Well Robert I have that same sickness every since I found out that The # 57 ZL1 was sold at your hometown dealer some 20+ years ago. I always still hope to find a car like you have found in my search.

I just love looking at the survivor cars.  We older guys have to apolgize for those generally younger folks that tend to be negative about your car. It's a shame that this car looks to have been sitting outside. Had it been protected, It could litterly be cleaned up and left as is. It is kind of a shame to restore something that is a true icon of the 60's muscle era and has been a time capsule for 35 years. Thanks for sharing your car with us. Be sure to keep us posted and we dont care what those clowns at the other site said. I hate to admit to alliance  to some of those guys but I'm a member of that site also.

I personally think its an awesome car as many do, only you know the condition but if it was possible I would get it running, treat it to protect if possible and leave it as is. As mentioned its a time capsule and has a lot of preserved info.

You can restore one at any point you wish... it's more fun to find what made this car different from the next... that's one of the most interesting things to see, the differences from car to car.

Rick, Sold that old cap you sent for 30 bucks, gave the money to my mother-in-law, she wants a new pistol for some reason. Hung the shirt on the wall so I can brag about my old pal Rick. I do not understand the vacuum lines but the original owner assured me they have never been touched. Maybe a question for people who know a lot more than I.Thanks for the shirt and cap. Mike, I found the Datona yellow Z/L1 in a building in Walled Lake, Mi. The man who had the car did not realize it was what it was. I could not afford it at the time, so I filled him in on the history of the car. That at least got it back in the world. I have some friends who have the original engine in an old closed down gas station in Ky. Sits in the floor with a little dust on her. Came out of a dirt track car but thats another story. Like every one else, I love the hunt. I have found COPOs  in barns, 67 Z on a side street in Mount Sterling, Ky. A 65 A/FX hemi car in Hazard, ky.that had been stored since 1967. I have had a ball and we all need to realize that the greatest thing we get from our old cars are the new friends we make. I would like to thank  everyone out there in our hobby who helps keep the love alive for our old cars.Richard, Missed you at the Forge last year. Sure hope you show up with your old car in Sept.

It's too bad the engine isn't back with the yellow ZL1.

I agree Charley. I knew it was still in Ky but ithe engine was never reunited with the # 57 Yellow car.

Rebuilt carb, changed oil and plugs, pre-lubed, filed points. Fired right up with 65 pounds oil pressure. Sure made my day. Happy in Ky.
