If the complete drive line survived the crash it could still be out there somewhere...

If you read the description from the Link that Bryon posted it says it was an SS, since they didn't want to wait for a Z./28.

Thats funny. I can't imagine restoring a car that is only ten years old now a days.

So even in 1978  these cars were considered special enough to restore?

Sorry. Midwest or areas that experience the 4 Seasons.

There used to be a local track everywhere. I'm glad you guys are keeping them open with active participation back there . Rock on..🤘

keep up the progress! When will it hit the road?

(BTW I think only the early cars had the GM logo on the heater hose, most other cars had the ribbed hoses. *Also -They make a better repo of that GM hose)

Garage Talk / Re: Attending Hot August Nights - Virginia City Nevada

Now that you mention the concerts, my friends and i did attend a beach boys concert while we were there. It was probably the 3rd time I had seen them live.
With "little deuce coupe" , "409", "little ole lady from pasedena" , so many great tunes involving cars. To arrive at a concert where the parking lot os full of hot rods and muscle cars, you know you are in good company. Once you are pumped up from those great songs to go out to the parking lot and know you have a full night of cruising ahead, just awesome.

Neil Diamond... thats funny. I started attending the show back in the 90's when i was teen. The show has changed a bit since then, but mostly for the better.

I have been to many car events across the country, and HAN IMO has the most condensed amount of classic cars. There were so many when you are cruising around, you constantly have to have your head on a swivel. Jack Buss also has been there for the past few years ( except last year) , and reported that a group of 1st gen Camaro guys, parked together. I think he said there were about half a dozen real Z cars parked in row. Unless you go to a nationals event you don't really get to see that many one spot, so to see a handful of real ones all parked together is pretty cool.

I don't know how they organize the cruising now a days, but back then you could cruise down Virginia and all the other streets registered or not, it was a blast. You would be in pleasant traffic moving at a slow enough pace to check out all the cars around you. The sights and sounds of being surrounded by all those candy colored paint jobs, chrome and deep tone exhaust created a lot of good memories.

Have fun and take plenty of pics!

I get no kicks from putting something on a shelf to walk by and look at.

HA! I thought thats what you guys in the midwest had to do 6 months out of the year !   :o

While I don't take the time to go to a sanctioned track, there are enough back roads here to go WAT year round. 8)

I gotcha. Thanks for answering my question. So the easiest way for them to make a fake sticker though, is to start with an original, and then based on this example they could just stick it over another sticker if they wanted.
So in some ways is verifying a  68 Z similar to identifying a 69 L.A. Z car?
Since there is no X codes, you just going over components?

Sorry, didn't see an answer, so is the reason the font size looks different is because of heavier ink used from one batch to another? are the Z/28 stickers always thiner or does it just vary?
Are these questions to invasive as the answers would help those making fake stickers?
