I have lost track of my old 1969 Z-28. It was in Meadville,PA owned by Ray Goss. I was told he moved ,his old # no longer works. I'm just interested in whether he still owns it, where it is and has he restored it. It is Hugger Orange, black stripes, no vinyl roof, engine was modified back in the day, angle plug, Lakewood scattershield and bars, 4:88 gears, crane roller rockers, etc. Anyone seen it or know the whereabouts ?

Love vintage shots. How orig was the car at that point? I thought you couldn't get black stripes without a black vinyl roof? I just googled ray goss in meadville, pa. A bunch of stuff comes up. Try there. Says he is the president of the Vernon central hose company and is 57 years old.

I still live in Meadville, PA , can't find him. Huh 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. Smiley  I never thought to make a copy of the window sticker/vin.

Shouldn't be too hard to find a hunger orange z-28 with black stripes in Pennsylvania! Where is meadville? Was it a flat hood car, what options did it have?

Judging by the height of those slicks, you cut your rear end gear from 4.11 to an equivalent 3.xx which probably had LOTS to do with not breaking the slicks loose... (I heard they had sticky tracks in PA?).. Smiley     
Ps.   You should have told your dad that early Z28's needed headers on day 1...  Smiley

Are you sure you don't have an old registration receipt buried somewhere ? I found one from my first car ('57 Bel Air) and tracked the car through my DMV. Yours might not (read as "probably" due to Fed privacy laws), but they ought to be able to tell you if the car is still registered in the state. Local law enforcement might track it for you, if you have a friend -

If you find the VIN you can use the Federal database to track the title to where it is registered today then you have to search land/property tax records from there to find the current owner or hire a PD.
