VAN WERT —To some car enthusiasts, the 1969 Chevy Camaro Z28 is considered to be the most desirable Z28 of all. The 69 Z28 was one of the hottest-looking rides of the classic muscle car era, and showed what Chevy stylists could do to express performance and excitement. As Trans Am titles in 1968 and 69 showed, the Z28 was a road-racer first, a street machine second. Drivers bought 7,199 of them for '68, and sales nearly tripled for the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28, which is a record that would stand until 1978. For 1969, Chevrolet sold over 20,000 Z/28's. It is also the most popular version of the car today.
Randy Heppeard, of Van Wert, brought his 1969 Chevy Camaro Z28 to The Lima News' Real Wheels Cruise-In. He has owned it for 31 years. If he is like most 69 Chevy Camaro Z28 owners, he will most definitely hang on to this beauty. No need for history books for Heppeard, as he has a piece of history sitting in his garage today.
