As far as me making my Z/28 into a Rally-Z I'm going all the way that it's going to be near impossible to be said otherwise. We are cutting the hole in the fire wall for the vacuum line, it already had RS fenders with tabs, buying the rear tail lamp template to cut out the back up lights, RS inner fenders, etc. I'm doing it all the way. If there's anything I missed someone message me please.  The car is going to be with me for the long haul. As far as giving it to one of my kids...the way I see it I'm 27 now and my wife and I haven't even started yet. By the time my kids would be old enough I doubt they would have much interest in a then 60ish year old car that's not easy to drive. Who knows what we all will be driving 20 years from now.
I wanted to buy my Uncles 69 COPO very bad but the thing that was weighing in my mind was would it be worth the 80k I spent on it 50 years from now?

I agree with everything you said, I'm going to make the car the way I remember it and the way the pictures show.  I can't wait to take a picture in front of my completed Rally-Z now that I'm old (27).

So I feel like I can weigh in on this as it looks like so far I am the youngest one here. Being that I'm only 27 I must say that I'm into this because I literally grew up with it and racing. Like I said in previous posts my Dad had a 1969 Daytona Yellow Rally-Z. Now that I'm a little older I wanted ken myself. I've thought about that car so much and it has been brought up many times over the heads about how nice a car it could of been if it was done better. Well now that I found a true Daytona Yellow (X-33) car I'm going it make it look exactly like my Dad's did roughly 24 years ago.

Some people say don't make  a z/28 into a Rally-Z but for me it's what I've always thought about and what I remember. I will never get rid of my car so resale value is not that important to me. Plus I've had many conversations with my Dad and Uncle about wether these cars are even going to be worth anything 30-40 years from now. Here's a few examples why... who can afford them? I busted my butt to get a rolling body (X-33). It wasn't exactly cheap by any means. My wife will never be able to drive a non power steering, 4-speed car. Driving my Uncles Copo with no power steering and 4-speed wasn't a walk in the park but to me it was fun. Can't say anyone else I know considers "Driving" a car fun.

These pictures are now 24 years old. Man time flys!

Thanks. It's a work in progress. We have it on the rotisserie now and it's getting a new drivers (rear) floor pan, toe board and trunk fillers and then off to paint.

It is an accessible systems rotisserie. I ended up buying new after an unsuccessful search for a used one.

Never restored one in my garage, usually at my uncle's house. The garage gets cleaned regularly, I guess I have OCD.

Driver's rear floor pan. When I got the car it was just laid in there and had a few welds and they sealed her up with some good ol expanding foam. "Quality work in my opinion".


Drivers toe board had a replacement toe baord just laid right on top of it till I pried it out in 5 mins.


The best for last...The car has had quarters put on it and if you were to go to all that trouble why would you not replace the trunk fillers??



Coolest thing I found when cleaning out the interior

After a little bit of a battle we got the Z/28 up on the rotisserie. Now to figure out the balance bolts

Thanks Kurt, I didn't think it looked right. Back to searching for a real one.

No not in Tennessee

Not sure, it's a Craigslist ad. I was hoping you guys could tell me wether it's a real DZblock before I start talking prices with the guy.

Does the gang stamp look legit to you guys?
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rotisserie on: September 25, 2013, 12:57:52 PM
What did you guys do for the front? Attach to the subframe or firewall? And did you have to buy additional brackets for the front? Thanks for the help!
