Default What would you do??

I just got an interesting proposition. There is only one problem, it conflicts with my NEBF attendence.

Should I attend NEBF and buy wheels for my Bonnie (20" chrome) from a friend with a GP.

Should I say, "Well there is always another NEBF;" and buy a 94 Z28 from my friend with cash money??

I would love to have a standard tranny again, much less a six speed, but I have been looking forward to NEBF for months. The Z is a good deal, but so are the rims. I can't decide, I would love chrome for the Bonnie, but I have a thing for Z28s.

I take it you haven't told anyone you will be doing biz with them for sure? But I would buy the Camaro & still go to the meet even if you aren't buying the rims...

I really want the Z, but if I buy it I will be dirt poor for about the next 4 weeks.

We will take care of you at NEBF. Of course we may want to thake the Camaro out for a spin.

I'd say get the Z28 and skip one NEBF meet. There'll be more and you can really have something different at the next one. It'll sound good, look good and move good too.

Do what the best opportunity provides. Just know... if you don't come..you will miss out as well.

I bought the Z, and it is fast as hell. I still might come to NEBF, but I couldn't pass up a Z28 that was for this price. I now have 5 car titles in my desk drawer
