'67 was the best-ever full-size Chevy panel IMHO. Love how the instruments are behind a clear plastic cover.
I'd like a radio and an uncracked dash pad on mine, though.

The roads were the factor, for sure. Especially pre 1920s, when there were virtually no paved roads outside of cities.
Cars age better now than ever - styling evolution has slowed, paint is better. The Infiniti owner needs to invest 15 minutes on those lights, it would be worth it (for safety too).

One bad feature of my Integra was the lights. Quite yellowed, and opaque. But, the seller threw in a cleaning kit he had bought but never used. 15 or so minutes with that, and they went from yellow to clear. Effectively look like new now. I highly recommend it to anyone with cloudy lights. A whole heck of a lot cheaper than new lenses or light assemplies!

Yeah the kits work. I did my stepdad's 03 Camry two/three years ago. They looked great for a while, but now starting to cloud again.

The 41 year-old female driver plunged 65 feet off a bridge on the PA Turnpike in the Philly suburbs, landed on the railroad tracks below...and survived!

"They looked great for a while, but now starting to cloud again. "
I figure when the time comes to polish them, I'll follow up with a set of those protective films to make it last longer.
