Sold at auction for $150,000...Anybody else notice that depending on how the light hit it and/or the camera angle it looked like Cortez Silver?  :)

Two things .
I never knew that a 1969 Z/28 came with that type of air cleaner.
The sticker on the right fender is that not a sticker that was put on a Canadian Car.If so why was the car sold in the US?

It was added by the original owner. It's not original and wasn't available from the factory in the 1969 model year.

poor car.

Funny that this car is one of the original (20,302) 69 Z/28's, but has garnered more scrutiny and hostility than a cloned 69. ;D

I daresay there's NO ONE who has ever visited this site (or TC) who would Not LOVE to have that car..  an original Z28, special ordered by a known person - still living, the salesman who ordered it still living and both having signed letters so stating how it was ordered with the special paint.   Lost for awhile.. probably abused by 'kids'..?  :)   and then finally restored to a nice degree by a knowledgable craftsman.

Disregard all the 'crap'.. that's just imperfect people displaying their imperfections; the car is a gem.. and it can park in my garage anytime it wants.. and for all time.. :)

Just one man's opinion...

I agree, I've said that many times myself.  Not uncommon among sites to see this though.  It's so common that most sites have invented name for it (shark tank)  Kinda sad.

What's not so common anymore is actually seeing a real Z that doesn't have a fake tag, lol.  Strange when there were so many made to begin with.   That alone has to garner some respect in my eyes so I'm never so quick to judge on restoration mistakes. However from a learning standpoint, if it's done tastefully,  I'm all for it.  We just have to remember that not everyone wants or needs a car like that, and just want something to enjoy.

Scrutiny increases in direct proportion to price.
Scrutiny increases exponentially to rarity.

Scrutiny = CRG

I am guilty of it. It can be a curse, and a precautions gift.

Best wishes to the new owner.

Cars don't deserve sympathy. They are inanimate objects.

It may not deserve sympathy in the short view, but for others who see the long view, we may express empathy because we intuit the human care with which it was cars were created or restored. (Maybe more so for a car that is so sought after and cloned)

My 2 cents
