I love a good classic American 70s wagon as much as the next guy, but I was frankly astounded and flabbergasted when I discovered that a 5k mile 78 Ford LTD Country Squire sold on Bringatrailer.com for an eye watering $45,000 yesterday. Forget the corona virus, there is a far greater threat to humanity — the paytoomuchforoldcrap virus!! Yes, it has awesome wood siding and the odo shows a shocking low number of miles…BUT…BUT…you can’t drive it because it’ll soon have 10k miles and then 50k miles and then be worth about $3k. Yes, your 401k is shedding $45k every time the virus rate is updated, but there is no reason to throw money away at the time when the economic future is uncertain…so you should consider, instead, picking up this 1979 Dodge Aspen Wagon offered for $3000 in Pearce, AZ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
