^^^what COPO said^^^ It's doable. My buddy found his 1970 Chevelle SS 396 that he bought new when he returned home to Iowa from Vietnam. It was located in North Georgia. Made contact with owner and we took a road trip. You should have seen the look in his eyes when he got back behind the wheel. He owned it for 5 years. Dated, got married and used it for daily transportation until he sold it to a kid for $1500. It's still in great shape with a few changes over the years. 454 in place of 396 - Fathom Blue with black stripes instead of Astro Blue with stripe delete.
