The main cabin seems to have stood up pretty well, given shes had a fairly heavy hit in the snout, Reckon the steerer would have a few neck and chest issues though, using those seat belts  .

She's stuffed. Look at the crash pad and dash fascia.
And the big whoop in the LH 1/4 between the drivers door wheel arch. The front subframe would have done horrible things to the floor and firewall.

As for the seat belts, it's got the hwy belts fitted. You can see the passenger one hanging in one of the pics, but judging by the last pic of the front screen, they weren't wearing them.......

(And while I'm being picky, it's a 68 not 69  ;D )

What would you know about 60's Camaros?  ;D

Its either a Drag Car or land fill now.

Don't look at these if you have a weak stomach. A couple of these took a pretty big hit going by the damage.

I've just got back from Bright Victoria where the Bright Rod Run is on. I'm not a car person but the town was full. There was some amazing cars there. What amazed me more was the amount of $$$ that would have been in the town for this weekend. Someone said it would have to be in the mid double figure millions of dollars.

The wind deflectors on the wipers were the expensive bit.
The mesh headlight protectors didn't help either.

The Packard for $16,000 had to be a good buy too.
The 61 Fleetwood is a good indicator for our Caddy too.
The 61's were never as sought after as the 64's and being a 75 series, its gunna be 6.2 metres long, so a friggin big car to be punting around in the traffic.
Ours at 5.7 metres is big enough for me.

I wonder how high the prices will get to?
It will all settle out?
I think there is more people than ever now, investing in old cars with their super monies, so the run has a while to go yet.

Very nice. I do like a white K/T/G, especially with a white engine bay. Really makes that engine pop.

Is he going to fit that GTS bonnet? Will certainly set it off.

He's done well.
