda line!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
