Specifically a 67-69 Camaro or Firebird? It's been in the back of my mind lately to do this. During high school, my dad bought a '65 Corvette race car that was just a chassis, a modded body and boxes of parts. It was about $6800, then he spent countless weekends scouring swapmeets for the rest of the parts...all told, it was probably $15,000. He restored it over the course of 2 years to a stock looking daily driver. He put in a new 350 Chevy small block, new transmission, and ended up putting over 250K miles on it before it needed another body-off resto...he opted to sell it for $35,000 and got something "worry-free".
I've always loved the old Camaro's, and like muscle cars in general. I drive a 2 seater right now, but with a wife and two kids, I'd like the option to take 'Dad's Car' when we go places so we're not always in her Pathfinder.
I've asked my Dad, but he's of the mind that I shouldn't do it, 'cause he did it, and wouldn't do it again...so I shouldn't even bother.
Any thoughts or words of wisdom?
