    Ronnie,
    I think you should have as many hotrods as you can drive and afford. There are 7 days in a week, so to me that means 7 cars. This way I can drive a different one each day.

    Which ever one you decide to keep will be the wrong one later down the road. But I do know someone that would be interested in which ever one you decide to sell.

    I know none of this helps, but you did ask what I think!

    VERY tough question.

    The 'Cuda would/could/might be worth more in the long run as they are getting rare.

    The Firebird was the first year that they castrated the 455 (dropped the compression, different low performance cam, etc.) but it should still be worth something as a "collector" car.

    Man, I don't know. You've put yourself between a rock and a hard place. If it were me, I'd sell the one that would bring the most cash which would fund any new project.

    I hate the 74-75 Firebird nose but I have no love for the early year A body barracuda either. Which do you like better, I dont' think there is a clear winner there.

    I'll agree with Wes, keep 'em all if you can afford it. But then there's the dilemma of which one do you work on :confused:

    Being a loyal GM owner I'd sell the Barracuda. The T/A will be worth more IF you ever sell it & is a much better overall vehicle technology wise. Plus it's further along to being on the road.

    But, those 'Cudas are light & not very common (like Camaros & Firebirds are ). It would be a blast with the right set-up :D

    What generation of Camaro are you looking for?

    Ronnie, I gotta chime in here too. Sell all of it and buy the one Wess posted on Craigs List. Then ya have one to drive on Pwr Tour! I know u love to work on them, buy goodies for them, but it seems projects go undone with so much going on. This way u could focus on ONE car and really make a very nice one out of it as its probably a good one to start with. Maybe the price is too high??? I dont know but u are good at bargaining and trading, no telling what kind of deal u could work with the seller:) Wish ya well in whatever ya decide! Keep us posted! :)

    I would like a 70-73 camaro or a 67 camaro. I have to agree that one camaro is way out of my price range.I have so much stuff for the barracuda I hate to sell it! Maybe I should sell the ta and finish the barracuda while I look for a camaro.True the barracuda is so!!!!! lite weight!!!! about 2900 pounds I believe.Keep the coments coming and do not be shy.Thanks!

    Ok that sounds like a plan, keep the Cuda, sell everything else, finish the Cuda. THEN find a 70-73 Camaro, or whatever. One step at a time :) Hang in there, we're with ya!
