My 16yr old son just picked up a 1979 Z28 for dirt cheap. The car is a diamond in the rough. the body is straight no rust that I saw and no dents. The paint is beyond rough, it is mostly faded and will defiantly need a paint job in the very near future. The interior is also a little on the rough side but still usable. We figured out that is gonna need a tune up and some fresh gas as it has been sitting for 14 yrs. It will need lots of other work. So I look forward to learning more with my son from you guys here. So now a short history about this particular Z28. I purchased the car from the original owner in 1994 after he parked it when the fuel pump went out in it as he didn't want to fix it. Over a period of 6 months he asked me several times if I wanted to buy it. He started out at like $1800 over the 6 months he dropped the price several times until he got to $500. I said ok I will buy it. so fixed fuel pump, and changed the oil and did some other things. I did some other repairs over the years when I could as time and money was short. I then purchased a different car and kept the Z28 for while and drove it once in a while. Some thing went to crap and i need money for some other things and was forced to sell the car in 2005(did not want to But had to) so i sold the car cheap to my father in-law, who then only drove it about 30 miles then parked it, and there it sat inside of an airplane hanger for the last 14 years.
