Value: $124,000
Original price: $4880

Today's Buick Regal GS harkens back to cars like this. There was less concern for fuel economy when the GSX came out. This GSX was powered by a 455 cubic inch V8 rated at 360 horsepower with a massive 510 foot pounds of torque. No turbocharged four-cylinder here.

They don't make Buicks this way anymore and they probably never will again. Hence, the high price tag on surviving models.
