    I have a 1971 Z22 w/ Z87 in dark saddle. Paint 62 top F. As near as I can tell they made 1864 Z22 with Z87. Add in the paint and it gets slimmer, add in the brown vinyl top and it gets slimmer yet.

    I hate when people let them sit out for 10 years in there driveway just to rust and get worse!! Theres a 69 Firebird at an apartment complex in town that sits in rain and snow and drives me crazy!

    One of my neighbors has 2. Both 73's one has been torn apart for years and is in his shop waiting for a ton of work and parts. The other is in his yard rusting away, pretty much beyond saving at this point. He believes that it is something special (motion car) because it has 4 strange holes in the tail pannel. That car needs everything, I am betting it is a year or less away from the back of the springs coming through the trunk floor!

    Ahh! Why do these people refuse to realize what there doing is wrong!? In my opinion, if its getting that bad and you really cared for the car youd sell it to somebody who will garage it or get a car port or something to atleast help it.

    I have a '70 Z and a '71 ? here at my house. Had a '73 LT that I picked up and passed along and cut up a '73?? for parts. I know of a '70 PJ and a '73 type LT three miles from here (a friend's). THere is a 70-73 ?? in Orange sitting in front of a Vista house house. I've seen at least five 70-73's in Oceanside over the last six months. and I've seen several dozen 70-73's on local craigs list in the last year. This does not count the countless 74-81's I run across.
    Other than my house I can't say the same for 1st gens.

    A related question. I own a numbers matching low miles 72 Z (non RS). For entertainment I browse the web sale sites to see whats out there. Last few weeks have observed a handful of quote "original" or "survivor" 72's with cowl tag and vins that are indeed 72's. Some of these cars have fine mesh grilles (i.e. 70-71). My 72 has a course mesh grille as were 73's. Is the "special painted grille" in the RS package also a tighter mesh for 72 & 73?

    Forget that question, I got it. Mislead by some RS info that did not note the tighter mesh. This confused me... briefly.

    Well, here's 3 more... My 73 plain jane, the 70 Z28 basket case, and the 70SS parts car. I have personally killed 2 70 RS's and 1 72 plain jane.
