Resto-mod classics are the only way to go. $5000 frame and chassis, $5000 motor, $5000 interior refurbishing, $5000 in labor for highly technical tasks

$20,000 in pure American non tracked perfection - with all new components, parts, and interior

And it’s fun as hell. I helped my friend build a 69 Eleanor and 69 camaro and I’m looking at an old school Pontiac or Oldsmobile as we speak.

Plus they look dope as fuck and are actually reliable

I've always been a fan of these myself.

I've been shopping for a new car, for almost a year, and it fucking sucks. I can get a 10 year old model with 100k miles for about 65-75% of a CPO, and a CPO for about 80-90% of a new model.

I don't want all the electronics because one fails tends to take out everything, plus I don't want tracking so I don't want gps built in, not like built in navigation is better than any cell phone or gps unit.

Do they make one that gets >60 mpg? Otherwise it's a deal-breaker.

If you want gas mileage and simplicity then get a motorcycle.

Nothing gets better than 60mpg that you would want to drive on the highway in The Untied States everyday. You can definitely get an old car to get 30mpg highway if that's what you built it for.
