Hello from Vancouver. Canada

Hi to all. What a great site. Soon to be looking for my dream car 1969 Camaro COPO Clone. Came here to gather as much info as possible being I've never owned a first generation Camaro. Currently own 4 81z28's, 1 80 and 2 78z28's. Got back into cars a couple of years ago for the sake of my 3 boys aged 11, 15 and 16 and they love them. Like alot of other guys, I sold off a few of my cars when I started having kids. Will be lurking around and asking a few questions here and there. Doug

Welcome fellow Vancouverite Dred. How much do you plan on spending on a car?

Well I'm not too sure how much $ I'll have to spend yet, (or should I say how much $ I can spend without the wife finding out). I really want a just a nice driver to maybe take to the local shows and have fun with.

Have to sell a couple cars to make some room and get some $ together. Maybe in the next 3 or 4 months, probably looking to spend up to $35,000. Let me know what you come across.

Re: Hello from Vancouver. Canada

I just bought a car recently and I am always looking. Trying to find a 69 Z 28 locally. So far they have been listed between 45K and 70K but all over priced or not the real deal. Best to narrow it down to exactly what you want and how much you are willing to pay, it will make the searching process much easier. Unfortunatly our climate is very cruel to these cars and finding a good car is difficult. It really depends on if you plan on doing a resto or just buying something to have fun with and drive. The good news is the market is down right now and in the summer there seems to be more cars for sale locally. Also note that the good ones go quick and the over priced ones are still for sale. I have seen some still listed after 2 years. Keep in touch I would love to help you out if I can.

Re: Hello from Vancouver. Canada

Hey Doug. Check out the classifieds on this site. Right now there are some great deals on some nice looking cars. If you don't mind buying without seeing the car in person that could be a good way to go, as long as our dollar doesn't tank in the next 4 to 5 months. Good luck! The Black RS looks like a good deal for 33K.

Re: Hello from Vancouver. Canada

I looked at the 69z at Autoworld in Chilliwack for $69,000 a few weeks back.
Imo way overpriced. Definitely some nice ones on here reasonably priced. Thanks for the help.

Re: Hello from Vancouver. Canada

That Z is not real I looked at it 2 weeks ago. I asked the seller if he knew if it was a real Z and he said no. A full binder of the resto and not one picture of the car before??? Also no docs and no pictures of any of the numbers. Nice clone at best and over priced even if the work is good. 2 more 69's for sale for 45 K, one appears to be fake, I haven't looked at the other one yet. My new rule is if the seller won't send me pictures of the VIN and the drive train stamps, I am not going to waste time looking at it.

Agreed, about twice too much if it's a clone.
