    Not sure, how can you tell? Its behind a fence so I didn't get up close, it does not have a vinyl top. I've met the owner of the yard about 7 years ago, he had a 1968 camaro he was willing to sell for $1500.00 but the dash was cut out of it (repairable) so not sure what he would want for this one?

    That car needs to be saved indeed. I hardly ever saw a Z in that color before.

    I beleive it was, on the right, the white car is a corvair, I'll go by and get the number and see what he wants to do with it and let everone know. He and his son use to race roundy round cars, he has a couple 78-80 camaros that are just beat to death, sad.

    The drivers window is down, and the back window is shattered, the interior is not in the best of shape. Its sad when people put a car like this in a yard and leave it to die, I know of another yard with2 early 2nd gen camaros and they are both in the same condition, I'll go by there and look at those also and get some spy shots.

    Very cool and rarely seen color. Did you learn any more about this Z28? What has happened to it? This color was '74 only but it was available on most other GM brands and models, was paint code 40 for all. Chevrolet called it 'Lime-Yellow', Buick 'Mint Green', Olds - 'Omega Green' and Pontiac 'Fernmist Green'.

    I may have seen a Nova once back in the day in that color .

    I never seen any 74 Camaro in that color ,much less a Z28.

    That might look pretty cool , New on a pristine body with Spoiler s and Decals and Z28 wheels the correct color.

    That probably is like just a few Z28 s painted that color......if that remaining I bet.
