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.

I can't believe you posted a picture of a beige '79 Z-28.  I saw one once in the service bay circ 1979 at Zayre's in Hanover Massachusetts and loved it.  I have never seen another one.  I think it's a great combo.  Thanks for sharing!

No, not the bird... it looks lik a chrome metal strip on the rear side of the door window. it looks like the window fits inside of it. I don't see it on any other ta's....

na mate not a surprise at all,as ive told a couple people before,TA's in general are rare over here and even the fugly ones get lots of photos taken
How rare do you ask?....went to  Hanging Rock car show on the weekend which is the biggest here in Victoria,out of 3000 classics that turned up you had 5 TA's and a similar number of Firebirds
