Thanks for all the kind words!! Grand Forks had an Air Force Base (still does, I think) back then. That's probably how my car got there. Its possible a soldier brought it from out West to Grand Forks?? I was pretty surprised that the floors, trunk, frame rails, drop offs were not rusty at all. It got more rust from sitting after I had than anything else. So I had this feeling it was from out west. I guess my paper trail died at about 1976 and I cant get ahold of that guy at all.
Actually my paperwork said it was Reno, Nebraska. There is no Reno Nebraska (I did check).
I never got to meet the guy I bought it from, but I did find him and his phone number. I called him last year and his wife answered. She was so rude and basically told me not to call back. I found the other guy he bought it from on Facebook and have left messages for him but no answers. Kind of disappointed and left a bad taste in my mouth. I thought the guy would be excited to hear about his old car, but the lady was very defensive and short. Oh well. I also thought about mailing him pictures and a letter asking him if wanted to call me he could.

Grand Forks still has their Air Base, but the mission has changed from bombers to drones. The population has been reduced from about 8,000 to about 3,000 currently.

A lot of muscle cars came and went because of the airmen assigned to the GFAFB.

Rydell Chevrolet was, and is, a high performance dealer. They were not part of the Yenko network, but they sold a lot of special high performance Chevrolet muscle cars. The owner today has a "toy shop" and they build high dollar street rods on the dealership site. They have many dealerships around the country and the one in Waterloo, IA was, or is, owned by his younger brother.

The owner has been part of several NHRA drag teams and the have won the Spring Nationals around 1970 and they won the Indy Nationals in the early 90s.

One of the neat cars that I remember was a good friend and customer of the current owner ordered a 68 Corvette bronze 427/390 hp vette. Shortly after delivery they dropped in a blue printed L-88 and they went NHRA drag racing in the old A/Sports class. They were in the NHRA finals at Brainerd where they lost to Warren Johnson in his 38 Chevrolet A/MP coupe. The same owner of the vette had ordered a 66 SS396 Chevelle and they dropped in a 427/425 engine shortly after taking delivery of it and went racing.

They moved to the current site in 1965 and they recently built a new building on the same site. I checked with them back in the early 80s and the old records have been discarded.

You have a very nice 69 and I hope you can figure out the puzzle. One nice thing is that back at that time North Dakota did not use salt on their roads.

My first '69 Camaro was Azure Turquoise /Black vinyl/Black std. I was 17 making car payments as a Junior in private high school. All my buddies were sons of doctors, lawyers, business owners; my Dad was a car man.
Very rare color, and YES, your car is beautiful.

I wish I had my first '69 Camaro from 1980 when I was 18 also, wrapped that one around a tree. </div></div>

This one Mark?

I saw the 500's and wondered the exact same thing too.
Super cool car @ 18, other than broken heart I hope everyone was Ok!
Was it already For Sale or just sign added after accident?

Where's the license plate? Looks like a sprinkler going off underneath as well!
