Our 2 year old 69 Z/28


Summer 1971, Toronto, at a closed on Sunday Fairview Shopping Mall.....remember those....:confused
My wife Lynda by our 2 year old 69 Z/28, still my favorite girl :love and favorite car from the past.....smile

I've learned recently that this color combination is very rare in the 69 Z/28.

Very nice colour combo. Any idea if the car is still around?

 Sold the car shortly after these photos to a fellow in Georgetown, Ontario and in fact took the 68 Triumph motorcycle as part payment.

Saw the car at a show at the CNE's Automotive Building some 10 years later but the owner was not there at the time and I did not return.

Carried a pic in my wallet for years as tho it was an old girlfriend.....no.....would love to own it again.

Attempts to find out if it still exists have been unsuccessful.......hmm

You could post on the Lost Musclecars Facebook page. Do you have a VIN? It used to be you could go to the MTO and for a fee get a list of all the cars you've owned since 1973.

Hard to believe

When you were at Gorries do you remember the layout of the showroom ? My Dad always talked about walking into the showroom. Pointing at the car on a pedestal and buying it. A 1965 Oldsmobile 88 coupe in medium blue.

 Hey Darryl I was there in 65 but don't remember much of the showroom.

They didn't let grease monkeys near the new stuff unless it needed fixing on the spot.

One day three of us ran thru the showroom going to shoot pool across the street at lunch time and boy

did we get sh*t when we got back.
