    Original Log Book shows up for UK barn find Yenko Camaro

    This is the car that was found in storage with a 427 Galaxie... the guy must've been a serious speed freak importing a 2 year old Yenko Camaro

    Most of us know whose name is crossed out on the Log Book.

    Rog.

    I don't know where the car is now Rog , I assume it must have been sold because all the for sale ads went quiet . It'll probably turn up at the Super Car Reunion fully restored

    Some cool info on this thread about when the car was featured in the Oct 72 issue of Hot Car magazine

    Haven't heard a peep on the Galaxie in months Steve .

    Can you clarify. The petrol ration book doesn't seem to fit this situation? I thought rationing went out in the 50's.......

    Petrol rationing was reintroduced in 73 but never enforced , was a government knee jerk reaction to the 3 day week and huge price increase in the cost of crude oil .
