The original owner of my 69 Z/28 bought it new at Wilkins Chevrolet, Norfolk VA then went down the street a year later to Colonial to purchase a new 70 Yenko Deuce. Must have been a cool place to car shop back in the day. He sent me polaroid's of both cars.

with Norfolk being a navy town, I'm betting that your 'original owner' was a Navy man in '69-70, Len!  :)   I was in the USAF during those years, stationed at Keesler AFB, MS, and our hobby shop was like a 'Muscle Car Gathering' every weekend when it was open during those years.    We didn't have or make very much money, but be assured we spent it ALL on muscle cars.. :)

PS.  Does your car still have the front guards on it, Len?   Mine doesn't have, but I have NOS ones I intended to install, but now I'm having second thoughts.  Do you like them?

Gary, you are right he was a Navy man stationed aboard the USS Muliphen. He had just returned from a tour of Viet Nam when he purchased the Z.

No, the front guards are not there now. Its funny you should mention them, after I posted these pictures I was asking myself that very question. I don't think I really care for them although I'm sure I will put them back on when I do the frame off someday.
