Agreed. The average market for a great original 1970 Z28 is about $45K tops right now. You make more money if you cheat on the "rare" stuff.

You really don't like the 1970 Z28 do you? And they made 8733 of them. I think there may be 50 original drivetrain cars left of that number, using my very un-scientific poll...most people blew up the original motor because there was no rev-limiter on it and most car guys are really stupid!

Yes. I have the doc from the Vintage group and even long before the Vintage group started Larry Davidson was doing it on the side in the GM Parts Building. So I have one from Larry and the other from George Zapora.

I don't understand what you are trying to convey. Is this a Canadian thing because of exports?

Yes,it only pertains to cars shipped to Canada. I dont think the record are even in the US,it was more of an action on the part of the Canadians.

they're all sport coupes , the only other model is ( until 77 ) the Type LT ( FS87 not FQ87 ) which appears in 73 . all camaros were the FQ87 sport coupe with various or no options on them

The 1970 standard front end was always just called the Sport Coupe. The funny nose front end was always called the Rally Sport. You can always add Coupe to Rally Sport but that's the way we keep track of what they are.

All 70-81 Camaros were sports coupes. Other variations of what would be in that box would be a code for convertable,station wagone,2 or 4 door sedan,and 4 door hardtop. All of which never came on 2nd gen Camaros. Even 70-81 Firebirds were sports coupes.
