Is your Z a completely original car? If so, then $7000 would have been a steal. Anyway, I live in GA and it's nice to see others from my neck of the woods post here, this site is great. If I were you, I'd repaint with Daytona Yellow. Guys, what the heck is wrong with Orange/Black? I sold my numbers matching '69 Z back in the summer(now I wish that I hadn't) that was Hugger Orange/Black Vinyl top/Black stripes and Orange Deluxe Houndstooth. This was a stunning color combo.
