What RG68GTO said...

To this day, Norwalk is a premier track, 42 is all new, and from what I here is having problems keeping up with the turnout. Thompson is a wonderful time piece. National Trails not so good I hear, but still active. Youngstown used to have a track, still may? Milan just over the boarder in Michigan,,,, PA. Jenkins-Strickler. Any theories why Z sales shot up in 69?

Companys just south of Cleveland: Harland Sharp, Hurst, Mr. Gasket,Lakewood.

Gasser wars was just cooling off: Ohio George,,,Jeg Coughlin. Summit was started with a guy selling parts out of his garage to his other buddies with vettes.

 Young guys with money, I believe Mr. Yenko saw the perfect storm for this area.

Good for you Gary. By the sounds of it, all the right life choices were made early: solid marriage, solid career,,financial planning. I like what I do and will be retiring in eight years, just shy of 60. Gotta build that Ash Gold, ( or Sea Foam)68 "stocker"before I do,lol. Been dragging the heels with this Z too long, buttoning it up this winter.

Can't "buy it now"

Enter PRIMOSALE at checkout: coupons,etc...
Just did an impulse buy, really didnt need it, early date,
but for the price will look good under the hood.

You are right there, def one to do. Sort of struck me as a next level show. But then I went I think cut off was 1970. Tmes may have changed. Also , by no means was the Z considered a " street rod"

You should check it out next year.

They also grouped us.

Whew, too many people for me. Blue Suede had around 5500 two years ago. We were pit side running the Anglia, not so bad. Worse ever was Pinks at Norwalk. Pinned to your trailor. But man, what a great time! When I did Good Guys Bill, it was very organized. Unloaded the Z in the lot next to the fairgrounds and just drove in. It was like a parade, spectators were alowd in after the cars were in place. Uncorked the headers to bring it in. Capped them to cruise at night. Good times.

We did Goodguys in 98 and stayed in Dublin. As did anybody else that could book a room. Massive overflow of cars. I assume the Arthritis show is a fundraiser? And Goodguys is a three day event, pulling in Thursday night. Hit that Friday and Sunday with a good cause on Saturday makes for a nice weekend. I'd tote it down there again for that.
Your Z's looking good.

Kit from steele products is .08" thickness, texture looks about the same as my posted piece. Again, that measured .13". So acording to Hans, roughly half of the material by the firewall. Which is what his oe's spec'd.

Hey, thanks Hans. About right on 2x difference. Piece I posted is very repairable, and should clean up nice for use. Great heads up.
