my brother's first car was a 69 LeMans convert, bought about the same time, I think it was 1980, for $150. It had 144,000 miles on it, funny how you remember these things 32 years later..(the guy was firm on his price!) Had a 350 in it, he was taking automotive in high school, had a valve job done on it for about $50, and man, did that sucker move out when he got it back!
We had tons of fun with that car, cruising around Hampton Beach in NH, back when we were kids.
He had it about 3 or 4 years, til he sat down in the drivers seat, and the frame went south. I bought my 67 GTO convert about a year after that..I sold mine after a year or two. If we had only known......
