Rare Finds - 1969 Chevy Camaro Z/28

Skip Lecates found this Camaro the same way he found the Yenko Deuce that appeared on the cover of this magazine's Sept. '12 issue ("Mission Accomplished"), by talking with muscle heads in his area. He determined that the owner was a very private individual. Instead of knocking on his door with no invitation, Skip asked "a friend of a friend" who works with the Camaro's owner to "talk to Larry and see if I can get in to look at the car."

Skip knew asking if the car was for sale would probably get him nowhere. Larry had purchased his Z/28 brand new when he was just 16 years old. Obviously he was attached to the Z/28.

After a couple years, Skip finally got an OK to come out to Larry's house and see his Camaro. No harm would be done. Skip was a Camaro guy who just wanted to look.

This car must have stayed in the basement for most of the last 35 years.
