Well I see it says Donovan on the block, I thought since it is not a T/A engine the question was oriented toward what application.

Block stamp not close, the trans stamp, why even post a pic when you that "E" ? Does the E stand for exempt?

But could you rev it with the AC off?
Or maybe remove the extra belt if you are going to rev it up above 5k

we live in hot weather her in So Cal, and it gets hot in Indiana, where my there car is. I wouldn't do it. I guess I would just suggest a SS.

If you can afford it, I would keep looking. There are many 69  Z cars for sale out there. For the amount of money it would take to correct the issues and have a nice car you would easily be upside down on the car. You can find a nicer car that will not need to blown apart  like this car, for less than you would have into this one after having to correct all the issues.

Originality / Re: firewall chalk - how did this look originally

Very nice work James. I also thought it was interesting that the LA car did not have an emissions sticker, since California was probably one of the few states where you had to keep the smog pump on, and enforced the smog rules for years.( unless you knew a guy that could get you an illegal smog...😏)

I am guessing those seats came from another car, since the head rests are incorrect

Very cool. So about $50 a lap. I used to drag race there back in the day.

I showed the video of this car to my son, I am trying to educate him on correct Vs. incorrect. So many things to pick apart on this car, it was a great example.

To the OP, yes the tag did look original to me, but the rest of the car looked to be pieced together from other cars, along with the replacement drivetrain. So then it would be how much is an original Z worth that has been cobbed back together?

Restoration / Re: Paperwork removal
« on: January 12, 2019, 07:48:12 PM »
This may be a dumb question. But couldn't you just remove the tank from the car, empty the gasoline out, and put some kind of a diaper on the tank so you could transport it to someone who could remove the paper from the tank? it may cost more money to attempt this path, but a new gas tank is also gonna cost money. I would think a paper restoration service sees al kinds of situations and could undertake removing the sheet from the tank and keeping both intact as much as possible?

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Cross-Ram VS Ford's IR Dominators
« on: January 12, 2019, 07:25:24 AM »

BTW, It is my opinion, Chevrolet's Cross-Ram was a 'better design' out of the box, and a superior performer on the street than the Cross-Boss intake.
Lastly, do I think Hot-Rods contest was fixed? Well….magazines are advertising generated, so you can come to your own conclusions.

The cross ram may have been a better design for the track, but from everything I have read in regards to test drives from performance mags of the day, the cross ram only lived up to the hype in the higher rpm range. (and once you were already moving at a good click), and more than 1 magazine that tested it with the off road cam, said that the single 4V would outperform it.
