    Looking for a new toy...

    I am looking for a new car guys, I sold the Firebird last weekend and now I want to get back into a manual trans car. I have had 3 days being snowbound to search the net and nothing is jumping out at me. Chris (bowtie) looked at a sweet car for me in Atlanta but we cant come to an agreement on a price. I trust everybody on here enough that if someone recommended a car I wouldnt question or be as leary. So, the wife and I are looking for a 70-73 Camaro or a 70-77 TransAm/Firebird, manual trans, does not need to be a numbers matching car. No rollcages or ex-drag cars. It needs to have nice paint and a clean undercarriage, I dont mind doing a little trim work or final touches on anything, just dont want to deal with body or paintwork. I am open minded to other GM 4-speed cars in the 1965-1972 era. I am looking to spend $15-20K delivered to my door. If anybody hooks me up with a good deal, I will gladly pay a birddog fee. So if anybody has a car or knows of one, let me know.

    Thanks guys!
    Chris

    I will notify my wife about this and have her looking for around in TN for something. For some reason why she can find any car for cheap.
