    Hey everyone! I'm a new member to the forum here, but not to Camaros. I have a few questions about my 73 Z28 and I was wondering if you guys could help me answer them. I'm try to figure out the history of my car but continue running into dead ends. I bought it back in 2001 from the second owner who lived in Highland Park, Illinois with 8768 actual miles. The car has all original paint, interior, tires, drive train, etc. The car is basically in "show room new" condition top to bottom, inside and out(It even still smells like a new car inside). The gentleman I bought it from purchased it September of 1995 with a little under 5,000 miles. He told me he bought it from an Estate Sale of multiple (around 50 he said) classic muscle cars. He said that all the cars in the Estate Sale were like the Z28 in terms of condition, they all had right around 5,000 original miles, and were in great shape. The reason for the Estate Sale was because the owner of the Estate passed away and willed all the cars to his nephew, and his nephew had the sale. I believe from what I was told, that the Nephew lived in Illinois at the time that all of this happened, but the Estate Sale was in Florida at the location were the cars were stored. Unfortunately for me, that was all the info I could get from the gentleman I bought it from about the history of the car. He told me that when he bought the car the smog stuff was off of it, it had an old set of headers, an old Sun Tach, a 70 style Hurst Shifter, and a set of Traction Bars. He removed the Traction Bars, reinstalled the sway bar, replaced the headers with a set of ceramic coated headers and a complete stainless steel exhaust system which I have the receipt for from 1997. According to the original window sticker, the car was sold new at Marhefka Chevrolet in Pennsylvania. Who ever owned the car had to have kept it in a climate controlled environment, and they had to have taken good care of it. The paint has no scratches, dings, dents, or spots that are checking. The tires are original, date coded, and have no dry rot. The car is in near new condition with the exception of the above listed mods that were most likely done when the car was new. Everything else is present, in working order, intact, etc. Even the seat belt buzzer works! If anyone knows any info on my Z28, or remembers anything about this car I would appreciate the information greatly! If there are any questions I can answer that may help find anymore info on it, I will gladly answer them. I am posting some pictures of it that I took earlier today, and I apologize that they are not the best.

    Thanks again everyone, MY73Z.

    Never seen it before. I notice the shifter has also been replaced. Very nice car, hope you enjoy it. I came close to buying a 73 Z28 from the original owner back in '75. I couldn't afford his asking price so I bought a '71 Z28.
