Are the holiday sales finally over? Can I quit hearing about the chances of scoring a great deal every time I turn on the TV or the radio? Every holiday, I get shopping burnout. Sales here, there and everywhere, must act fast, must spend money. I hate that crap. I like saving money, don’t get me wrong. But I hate having to juggle timeframes and locations and all of that BS in order to save a few bucks. My wife loves that stuff. She sees it as a way of getting one over on the stores…I think. She is always quick to offset my bitching about sale after sale with how she got such a bargain, how getting all of this stuff together saved money in the long run. Normally, this is the part where I sit in the parking lot in the car as she finishes the shopping up.
Not today. You see, I found a deal. A hell of a deal, it seems. The main target is the beautifully built 1983 Chevrolet Camaro. Filled with an angry 421ci small-block based on a 1970 mill and filled with lots of goodies, a Powerglide, a 5.14-equipped Moser 9-inch with Strange axles and Mark Williams yokes, and tons of other parts that combine into a knockout Pro Street build, the F-body comes off looking classy, classic, and clean. We dig all of that. Packing in about 700 horsepower and bragging a 5.8 1/8th mile time, it’s got some steam to it. The car alone would be a score.
But, cue Billy Mays, because wait, there’s more! Not only do you get this Camaro, you will get a 2016 Continental Cargo 28′ trailer, and all of the gear inside of it too, including the helmet, fire suit, drum of C14 fuel, a tent, the full history of the Camaro, the full parts list, paint codes, reciepts…every last thing comes with the car.
Buying a used car of any kind can be a gamble. What do you have to lose here? Nothing.
