 ko-lek-tor     I am really not sure I had to give it some credibility based on you questioning things about the car. I am just not sure if you have or don't have the credentials to warrant that. Who said no one rebuilt the engine, it was rebuilt as I said back in the 80s it just was not bored apparently. Since I doubt you are going to come look at it in person I really think it is wrong of you to question not one but two people on something you have only looked at pics of and you study cars on the net. I personally have owned and documented well over 100 cars myself and documented many more with our customers, and most of them being Camaros. I have been restoring cars for over 25 years in my company. The person I bought this car from had it in his shop for a long, long time, it had not run in a long time either and I have as you said spoken with the other owners as well. When I bought the car he had know idea what a L78 was or what it means and never said it was anything but a pace car. I pretty well know the complete and whole history of the car. I can't say why things were done by others to cars over years but just that they were done.  I notice you said "if" I have contacted them, there is no if , I did and have! I have personally owned and seen in person many good VIN stampings and many not so great VIN stampings. I don't think one or the other gives you reason to say it is suspect?  I believe when you question something told to you over and over you are indicting the statements he made and trying to discredit them, Why??? The man selling this car is also very knowledgeable about the cars and just finished a great restoration of a documented Canadian COPO car. I just think if you have questions about a car for sale you really should contact the owner , talk to him or her and ask and not condemn him or his car based on limited knowledge. People who read these forums believe what they read and you might just be wrong and devalue his car at the same time. Sorry if I sound a little peaved but I just don't think people should shoot down a really good car and owner just because they can get on here and do it.  z28z11, I agree with you as I have seen some crazy things done by chevy and by car owners over the years I have been at this!  Thanks

Hello guys, don't usually post here but do get a lot of great info. That being said I want to address some issues that ko-lek-tor and some other had on this car. I am the one that found this car (in 06 I believe) in a old warehouse in Texas. I have pics of it as we rolled it out. The interior is the original interior and I have pics to prove all that too.  ko-lek-tor what claim are you not buying. The deck was cut by a machine shop in the late 70s or early 80s. I personally have talked to all of the owners of this car more than once, to the owner of the dealership that sold it originally and then took it in for a trade a year later and sold it again. When I got the car I had the engine and trans freshened up due to the fact they had been sitting in a not so clean envirement for a long time. We just honed it, bearing and rings, valve job and put it back together. I would not even let them clean the block or any other parts. Same with the transmission, just freshened, not even cleaned. Steve, I can say I have no idea why they decked the block but it was done a long time ago so I am sure we will never know that answer.  I sold this car to my friend that now has it for sale and I can assure you he is not saying anything about this car that is not true. If any of you have any questions or want to come see the car come on down to Texas, I and the owner have tons of pics and docs with the car.

Looking for help locating a 1969 Z28 out of Texas. We last sold the car in 78. When it was sold here in Houston by my brother in 78 it was dark blue with Flames and white interior. It had been custom painted by Frank's custom paint. The car was originally burgundy or garnet red with white stripes and white standard interior. When he sold it it still had the 302 in it and it had a lot of hi performance work done to it. The 4 speed had been replaced by a T-400. It had Shelb slots on it. It was sold to a guy south of Houston that worked for one of the big oil companies. I know this is old information to go by but all I have at the moment. My brother passed recently and I am trying to locate the car. Please call or email with any info

thanks for your time
