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

Is this car the real deal, or is it a restamp machine of deception? My friend found this on eBay and is intrigued. I am, of course, skeptical. Having just a couple letters with NO other documentation would make me nervous. Date Base Car??... Danny

General Discussion / Battery Restoration Company?
« on: June 15, 2018, 06:24:35 PM »
Who do we know that can restore an AC Delco Y55. I know they say to drain the battery, die cut the bottom off, strip the battery guts, install a Chevy Monza battery, glue bottom back on.. Is there a company that does this?.. Danny

Nice car.. Any info on it in the DB? Cowl tag rivets look like they have been removed? Pad stamp ALL over the road up/down/sideways.  :o  Looks like it was done one letter/digit at a time? Danny


General Discussion / Is this a Z/28 Shifter
« on: June 12, 2018, 05:43:19 AM »
I was told this was a'67 Z/28 shifter, or just a 4 speed shifter. I can't find any numbers on it anywhere. Couple of stamps on the shift rods themselves. Has the word Muncie stamped in it... small thread size for shift ball, a very large stamped " T "  Seems to be in very nice original condition. Even has the orange grease holder cap. Or at least that's what I call it. Need to get a value on it for sale purposes. Have someone interested, but don't know what to charge.. $500? Thanx... Danny

General Discussion / Trans Shifting Issue
« on: May 27, 2018, 09:39:05 PM »
Decided to change trans fluid and put in "Amsoil Synthetic Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube"  SAE 75W-90  API GL-4.
Seem to work ok for a while then after a couple hundred miles it starts acting weird. Let me try to explain this correctly. Trans is Muncie M21.

 SO, with the car warmed up, push in the clutch and it won't go in to first without EXCESSIVE pressure. Push like hell two or three times and it goes. This happens for 2nd gear also...Then out driving when you come up to a stop sign and begin downshifting, it falls in to 3rd, 2nd, and even 1st like butter! But ONLY if the car is moving!! Once you come to a complete stop, and it's a 6 way signal so ya throw it in neutral for the wait.. light turns green, push the clutch in, won't go in to 1st. However if the car is rolling even ONE mile an hour while down shifting, it drops right in to first gear. Now, once you GET it in to 1st while keeping the clutch depressed, it goes in and out no problem. Throw it back in neutral and let the clutch out, push it back in, won't go in to first. Read this twice before ya reply... ha ha  Linkage and clutch adjusted perfectly. If it wasn't it would bind all the time? Could it be the synthetic oil? Would like opinions before I change it out.  Danny

General Discussion / Holley Carb Leak?
« on: May 07, 2018, 03:02:30 AM »
Holley 4053 Carb is leaking fuel out of the secondary shaft on BOTH sides. This is a 780 Vacuum secondary. Carb was just rebuilt 200 miles ago. Car will not start without starting fluid, seems flooded out, then when it starts, the leaks stop. Turn off the car and the leak starts again???. WTF!! WAS running great until this morning. Pulled both bowls and cleaned the needle and seat, no change... Danny
