A little history update.

I just had the pleasure of speaking with the original owner of my Z/28, Jack Levy.  Jack who is now retired and lives in Tucson Arizona with his wife.  Jack bought this Z/28 brand new as a graduating gift to himself out of high school in Manhattan.  Jack then enlisted into the Army and was stationed in Fort Knox, Ky.  He purchased the Z with power steering for the sole purpose of running the car in Motocross races and p.s. was much needed.  He'd run it in Louiville Ky and across the river in Cincinnati Ohio.   Said he won a few 1st places but mostly all 2nd places only because there was another fella that was running a 302 boss, and that guy had more money than   As he was blowing up a motor monthly.  Jack said if he ran the Z to 6500 rpm's the other guy ran his Boss to 7000 and if Jack ran it 7500 the guy ran his Boss to 8000.  Jack said it was the only car he and his wife had.  So it was a daily driver off the track

In the end, after the Military Jack and his wife had moved to Denver then Tampa.  With one child, the 2nd on the way and no job Jack needed a car that was better on fuel than his 8 mpg Z.  In 1974 Jack traded it in on a 4 door, 4 cylinder Honda for what was a great deal at the time.... a whopping $740.00 trade in value

It was only a few years ago that Jack said he threw away the original window sticker and Bill Of Sale from '69.  Now how cool would that of been to have landed those 2 pieces.

We are going to stay in contact, he was thrilled to hear that the car was still around.  I'm to send him pics of it now and as the restoration moves along.  Jack would like to see it on day as he comes to the Florida area once in awhile.  I'm hoping one day to get a picture of the Z with the original owner and me.

Jack said when he gets back home in about a month (travels a lot being retired) he's going to see if he can dig up more pics of the car when he owned it.

Thought I'd share that little update to the history.

Ruben, I too was working on a car with fiber optics, and like you missing some line. I found about two feet at a Corvette shop in Portland, Oregon about 6 years ago and that was all they had, and I was still short but made due with what I had. I know the telecommunication industries have been using fiber optic cable for years. It's a long shot but might be worth calling one up and asking some questions. Also if your chrome parts are pitted have them rechromed, the after market ones are crap and they need a lot of modifying to make them usable with the original optic parts, sorry I could not be more help finding the cable.

Shipping records show that it was shipped to Jack Maxton Chevrolet, Worthington, OH.

When I got it, it was bored .100 over and had a couple of sleeves.  It is cracked up pretty good unfortunately.  Sitting in my garage.  Not sure it will ever run again the way it should.

I sold that block in 2006 I believe.  I found it in Eastern Ky at a speed shop, it come out of West Virginia and needed some work.  If I remember correctly, the cast date was in January.
