    Flashback: Road&Track Magazine January 1968

    A friend owns a beautiful Lotus Elan +2, and he recently purchased a pristine copy of Road&Track magazine from January 1968 that has a road test of his car.

    What I found interesting was in the back of this issue were two BMW 507s shown for sale with one listing in France for $6000 or better USD.

    Using an inflation calculator, $6000 in 1968 translates to $40,000 in 2012. Talk about your inflation hedge!

    Here's a posting for a few Ferrari's from that issue as well.

    I also found it interesting that people listed their addresses, simpler times indeed. Anyone for a barn find search?

    For about $20000, you could buy all these cars then - or a Toyota Camry today

    So the 507 was more than a GTO then? By a large margin. Interesting.
