Re: Looking to buy a 1st generation Camaro to work on with my Dad
Great advice. If you are however dead set on a camaro, do not let location completely dictate your purchasing situation. It is easy to buy a plane ticket or two from southwest (pretty cheap flights) and go inspect one in person wherever it may be. I would suggest looking throughout the southern part of the country, new mexico, nevada, arizona, texas, etc... DRY Places. A vehicle can be shipped on a truck for generally around $1000. I have had several shipped from california to oklahoma for around $900, and thats a pretty long haul. Also, don't settle for something just because its near your budget. As previously stated, if its cheap, its probably a heap. Find something with solid rocker panels, and frame rails underneath the trunk. IMHO that is the most important part of finding a builder. An extra thousand or two can save you thousands in the long run.
