I still live in Meadville, PA , can't find him.
I believe that picture was March or April 1969. The car was only one or two weeks from delivery at that time. I purchased the Z new from Kaputa Chevrolet in Tionesta PA. I had been looking for one and a friend told me they had gotten one in. The dealer told me that when he ordered it he requested the vinyl top to be deleted, but he was still surprised when he saw it on the transporter without the top. Eight years ago I gave Ray Goss, who was the third owner, all the documention; window sticker, finance papers, bill of sale,everything that I had been holding on to for years. When I bought the car, the dealer asked, " do you want the emission equipment left on the car or do you want it in a box in the trunk". I said " in the trunk". When I handed over the documents, I gave him all that smog stuff, except for the air pump, I had misplaced it. Those too tall slicks on the car in the pic belonged on a friend's Dodge 440 RT. The Z with it's stock 4:11's wouldn't turn em, and I ruined the clutch disc trying. Two weeks old and Chevrolet replaced the disc and ground the flywheel under warranty for me. My dad who was all about racing stuff, was p/o, he wasn't making the payments but couldn't believe that a new car needed to have headers and was less than a month old.
I never thought to make a copy of the window sticker/vin.
