Or how about something that hasn't been caught in the Barrett-Jackson hysteria yet? Hemmings Classic Cars had an interesting article about "forgotten classics" a while ago, and some of the cars they listed are actually really cool. The cars they were talking about were early or mid-70's Buicks, Oldsmobiles, AMCs and other cars that don't have much collector value. Seems like you can pick up really nice cars in the $4,000-5,000 range. Could even be an investment, I'm sure that some of these will increase in price as the supply of affordable classics of the more popular models dries up.
