In 1974 when times were a bit different, a friend of mine told me about a service man who brought a white 1969 crossram Z/28 to the island. I've never believed the story until another Camaro enthusiast in 1985 told me that he saw a crossram Camaro in the local junk yard in the late 70's. At this time he identified the color of the car to be white w/black stripes and that it had been in an accident that only the front end could be salvaged. In 1993, another friend of mine told me he responded to a local ad that was in a classified listed as only Camaro parts. Amongst many parts, the crossram hood was also for sale for $300.00. Before I purchased the hood, I asked the seller when and where he got the hood from. He told me that he got it from the junk yard. The same junk yard where my friend had seen it in the late 70's. In my search and quest for this elusive metal crossram hood which I was destined to own, I am not so reluctant anymore to not believe what my friends tell me.
