Was just looking through my February issue of Muscle Car Review (page 48) and saw this barn find Garnet Red 69 Z/28 RS. Does anybody have anymore info on this car? Where it came from how many miles . What a great find!

I just got off another web site that has made negative and positive comments about my old rusty car. I sort of wish I had left it at home and took a big fancy nice car that every one has seen a thousand of. (not really)A lot of people enjoyed looking at the car at the FORGE SHOW and I am glad Tim asked me to bring it. I have a bunch of old muscle cars, but the red Z is the only car I have that I have been excited about in years. It is missing the original smog, shocks, and horns. Nothing else has ever been touched. Original plug wires, carb, dist.rad. fan, the list goes on and on. The man who had the car new put the smog and 2 of the original wheels in a corn crib on their farm and some one stole them. It was parked in 1975 but the engine will still crank over. I know it is a project, but I got GM sheet metal with the car when I purchased it so I will not need to hunt parts. My wife tells me if I find a pile of horse manure in a field and it has tires and rims around it I would try to buy and bring home. It is a sickness I have that I hope is never cured. Thanks , Robert Hurst Campton, Ky.

Robert, welcome to the site. You can't leave us hanging like this, we love these types of finds. Tells us more, How did you locate this car? Did it come with any original dealer documentation? Did you buy it from the original owner?

You are right, this is not something you would typically see at a car show in the current condition. It's also sad to think your car is being bashed on other web sites as someone in the know would certainly appreciate this sort of find. I hope you realize most posts generally are in fun and most of us really collect these cars as a hobby and not for profit.

I for one love the hunt more than anything else.

Welcome Robert, please take many photos if and when you decide to start a restoration... there is nothing like an original car, even if it needs a complete restoration... they are only original ONCE!
