    my dream car is a 69 RS SS convertible. To bad they are so expensive.

    Also would love to have a AC Cobra but will settle for a kit car

    77 Trans am Black if you know what I mean.

    Dodge Viper (I'll take any year)

    76 FJ40 (oh I already have the cruiser so that's one checked off)

    I drove a 69 1/2 Camaro RS with the 350 4 barrel for quite a few years. That's the one with the little bumperets on each side of the rather largs grill and a fast back. What a great ride. I miss that car! I also rode a lot with a friend that had a 67 with a 327 and a Hurst three speed. That thing would go like a scalded dog.

    I generally hate Fords, but my love of the Mustang started me off with a 67 coupe as my first car,

    most recently DD a 65 Convertible, and then graduated to a 66GT Fastback factory 4spd, dealer-optioned high-rise with dual quads.

    Won 3rd place at the MCA Grand Nationals a couple of years ago.

    Starting a family dictated a new hobby, now I'm into Cruisers with 4 doors.

    I have some Camaro contacts, muscle anythings are pretty hard to find good deals on, way too easy to overpay unless you are going to hold long-term.

    Use Hemming's as a guide, it will help you a lot.
