Good point, about the Baby Boomers. For some reason, American muscle cars (loosely, from 1964 to 1972) remain not only indefatigably popular and expensive, but outright iconic. I too like the 1967 Camaro and the 1964 GTO and the the 1970 Barracuda and so forth, but for a large portion of American enthusiasts, these aren't merely interesting or appealing cars; they're something holy and sublime. They completely dominate the imagination. I wonder if this veneration will eventually pass, once the Baby Boomers graduate from canvas lawn-chairs at car-shows, to electric beds in nursing homes. And once Gen-X takes over - "if" we ever take over - what would then become popular and iconic?
