Move on. It won't be the same as it was back then. Just picture the 70 yr old guy slicking back his hair and going to a 50's dance......

It will probably last longer than a $7000 outdrive. Go for it

Tough call, nice car, but seems a little much for a non SS, even though it does have the motr, and is optioned out.

Some things are better left to memmories. I will bet that the car drives better, faster, and more comfortable in your mind than it ever will in person, and you will feel guilty not driving it and keeping it polished. Especially if it is not the exact same one, I'd pass on it.
