In less than a month I'll be done with highschool (Thank God), and I was thinking about buying something nice to play with during the summer.
First, I need to finish my Camaro. There are only 3 more paychecks until graduation and I think I could finish the car with 1. It needs aligned, a little body work, and I need to put the GTA wheels on. That leaves me a good $1000 in some restoration of the interior or some extra performance.
Now comes the difficult part. For graduation, I'm coming into some money and I want to buy something nice. I have some money saved for college so I'm just gonna reward myself with something. The problem, and reason for this rambling is I don't know what I should buy.
I thought up a few ideas. I don't how good they are but I rather get some good ideas before I get the money and waste it.
1. 83-88 Monte Carlo SS. I don't know why really, but this is my dream car. Sort of innocent in the back, but evil looking, up front. I really want one in white to match my camaro, but black is badass too. The thing is, I want one all original like my friend's Luxury sport. I priced them and they are around $5-10k in my area, so I might just pinch every penny or even take out a small loan and pay it off before college. Stock power doesn't bother me, because I would make this my new cruising car and then mod the hell out of my camaro. I'm thinking white body with the red SS decals, and some Cragar S/S rims in black (New for 2009)!
2. 82-92 Pontiac Firebird/TA. Obviously Pontiac is my brand of choice (mostly for their old stuff), and I love the looks of third-gen birds. I'm thinking white with red lettering and some black GTA wheels (Camaro would get Cragar S/S rims in chrome then). I would get one in a manual and hopefully a carb, take the tranny to get built up, drop in a 350 crate and call it a day. Camaro would return to stock..sorta, and be a cruiser to college...not work.
3. 79-81 Pontiac Firebird/TA. I love the looks of these birds (Probably My Favorite birds). They are really cheap in my area...and nice too. One just went for $2500...MINT CONDITION! A True little old lady owned car now selling to pay for meds!!! I almost cried when I came back with my college savings and it was gone.
I would make this my cruiser and mod the crap out of my camaro.
4. LS1 'Bird. Sorry Camaro guys, the Fourth-Gen bird might be the sickest looking f-body ever produced. They are hovering around $10-12k right now and that is a little too much, therefore I would probably have to sell my camaro and still take out a loan. I'm not going to go into detail because I doubt I'll go with this choice.
I'm tired and I feel like playing some xbox...I'll add the reat tomorrow.
