well I see he changed the price in the description to 65k from 69.5k. His best chance was the first time he listed it. Any time a car gets re-listed weather its R & M Barret jackson, or what ever all the excitement is gone and questions arise if you have to re-list it.most of the time the never gets near where it went the first time.
Good luck with that car, I think all our members did a great job picking it apart, for any potential buyers here.

I assume you really meant 'notating it's deficiencies' rather than 'picking it apart'??  :)

   I had to chuckle at this.....At work we are having a restructure and layoffs as a result. The people making the decisions are of the younger crowd so loyalty to the company no longer matters and has been replaced by increasing profits to the share holders regardless. Anyhow...they no longer say people were terminated, let go, fired etc..... The new word is "they have transitioned from the company". I guess this sounds less harsher and more PC today.  ;)

I do not believe that Drivers dash should be wood grain. Or else so should the steering wheel center. I think the wheel is correct.

"Sorry" if you old gear heads assume I am one of these liberal granola brains politically correct types. I am one of the younger guys here, but I  just call it like I see it, and apologize if I make a mistake or step on somebodies toes.
But in the case of this car the seller invites criticism by calling it a "barn find", he may not realize all that is incorrect or been changed in the 22k of miles it accumulated. I also think ignorance is no excuse. If your selling a car for that much money know what you are talking about, instead trying to sound like you know.
I enjoy the insights of our crew here, even Jimmy V chiming in today (on the second listing) about the wood grain. ROCK on CRG members! (even if you own a hugger orange camaro  :D )

'transitioned'..  ugh...  the ones that should 'transition' are the ones coining these terms and making these decisions...
Yeah, it sucks ...  I'm sure the 'doublespeak' that is common today results from 'conditioned learning'  as taught by our federal government 'leaders' (the worst doublespeak term of all)..   The older I get the less patience I have with all that crap.. :(

Nice looking car. Black grill. Could have sworn I saw this one at a car show in CT 10-12 years ago. I think I remember the Atco stickers, but not sure. Love the color.

I am getting a little tired of seeing "barn finds" - I prefer the term "barn car". Here's my version of a true "barn car" - the car and the barn are legitimate ( a little dark, but you get the picture). Barn storage, even with rodents, birds, skunks, possums and cats, is still preferable to outside storage any day of the week. The causation is lack of space; or really, a lack of funding to expand the garage or build one large enough to accommodate the hobby.

Donations accepted for the "Save the Camaro" fund - LOL.

Regards,
Steve

That asking price has to be an error. I'll buy it now at 28K if it's legit and real and I'm no Z-28 lover.
Why even have a bid for it and not a Buy Me Now option?

the seller has zero feedback, I would stay skeptical, especially since it has been listed twice already.

 I had sent the seller an email to clarify if the asking price of $26K was in in error and if it isn't an then why not a 'buy me now' option instead of a bid.
My thinking is this person is new and possibly didn't submit the ad correctly.
