They are cool....but way to expensive for my blood............but a nice
alternative would be the LS40 from Lonestar Classics..........and get 38-40
I would like to have one of the orginal GT's. GT-40 wasn't the
"official" Ford name for the orginals, but it's what they are known as.
The body lines alone get my blood flowing like a TF/D leaving the line.
To me the new ones are less exciting to look at. Yet I would love to
drive one, just Once.
When it comes to Super Cars, my personial desire is a C.O.P.O. L-72 69
Camaro (Perferibly a Daytona Yellow sYc-Yenko).
Really I do have a soft spot in my heart for most classic tin.
Those are cool also and you can have one built at
http://www.yesterdaysfavoritecamaro.com/ go and order a free dvd and you can
have ANY '69 camaro built for you......you want a YENKO replica, they can do
it.....you want a Z28........they can do it......you want a Z28 with Air and
Automatic, even though they didn't come with either as an option in '69,
they can do it!!! He was only doing '69's but I see the new web page shows
'67,68 & 69 now. I just don't have $150,000.00 laying around for a new
GT40!!! For that price you could get a whole passel of these '69 Camaro's
for each day of the week!!!!! LOL......Mark
not the camaro.......the new ford GT40 is $150,000...........to rich for my
blood.............they are currently going from 15 to 20k over
invoice..........would rather have an LS40 or Camaro..........funny is
several Ford dealers have contacted Lonestar Classics to have one of their
replicas in the showroom so folks can see what a real GT40 looks like!!!
Read on their site...............MRT
Im going to contact Year One in the summer (after I finsh a few of my
personial projects), and see about geting one of their new 69 Camaro
shells. Then check with the state of ohio about registration & VIN for
it (ie:what they would consider it, what I would have to do for it to be
100% legal). Since the shells only come in convertible, I know where
there are a few extra crusty First Gen Shells I could get a hard top
For me the better part of the enjoyment of such a car would be building
it. Maybe holding on to it for a year or two, and selling it to someone
looking for such a beast.
When it comes to C.O.P.O. Camaro's, for me the enjoyment would come
from having a Real car, with a documented history. Driving it to local
shows, and letting other view it. Doing Nastalgia Drags, and maybe a
cross country trip or two. Sure you can clone such a car, it just won't
have the same feel & imperfections of the real thing. In a way Im still
chasing VIN# 124379N578973. Which had 2 extra cost options: A Gauge
Package that cost $60.00, and a Radio That cost $61.10, bring the total
to $4,593.68 purchased 2/21/1969 from Hugh White Chevrolet.
There's a used car dealer down the street from where I used to work in
Oakland Cal who has both a right hand drive 289 Corba (original) and
has owned two GT-40's...still has one (said he sold the first one to
Merial Hemingway many years ago)
He was featured in a two part "World of Collector Cars" video
