Go with the 72!! Go with the 72!! You do NOT want a big block! :poke:
I would kill for the 454 IN the 72--just buy both and swap 'em out!! ahh perfection!

Thats my thoughts also.

Buy both, swap the big block and sell the newer one.

Thats fine & Dandy , but I'm only asking $6000 for my car and each car is $6000 ... I got my car parked in front of the house for right now with a BIG FOR SALE sign and so far I have had four people come by the house last Sat. and one guy who works on oil rigs was very interested , he asked IF he bought my car if it were possible to take the lettering " Saturday Nite Special " off the fender and tail-gate he didn't like it :dontknow: :dontknow: he said he would be back :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow: so we'll see ... I'll be putting the ad in Craig's List soon .... Nice ideas but not enuf $$$$$$ and Mrs. Geezer would NOT LIKE a bunch of Camino's parked out front like a Donnie's Done Deal Car Lot ... Thanks the Geezer :nanawrench: :nanawrench: :nanawrench:

Is the silver one the one that's been on Craigslist for several weeks? It does't look too bad. I'm partial to the '72 and older cars though.

The '72: What tranny is it? And 86k miles might need to be rebuilt. That's a 3rd gen, right?? I'm still not all that familiar with all the breaks in the gen process.:dontknow: I like the color scheme, but also like the silver (wunder why??).
