68 327, PG with original ac and added front disc brakes.  I bought it five years ago and paid $17500 for it.  It had had a partial restoration two years before (and a little bit of cloning, which I have corrected).  I've put around $5k into it since I got it.

Currently own the following:
1969 Camaro Indy Pace Car.  Bought in 2000 from little old lady in West Virginia who was the original owner.  It had been sitting in a barn since 1979.  I paid $14,500.
1969 Camaro X44.  Bought in 2006 for $4,000.  Actually, all I bought was a shell from the firewall back. 

I used to own:
1969 Camaro X44.  Paid $90 for it in 1986 and drove it home.  It was ugly and my first project car.  It came out awesome and I later sold it to a car dealer at a wholesale auction for $3,100 (a ton of money to me back then) so I could buy a 1979 Trans Am with T-tops.

1969 Camaro Z/28 for $10 in Homestead, FL in 1993 (no engine or trans).  I was a roofer doing work right after hurricane Andrew and saw the car sitting in the front yard of a not very nice house in a not very nice neighborhood.  The lady on the front porch told me to give her $10 and I could take it.  I sprained my wrist reaching into my pocket to get her the money.  By today's standards, it was very restorable (and I should have) but I chose to part it out.  The posi rear and all of the manual transmission parts made it into my other 1969 Camaro.

1969 Camaro X11.  Paid $1000 in 1991 and was a complete restoration in which it became an SS350 clone.

1968 Camaro covertible.  Paid $1600 in 1998.  My first subframe off restoration.  Sold it for $16000 and bought my pace car.

I also bought a 1968 Chevelle SS396 with almost every option you could get back then.  (I would love to find an equally optioned 69 Camaro SS396).  It ran, but it needed some work.  I only paid $350 for it.  I just could not get into Chevelle and abandoned the project half way through so I could buy another 1969 Camaro.

Hey guys- new to forum. I bought my '68 SS in Sept. '83 from the 2nd owner for $2300. Original 350/295, Muncie M20, 12 bolt posi w/4.10s and original black std. interior. Pulled the 350, (it's still on the engine stand) rebuilt the 4spd, and dropped in a 327/350hp. that I already had. That motor was a screamer! Since '02 the car's received a "killer" 350, (actually 355) an Auto Gear M22W, and interior work by CHP and Lucas Restorations. My motto: Go Fast, Look Stock.  Oh, BTW car is LeMans Blue w/white stripe.    Larry

Bought my 68 RS/Z  03/03/70. I traded in a 65 Impala 327 4spd. SS plus $1370 at Reliable Chevrolet in Springfield, Mo.  I was cruising with a friend in his 68 SS 396/350/4spd. Camaro...we saw the car. I wasn't a fan  of the 69 yet and I thought it was 69, he said it was a 68, I put $50 down in 10 minutes.  I had just passed on a 68 375 Hp. Camaro...because it didn't have the rect.. heads.  All the mags implied it was outdated.  I had also just passed on a 69 SS chevelle 375 Hp. and a 67 427 Vette..I didn't know what it was, did I mention it was a radio/heater delete car...sitting on a used car lot!!!  I  was going to college then and use to watch another student drive a 427 Cobra to school every day.  My 68 Z is an all original survivor.

Great post. I bought my 69 RS/Z28 back in May of 76. I was 19 and making $2.50 an hour. I paid $2750 for it and that didn't leave me much money for gas. But it was well worth it. My Z has lasted me longer than two marriages and a hand full of girl friends. You just have to know where your priorities lie.

Srange how this takes you back.  Like most everyone else, I thought that I had paid too much.

I found my 69 4 speed car in a repo yard behind a credit union in 1988. Huggar orange w/ a block vinal top Bid $1200 and took it to my work parking lot becaue my wife said it looked to nasty to leave in front of the house.  It ran and drove but wasnt in the best of shape. Someone had most of the body work done so much of the chrome was missing.Interior reminded me of a chicken coop.    It looks a lot better now and I still only have about 4 grand in it I've done all the work except spray the paint on it.   Jm

  Yes, it takes you back! I got my first '68 in 1975 as a graduation present. I totalled it in 1980 and kept an eye out for another one. One day in 1981 I spied a '67 Rally Sport body in a yard out in the country. It was just a body--no engine or tranmission--but the rest was pretty much there. It was a 327/PG car with deluxe interior, console, speed warning, p/s and p/b and it had the Protect-O-Plate. I borrowed $200 from my employer and dragged the hulk home.
  I had a '67 Impala and I swapped the 283 and PG into the Caamro, got it running, put a windshield in it and painted it, but it just wasn't a '68. The '67 was missing some of the RS hardware and trim, and back then the stuff wasn't readily available as it is today.
  In May of 1983 I ran across a fellow with a '68 coupe with a 327/250 and Muncie that wanted to swap, and we did--even. The '68 was in primer and missing a lot of trim and interior pieces, but it was a '68. Looking back, most would say I should have kept the '67 RS because it would be worth a lot more today, so I probably paid too much in that respect.
  I wouldn't change a thing. With a warmed-over 400 small-block my faithful '68 ran mid-12s at the drag strip and I drove it every day for almost 10 years. I acquired a mortgage and it sat and rotted until 2004, when i got serious about restoring it.
  Today it has had a frame-off with the very best parts and is awaiting paint when this doggone recession finally ends. It'll be the '68 I dreamed of building way back in 1975, and unlike a wife or a g/f, it doesn't nag or demand my time. It waits patiently as it has for 26 years.
