    keep original 10 bolt?

    I am buying a 12 bolt this spring. Should I keep the 10 bolt for future in case these cars become collector cars? After owning a Chevelle I know that is important.

    I have everything I've changed on my car, and thats quite a bit, just in case. I also have owned 2 68 Chevelle SS's, and a 69 Suprebee, so I know what you mean.

    I have a pile of parts from our car that I need to haul to the lower garage -- including the stock 10 bolt. As long as you have a place to keep it there is no harm in hanging on to it imo.

    i would def hold onto anything that you swap out for aftermarket on any trans am that you own with pontiac's future looking very weak.

    pontiac has no future, and its demise will have no effect on the collectability of our cars

    Your right they dont but still, you dont think that the car no longer being produced ever will have an impact on whether or not firebirds/TAs are more of a collector item or not?

    i know they wont, vintage cords or studebakers are no more valuable than vintage dodges, fords, cadillacs, etc it all comes down to what the car looks like and whats 'in style' in 30/40 years, if we live that long

    JMO but I would stay away from 12 bolts with M6 cars The Torque Arms have been known to warp the case and cause problems, 9" is the way to go on an M6.
    As for keepin the 10bolt for use in a restoration down the road ? I don't see the upgraded rear being a detriment to the value. So sell or keep it it doesn't matter.
    Bottom line any vehicle is only worth what some one else will pay for it.
