Car Life July 68 Z28 Road Test
« on: February 19, 2018, 09:46:33 PM »
I found several 67 road tests here but did not find this one for 1968.  Apologies if a repost, but here it is.

Those 'magazine' road tests from the summer '68 timeframe were probably ALL of the same '68 Z28 (at the Mesa Proving Grounds) and wearing some 'test pieces'.. ie. the disk brake rear...

This test is on a drum brake car. They show the disc photo and reference the past test they did in Mesa.

That brings back a lot of memories.  I bought my used 302 Camaro Sport coupe in the spring of 1971.  Took me years to figure out why my car didn't have Z/28 emblems on the front fenders.  Culberson Stowers Chevy helped me fix that issue.  lol   

Hard to believe all these years later I used this car for 4 years as a daily driver.

Another '68 Z/28-RS feature in the September '68 Motorcade. Different car; has white stripes. U46 on this one also.
