The front spring would also have "EE" on them if they're original....Joe
That's even on the trim tag!  :)

Didnít GM keep some of these show cars in there historical archive building....does anybody know?
No. GM kept very few cars. Only relatively recently did they create the GM Heritage Collection. Most vehicles in it have been acquired from outside of GM.

It's discussed on site.

It has a 10 bolt and only 5BY on the tag - it's neither a RS or a SS.

VIN book???

A month early is pretty darn close - right casting - all depends on how exact you want to be.

They are not easy to find. They didn't hold up and they weren't desirable. I'd probably install a Muncie if I didn't have one.

General Discussion / Re: First gen Z/28 registry
« on: March 12, 2019, 04:30:27 PM »

Any registry has issues with being maintained and the data being vetted. There have been L89 registries and 68 Z registries - gone.  And if the registry is just starting now, 50 years later, there's a lot of data / history that's happened and wasn't captured.
Does being in a 69 Z registry automatically make the car a 69 Z?

Panther prototype pictures. Kudos to Lee Stewart for the pics.
Design is pretty fixed at this point. Oct 65 pictures.

Here's some more clay pics, apparently farther along the design process.
They cover the clay with mylar to replicate the paint and glass finish, btw.

There must be 2 iterations of the car.
The publicity pics have headrest seats. The other pics show a pod and headstop where the headrests would be.
No good pics of the bed.
I saw that a guy made a clone of this car.

Says it's an RS tribute. So RS maybe was added.

That's why I listed the VIN - then it's searchable without inquiry required.
The db is not a registry - we're not trying to track every car. It takes a serious amount of time to maintain, so quality data over quantity.

Fwiw, junk like this doesn't go into the db. A waste of my time.
There's tons of these types of cars out there. I'd rather not have the site about them.

I've done several. Every one that I've done, the spring was stretched. Take off the stretched end and make a new eye on the spring. Light lube helps too.

Here another shot of it, but at the "Tennessee 500" - the front fender has been relettered.
