Someone just paid $1,705,000 for a 40-year old Dodge today in Scottsdale, AZ!  Muscle cars might be a better investment than the NYSE.  It's a 1 of 1 ever produced white with red interior '70 Cuda conv powered by a 426 Hemi with auto trans:

Thats pretty crazy, I'm not sure I'd want the Challenger over the Gullwing or Cobra.

Or, the Gullwing AND the Cobra AND the Cadillac and still have some pocket money left over

The things I could do with 1.7 million... It wouldn't include a Hemi. They even left the M out of Plymouth.

For 1970, Plymouth produced a total of 14 Hemi 'Cuda Convertibles, 9 had the automatic trans and 5 had the 4-speed manual trans.  The Hemi 'Cuda Convertible is widely recognized as the Holy Grail of the musclecar world.  So, outrageous prices are to be expected.  However, I would be hard pressed to find any single car that I would pay $1.7 million to own.

But, there are people who can, and do purchase cars for unbelievable prices.  One of the 6 Bugatti Type 41 Royale produced sold for an astounding $8.7 million .  .  . in 1983 !  According to Supercars.net, that equates to over $16 million in 2011 dollars.  I would love to have the discretionary income that would allow me to even consider  such a purchase.  Actually, I'd love to even have 1 percent  of that discretionary income .  .  .
