Who could afford this during a time like this?
I would bet a overpaid Pro ball player or some CEO or obviously
a foreign country that we probably bailed out!
AGAIN WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
HOW MANY EMPLOYEES AND DO THEY HAS DECENT BENEFITS?

Well... for starters, I would assume that the people buying these cars have better grammar than you do.

I'm just glad to see that this company is still surviving in the current economy and that they are able to keep the craftsman that have these types of specialized skills employed.

Thumbs up!

Despite the poor grammar, there are some truth to the said opinion. Wow!,$150,000?... Yep, it has to be a collector of some sort. You could buy 4 new Camaros SS with $150,000. I do applaud these guys for renewing classics, I'm a car guy and there is nothing more exciting then to see one of these rumbling by. I can see demand over supply in this case, so I believe they will do well. I'm for any business doing well in the Stl, so I hope they succeed! Who knows, some day I might win the lottery and get bored of the new models...:-D

Yeah you could buy a new camaro or two but all the small parts for it come from overseas, and I think it's built in Canada. I bought this hunk of plastic 2010 camaro and it is cheaply constructed and over priced.$45,000 is too much for this giant cobalt ss.

being in the hot rod building buisness myself i can honestly say this is not a bad price.This guy is probably working 7 days a week trying to keep up. The hot rod buisness does not rise and fall with the economy hot rodders will build and buy cars no matter what.It is not just collectors buying these cars,sure to afford this car you have to have money bt these cars are built to drive not sit in a museum.There are hundreds of builders like this all across the country and there in no danger of losing buisness.

this is why i hate muscle car ehthusists. they spend all this money on a work of art of a car and they cover it in a garage for 10 months out of the year. this isnt what the muscle car culture is all about, picture these people in american graffiti of dased and confused. these cars are muscle not vaginas they dont need babied 365 days a year

Great! This the United States of America and what the market will bare dictates what's sold. The parts constitute 40% 50% of the cost so some highly skilled people are getting some good money. We can only hope they sell plenty of them and can expand their business. The more people working the better.

If they built 1950s 1960s Cadillacs I'd be interested. A 1957 Eldorado Biarritz convertible for me please!

I would like to see GM and Ford build these old cars on a production line. It might surprise them how many they sell.

I always thought they should do that! I think they should bring all the really good muscle cars back. They should have the old looks with the new suspension technology. Ultimate racing machines!

You must be about 12 years old? Must be with a comment like that. In fact it might be part of the reason you don't earn enough to buy one yourself.

I'm sure there has to be at least one V8 car in redbud that YOU can afford? Maybe you could find an old Chrysler Cordoba, paint a rebel flag on it, add some air shocks and glass packs and then go stump jumpin. Git r done!

Interesting post. You (allegedly) bought a 2010 Camaro for $45K. You say it's a hunk of plastic, cheaply made, cost too much and you're not sure where it was made. Why'd you buy it?
Does any of this make sense to you? It doesn't to me.

very nice cars. Its ashame though that your killing your own hobby. Im 27 and Have a classic car always have since I was 16. But i do notice many kids these days turning there heads away from them. Not because there not cool but because the price tags fixing them is getting ridiculas. I can buy a cool car for a couple grand but then the companies that make or suply parts figure that you should have to sell you soul or a body part to buy there part. You guys wont learn till you have turned every body off to cool cars and all they buy are toyota's.

QUOTEI disagree with you I am still a young kid and have alway's owned classic cars since 15. But Like the old timers say kids are getting less and less interested in old cars. Well being a kid and being with the kids I can let all you baby boomers in ona secret you guys just dont seem to get. We kids love old cars they are cool and awsome looking. The problem the old people are pricing them right out of existance! We kids cant aford a $3,000 rear end. We refuse to buy trinket parts for 200 - 500 dollars. And dont tell us that we should get better jobs! I work my tail off in as a wood worker. I'll never be able to pay the price of a house for a car! Keep going old guys! your slowly but surely killing the hobby we all love especaily my friends and my self
