    Nice, fun to see when we drove what we had, no matter what the weather, and the rims look great!! And love the look with the tail lights, just to be different, working with what you had, back in the day, thanks for sharing!!

    Thanks to all for the kind words. It was a great car that we have good memories of. Sold it to a friend who still has it in essentially the same condition as pictured with the flamed paint job.....it is holding up incredibly well for 40+ year old lacquer.

    I bought my 72 Z 6 months after it came off the show room floor and never took pictures of it . I wish I had, I guess the drinking and chasing skirts took up to much of my time. I sold it after I got married, told the wife I would get another now I have a 71 SS with the big block. No drinking and no skirts

    A couple months before we got married, I gave the Z to my then-fiancée to drive, and I bought a 68 El Camino SS to drive. We quit driving the Z as an everyday car in late 1975 with about 30,000 miles on it. It had just over 40,000 on it when I sold it in 2000.

    Nice story and good pics.
    You kept the wife, too bad that you didn't keep the car.

    It was a tough decision to get rid of it, but it helped that I knew who was buying it and that it would have a good home.....which it still does. Back in March of 73, if I had been able to get the one I REALLY wanted - an RS/Z28, silver with black stripes and a 4 speed - I would still have it today. Sigh :(
