1966 Chevrolet Corvette L79

It’s hard to beat a C2 Corvette, and when you add the 350-horsepower L79 engine, you have a fine balance of looks and power that few cars could offer at the time. Then go the Donny Brass route and make it scream. Click here to view this listing.

1992 Chevrolet Camaro RS convertible

You may be surprised to learn about the rarity of the RS convertible: 2,562. Since the RS was the pedestrian model without hi-po options, it’s often overshadowed by the Z28, but someone has taken care of that courtesy of a 355 small-block and six-speed manual. Click here to view this listing.

1963 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Spyder

The second-ever production turbo car with a four-speed manual sounds like it would be interesting. Maybe it doesn’t have big-block torque, but the poor-man’s Porsche reputation combined with a drop top makes this enticing. Click here to view this listing.

1973 Camaro Z/28-RS

Camaro purists may lament the loss of the LT1 after 1972, but new color choices and a four-speed on this particular example set it apart from the LT1 generation. Plus, any Camaro with the RS package deserves consideration. For 1973, few cars were as exciting. Click here to view this listing.

1966 Chevrolet Impala SS

I’m a sucker for Lemonwood Yellow. I’m also a sucker for classic mags and the wind blowing my thinning hair. Sporty bucket seats and console (standard on the Super Sport) are desirable, though I’m left wondering whether the 327/Powerglide combo needs some help without knowing the carburetion.
