General Discussion / Stolen car and trailer in Texas
« on: November 06, 2013, 01:55:17 PM »
This post was picked up from another site.  I know Carl Battis, the owner, personally and can vouch for the fact that his car, his support equipment equipment, tools, and trailer were top-notch in preparation and appearance.  The car was setup for Stock Eliminator therefore the drive train components are typical to other competitive Stockers.  The drive train was an L78 configuration with an automatic transmission.  Carl and the rest of the Stock Eliminator community would be greatly appreciative of any leads.  Please be extra watchful at any swap meets and/or for Craig's List items that might be a part of this car.

This morning (11/3/13) at about 7:30 my 28' Vintage Outlaw trailer with my 1969 Camaro - Silver B/SA were stolen in Arlington Texas. A reward will be given to anybody with any information or details which leads to the recovery of the trailer and car.

The trailer had a NH plate - T 354028

The car is Cortez Silver and currently has no stickers on it.

I can be reached via email at

Cell # is 714-858-1215

Thanks -

Carl Battis

General Discussion / Any thoughts on this '69?

Received via e-mail in response to an ad in the L.A. Times.  VIN#124379L512578  Body tag#VN293802:

"This is not a Clone, it is a real SS. The car is in excellent working order, it has a clear and free title and the numbers match. The car was garage kept, has no mechanical problems and it is in perfect condition. The car was in California from 1969 to 2003, that's when the first owner sold it to the second owner, I'm the third owner. Description: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro numbers matching RS/SS 396 325hp, 31,243 miles, Transmission: Automatic. 325hp 396 starts, runs and accelerates perfectly. The California emission equipment is still in-place. The turbo-400 transmission shifts like new including kick-down into passing gear and the 12-bolt POSI rear end is quiet. Equipped with power DISC brakes. The car is all original but it was painted once. Look at the pics, I uploaded some documents from the first owner, cowl tag #, VIN# and some other numbers, even the plates from the first owner. Click this link to see pics: <> the car in the pictures is the one I'm selling you and that's the car's condition right now, the pics were made 5 days ago. I have driven this car almost daily (nice weather) for the last couple of months and it has been 100% dependable. I offer free shipping for the first 500 miles and low shipping fees for the extra miles. Send me your zip code for shipping fees and details.

It's nice to have the board working again.   After more than 10 years of access, the withdrawals were becoming fairly severe.  Does anyone have an theory on why I can log in to the message board using one browser and yet, another browser on the same machine comes up with a rejection notice using the same log-in and password?

Thanks for the insight.

Within the past few days the following post appeared on a drag racing forum.  The forum is frequented by a group of occasionally rowdy but essentially serious Stock Eliminator racers so I believe that it is probably valid.  I have no personal knowledge of the identity of the poster or the information but I thought it might be possible that someone here would be interested.  Rather see it picked up and put to use by a Camaro person than thrown up for grabs on Ebay.

Hope the information is useful to someone.

Good luck.


"Just found out my 69 vette has a 68 camaro 302 rather than the 350/350 motor. Would this motor be of interest to anyone?

I was told it ran like a raped ape before the vette was parked in a garage in 77. So after 29 years the owner needed to sell his house and the car needed to go. He said it was wrecked twice, once when he owned it, and once before. He is not at all mechancially inclined so he has no idea when or how that engine was installed.

So.... I have no idea of the mileage, but it had to be put in the vette before 75, and the vette is showing 57k. But no idea how many miles the camaro had on it, where it is now or anything.

VO312MO and 18N403*** are the numbers.

Anyone know how to see if the camaro is on the road? or crushed?
