Road test of a 1968 Z/28 from the September 1970 issue of CAR, a British publication. Interesting read because the car
is two years old at this point and it also gives a foreigner's take on what they think of the car. (Jon Mello Collection)

That was a fun read. Some of the usual inaccuracies, but 20 mpg?

I remember getting as much as 20mpg with my '69 Z back in the '70s but maybe I was doing the math wrong.  Tongue

I was thinking the test drive was all down hill. The best I remember getting getting was 15-ish. Maybe I did the math wrong. Then again, gas was cheap and I didn't care until the oil embargo years.

Thought maybe they did not do the kilometer to mile conversion ,which would put it at around 12mpg (off the top of my head). Interesting article . Two different mind sets concerning autos between here and across the pond back then. Interesting the Z was so well received. Love them articles Jon.

Definitely a different mind set but nice to see some praise for the car. Glad you enjoyed the article, Steve.
