How about a '67 bird with a 400? Not a Camaro but as close as it gets. Its the one in my profile picture and was last dyno tested at about 475hp.

I have a 68 rs 327 green with silver racing stripes. It has seen better days but hopefully someday soon I'll give it a complete make over. I just don't know what I should do first... get the new one comming out or restore the old one? Anybody with some advice?

Unless you plan on caring for it like it was made of glass, I would reccommend getting the 5th gen, and keeping the 68 for later...

It depends on how deep your checkbook goes honestly

That 68 will be worth more than most 5th gens down the road

No kidding. You will probably spend well over 50k to restore a 1st gen not to mention the hundreds if not thousands of hours you will have to put into the resto...

I've got a maroon 69 w/ a healthy 454, 9 inch rear, coated Hooker Competition headers, and a 3 inch Flowmaster exhaust. I also have a blue 69 w/ white stripes, 850 horse 509 (Brodix heads, titanium valves, 1250 dominator, 14:1 compression, Lunati stroker kit, coated Super Competition headers, 4" exhaust), 9 inch rear, 4:56 gears, TT-IIs, drag radials, and a legal license plate. Fun car.

And I don't talk to my wife about money and old cars.

I love it. It's a Raven Black '65 GT fastback with the original A-Code 289 in it. It gets compliments wherever it goes from all sorts of people and is a blast to drive. It needs a few things here and there, and it definitely needs some bigger wheels and tires for daily driving(It has the stock 14x5s with the pizza-cutter red line tires on it. Those will be kept for shows.), but that's what makes it so fun to have. It really brought me and the wife together on the car hobby thing. She was actually looking at an Evo or STi, along with a few other new cars when I found it on the internet and showed it to her. Next thing I know I'm on three-way calling from Kuwait with the dealer and my wife. Two days later she drove it home from Maryland with no problems. It is definitely staying in the family for good. Anyways, sorry to hijack a Camaro thread with tales of a Mustang. Please continue.

We have a 1969 SS Camaro... all original with the 396 big block... We are working on restoring it right now, which has been a kind of slow process. But I love it. Sometimes I start it just to listen to her purr...
