ya but you would need to get money from that time period. You wouldnt be able to just take $30,000 from the current time like a $100 bill made in 2000 and expect the dealer to take it. He be like, "what the hell are you some guy from future."

Go to a bank and ask for older currency, or a mint.

Barrett-Jackson Circus.PLEASE!! I grew up in those years.I bought those cars,drove them,worked on them.They aren't worth $hit to me.Yea,some have sentimental value,and I still own a couple,but NO F'IN WAY would I spend my money today on a golden turd from the past.Are you kidding?Let's put this into perspective.For 5 MILLION you could buy;A new Viper in every color offered,A new Shelby GT500 in every color offered,A new Ford GT is every color offered,a new Z06 Corvette in every color offered,A new ZX-14 in every color,a new Harley-Davidson in each model and color offered,a custom touring motor home with a built-in garage to carry your favorite car(Good luck choosing one)build a 20k square foot garage equpiied with every tool imaginable and hire a guy full time to take care of all your cars,AND STILL HAVE 2.3 MILLION dollars left to blow! OR....buy the super snake automatic,car.No contest for me...

I would go back in time with 5 oz of gold, cash it in.. then go to the dog races.. and since i was smart enough to track the dog race winners and bid on the races then i would have the money.. then i would put it in a mutual fund and go forward in time 50 years, and withdrawl it all, then put it in a different mutual fund, and go back to current date, and be rich as a mofo.. then i would buy a GEO Storm and build it with custom forged internals and a turbo kit with like 25 lbs, with the body in horrable condition, and the front wheels wide with R-Compound slicks.. and smoke everyone to make them feel like asses.. the rest i would purchase cheetos.. and hot pockets.. and like 40 foci.. all black.. and have them all different.. 10 NA, 10 Turbo, 10 Super, and 10 Turbo/Super... what?

Make it easy on yourself.Go back in time and just buy the golden Cobra turd for 9k.Thats what they were in 1966,new.Or waited a few years and bought them for 5k, used.They weren't popular because they rode HARD,sucked fuel BAD and did not even have a top or side windows.Nobody but racers wanted them.Really.I was there.If I had only known,I wouldn't have wasted all my money on motorcycles,women,booze,drugs,trucks,and the "wrong" cars...
