    hmm... i thought a camaro is a camaro is a camaro. oh well... im not even sure if the car that i saw is a yutivo camaro or not. i think it doesnt really matter if its not a yutivo. bottomline is... its still a muscle car, and the outcome of the car will always depend on the restorer. i bet in 5 or 10 years, there wouldnt be anything to talk about as long as it is a camaro.

    to a certain degree you are right. as long as you have no qualms and you are happy with it then by all means go for it. it is all about the enjoyment of the hobby.

    but you also did ask about re sale value...didnt you?

    yah i asked about re-sale value of the camaro. so i assume that the resale value of a yutivo is lower. i just want to know if ever it is a really good investment. you know, restore it, use it for a couple of years, then if there's the opportunity to sell or move on to another project, of course you would need the money again to buy stuffs for the next project.

    a nice car if kept nice will sell well in a few years. i am not sure it will be the big investment per se unless you are talking about a GT350 perhaps. I met a guy who bought one mid 90s he claimed for 400k pesos running. now he is being offered a 100k USD and still refuses to sell. for him it is a toy that he enjoys. he doesnt look at it per se as an investment while it has investment value. he has a nice stable in pasig and occassionally races his units against foreign drivers. i for one will opine that the best thing is to enjoy it and when you see a nicer one, by all means unload to support the new toy. nothing worse than getting strapped with a lot of cars and having to maintain them. unless your last name is Leno.

    That being said, you should have the data presented by all sides and you can make an intelligent assessment.

    also, if you are in the hobby to buy and sell by all means do so. that is the beauty of free enterprise. as you will note there are some here who actively horsetrade. just make sure you are on the up-and-up with your prospective buyer and declare honestly what you know and not conceal things. I have seen that happen way too much in the hobby and it leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

    the GT350 is parked near eastwood. their group actually imports cars from the U.S.

    if i got a 67 fastback with a v8 is too would love to keep one.

    Never cared much for classic cars, except for the Beetle, Karmann Ghia and the Mini. But when I saw Spy Game and laid eyes on a 1967 Porsche 912, I was smitten instantly. :inlove:

    so what's the difference between the GT350 and the regular 67-68 Mustang Fastback?

    i saw one sa bowtie(well at least i think the paint says GT350), and the guys from there mentioned the owner acquired that for (if i remember) 350K, not running. they still had to rebuild the engine. parts of the body is a little bit rusty, though but not that much.

Who loves classic cars? Vintage, Muscle, Old School, etc.
