23. Plymouth Roadrunner Hemi
If you want to be a cooler middel-aged driver without an expensive foreign car, you can always get a restored classic muscle car. Classic muscle cars are something you probably remember seeing as a child. And you may have always promised yourself you’d finally get shiny piece of Americana on wheels. One of the best is the Plymouth Roadrunner Hemi.
When it first appeared in 1968, the Plymouth Roadrunner was an influential and important muscle car. The whole idea behind the Roadrunner was simple; present a low-priced but powerful vehicle with a crazy name and graphics. It came with the powerful 383 V8 as the base, and buyers could opt for the 440 or mythical Hemi 426. For just above $3,000, you could be the proud owner of a Roadrunner in 1970.
However, if you wanted a few options and the Hemi engine, the price would quickly rise to over $4,000. Today, Hemi Road Runners are the most sought-after versions. Examples in perfect condition are over $100,000. If you want one in the signature Plum Crazy purple color, be ready to pay extra for that privilege.
