I found 3 really nice 2nd Generation Split Bumper RS Camaros within a 5 wheel period. Mix that with a Mustang with a near perfect Two Tone Pony Interior and I just has to focus on Pony Cars this month. There's a couple of Cougars as well, so enjoy.
1971 Chevrolet Camaro - $16,500
Description: None provided at the time I saw it.

Comments: There was no description on their site when I saw this there. But the high resolution images look great. SO I have to put this at the top of my list. The carbon fiber dash insert would have to go... and so does the red inserts in the seats. Other than that I love the look of this car.
1966 Ford Mustang - $14,995
Description: Just in, 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe. 289 V8. Pony Interior.
Air Conditioning. Power Steering. Power Brakes. Nice, Clean, Great
running Classic Car.

Comments: This is my second choice for my ideal Mustang. Replace the Blue with Emberglo, inside and out, and this car would be perfect. But blue is my favorite color. I love the two tone white/color Pont Interiors.
1967 Ford Mustang - $16,995
Description: This 1967 Mustang hardtop with 96,590 Actual Miles has
undergone extensive mechanical and physical restoration through the
years (complete documentation and receipts included) and it is simply

Comments: I love the 67-68 with a good black vinyl roof... and in resale red... with those wheels... this car is a looker.

Comments: Price is the main reason this car is here. I can almost afford it. Well not really, but it is much closer than anything else I have liked it a long while. Remember, this is just a long wheel base Mustang... with sequential taillights.

Comments: What does an extra $4,400 buy you. That's a good question in this case. So I would go see the $8,500 car above first.

Description: Camaro RS. This is a real nice 1972 RS Split Bumper
Camaro. It is a factory 4-spd car with PS, PDB and a rear window

Comments: If the paint is as good as it looks from these low resolution pictures... its worth a few interior issues at this price. This could make a nice driver/project car.

Comments: I love this car.. it is very close to a car in my neighborhood when I was a kid. There was an "older guy" that lived down the block. Older was he was in his early 20's while we were too young to drive. He had a triple green Camaro RS. He had Crager S/S wheels and chrome side pipes on it. It looked very cool.
Around 1979 he bought a Mazda RX7 and sold the Camaro. He sold it to someone in the neighborhood... and that's when we all found out it had a 307. Nothing special... except that he had a great looks for the 70's and he kept it very nice looking.
