We all own Camaros and are trying to get it all correct, does that mean we are all OCD?

So I feel like I can weigh in on this as it looks like so far I am the youngest one here. Being that I'm only 27 I must say that I'm into this because I literally grew up with it and racing. Like I said in previous posts my Dad had a 1969 Daytona Yellow Rally-Z. Now that I'm a little older I wanted ken myself. I've thought about that car so much and it has been brought up many times over the heads about how nice a car it could of been if it was done better. Well now that I found a true Daytona Yellow (X-33) car I'm going it make it look exactly like my Dad's did roughly 24 years ago.

Some people say don't make  a z/28 into a Rally-Z but for me it's what I've always thought about and what I remember. I will never get rid of my car so resale value is not that important to me. Plus I've had many conversations with my Dad and Uncle about wether these cars are even going to be worth anything 30-40 years from now. Here's a few examples why... who can afford them? I busted my butt to get a rolling body (X-33). It wasn't exactly cheap by any means. My wife will never be able to drive a non power steering, 4-speed car. Driving my Uncles Copo with no power steering and 4-speed wasn't a walk in the park but to me it was fun. Can't say anyone else I know considers "Driving" a car fun.

These pictures are now 24 years old. Man time flys!

Dy,

  Many of us have been where you are. Some stay the die-hard puritan path while others deviate and make it into what they want it to be for reasons that only matter to them.
What matters most is what you want.
As Jimmy Hendrix said in the lyrics  ' If 6 was a 9' :
I've got my own life to live
I'm the one that's gotta die
When it's time for me to die
So let me live my life the way... I want to.


  That's how I Live my life, and so should we all.
Your Camaro is a better investment compared to the boat (bust out another thousand) in the picture.
Do what you want to and never regret it.

Mike

I agree with everything you said, I'm going to make the car the way I remember it and the way the pictures show.  I can't wait to take a picture in front of my completed Rally-Z now that I'm old (27).

That is what I'm doing--and I got 20 birthdays on you --been with the car 38 years this spring. If opinions didn't vary ,we'd still all be driving Model T's---black. Your car looks great BTY.

no worries, all I'm saying is we all have our things we like a certain way. For Tom he likes the polls logically planned and well thought out and tested. I started a poll last month only to see little flaws after the fact. Tongue It is what it is man...
I appreciate you taking the time to post it. Cheesy

I can feel for both sides of this discussion, but for me personally I think my Mom once summed it up pretty well.  "I don't think they will ever build a car that you guys will leave the way it is"!  My brother and I have both bought brand new cars an brought them right home and put on Mag wheels and different Tires, etc. the very same day.  Thus, why my car is the way it is.  There was nothing Rare about the car as it was, so why not?  BTW, my brother and I are in the group were in our teens  when these new, so IF we had bought one of these new in the day it probably would have ended up exactly the way it is now.

Well, as much as I lean toward stock,  Dy rally isn't doing anything that couldn't be changed back, it sounds like just bolt on stuff for the most part. So if his kid gets the car and wants to make it stock it could be done.
Anybody can do anything with a car they own is true, I just prefer most owners don't make mods to the cars that are more than paint and nut and bolt items.
I am not very old but have seen my share of fender flares, cut up floors , and sun roofs installed, and thought each time.."man thats to bad" . IMO hotrods lend themselves to these ideas, they look like more of a blank canvas to me. To the 80 yr old guys though maybe they like those all stock.
different goats for different folks I guess

Not so sure stock vs modified is an age thing, more of an affinity.

As far as me making my Z/28 into a Rally-Z I'm going all the way that it's going to be near impossible to be said otherwise. We are cutting the hole in the fire wall for the vacuum line, it already had RS fenders with tabs, buying the rear tail lamp template to cut out the back up lights, RS inner fenders, etc. I'm doing it all the way. If there's anything I missed someone message me please.  The car is going to be with me for the long haul. As far as giving it to one of my kids...the way I see it I'm 27 now and my wife and I haven't even started yet. By the time my kids would be old enough I doubt they would have much interest in a then 60ish year old car that's not easy to drive. Who knows what we all will be driving 20 years from now.
I wanted to buy my Uncles 69 COPO very bad but the thing that was weighing in my mind was would it be worth the 80k I spent on it 50 years from now?

80k for a copo depending on condition would be a good deal. It costs quite a bit to restore a car the right way. I don't know what your initial investment was but when you figure paint and all of the small stuff it gets expensive. How about a pic of the copo?

DyRally,
If you know anyone who has a rally sport you could refer to it would help. My brother did his while my Rally was sitting beside it and he threw away the instructions and templates.

It was in camaros.net. He said he didn't get many offers on it. So does that say anything for a rotisserie restored, highly optioned numbers matching minus engine COPO as far as the prices go?
