This is tougher than I thought it would be.. Finding a decent 67-69 Camaro under 25k has proven to be like finding a unicorn.
Just posting this here to prove Gimps point that no one here give two shits about me finding the car i'm looking for

The older Camaros and Mopars are bringing ridiculous prices now.

Found a '68 454 4spd, PS, PB, 4 wheel disc, has a lot of the goodies I would want on the car.. supposedly all original sheet metal.. it's 6+ hours away and 4k above my current purchase budget.. BUT..

not exactly the color I want either but i'm finding that color is a secondary concern. Finding one that hasn't been all butchered up or had shitty quarter jobs, has good clean body lines, hood, doors, fenders, trunk that all line up.. that has become the top priority.

Here's my dream classic. 63.5 Ford Galaxie fast back r code. Stock 425 hp , 2 4 BBL holleys. Mint now selling for anywhere from 85 to 155k. Pops flew to Detroit in 63 and drove 1 home. Sold it to get a family friendly vehicle

Sweet car for sure.... But the r code is where it's at for me. The r code cars have 427s. That one is a 390
