I almost bought one of those once, in the SS396 version. But I didn't like the way the owner had modded it with drag racing in mind. I'm more about freeway cruising and going around corners. Undoing all that and redoing it my way would have been too expensive.
My father restores old Camaros. He had one of those except red with black bumblebee stripes (and no SS) and a '69 SS (yellow with black racing stripes). He sold both of them to buy his latest project car, a '67 RS/SS convertible.
