About “Black Betty”

In 1973 the Type LT replaced the SS option and added many new options to the Camaro line, such as factory A/C for the first time and power windows for the first time in the second gen production line. I've owned this for a few years and done some myself, with friends and paid for the rest. I try to maintain a stock look, and do a few shows from time to time. In the coming summer I will run it down the track a time or two and get my 0-60, and 1/4 mile times.

If you can provide documentation on how many LT Z28 RS optioned Camaros were produced in '73 I would like to hear from you.

About “73 Z28”

I've had this car for about 12 years now. It has been restored from the ground up twice. The car was finished once and i wasn't satisfied so I pretty much started from the ground up again. The second restoration was completed in 2001. All the work on the car has been done by me with a little help from family and friends which I greatly appreiciated. Even though the car is complete I still end up changing things or trying to make things better i guess thats thats a car guy thing.
