well, this decision has been bothering me forever. i seem to have this thing whenever i need to make a big decision (i must have Decidophobia)

i bought a project car a while ago. it's a 1985 Chevy Camaro Z28, 305. it's not the t-top model (thank god, you'll see why)

the only engine problem i had to fix was the fuel pump (which was a pain in the butt, the manual makes it sound so easy, :dry: )

the rest is mostly interior and cosmetic

carpet, paint (decided to go with gloss balck for the body, and charcoal for the body kit), Z28 stripes for the side (black -> charcoal), rear window louvres, weatherstriping (thank god its not a t-top, or else i would pay an extra $250!), decals and emblems, and other small interior accessories.

total estimated cost - $1,000 to $1,500


but, on the other hand, i have always wanted a automag. maybe a tac-one, i don't know

if you choose automag, please tell me which one and why, and what else i should get with it (i am such a mag noob :wacko: )

thanks

Play with your car, and then post pictures when you're done. We've all seen mags before, you can make this car truly yours. In the end the decision is yours, but I say work on the Camaro (and I drive a mustang, so that's saying something)

Personally I'd buy the mag. I use a car to get from point a to point b. I'd get a lot more enjoyment from playing paintball then driving around a nice car. This is just my opinion though, it's up to you in the end.

You have another car right? This one is just a project car right?

Edit - At that price, you could get an E-Tac, I'd suggest that.

i guess your right about making it mine. my dad says that your car acts as a representation of yourself.

as of know, yes, i have another car that i can drive (not total garuntee, though. if i had to, i could use my dad's 72 monte carlo, he lives closeby, but he uses it too)

and you're lucky you got a mustang, i almost bought one (but the car was sold before i got to it). my neighbor rebuilt a 67 from scratch, fun as anything to drive

I always thought that you should represent who you are, and not let an object do it for you.

Get the mag.

well, i understand what you're saying, i meant to say that it shows your personality along with yourself, not acts as the only way of peering into one's personality.
it's actually quite interesting to see what kind of cars people drive, and how it reflects them.
gad, i remember high school. that was interesting. our star quarterback drove a mini cooper :wacko:
what's worse is the head janitor drove a 'vette :dry:

that's true, i thought about that. it will take longer for the car to be road worthy, but at least i'll have done something and a mag to boot!

as much as i love mags and paintball you should fix up your car. the car is just more important in the long run. you can get more girls with a Z28 then a Tac1.

Spend it on the car. Make sure it's running properly so you can get to work and such, and then buy a Mag later on. If it's your first Mag you might also consider not spending $1000 on it all at once, start with a cheaper one and decide what else to add later. If you have $1500 to spend, you could also put $1000 into the most important parts for your car, and buy a nice Mag for $500 (new or used, either way you can find some nice ones).
