    It's from a 1975 Hot Rod article explaining the Z's birth and death. I'm not sure the month. I'll find it, good info.

    Wonder why they didn't include the 67 Z. Didn't they make around 600 Zs in 67

    Its a great article, I'll get the date when I get a chance. Lots of inside development from the day at Chevrolet Engineering Center; as well as the reason they killed it in 75. Stating that that F&X group couldn't make a meaningful Z28 without dual Cats and exhaust, they couldn't get it to pass the 50,000 mile emissions test; as well the true death blow was the noise reduction standard. they would have to change the rear axle ratio as well. Making it a high 17 second car, considering its 1971-74 numbers in the 15's, it came down to a matter of pride. I'm not sure why the artist didn't include the incipient Z. The author talks about the development with the 283 to 302. Most common knowledge now but an interesting view from the day. He also builds his best Z from the paint to steering by year.
