Caveat Emptor..again

Nice crisp looking tag. Nova gauges, January 1968 trans, March 1969 3.55 axle. Nothin' to worry about here.
Learning more and more about less and less...

You made me snort. Where can I get one of those fancy tire covers?

 But William, it is displaying the "The Petersen Muscle Car Cruise-in Best-in-Show" trophy. That's the hook right there!  :D
I haven't seen rivets with the centers missing that much. Nice looking car though for the untrained eye.

 Interesting, Kurt. It's sad in a way that now when I see a Z-28 at a show I automatically assume it is fake because there are so many, it seems.
Driving an AMC Pacer to a show draws more believers than a Z-28.

LOL Looks like I started a thread on this car a couple of years ago when I was new. Thought maybe it was a fake because of the BB heater core, I should have been more concerned about the 12A tag with an X code. Guess I've learned a thing or two...

I'm actually considering posting pictures of my car and asking the members to pick it apart. I learn more from these threads than anything else I read these days.
