This is where first driver Johnny Moore sat

Camaro historian John Mello stumbled across the holy grail while looking at a local Camaro for sale for a friend. Noticing a few clues of a previous life, he bought the car and upon removing the paint, he discovered racing stripes and lettering from days gone by. He began researching period race cars and ran across a photo from 1967 of a former racer Johnny Moore climbing into what appeared to be the same car! He found the old driver and confirmed it was indeed his car from 1967. The VIN number confirmed it was manufactured on December 29th, 1966, a day before other models were made. The first Z/28 ever made! John decided to restore the car to its glory day as a tribute to its racing heritage roots.
