During Thanksgiving week last year we got on a turkey kick. (Then again, who didn’t?) One of our featured automotive turkeys was the 1974 Plymouth Satellite that was featured here.
That was the car that lit the fire for my son Jimmy to become a car owner. Although we passed on the Plymouth, the story had a happy ending when Jimmy ended up with a big cat instead of a turkey (CC here).
But wait – just like some leftovers way back in the fridge, the golden Satellite re-appeared in another parking lot yesterday, and still for sale. Although this car was a turkey in the marketplace of its day, it is a very nice original example of a car that today is seldom seen. The owner must have gotten the car running properly, because the price is now up to $2,600. The price of turkey is going up–and I am starting to salivate all over again.
