Different times entirely, especially when it comes to college football. I do not remember seeing that car but in those much younger days, I was really only concerned with and paying attention to Chevy's and especially Camaro's. I do remember a big Block 69 around campus and a 69 Z/28 that had an Endura bumper on it that I wanted badly.

Small world! I graduated in mechanical engineering back in 2016 and football sure is an entirely different game now.

As for back then, my father drove the AAR for a year or so, then drove a dark blue lifted 4x4 '74 Camaro Z28 for a couple years haha. He sold that and bought a '71 SS 454 Chevelle and drove until he graduated. Somewhere along the line he also had a red '69 Coronet R/T 440. I have pictures of that Camaro and the Coronet if you're interested, I'm sure the Camaro was hard to miss!

Yes sir, I believe he even still has the build sheet for that car. It was a red car with black stripes and black interior. He bought it in KC and sold it in South Carolina a few years later.

72heavychevy, The Chevelle I sold was also red with black stripes and black interior, LS5 4-spd. Wonder if it was the same car as I'm in KC? The car I sold was all stock with the original wheels and a cowl induction hood. The car was loaded with options and even had a power drivers bucket seat. I have pictures of it somewhere. At the time I sold it I was 18 and also had a 70SS LS5 and a 69SS L78. I sure miss those days.

Wow, small world! I'll have to ask him about all the options, but the car was running stock SS wheels and did have a cowl induction hood. He always said that's one car he wish he didn't let go! If you find pictures I'd love to see them

Great looking car. Congrats on finding the owner. Very hard to do these days.

You might find this an interesting watch:

"I have pictures of that Camaro and the Coronet if you're interested, I'm sure the Camaro was hard to miss!"

Oh certainly post some pictures. That is always good and I don't care if I have a connection or not, older photos will always have my attention. The other problem I have to bring up is that at the age I am, I am surprised at how much from my past have vanished from my memory and maybe a photo will bring some of that back.

Here you go!

'Real '74 Z28 Type LT 4-speed, he bought it already stuck on top of a Blazer frame. Car was midnight blue and he drove it up at K-State for a couple years.


'69 Coronet R/T 440. I don't recall if this was a 6-pack car or not, I'll have to ask him. Eventually sold this car to get the sublime AAR if I remember right. However he's still got the original Direct Connection license plate hanging on the garage wall!

Lovely Coronet! Wow. Only A12 Super Bees and Roadrunners received the 6bbl/Six-Pack option in 1969. If your Dad's Coronet had a six-pack set-up it was added by an owner.

While I can't say that I remember seeing that 74 Z/28 4x4, it's extremely distinctive that I almost had to have seen it. Manhattan KS certainly isn't that large of a town today and was much smaller back then so I can't see how I could have even avoided seeing that back then. I don't know, maybe I spent too much time in Aggieville. There was a fad by some to create strange 4x4 vehicles but I would wish that Camaro could have stayed more true to its roots. But too each, his own.
