Back from the midwest road trip.  Did two certifications but the kicker here is both cars were real black 69 Z28s.  I'm sure this will never happen again.  Rare, my eye!!

Second car took me to Rapid City, SD.  This area is beautiful and the people were so friendly.  I hope I get to go back there.  After I was done appraising car 2, I was able to get out to Mt. Rushmore, and the Crazy Horse monument.  What a breath taking place.  Makes you proud to be an American, that's for sure.

Oak City and the Big Easy are next.

jerry, this is jason.  you are welcome in our state any time.  it just goes to show maybe we are not so backwards here in the middle of nowhere.  you would be suprised i am sure by the number of car outhere.  we value the past and do not salt the roads.  so no one drove there cars in the winter, only there 4x4s.  i have to busy to get the rear axle pics on the site as of yet. i guess that is good. if i am getting paid to work on other peoples cars than not looking at mine is acceptable to me.

Jerry -

Is black a rare color for Camaros in general, or only for Z/28s?

Black is rare for any 69 Camaro.  Ask Kurt to check the DB.

Have seen a few 69 Z28s in black but two in one trip is unusual.

Black was the 3rd least used color out of 18, not including special paint. It's in here.

Jerry/Kurt,
How many other original paint Tuxedo Black Z's have been found?
I know that there is the 1200 mile black RS with stripe delete... so it would be a - - paint car.

Jerry's the Charles Karalt of the muscle car world.  I see a new Speed Channel segment in my crystal ball. Instead of "On the road with Charles Karalt" it would be "On the road with Jerry MacNeish". Have the show contain a little "classic car hunting" with  some local flavor of the area visited. I'd toon in on Sunday mornings! Don't forget to give me credit for the pitch Smiley

James,
There's 23 black 69 Z's in the db.  Doubtless there's more out there, I know there's several that I've seen but not entered.

Kurt,
Out of those 23 how many have their original paint?
The Black car RS/Z is probably going to go up for sale... but we may wait until after Carlisle... it has been invited for
the Vintage Certification Program.

I have a 69 RS/Z28 that was originally black, but I am trying to find out why it is a - - code.  As far back as I have traced it so far (to 72) it had white stripes on it.  Did many dealerships add the stripes back then?

What part of San Diego are you going to? (just curious as I live in Northern San Diego county)...If you're nearby give me a shout and maybe I can intorduce you to a cool Mexican Restaurant.
