Today was the big annual car show in Fortuna, and after stripping wood all morning, I took a break to head on over and take a look at all the hot rods on display. One of my favorites was this 1970 Plymouth Superbird RoadRunner. In 1970, Dad purchased a Plymouth Satelite, and if you look at the side of this car, you’ll notice that it is the same car, only with a few extras. I remember at the time trying to convince Dad he should buy the RoadRunner instead of the Satelite, but obviously Dad was too practical to listen to a 10 year old’s advice when it came to new car shopping. Of course now a 22 year old Satelite is worth about $500, and this RoadRunner is worth $79,000. Looks like I was pretty smart, even as a ten year old.
Note: Superbirds continue to rise in price. Now in 2019, Superbirds in good condition regularly sell for over $200K.
