    I have the Hot Rod itch agine. What would you buy if the wife/hubby said you could but cant spend more than 15k
    on one??

    I do not want a Nova at all never liked the body styles.
    Classics that I have had 68,69,79 Camaro's all great cars but been there done that.

    1972 442 olds that was fun just dont want another olds I think.

    So I was thinking a 68-70 Chevelle with a Big Block But I'm
    sure there are a lot of hotrods that I cant remember of just dont want to buy a Chevelle and say damm I forgot about that car.

    So what would you get but remember no more than 15K

    And NO you cant put the money into your offroad K5,Tuck,truggy tube thing has to be a classic/hotrod

    I'd like to go for a "69" El Camino myself and maybe convert it to 4wd but I guess it would still be considered a truck?
    I think it would be a good one to drop a 572 in.

    Might not be a classic hot rod, but I recently bought a 78 El Camino with the intention of build it into a street toy.

    As always the Tri-fives are always the best for classic cars. Also if you are looking for older vehicles the 30's-40's chevy's and ford's are the shite. And even thought I might get picked on I love the 60's mustangs...

    When it comes to muscle cars, I'm primarily a mopar guy.

    70 or 71 Cuda (I've got a 71)
    69 Charger
    69 Barracuda
    69 Superbee

    One chevy muscle car I would like is a '57 Nomad, but I think those get into the $20,000 range.
    Pontiac-66 GTO or 69 Judge or 79 TransAm

    If only I has several million dollars. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Well - this will blow your budget but any of the early 60's Corvettes - this IS a Chevy site, right? /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif
