Took my 70Z for a Last Ride Today.

Took my 70 Z28 with a 7000rpm 625Hp 460ci BBC for a Last Ride today.

Sold her after owning it for for 35 years. SAD SAD! But at least I've been there and did it ;o)

Re: Took my 70Z for a Last Ride Today.

I'm sure you thought it over for a long time Ron. Do you have something else in mind ?

Re: Took my 70Z for a Last Ride Today.

Most can't wait 20 minutes until the motor reaches operating Temp.

What about the '71 and up spoiler? Love that car. I had the same car back in '79. Same colour and stripe delete!

Kindda like the idea.

Sad to read of the selling of your Camaro, as said, I'm sure you gave it plenty of thought.

Re: Took my 70Z for a Last Ride Today.

There's a ton of guys who take the V8 WJ's and supercharge them. They're running 10's in the quarter. In a Jeep.

I used to own a 99. Loved that beast. One of the best cars I've ever owned. It would go anywhere, had lots of power, and never, ever gave up (except that one time when I managed to literally tear the transfer case in half and leave it on the road while driving... but we don't talk about that. thread here: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/n...erally-820264/)
