When I retire I was planning to build a 'brand new 69 Camaro Convertible. I know it is not popular but I was planning to use the new body shells and new chassis to go along with all new everything else. The shells 15 grand, the chassis can run 15 grand with added options and the LS engine -transmission combo can run 15 grand before labor cost. That's 45 grand before paint, interior, and the rest plus labor for all of it. I don't know if I want to invest in the dream but I am here to learn all I can and learn who offers the best workmanship for a project like this.
