“I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.”

An explanation: I got sucked down the rabbit hole and made both in one night. Then, I completely botched the scheduling. I don’t know if I will repost tomorrow when it was supposed to.

After my recent post on a startlingly pristine 1983 Dodge Shelby Charger, a local Oppo, My X-type is too a real Jaguar, mentioned that the dealership is known for carrying some strange inventory. And holy crap is he right!

Alongside that unlikely slow Shelby lies a number of other out-of-place classics. And also some that are not so classic, from Honda minibikes to a 28,000 mile Ford Tempo. Their mainstay seems to be big American sedans and ex-police cars. However, they appear to stock literally any vehicle that is very good condition, no matter how old, obscure, or difficult to sell it might be, and all at exorbitant prices. Many of these 40 year old 40k mile cars are mixed in with high mileage minivans! Just who are selling to anyways?

So without further adieu, I give you the best of Cherokee Auto Group’s website.

1960 Ford Lola Thunder Roadster

I don’t know what I am looking at so allow me to let the dealer tell you.

Just in is this quite unique 1-owner never raced or wreaked 1-of-1 set up like this street legal & tagged & Georgia registered as a 1960 Ford Lola factory Legend Thrunder Roadster! This has so many up-grades & features over the standard Thunder Roadster so take a close look and see what your buying! This originally was built from factory new to be raced in the “LEGEND THUNDER ROADSTER SERIES”

This hot rod has the high revving ultra strong Yamaha 140hp 1250cc liquid cooled sealed 4cyl with tri-carb set up & rarley seen sequential 5-speed manual.

I really can’t figure this single seat track toy out. And the asking price? $21,000!

78,000 mile ‘91 F150

That last car was interesting and carried a hefty price tag. But what do you get for $18,000? Why, a 78,000 mile ‘91 F150, of course! What other car is included? Why none, of course! Why are you walking away?

63,000 mile Dodge Spirit

Well, this is about as unexpected as that Tempo. Just a normal K car, but in immaculate condition. But still, $5,000 seems a little steep. Where do they find these things? And who buys these things off them? Apparently they make enough profit to stay in business somehow.

‘89 Nissan Pulsar hatchback

This Pulsar may have 120,000 miles on the clock, but it hardly looks broken in. And, a 5 speed manual! Sadly it does not have the optional wagon top to replace the removable trunk/hatch thing with. I’m starting to get annoyed with their crappy photography.

 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado Brougham with all the velour! (and much vinyl!)

I have no words for this mid 80s excess. How did someone get this to 100k miles without a scratch? The only noticeable wear I see is the driver’s dead pedal. This one has been sold, but I guess they kept it on their website for a keepsake.

Also featured: a 5 speed Bronco II, too many retro Ford Thunderbirds, and an absolute base Ford Explorer in enviable condition. Really, where do they find these thing?

So, which of these masterpieces would you drive home in?
