Whats the deal with dealers?
I have been lurking about reading, researching, and looking.
I'm looking for a "nice" (meaning not a project) 67-68 camaro perferably a Convertible,
would prefer a BB but would consider an SS350, at very least a RS trimmed vehicle,
my main requirement is factory air,,tilt wheel is a real plus as well. I'm looking at about the 50K-60K range.
My question is this:
what are these cars all about i see on Ebay and elsewhere that are in showrooms such as
"Gateway Classic cars", "USA Hot Cars" and many others,, it seems you can "order up"
just about any classic car your heart desires nowadays and the price is generally in the ballpark of mid 30's or 40's. A price where a guy of average means could take out a loan if needed and cruise away in the classic of your youth. I just came off of 5 yrs of being involved in WWII Jeep restorations and am now going down the muscle car road, (yeah one of those guys who doesnt really know what he wants)
I know what goes into a restoration, the search for parts, the research on what was correct,, how can these "dealerships" off what seems a nice car at this price? do these use lots of repro parts?
bondo?? I am leary of them and probably rightly so,,I just dont know why? can somone explain how these outfits operate?
Thanks in advance!
