Must have been hot in that barn, because the rear stripes shrunk! I call BS on this one
Did the stripes shrink? I think they were in the barn so long that they got lonely and moved closer together.

LOL  thats funny

These "Barn Find" ads that you see so often anymore are laughable. Kind of makes you want to find a cool old barn, ask permission to park your car in there for a few hours, take some pictures and someday if you decide to sell. Bingo! Ca Ching!
Of course they use the term "Barn Find" very loosely these days. I think if it was bought or had been stored in a garage, storage unit, in someone's back yard or an old business they call it a "Barn Find"

I know that finding a classic in an old barn has happened but just not this often.
I personally know of a guy just last year that was driving out in a rural farm area just a few miles north of me. The guy was looking for antiques. He saw an old farm with several out buildings and barn. He stopped to ask the old gentleman if he could look around and he said yes. He went into the barn and with a mountain of dust and an old tire on the hood he found a 1962 Impala SS 409, 4spd, convertible. It hadn't been driven since the 70's. It had the original paint, interior, everything. The mice and rats had done there usual damage. I've seen the pictures when he found it and before he pulled it out and after he pulled it out and loaded it up on the trailer. He cleaned it up and the paint was still in very good condition. The old farmer sold it to him for somewhere around $5000.
So it does happen but just very, very rarely.

Yeah, I noticed the same thing along with other issues that it has for such an original low mileage barn find car.

Its amazing how many of these "Original Z/28 Barn Finds" are popping up these days.
I wonder if that old house/barn in the pictures is where they found it.  Roll Eyes
Its supposedly going to sell at no reserve to the highest bidder.

Thank you Roy! I'm in.

 I think this is great news and I will definitely spend the $50. I already know the dealership on two of my cars but it will just be one more piece of documentation to authenticate my cars in a fraudulent car world.
I have also had great success with the DMV title histories. Its a lot more possible than people think in a lot of states and yes how you word your request is important.
I also agree with an earlier post concerning some people that have what they think are the "original" POP's, window stickers and build sheets. Probably going to be some very unhappy folks when they get there report and will probably will cause some law suits and justifiably so.

Chick did the original owner work for GM ? Engineer maybe ?
That is a good question. With the young man looking very business like and the front plate reading GM 1259.
I really enjoy all the old original photos!

Nice work guys.
Thats what I was thinking. This site is amazing!
174  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Silver Z pictures from 1971 with second owner on: January 12, 2014, 10:48:41 AM
Great pic, although the young man doesn't seem to excited....

Yeah, I noticed that the young man looked a little stiff and stuffy in Chick's photo opposed to the two laid back, cool looking dudes in Lawrence and my old photos leaning on there cars  Smiley

Chick, am I reading that tag right?  GM 1259? Thats kinda cool.  Also noticed an error in my post. It should have read Marlin, not Merlin. Sorry Mr. Spotts if your are reading this Smiley
176  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Silver Z pictures from 1971 with second owner on: January 11, 2014, 08:25:28 PM
Here are the pictures from my original owner that I posted over on Team Camaro a few months ago. I know a lot of you are on that site as well and maybe saw it but thought maybe some on here have not.
Also an update on the Yenko. After the post I was contacted by the Yenko guys and with Merlin's help I did track down the Deuce and talked to the last registered owner that totaled it out in the late 70's. It was then parted out Sad

It just doesn't get any better than that. Very nice!! I was lucky enough to make contact with the original owner of my 69 Hugger Orange Z and he sent me original polaroid pictures of it when it was new and then the car he purchased next. A Hugger 70 Yenko Deuce with him leaning against the fender.
Lawrence, like me I'm sure it made your day when you received them.   Congrats!
