Let's not forget the simple reason too - there are just fewer of these cars 
anyway - they rust out, etc.  Cars from the 80's on don't really qualify, 
and the earlier ones, well... some just expire.  And, as someone else 
points out, they get expensive, so it's a supply and demand sort of 
thing.  Also the people who dreamed of them as teenagers are now old enough 
as adults to afford them, so between a declining population (they ain't 
makin' any more of them) and a more hectic lifestyle, there's just less and 
less all the time.
