Camino goes retro?

22 posts in this topic

Other than the Silverado, it looks like only old and cheap (but interesting) cars will be part of the fleet for a while.

I've decided to get serious about selling off the Hawk, GTO and Maserati. I need to push a bunch of things forward and freeing up money will be required. It is really going to kill me to let the GTO go as I completely love the car, but it will put a little cash in my pocket and reduce my monthly costs a bit as well as insurance.

I would like to put my plan of setting up to paint my own project cars into motion sooner rather than later which entails lots of little and not so little purchases. I'm less patient than I used to be and really want to get on with this.

So look for me to be dragging some older iron into the barn, 68 style, for the next couple of years. I plan to do as many as I can in that time period.

It all dovetails nicely with my goal of living a cash-only existance for at least a while.

There will be a zeta purchase somewhere along the line though. :AH-HA_wink:

I've been holding out long enough and it is making me miserable, so doing something about it can only improve my outlook.

There could be a few newer projects as well along the way if the right opportunities present themselves.

I intend to document all of them for everyone to see, and unless I fall hopelessly in love with one, I'll sell each project soon after completion.

After all, the best part of a project is doing it- not looking at it after it's done.

I take this to mean you plan on stealing my LeSabre.

Try it.

If I didn't have a GTO already, yours would be a great one to buy. I still wouldn't mind a trade :P

Good luck with your projects.

And here I was thinking this thread involved MC Hammer pants. :nono:

:lol: Not far enough back

BTW: I found several spellings in use, but the one reference to the GM A body was Collonnade.

Good luck Camino...I need a sip of the kool aid you're drinking to get the fire lit under my ass to get my Delta restoration kick started again.

The flavor is "Frustration Fruit Punch" <_<

But at least it got me moving.

Same here, dude. I sold my beautiful '96 Riviera and have completely rejected new vehicles until GM builds things that will excite me again. I'm proud that the newest vehicle I now own and drive daily is thirty years old. The pressure's on to restore my '67 Eldorado too; after doing not much but staring at it and the occasional ride around town since picking it up last October, I picked up a parts car through craigslist for $200 and have been ripping it up ever since to stockpile anything I might need for my restoration. I'm excited to finally be underway. There is zero pride in working on a new car because it sucked before you started and it'll suck when you're done. Old cars rule.

*nods*

Indeedy they do :).

Good luck, Camino.

I dug a bit "into the past" for my daily driver when my 2000 thingy was totaled in 2003 ... and, despite others' comments, I have yet to regret a day of it.

Lots of interest in the Maserati, but no one has followed-up on seeing the car yet.
