This American icon is going to a good home!
We love seeing classic cars that have been sitting for years getting rescued by people who are eager to work on them. That’s what we get in the included video of a 1969 Chevy Camaro loaded onto a wrecker and moved to a loving new home. You’ll notice the American muscle car is looking a little slim, which we think is from a restoration job that never was completed.

Before you’re too hard on the former owner, it’s not always possible to know why someone has let a classic car sit and accumulate dust. At least in this case the Camaro wasn’t housing a family of raccoons or mice. Judging by how it was sitting, we would have to guess someone had the plan to restore it, then life happened. That’s true with a lot of these abandoned project cars.
Perhaps someone died or had a medical issue that sucked up any time or money that would’ve gone to the car. While we love cool machines, someone’s life is most definitely a higher priority. In some cases vehicles have sat because someone lost their job or had some other financial stress. Restoring a car, even doing the work yourself, isn’t free. Putting food on the table and keeping a roof overhead, especially is you have a family, is a higher priority.
Whatever the reason for this disassembled ’69 Camaro sitting like it was, we love seeing a car like this go to someone who really wants to tear into it. After all, these machines were made to be driven so seeing them fulfilling that purpose puts a smile on our face. Also, it’s cool to see someone make a classic look fantastic again, even if this video is all about moving the Camaro and getting things organized.
