About

Good ole Zed was a fabulous ride. Picked it up for a pittance with 48k original miles. Zed needed some work though, exhaust and brakes were non existent, clutch chattered real bad, but every thing else was pretty good. Interior was nice, motor was bone stock but in bad need of a tune up and q-jet refresh. I installed Hooker comp ceramic coated headers with all T409 stainless custom bent tubing and Edelbrock Performer RPM mufflers. Sounded real nice. I rebuilt the entire brake system with all stainless lines and braided hoses, put in DOT 5 fluid. Zed could stop real nice then. So we tuned up the motor, rebuilt the original q-jet (kept that fer sure) changed the clutch put on some new skins, and drove the wheels off of it. Zed did not have the Z/28 factory stripe kit on it when we got it though, not sure where and when that went, but the SS stripes looked cool too. Well, we let Zed go because the fleet was just getting to big, and it's nice to move on to new projects. Great memories are always nice to have.
