i think brown is over looked because whenever you find a brown one, the paint is faded and not very appealling, but look how it looks with a nice new paint job... beautiful!!

agree, i love all shades of brown on a ta.  a guy stopped me at a gas station and asked why i did not paint it black, i told him that brown was the factory color and he did not believe me, tool.

I used to own a beige 79 Z28. You could only imagine the comments I got. "That could'nt have been factory", "Why did you paint it that color.", "Ewe". 


Damon23,
Beautifull Z-28, a friend back in High School circa 1982 had one exactly like yours same color tan interior with a 4 spd, I used to love that car cause of the rare color.
Was yours a 4spd, wonder if it's the same car.
Another rare color for 79 Z-28s  was that pale green, I have not seen one like yours or the green one in over 20 years.

Beautiful!!  I LOVE this color!!  I looked to buy a 77 Z last month that was this body color but the decals were orange and red and the interior was RED RED RED.  Talk about a unique combo.  LOVE OR HATE.  My 77 is this color...Light Buckskin with a Buckskin interior.  I adore it.

I saw this on the restoration projects section of the forum a while back. How's it going now?

Short answer..... it isn't going at all....  project is dead in the water waiting on a break in the work routine.  I got it running pretty good and I think it will pass inspection.  That will let me register it .  I transferred the title but in TX you have to have an inspection to register it.  Then I plan to tear into to it in a serious way....   Thanks for asking.

OK....I don't really have this photo uploading stuff figured out here.  If I want to insert a photo HERE I would need to use an image hosting site to get a URL,  is that right?  OR alternatively, post pics as attachments?  My camera isn't taking quality pics since I ran it through the washing machine a few months ago.  New camera is on "the list".    In the meantime here is a pic of my brown bird on one of the back roads around here.   Happy weekend Brown Birds!  And all Birds.   ;)

Just found the 78 I owned back in 1990. Was able to buy it back for 5K. The folks I sold it to only managed to put just about 7,000 miles on it since 1990. I put those tires on it in 1989 ish. Turns out they have been trying to get in contact with me for the last few years. Sure glad to have this gem back after all these years!!!
