Very nice!!!! Seems to me I have a copy of an old ad from the Auto Shopper from back around this time with a white/red L72 convert. I NEED to see if I can find that ad and see if it is the same car..... Congrats is an understatement!

I was just offered my 69 SS427 convertible back from the person I sold it to in 2008. Unfortunately it is just too cost prohibitive to restore and not be upside down in. No rust body and frame on a California car but just missing too many parts.

Which is likely why I did not buy it back then. Another dumb decision. LOL

I made a mistake, it was listed in the Nov 1986 issue which I do have along with the complete dealer file.

Sorry for the poor quality pictures of pictures.....these were the cool cars in town back when I was in high school. All photos are from the late 70's / early 80's.
Real 73 Z28 Turbo 400 - guy just sold it last year
The photos with the guys standing around were taken right before they headed to the Street Machine Nationals in 1984-ish time frame.
57 Chevy ran a 327 4 speed - local guy (74 Camaro guy in other photo) still has it under resto
Real 72 Chevelle SS 402 4 speed
1963 Falcon Sprint running a 289 4 speed
74 Camaro LT running a 350 4 speed - love the snorkel scoop!
71? Camaro LT running a 400 small block 4 speed - was the fastest street car around
My brothers 69 Camaro SS 350 4 speed
69 Mach 1 351W 4 speed
