You ever feel like you’ve done something awesome before you have really done it?

My ’68 Z28 has been talking to me and I’ve been listening. For two years now, I have been taunted by a Camaro Z28.

$12K got me a solid, rust-free body, 302 motor, 4-spd, primer grey, black seats great condition and 28,647 on odometer.

I was surprised to find out that these were the original miles made by the well-known artist we all love and remember as Jim Morrison of the Doors. Little did I know that I was not the only one to realize this. Just as I made the decision to purchase this automobile, a woman offered me $35,000 for the car.

Remember, I purchased this car for $12K.

I took the money.

I found another ’68 Z28 in pieces, again for $12K. No rust, etc., 27,466 original miles and it, too, is in a primer grey. Here we go again!
