Looked like a great variety of 69s.

This gathering was awesome. I was there Saturday and Sunday and spent more time looking at the Camaros than I did the other 5,000+ cars there. I prefer the original cars to the Pro Touring cars, but they were all spectacular. The rarest car there was probably the L89 convertible. I looked at it a little bit on Saturday and went back to look at it on Sunday and it was gone. Where there really only 11 built or is that an unsubstantiated number? I know of a couple Pace Cars and Kevin's blue car but I have never seen this green car before. Does anybody know anything about it?

No one knows how many '69 Camaro L78/L89 converts were built. The data Chevrolet provided for the Tailfins & Bowties book circa 1989 showed 311 L89 equipped Camaros; that's as good as it gets.

The car at the show would have to have it's original VIN-stamped engine and/or bullet-proof docs to be considered legitimate.

Too dark to tell if there was a engine pad stamping.

I think the last fifty years of changes to the auto industry has led both sides to realize that they are in it together, or somebody else will take their place. Much as I do not like it, it's a competitive world, and only the best competitors will survive.
