    It's 1972. What car are you going to buy?

    It's 1972, and you're going to buy a new car. What are you going to buy? It has to be officially imported to your country, so no gray imports, and no used cars. So what's it going to be?

    1972 is the start of the "grey years" for cars in the states, the "grey market" came later. :P

    For me it would be a Ferrari Daytona. :mrgreen:

    That's why I picked 1972. It makes it more of a challenge. Also, I said "a car", not "a car collection."
