Panama 69 RS Z-28 sighted (PICS NOW ADDED)
« on: April 20, 2007, 11:49:09 PM »
  Im heading home from a S. America trip tomorrow and could not believe my eyes when I arrived at a restaurant yesterday in Panama City (central america)and there was a 69 RS Z-28 in the parking lot...and better yet it was really hurtin...the one fender appeared to be painted with a can..the door was all dented..it was jacked up in the rear and overall was in bad shape, but obviously daily driven. i briefly checked the car out...It was (I believe) lemans blue...it had black houndstooth...early walnut wheel...6k tack and guages(although the colors on the tach were very faded)..12 bolt, discs, rear bumper guards..flat hood... it had the one fender and rear Z emblems and a Panama license plate...it was either missing the hideaways or they were open..I really didnt look at it too long, because I just had to speak with the owner, so I snapped 2 quick pics and entered the restaurant to search for the owner..next thing, I heard the rumble of glass packs?? in the parking lot...the car was pulling away as I ran out of the restaurant  :(:(:(   Anyway, it just goes to show that they are still out there..

You just gotta go a little further to find them...   


 im not sure how to post the pics...anyone help?

Go to www.photobucket.com and you can get a free account that will host your photos so you can post them on the forum. Or email them to me and I will do it. I can't wait to see this car :) My vintage race car was in Central America in El Salvador for years...lots of cool cars down there.

Yeowch.....it looks like it would be a fun car to beat the piss out of, but its pretty darn cool that you found it that far away from the states!!!
