Well guys I saw this story abut a classic car dealer in Illinois that burned down, with 150 cars inside. I decided to look through his inventory online, to see if there was any notable or any historic cars in there.
Well I did find this 68 Camaro. ( I think the fire may have done this car a favor) :-X

Here is his site:

and here is the story on the fire:

Looks like a old style junkyard now.  :-\

I know the old saying is "that beauty is in the eye of the beholder" but man that thing is ugly! Just my opinion of course.  :D

I think someone, maybe Bentley, posted that car on the yenko site in the eBay area. Horrible

I concur with all the other comments here as well, the auto world got a bit poorer even before the fire. So sad, rip baby, I'll be thinking of you every time I drive mine.  :-*

With all that extra flaring, that car deserved a cowl hood.

PURESS, I love the quote at the bottom of that CL ad :"A lot of people donot even know what kind of car it is."

made me laugh. Is that a selling point, if people don't know what kind of car you started with?
