Agree with Kurt (and only saying because you asked for opinions).

If it were the ORIGINAL paint there might be a good argument for keeping it as is.   Even then, given the amount of surfacr rust, a good paint job might be in order.   Being that it is a repaint, the decision toward a good paint job is even easier.  It will preserve it much better.  JMHO, but it is moving fast beyond "patina".

WTH happened to that trim tag, other than having been removed from the car.  I know 68 tags don't give much info, and rarely get faked, but that edges have been cut off that one with shears (at least that is what it looks like) and it has definitely been off the firewall.   Aftermarket rivet (the one you can see) and not installed correctly.

General Discussion / Re: Slick size?
« on: August 19, 2017, 02:50:08 AM »
Yes, if you are using the "newer" sizing, 255 60 15 is probably it for a 69.  I had a KILLER pair of 275 60 15 Hoosiers, and they were so close to rubbing with the car sitting still, I knew they would rub as soon as I started driving it.  Broke my heart to sell them.
I have 255 60 15 on the back right now, and there are no rubbing issues.   Your stock rally wheel should work fine with that size.  255 means it is just over 10 inches wide at teh section width, not tread width.   So a 9 inch wide slick has about a 10 inch section width.   As for heighth, the 255 60 15 is 27 inches tall.  If you can find a slick in the size stated above, 28 x 9, you should still be ok.  27 x 9 would also work.

Boy, am I out of the loop.  Had no idea Lynn Yenko had been convicted of embezzling.  Sad.

That's ok. He can take better care of it than I can.

It is a kind of badge of honor in a sick twisted way, to be called one of Charley's "idiot" friends.  I have alway taken it to mean it is a true "car guy".

I have a little running joke with my four year old twin grandsons.  I ask if their daddy is a "knucklehead" and they always say "yes".  Then I ask if their Pepe' (someone who shall remain me) is a knucklehead, and they always always say "yes".   We consider it a badge of honor to be considered a knuckleheads by the "scooters" (my nickname for the twins) in the same way that an "idiot friend" is a bit of a badge of honor coming from Charley.

General Discussion / Re: I'm pretty sure this is illegal.

This Ad wasn't an attempt to repair or replace a specific car's body using the original VIN, this isn't an example of bringing a specific VIN back to life by rebodying it.

This is after-the-fact request for a VIN and title. "Need vin and title for 1969 Camaro"

I can see having a specfic VIN and attempting to rebuild that camaro, even when everything needs to be replaced. But this is the reverse of that situation. I agree and understand the first, I don't agree with the this.

You are correct.   Selling a title and vin plate from a destroyed car is illegal.

The other scenarios vary by state.  You can build a dynacorn bodied car in Oklahoma, but it gets a state issued vin.

Here you go Bryan.  At least some info.  Can't help with PN.

  http://www.camaros.net/forums/34-restoration-corner/178450-nos-vs-original-z-28-oil-pans.html

I have seen no REAL assembly line Z/28 oil pans on ebay in a while.  I see MANY of the "NOS" pans that were still available for $90 from Scoggin Dickey up until just a few years ago.

I have two assembly line pans here.   I will look for date codes, but don't remember seeing one on a pan.  Have one that needs cleaned, so maybe I can look tomorrow.

Could be all of the above.   Just know the repop set I  had for an extra 302 were all crap.  Perhaps there is a different supplier now.

I would agree.  I believe the ones I posted are NOS over the counter, but the ones on Gary's car are assembly line correct originals.

I am guessing William is talking about the repops when he says it usually chips the plastic when removing the strips.
I have removed the stainless strips from several original GM lenses, and never had an issue on those.

Sherri & I will be there.  Not taking a car.   Taking some parts for a Canadian friend, and picking up a vintage fiberglass hood.

Jon:   very disappointed I don't get to see your 67 Z.   Chick's 68 will at least partially make up for it.   Not slamming your fabulous car Chick, just something about the 67 Z, especially the first one built!
