Lowest mile 79 Z28

I just purchased from the original owner a 79 Z28 4 speed with 2031 miles and I am curious as to how many other are there out there with lower miles. My first new car was a 79 and this brings back memories.

Re: Lowest mile 79 Z28

Not computer savvy, will get my son to post pics. Brought it home on car trailer, drove it two miles, parked my 08 Gt500 outside and placed Z in garage.

Re: Lowest mile 79 Z28

Looking for original tires , either the Uniroyal, which most had or the Goodyears. Does anyone know where I can find?

Re: Lowest mile 79 Z28

Rick's Camaros has the Goodyear Polysteel Radials available. They're not cheap, but here's the link:

Re: Lowest mile 79 Z28

I changed the BF Goodrich radials out with the Goodyear Polysteel. Go through Rusty Small in your other post, he is a good guy to deal with.

Re: Lowest mile 79 Z28

A guy I worked with who retired about 4-5 years ago had a 78 or 79 that he bought new and had a couple thousand miles on it. He always said it was going to be his retirement but I doubt he would sell it. He said the most miles he put on it in a year was about 100.
