Ok, I know this may not be the 5th Gen, but it still could be a "2009" Camaro. Did anyone happen to catch a show "Hot Rod Magazine" before football on Sunday on ESPN? It was about how Year One is now taking all of their replacement parts, and are now producing brand new 1969 Camaros. You can order the parts, and build it all yourself, or they said you could order them.

A brand new 1969 Camaro? How cool is that? Of course, they never said a price. Gotta be high. Still...

Ya I read about them. Ironically you can buy a new complete one probably cheaper than you can find a # matching fully restored car. I think it was like 50k for a turn key with a standard sbc and almost 75k for one that is LS powered.

Ya those are the ones I was referring to from CARS not Year One. None of that overpriced Year One stuff. I think the one I looked up with an LS engine 6 speed modern brakes and tubular suspension turn key was almost 75K You can actually buil one from their parts back to original spec for less than 50k which is probably what it would cost to build and original one given the insane prices that most 69's fetch.

For $75k or $100k I'd rather have an original, well optioned '69 or a '68' or a '67 that is still in very good condition. It's going to keep going up in value.
:thumbsup: I second that. You can find a pretty well restored or restore it yourself for 50 - 75k.
Although it would be nice to have a brand new 69 camaro. My favorites have always been the 67 - 68.

I've never understood that 'arguement' for lack of a better term.

Some people want a nicely restored vintage car and others want modern chassis/powertrain technology on a vintage body. Personally, I can appreciate both and would have both if my checkbook allowed it :lol:
