    Just watching the Mecum 2022 Kissimmee auction and was shocked at the sale price of a beautiful 70-Z28 for $44,000. A few cars later the high bid on a 1970 AMC was $48,000. What is going on with the low prices of the 70-Z28’s!!!

    Do you have the link for it? Can't be as bad as the $15K 3rd gen that sold.

    Those auctions are famous for having straw buyers and dropping gavels early

    You really need to see the car in-person to determine condition. The seller took the reserve off, so he knew what it was worth. No mention of original engine, usually the seller will tell you if it has a numbers matching engine. Lot of other things were not correct for the car. It did look nice on TV, I will give it that. Just my opinion.

    On the Corvette site I belong to a member is posting C4's that have sold for ridiculous $$$ there. I just assumed it's the more $$$ than brains "collectors" who are hoping to do a quick flip...
    Have to agree with Doug....more than meets the eye on that 70Z....
