Nice '79 Zs!

I still own my red one that I bought new on Oct 23, 1979. It was one of the last '79s built (August '79.) It had some of the '80 updates, but was still a '79. It got the newer ball joints and dull finish chrome (the black didn't chip off.)

I need to restore the car someday, as it needs some rust repair and fresh paint.

Good luck with all of yours!

Tara
