10k: Show Winner: 1961 Pontiac Tempest Sedan

Cars that take first prize in things like the Pontiac Oakland Club International car show are not typically in the DT price range.  However, a Trophy 4 powered Tempest 4-door isn’t exactly a highly desired collector car, so it isn’t surprising that the nicest one around is offered for about the same price as a burnt out hulk of a 911 chassis.  Find this 1961 Pontiac Tempest Sedan offered for $11,000 in Minneapolis, MN via hemmings.

The first thing that jumps right out is the strange aftermarket rear fender skirt (which could be easily removed by a new owner if those sort of things offend you), but that second thing is that is a really nice looking unrestored car from the 60s.  The seller claims only 18k miles on the odometer and one two owners since new.
