72LT1Steve said:Well everyone. I attended my first Corvette only car show of the season yesterday. Had a great time! I was very pleased to view (and have park next to me) a fully restored, 99.9 point Corvette Restorers Society documented '72 ZR-1 Targa Blue coupe! I met the owner, Joel (who eventually won 1st place for the class....no surprise) and spoke to him about the car. He told me that 13 of the 14 coupes have been accounted for.
I mentioned to him "qdh's" discovery of his CKZ engine suffix on his recently purchased '72 LT-1 Convert. Joel was excited and told me (qdh are you reading??) that "no '72 ZR-1 convertibles have been found/accounted for/documented". He guessed that a fully restored ZR-1 Convert would sell well into the 6 figures.
What do you all think? Is Joel correct in his guess? I thought so.

Having a DZ302 I've heard that song many times.
I envy all of you that own and drive your LT-1's
Make sure your machine shop doesn't do anything to your block to mess up those numbers.
I've heard horror stories about rare(read big money) motors dissappearing from machine shops.

I'll log in my 2 cents as well. I love the car.
I truly enjoy the attention I get at cruises and shows, they get a treat seeing a pretty rare vette and I enjoy talking and learning more about my car. I plan on taking it to Carlise PA this year. I was picked to represent the 1970 convt in this years evolution display. They expect over 100 vettes in this display celebrating the 50th birthday of the American icon. If anyone is interested, there are a few spots ( 9 ) left to fill, you can e-mail Joe Clemente at MR35TH@aol.com
