Z/28 Clones are what they are. So long as the owner admits that it's a clone, no harm no foul. However, for those of us who actually own the real thing, it's frustrating to hear the same statement all of the time; "That's not a real Z/28, is it?"
Yes, it is a 1969, and yes, I will call it a clone. But for your info, i am only 15 and this is a project between me and my dad, so we can't exactly buy a real matching #'s Z-28
for my first car. Besides, I doubt that I will get any less respect at my high school with a clone
Hey guys, cut the kid some slack!!! I personally am glad to know that there are still some youngsters interested in muscle cars. Hopefully they will never die!!! He could be asking questions about putting 13 x 18 gangster wheels on an '88 Escort!!!
Amen to that!! My dad was nice enough to hand me down the family 73 Rustang that never ran. I bought a 75 Malibu with a 350, bucket swivel seats and a console. 295/50r15s in the back and 195/75s in the front. I had a spoiler on the back and a front airdam Keystone classics with bfgs all round. It was fast and the chicks loved it. That car got me lots of....well never mind
My first car was a 67 Mustank , although I later turned to the dark side of chevy (more reliable and less oil drips) it was a great project, and also a good time with my father, I believe it was one of the best times in my young life, restoring a muscle car with my dad, I will always remember that time for the rest of my life...
Yea,I know what you mean sixtysevenrs/ss,my car got me a lot of pinkslips too !
Steve,do what you want with your car,as long as your not going to try to pass it off as something it's not,who cares,it's your $$.More power to your dad also.I wish I had a dad who would have spent this kind of time with me!(boo hoo...right?)I just hope my son has an interest in muscle cars like I do.Based on his love of speed and cars,I'll say he has a good headstart.
Drake-drag your kid out there when hes young and soon he'll catch on muscle cars
My dad always got help from my brother and I cuz it was on his camaros-and the reward was a ride
Now he sold them all for the family, finally got back in the business when my brother and I turned 15 since then (were 16 1/2 now) we owned 3 chevelles, 2 trucks, and 1 camaro.
We got him back into it, like he sold them for us-we remembered that so we promised ourselves to get a muscle car no matter what
