Re: Doesnt anyone like 50-60K in cash anymore?

Apparently not, I had an opportunity in carrying $18K to an original Camaro owner on the day of his choice and he replied he was not going to do business with me.
I asked why and he replied I was more interested in the Camaro than the negotiations.
I took it as a sign his Camaro was not for me.

Re: Doesnt anyone like 50-60K in cash anymore?

In your WTB thread you asked for one that is numbers matching. That is tough to come by. Mine was a 6 cylinder 3 on the tree when it started life. I did not want numbers matching because I like to put my foot in in it now and then. It is now a 496 with a small Procharger, 6 speed standard and Ford 9 with discs all around. Cars like mine can be obtained for less than numbers matching but it is not an investment it is a toy that holds it's value.

Cash, check, wire transfer. It's all the same money to me.

Does that mean you are not considering restored cars?

You could be asking for the world in regard to coming to this site and wanting to buy a "nice original" first gen. I have had a few and even though todays market is not what it used to be I think you will find most people on this site with those type of cars are not going to sell for a low price. Original cars get harder and harder to find as each day passes. If I had another completely untouched original and very nice first gen ( my last car like that was a 69 SS396 Chevelle) there I is now way I would sell it for that amount. The Chevelle I had went for substantially more than 60K.


I am sure people like that amount of cash but for most members here it's not going to be enough to buy one. Your going to find the majority here are enthusiast and would rather keep their first gens and a lot of times cash offers are not much of a concern. I hope you find one and it sounds like you know what you want and you defiantly have budget, those are excellent places to start.......keep looking and I hope you know what your looking at inspection wise because there are loads of scammers out there. This site can really help you research a Camaro if you do find anything.
Happy hunting....the hunt is part of the excitement !!

Maybe it has something to do with the mistrust in paper money. There are some real good printers out there than can reproduce good lookin' phony money, so you'd better be aware before accepting a bunch of paper from someone. Seller beware

So to clarify.

Do you want and original unrestored or a #s match restored car?

Lots of variables that determine present day cost.

Good advice. There isn't anything wrong with a cashiers check from a bank. It's basically the same as cash but with better insurance.

Not to get too off-topic, but it's not the same as cash. I've been through this on several occasions with my local bank when selling cars. It's still a check, so it still takes time for it to 'clear'. Cashier's checks / certified checks / bank checks can all be faked.

Re: Doesnt anyone like 50-60K in cash anymore?

Hi guys: Wow is this post ever going all over the place. Felix has $60K " cash" and is looking for a car that may or may not exist and counterfeiting enters the thread? ?? It is not my intent here to upset of offend anyone but everyone including Felix needs to count to ten and start over. Felix: sad but true, folks out there looking for specific cars can and are duped every day by cunning snake oil salesmen and not everyone is a guy named Richard who swills beer as a second job while hosting a reality TV show promoting a great ape and walking around with $100K in his pocket tossing cars. Likewise there are lots of good folks out there like yourself who draw some large amounts of cash from their accounts in the belief that sellers can't resist some flash in their face. Very very few members here buy and sell on a whim and a handshake. There is much homework to be done on classics before money changes hands and a fair amount of negotiating. I recently purchased a running driving 68 from out of state that I visited 3 times before striking a deal. How did the money get turned into keys in my hand when the time finally came? I went to a title company and opened an escrow account with the seller. It took about a week but that eliminated the funny money aspect of the sale and yielded a clear title to the car I was buying.

Felix: we all want you to have the car of your dreams but as the saying goes, caveat emptor. Let the buyer beware. You seem to be looking for one of the rarest classics out there and I can guarantee you there are plenty of plate switchers out there who will give you your dream, take your money and let your dream melt into a nightmare. Try to understand that your initial post at first blush projects that you seek a car that someone has already sunk $60 or $70K into essentially asking them to give you the car for free and disregarding the time and money put into it. Ask yourself, the question in reverse and what would your answer be.

Unfortunately there just are not that many of they car you are looking for out there that are -100,000 mile survivors in good condition.

I think the only way you are going to find your car is at Barret -Jackson or Mecum. They advertise in advance cars that are coming on the docket giving you the chance to do your homework before laying down your hard earned cash. As a bonus buying that way virtually eliminates a sham as both houses thoroughly vette their merchandise befor letting it roll across the line. As a bonus you can buy a car in this manner from the comfort of your own home via the Internet.

I sincerely hope I have offended none by my post and am speaking with the experience of working 7 years undercover for my County auto theft task force along with being a gearhead in love with American Iron and muscle since I was 10 which was 53 years ago.

Best wishes to all and Felix, my strongest wishes for you to find the car that makes you happy. WILL
