Good afternoon Ladies and Gentleman!!

This is a very sad day indeed, but I have decided to let Jade, my 1967 RS/SS Camaro go. I want anyone that is interested to know that I can verify every single thing that I’ve listed by showing you receipts, or you just simply looking at the components themselves. The car is extremely dependable, as it’s completed not one, but two Hot Rod Power Tour Long Hauls!! I have driven the car from Alabama to Cocoa Beach, Florida all the way to Detroit and back!! I’ve even driven her to Missouri a few times. I’ve built the car from the ground up and I can tell you ever single thing about it. Cruising at 70MPH is equivalent to 2300 RPM’s with the awesome 5-Speed that I put in her. If you stay out of the gas, she can average anywhere from 15-17 MPG. All in all, she is one amazing piece of machinery that will make someone a VERY Lucky and Proud Owner!!

Everything in and on the car works, as you’d expect. All dome lights work when you open the doors, to include the Hide-Away Headlights when you turn them on. The paint is Imperial Blue Metallic with a Cyber Gray Metallic Bumble Bee Stripe. I went as far to not only smooth out the firewall, but I painted the engine to match the nose stripe. It is painted with Base Coat/Clear Coat. Every single wire is hidden throughout the engine bay to present the neatest, professional engine bay. All materials used on the car came from Sherwin Williams, which was not cheap!! I’m sure there maybe a few things that I’ve forgotten, but you get the point. If you need anything else, don’t hesitate to let me know.

If you are seriously interested, feel free to email me at: [email protected] or call me at: 256-665-2086.

I can provide tons of pictures and documentation, as there are two threads in the 1st Gen section that are dedicated to Jade. The full frame/body off restoration was completed May of 2010.

Thank you for your time!!

Looks sweat :roxor: Hope you get what you want for it. :5go:
Thank You.... I'll never get what I want out of her, but I won't cry too much for letting her go at $45K. I won't take a penny less than that because you could never build that car for that amount of money. In my mind, with all the Labor I have in that car, she's definitely worth more than that. ;)

Gracias Guapo!! In all honesty, I'm kind of hoping that she doesn't sell too quick, as I'd still Love to enjoy her. But, I know that she'll make someone a very happy owner. And I'm in the same boat with you, "IF" I had the cash, I wouldn't let her go..... LOL

You know, I honestly have no earthly idea what I'm doing. I've put a lot of thought into it and part of me just feels like I need a fresh start. Not that I want one, but that I need one. With the divorce almost final, I find myself asking if it's time to let her go to a new home and start a new journey.... :rolleyes:

Well, I can't say "I know how you feel" but sometimes things just work out that way. I was just notified that the ZL1 is in Birmingham at the distribution center and should be in Athens anyday now. We'll have to arrange a meet-up spot so I can see Jade first hand and you can drive the Z

They say when you are going through a life-changing event, you should NEVER do something you even THINK you might regret. To take a step back, realize you are basically in mourning, and wait 6 months before you do anything you could regret later. Jade is an absolute beauty and I can't imagine getting rid of a car like that.

I dont' know you and I don't know your circumstances, but I do have a 68 Camaro that the hubby and I built ourselves and I know that if I were going through something as tough as a divorce, I might think I need to get rid of it because it might remind me of him. I KNOW I would regret it and would hope I would take my own advice and wait, as I LOVE that car beyond belief and would be devistated if I actually sold it.

And there you have my 2 cents, that you didn't even ask for.

Good luck to you.

:) T

I'm thinking you'll miss that car.
I would.
It's very sharp looking.
