Value is hurt with the NOM, but condition seems to be making up for that!

This is sounding better all the time. How could so many '68 Z's have been hiding all these years?
Because everyone wants a 69....   :)

Can't blame 'em...  the '69's are so pretty (and fast)... of course the 68s are 'almost' as fast...  :)

  That's pretty bold Kurt. '69's are like tattoos, everybody's got one.

First year cars ALWAYS have bugs (1967). Second year cars have everything pretty much ironed out by then so they're PERFECT (1968). Then GM gets a hair up their @$$ and start screwing with a perfect thing, so third year cars are always messed up again (1969)!!

Engine gone sucks, but on the good side, being 1 owner, there is a explanation and logic why it is gone. Get every bit of paper, and transcripts of owner recollections. History and documents and 1 owner trump missing born with engine, IMO.

Oh, and to settle this debate, H.O. cars are the quickest....and we know what year has H.O.?

Yeah, the 1967-1969 Pontiac Firebird H.O.! But we're not talking about Firechickens here!!
