Lets get control of those cars, before someone else does. After all, these cars are the ancestors to todays cars. Without them, there would be no 2010 Camaro hitting the road.
This is a Hugger Z28 that was released in 1980 at the Daytona 500 Race Track. It was released for the 24 Hours at Daytona. At that time the event was sponsored by Pepsi, now it is sponsored by Rolex.
There were only 90 cars released. Each one is numbered from 1 to 90. Of the 90 cars, 80 were made in Hugger Orange, 6 in Black, 2 in Yellow, 1 white and 1 blue.
Only 1 was a stick, and to the best of my research only 1 had a sunroof. None were prepared from the factory with t-tops, but there is 1 that had the t-tops added at the dealer, prior to delivery to the customer.
In 1981 Yenko released 9 Z28 cars. I have very little informaiton on those, but they are also very rare and very few people know about them.
Lets keep this knowledge active and circulating. I just purchased another Hugger so now I have 2. 1 in yellow and 1 in Hugger Orange. I paid way too little for this recent purchase. I have seen regular z28 cars for 1980 and 1981 selling for upwards of 40k dollars. These limited edition cars should be selling for 80-90k dollars. But nobody knows about them.
I am not complaining because I just benefited from the lack of knowledge, but, these cars deserve recognition. They are a part of the history of Camaro. Lets Honor and Celebrate their existence.
Thanks for reading.
