Rick, Yes I have to agree that the color most likely hurt this Z. It takes a particular buyer for this (pastel) color, which IMO there just isn't. Just like everything else.. No demand = No $$. We know Clem's wife even hated the color. The pastel color doesn't scream "Muscle" for a Z/28 let alone any other car. I don't think I've ever seen a Mary K (Cosmetic) car blow by me and I sat there saying.. Wow ! that's bad a$$...lol.
I was really referring that $60K ($59,100) for a Z that screams muscle with loads of doc's would of drawn more...IMHO
