So since the Rideskinz side skirts are going through another redesign I am not getting them. Probably be another 6 months or so. I think I am gonna do the Havoc ones in carbon fiber as well as the ZL1 diffuser in carbon fiber! But that money is going to a tattoo that I have been wanting, so it will be a while. :seesaw:

Have the havoc side skirts been redesigned because last I heard was that they just wouldn't stay on the car.

Your Camaro has really changed since the last time i saw it. Really love the way it looks now. You have very good taste in mods.

How much do you guys think my car is worth? May sell it next year and buy a '69. I would swap the bumper for a stock one before selling though. I have around 30k miles.

I'm guessing you may get around 30 for it. What's with the sudden urge for a first gen? going to make it a project car? drag car? pro touring? Just a cruiser for nostalgia?

I've always wanted one, just never considered it until now. I want a '69 RS and turn it into a pro touring car. Put some Hotchkis suspension, Forgeline wheels and some other goodies on it It's a car that I will keep for a long time and its a good investment since the resale value will only increase. I'll lease a cheaper better gas mileage car for a DD.

My friend with the M3 said I'd be disappointed with the power compared to my car. Plus mods are twice as much.

M3s are fun cars to drive in the mountains. They have great handling, but are lacking power.
'69 would be an awesome car for a weekend cruiser. You def wouldn't be losing money on that! Are you looking at a roller, one that needs some TLC, or just one thats pretty much restored?

I'd prefer a decent stock one. I wanna paint it a color I want and do some performance upgrades... maybe drop in an LS3. I have seen ones in really good shape in the mid 30s. I'd rather get one that needs a little work for cheaper so I can do it how I want.

Taylor, My Camaro is sitting on the dealer lot for $29,988, not sure if they will sell it for anywhere close to that, but just for comparison sake if you are thinking of how to price yours.

dropping in an LS3 would be sooo freakin cool to ride around in! I'm planning something similar, but not with a camaro. What's your timeframe for purchasing one?

I was hoping to get at least 30k. I will sell it privately.
