Re: Newbie on a 68 Camaro
Welcome from a fellow Camaro newbie! So many factors determine if this is the right car for you. I was in a similar position a month ago searching for my car. I considered everything from fresh 427 Yenko clones to rusty original 6 cyl drivers. I wanted less of a project but for me it all came down to value. I settled on a very nice 68 RS from your state. The provenance and condition were stellar so the mechanical condition wasn't a big concern. I can also turn a wrench. It drove on the trailer and that was good enough for me. btw, The jerking in your target could be just low trans fluid.
1968 RS, CA Black Plate, Corovan Maroon, 327, manual trans, 18" Rallys, 245/40, 275/40, 42k mi.
