1970 Dodge Monaco: Yachting TTS-style…

1970 Dodge Monaco - 1

Cars like this Dodge Monaco are the reason that Americans were able to function for so long without minivans, SUVs, crossovers, MPVs, and, well, you get the picture. You see, cars used to be big.

That the Viper ever made it past the show car stage was a testament to the fact that the Big Three can deliver, when the mood strikes them.

This low-mileage red example here on eBay in Chesaning, Michigan with a buy-it-now price $28,495 could very well represent an increasingly rare opportunity to get an “as new” Viper for less than the price of a new Camry. We think they’ll only go up in value from here.
