Re: x77 is it real??
All '69 Z/28 folks are NOT into correct numbers restored "belly button" cars....besides, I have a 30 year hoard of '69 Z/28 parts that I can access if I suffer a mental breakdown and decide to restore this car...
I love Day 2, "Street Machine", road race and old school drag race Z/28s, SS cars built and raced in the '70s and '80s...because that is how I remember them as a kid.
Restored cars are all the same...ZERO creativity, skill, or ingenuity involved...unlike the "race" versions from back in the day that were built with good ol' blood, sweat, tears and "Yankee ingenuity".
Don't get me wrong...I still appreciate "original" cars...They are cool as time capsules...
This Z/28 will always be valuable as it is a Canadian car with docs...but, to me...its value lies in its racing heritage and back story...of which I am unaware. This Z/28 was somebody's pride and joy...and it shows.
The car was purchased at Carter Chevrolet in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and somehow made it to Alberta, where I bought it.
My plan for the car?...Just cruise it around...race it...on the street, at the track...just as it was meant to be used.
