The single most unique and valuable car in this collection is the 1969 Z28 Camaro JL8.  What is special about this car is the JL8 code was a four wheel disc brake option you could order from the factory.  They only built 206 of these cars so it is a very rare car.  Because most of the SCCA Trans Am racers bought these cars and raced them, a lot of them got destroyed, bent or modified and disappeared throughout time.  So there are not very many of them out there.  It's got its original burgendy color with white stripes.

It's a beautiful build.  It has matching numbers transmission and rear end.  It doesn't have a numbers matching engine because the engine had an oil pressure problem with the original owner, so he took it back to the original dealer in Boise, Idaho. That dealer then replaced the engine out of that car and we have that document.  There is no serial number on the engine, they just replaced it in those days and threw the original one back in the rock pile behind the dealership.
