man, you're not making it easier on yourself.. a muscle car with a history and some stories, especially if they're documented, are worth even more money
and yep, the Cuda is worth a small fortune. Most of them I saw were going from the low $200K's to over $500K. They had a lot of them at the Indy auction and I wanted every freaking one of them. I kept saying "I want that for Christmas"
I'll settle for a 442 convertible in either green or purple with black stripes. Those are the only things that were affordable. They had a Hemi-orange and a Plum Crazy (purple) Cuda at the auction and those were my favorites. I would've took both for Christmas, except they cost over $750K combined..

I like the new Camaro!! Don't know why Detroit couldn't build one though! Only Camaros I ever liked were 67' thru 70' or 71' !! New Challenger or Barracuda look decent ! I think I really like the new Camaro though. Wonder what they're going to cost? What am I saying I'll have to stick with my gas guzzling Surburban!!

My first car, a 65 El Camino 327 V8, was nice. I put dual glasspaks turned down at the rear axle.

Sounds great, my wife had an El Camino before we got hitched. Might have been a 67' or 68' don't recall when they started. She had a horse to feed so needed a truck! Got rear ended by a jerk in a stolen car one night. Totaled the car! Thief ran off!! But , I still see several nice El Camino's running around over here! The 327 was an extraordinary engine. P.S Hers may have been a 64' think that was their first year!!

my old landlord drives a really nice el camino - he lives off culebra and reed rd - his is blue and silver - excellent condition - people would come thru the culdesac i lived on when they saw him parked in front of my house just to ask him about the car. i never knew there was so much interest in an el camino!

I've always loved the El Camino and wouldn't mind owning one of these new G8 ST's: 2010 Pontiac G8 ST Expected to Start in the Low $30,000 Range (The Torque Report)

I think they'll be a hit

I wonder...did you marry your wife for the El Camino? Inquiring minds want to know!

I miss that car with its 2-speed powerglide transmission. At about 40MPH, when you punched it, it would downshift to 1st and throw you back into your seat! And this was with a standard 327 4-barrel carb automatic. I took it once to the Irwindale Raceway where you pay $2 to race against each other and the clock in the quarter mile. The best I got was 84 MPH in 16.25 seconds. I also miss paying $6.25 to fill up the tank with premium gas. I would carry my Yamaha 360 Enduro in the back to the desert to go dirt riding.
Those were the days!

what is the Fred channel? Does Sirius have anything similar? I usually only listen to a few stations and lately I've just been listening to my new exhaust sound
Sirius has First Wave. Sounds like it might be somewhat similar? Can't remember the channel, but I think it's somewhere around channel 20 or 21? They also have the regular 80s channel (I think it's channel 8), but that's a mix of lots of different stuff from the 80s.

No , ha! I had my Camaro at the time and only saw other cars as opposition! I had the 4 speed Muncie console shift which I loved. They were great shifters and transmissions! When I kicked in the back barrels on tha Quadrajet Carb wow!!!! It was the same as revving the engine and popping the clutch. I could melt the wheels off!! I never had any traction and usually raced from a slow rolling start. I knew how to drive that puppy. I could spend a lot of thread space talking about all the cars I blew the doors off of!! Man what a thrill!!

NICE!!!

BTW: The only car I beat at Irwindale that night was my younger brothers' 1969 Mercury Cougar with a 3-speed 289 engine. He beat me off the line as he had a stick, but about 1/2 way I passed him when my 327 warmed up.
Funny, after that car, my only two other GM cars were Old Cutlass (2 Dr and SW). I've been pretty much a Ford man since then...but I do like the new Camaro coming out a little better than the new Mustang Cobra. Call me bi-polar, but I would really like to have one of each!
