I don't like the the money aspect of this hobby... it's killing all the REAL Camaro lovers ability to have fun, however buy them now while they are cheaper. The market will correct it's self in time. As stated earlier in this thread the 68 built the market for the 69.
I hear ya VT!
I remember when I bought my 67 L35 hardtop back when people were getting rid of big motor cars after the 2nd gas crunch, I spent $4000 for it because I loved the 67 body. My L35 ragtop, I paid $500 for it because the motor was locked up (spun rod bearing caused that) and the front end was hit. The car sat for years in a yard rotting until I rescued it. It was a gamble but as it turned out the block was good otherwise so I continued to restore it.
All the years I have had them (+30 years) I never thought of selling them even during times when I needed money when raising a young family.
Now, those days are behind me and I am glad I kept the cars. I am so attached to them that the money they are worth now means nothing to me and I have both in a will to my children when I leave this life.
Sorry to deviate from the topic but being we are talking about Camaro altruism, I figured what the heck.
