Neither my Baldwin Motion Competition Hemi Road Runner (1968), nor my Yenko Camaro, where street legal, though I did occasionally drive the Camaro on the street. The Baldwin Motion Car had a locked rear and could not really make turns around corners. Ran "A" Modified Production. I paid $3,980.00 brand new for the Yenko, which ran "A" S/S, less cost then the 68 Baldwin and neither had a warrantee. There is an original Yenko 69 Camaro for sale on The Dupont Registry, with matching numbers, thought to be only 1 of 16 Yenko's around in original configuration for $635,000.00. I sold it when I got married ($2,450.00
), based on that history, I should have kept it and gotten rid of the girl friend at the time.
One I always wanted was a 68 396/375 Nova. Or the Baldwin Version - 427/425, but that never happened.
My 67 Corvette Roadster with the 427/435 HP can't come close to the performance built muscle cars of that age.
My last one, age wise was an LT-1 Z-28 in 1970, then I became an old and boring married guy!
The New SRT Dodges and the 7 Liter Cameros are probably faster street racers with all the bells and whistles, but just not the same. In the old days as Glenn will attest to, a set of feeler gauges, a timing light, small tool case and an oil filter wrench was about all you needed.
