General Discussion / Drive on Track Day 2019
« on: January 13, 2019, 07:43:25 AM »
Today was the laps for charity at the local "Sonoma Raceway". As last year, I paid the $150 and got a few laps on the main track and a couple on the Nascar track. Had a little trouble keeping up {NOT kidding} with original brakes/shocks/and new bias ply tires. A little sideways in several places on the track and plenty of 4 wheel drift. They had me with a new corvette, Miata's and other modern sports cars. Got up to 90 MPH! At one point I was sideways at turn 2 and looked down and I was going 50MPH  :o  I asked to be last for a reason. A lot faster this year. Last year I was with the pack and backed off on purpose so I could jump on it at the stands. This year, not the case, no need to hang back. I couldn't keep up. Good Times  ;D   Danny

General Discussion / How to pack a battery for shipment
« on: December 21, 2018, 08:08:45 PM »
This is valuable info that aligns itself with our hobby.
 I have received several Chevrolet batteries the last 4 or 5 years by mail that have been damaged beyond repair. All of them were unusable. Some in boxes with virtually NO packing came broken in pieces. Since I have the common sense of several men... I thought I would post a few pictures on what I consider the proper way to package a battery for shipment. I have sent out 10 batteries this way, ALL arrived in perfect condition. Ask Chick and Dave how their Y55's arrived from 2,650 miles away. I also sent 13 THOUSAND dollars in toys to a collector in Texas. ALL arrived in perfect shape. 40 years of shipping, NO damage claims... Danny

General Discussion / '67 Big Block Camaro
« on: December 20, 2018, 03:36:41 AM »
I have a friend who is flying out to Oklahoma next week to look at a car for sale. It is a '67 Camaro SS big block 4-speed convertible. It has a '69 396 in it, and he knows it is NOT numbers matching. His concern is... how does he tell if the car ORIGINALLY was a big block car to begin with from the factory? I am trying to get the VIN and maybe a pic of the cowl tag. But is there a list of things he can look at straight away to distinguish?... Danny

General Discussion / MCACN ? Who's going?
« on: November 13, 2018, 01:41:20 AM »
Who is going to MCACN? I have BEEN DOWN FOR THE COUNT for 19 days with dangerous tooth extraction/infection. SOOOO painful and frustrating. I lost THOUSANDS of dollars in work. Was just told today 4pm that I might not be able to fly  :(  >:(    I have one last check-up on Wednesday at 4pm. This will determine if I fly out Thursday at 2pm. I guess it's not good to fly with tooth/mouth issues? Always something I guess. HEY.. I called Charlie { Hubleyman} yesterday to see if he would want to take my place. He is TOO busy. Maybe I can transfer my flight and hotel to a member. I'll call American Airlines Tom. I will try to post Wed. Wish me luck! Danny

General Discussion / Huggar Orange '69 Z/28 Low Miles

This is for all the HO paint guys!! JUST found out this car was for sale. Car is about 30 minutes from me. Guy's name is Jeff. I met him a while back at a Cars & Coffee. He had Jerry M inspect it about 9 years ago. He really took the time to make this car right and correct just about EVERY issue Jerry noted. I am going down to see it hopefully Saturday. Danny

General Discussion / WOW! A 125K "68 Z/28
« on: October 26, 2018, 03:32:07 AM »
This car is very nice. $125 THOUSAND dollars nice? I wish they would show block casting date and Trans Production #'s and VIN. And while you're at it, toss in all numbers on Rear Axle. For that kind of money ya better show me the goods! Looks like it has replacement shocks. Anybody know this car ? Danny

General Discussion / VERY interesting Garage Find Today, NOT a Camaro
« on: September 26, 2018, 05:56:56 AM »
I tried to post on the Yenko site and couldn't make it happen. It said all kinds of things about security codes and ??? Couldn't load any pictures. So was hoping someone could jump this over there for me? If this is taking up space, go ahead and delete it. Either way, I need some expert advice on this car to start.

   Took a ride this morning to go look at a house that needs a complete re-plumb. I think the house is dated about 1949. The owner and I talked about cars at a recent car show, that's where I gave him my bus card. In a garage nearby was a 1963 Chevrolet Fuel Injected Split Window Corvette Z06 Hardtop! I think it is one of 195. I guess they made 4 convertibles? He gave me SO Much info I couldn't keep up. 4 Plastic spacers under hood, some cars have 1 or 2 or 3 or NONE. Do the tags and stamps look good? Those round rivets look suspect? And how do I tell if it is a REAL Z06 Fuelie. Rare double line master cylinder. 55,000 original miles. He bought it  just a few years after '63. Car has a later 327 installed. Original engine ??? on stand next to car.  There are other cars including a 1968 Corvette Bronze RS Z/28! Due to privacy I have blocked out a lot of the info. But there is enough to get started. Thanx for your time... Danny

General Discussion / One Owner '69 Z/28
« on: September 03, 2018, 11:49:49 PM »
My friend wanted me to fly with him to Texas to look at this car. I asked for important pictures FIRST. Got them today. Looks like a restamp trans. You can see an old 3 and other things from the original stamp. Block date in relation to car build?? I don't think we are flying down there. Too bad, was a cool story.. Danny


General Discussion / '68 Camaro Z/28 on eBay
« on: August 16, 2018, 06:00:06 PM »
I was burned out of purchasing this car just a few days ago by a guy named Chris. I talked to Chris for 56 minutes and taped the conversation. Anytime I talk serious issues that involve large sums of money I tape the call. So the agreement was I was going to sleep on it and call him at 7am the following morning. He was to wait for my call and he agreed to that... I listened to the whole 56 minutes again to make sure I wasn't losing my mind. I do some research on the car and find out that it was for sale on the Yenko site 4 years ago so, and I ALMOST bought it. The guy that had it for sale on Yenko was Kelly. I find Kelly's number and call him and we chat for a while. He had the car for 20 years. I told him I am going to buy it. He said he really wanted to buy it back some day. And that the agreement with Chris, he was to call Kelly if he ever wanted to sell it, to give Kelly the right of first refusal. I ended up purchasing the Butternut Yellow car instead. The next morning I called the owner back to tell him I will pull the trigger for 31K or 33K which was the asking price and he said I just took a deposit for the car. I said I thought you were going to wait for me like we agreed. His answer was if the deal falls through I'll get back to ya. No reason to get into an argument about it, it was done.
 The next day I get a call from Kelly telling me has a loan ready to go and was I really set on keeping the car. Or he said if you don't buy it, can I call Chris. He wanted to do the right thing and call me FIRST and not call Chris. And would I sell it to him. I told him the story, and that I DID NOT get the car. Fast forward a few days I talk to a guy who tells me his friend Bob from Camaro Specialties has a '68 for sale. I call Bob a couple days ago and we chat about the car. Today I check eBay and the car is for sale. I look at the seller and it's Camaro Specialties. It ended up being the same car. Bob was the one who got the car. So I just got off the phone with Bob 10 minutes ago and we chatted about it and laughed. Of course not Bobs fault in any way. I didn't purchase it the first time cause it had no POP or paperwork. And inspection from anyone. Chris bought the car from Kelly and had it inspected by Jerry M. But I didn't know it was the same car.  Funny how it all comes around. I almost bought this car TWICE!!

I thought I asked about this distributor years ago, but was unable to find it in a search. Going to sell this and would like to know what it fits. It is a Chevy unit that was converted to a electronic box ignition. Thanx... Danny

Take a look at this car. I have a friend looking at it to possibly purchase. It's up the road a piece from me. But before I go look, would like opinions on cowl tag, stamp etc.  Danny


General Discussion / Car For Sale
« on: July 16, 2018, 12:52:40 AM »
Had a chance to look over a car for sale today at a car show. Wanted to see if I could get some opinions on value. I didn't have my camera with me and my flip phone sucks. Need to upgrade.
It is a 1967 Camaro Red in color. LOS car 327 210 HP base coupe with no options really to speak of... Motor and trans never touched, still has dust layer under the hood. 2 speed on the column. Has Owner protection warranty booklet with POP. Second owner purchased the car 4 or 5 years ago out of CA. The paint is spectacular with the double white pinstripe on the sides front to back. It is beginning to get a little tired in some places, but you have to look for it. It has not been polished and shows very well with no rot or damage I could see. Always garaged by en elderly couple who purchased it new and by the second owner. Interior is perfect or very close to it in black standard. Radio does not work. Antenna is in the right rear and looks like it was added? And not GM. Someone added a handle pull above the glove box and two small ones on the doors. Besides that the interior really looks great. Trunk is also in very nice condition with original jack sticker. No Posi sticker. Spare and jack are there. Glove box is lighted and has a very nice tire sticker on door. Seems to run good. Second owner never drives it, says he hasn't even changed the oil since he's owned it. Never wrecked as far as I can see. Quarters are factory stamped. Didn't see if the fenders had markings. It really is ALL there with original smog complete, coil, carb, everything but the water pump has been replaced. He thinks he still has the original. Owner is very cool and I have known him over the years through the car show circuit. Car would need a complete service front to back, hoses, fluids, tune-up, rear axle oil, trans service etc. etc. Brakes have been replaced. Cause the car sat for years in the original owners garage in Castro Valley, CA, and they got stuck.
NOW, the BIGGEST bonus of all, and really the only reason why I am looking at it is... The mileage is 14,000!!   Wish it was an RS, 4-speed, 295 HP convertible :D I may call him and go take a few pictures. With that said, and the info above. What is the current market value if ya had to guess?.. Danny
