General Discussion / Holly Sheep Poop Batman, I am going to MCACN!!
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:28:04 AM »
My girlfriend bought me a first class ticket to MCACN non-stop both ways. It's my Birthday/Christmas present. Can't wait, SO excited! Can't wait to see all the wonderful cars. And the gang, Charley, Bob, Steve, Chick, Jon, Skip, Lonny... the whole gang! Just bought 2 new 32GB San Disks. Going to try to get some great video and pic's. Imagine 10 or 15 '67 Z/28's all in ONE spot! Did I mention I am excited. Danny

General Discussion / Z/28 Tire sticker on top of ANOTHER tire sticker
« on: September 03, 2017, 07:47:42 AM »
1968 Camaro Z/28. Rare color, nice car. Never seen a double glove box tire sticker. 2nd sticker has a way different font? Cowl Tag look ok?

I have been reading some of JM reports over the years and noticed on some that it says firebird door handles on a certification of a Camaro. Could someone please post pic's and a description of the differences. I would like to learn how to distinguish between the two. Thanx.. Danny

I can't remember if I asked this once before. But does anybody know what the  CA GM dealership is for number 1566? .. D

General Discussion / Fuel Line length 1968 Z/28
« on: November 05, 2015, 04:12:01 PM »
Was there a standard length for the rubber fuel line at the pump in '68? The half circle piece from the rigid line down to the pump. Or did they just cut it any length and go for it? Danny

General Discussion / Brake line sizes in Calipers two different sizes?
« on: October 19, 2015, 03:56:41 PM »
I went to install my original calipers last night and the left side caliper line is larger. The line I got with the repro calipers fell inside of it. Is that correct factory? Before I sent them back to White Post, I center punched small marks on them, so I would know I received mine back. The marks are there, what's the deal?... The right side is smaller and fits the original caliper...Danny

General Discussion / Seen Jon Mello '67 Z/28 today!
« on: October 16, 2015, 07:50:05 AM »
Took a 4 day trip down to Santa Barbara to pick up a nice little used Lincoln SP100 welder from a C.L. ad. Met a guy who's friend is Dave, and has a Cortez Silver '69 Z/28. I mentioned he should get his car inspected and certified by Jerry M. He said why would I do that when I have my friend Jon. He has the first Z/28 ever made. And we used to work at McDonalds together MANY years ago. I emailed Jon Mello and he said that is indeed his buddy. He also mentioned that the '67 Z/28 was at Sunset Chevrolet Dealership. SO.. we decided to take a trip over on our way back home. COOL as hell to see the car! Wish I could have gotten better pictures, but hard to do in the dealership lighting etc. etc. And no engine pic's, as the hood was pinned closed. But I will hopefully see it at the MCACN. Pretty nice treat nonetheless. I wasn't expecting to see a Z/28 on this trip, more less the FIRST one ever made..  ;D ;D D

General Discussion / Fire at Girlfriends where Z/28 is stored
« on: October 07, 2015, 02:48:37 AM »
Girlfriends house caught on fire on the side of the garage where the Camaro is stored!! Holy Crap I thought I was going to have a heart attack. The gas meter melted and was like a flame thrower right thru to my original DF rally's. They held back the fire while I got my work truck moved. Then could NOT see the Camaro from the smoke. I closed my eyes and held my breath and went into the garage. Found the door handle. Fired it up and backed it out blind! It is covered in ash, inside and out. But it made it thru... More later ... D

General Discussion / 10 10 Paint Coded Z/28
« on: October 04, 2015, 05:07:35 AM »
Rare color as we all know. I wonder if it is all legit. Looks like the car revolver from that RK place. The people that REFUSE to post pictures of pertinent info. Never seen a cowl tag so BURIED with paint/goop. Can't even make out the numbers/lettering. Might be hiding something? Is this car in the DB ?.. Danny

Getting ready to install Good Year Wide Tread GT's on my original Rally Wheels. Want to use the "MICRO" weights I have collected. How were they oriented? Inside, outside, both? If they hit the trim ring clips, did they switch to the inside, or just spin the tire a few inches and re-balance?.. Danny

General Discussion / Holley Accelerator Pump Tool
« on: September 28, 2015, 06:33:34 PM »
Where can I get that special tip tool to remove the accelerator pump screws on my 4150 Holley carb? I looked everywhere online. Anybody have a part number. I could switch it out to a Phillip's head, but trying to keep it as stock...Can't find it on Amazon, eBay, or even a google search... WTF... D

General Discussion / '68 Corvette Bronze Z/28
« on: September 24, 2015, 07:59:19 PM »
My friend bought this car brand new from our local Chevrolet dealership. These pictures are approx. 10 months after purchase.
Wrong air filter with no 302 sticker ?? Or just no sticker ??
Alternator bracket mounted back side ??... Says he didn't change it.
Extra long battery ground cable ??Or at least longer than mine and many I have seen. 
Booster plating ?? Looks pretty plain.. or is it plane?
Trying to get the VIN...
Is this car already in the data base by the license plate number?? ..  Danny

General Discussion / 1968 CamaroZ/28 Paint Code KK
« on: August 29, 2015, 01:50:49 AM »
Check this one out. If you don't know the difference between Vinyl and leather I think I will pass. What ELSE is wrong. Cowl tag rivets look suspect? Pad stamp ?? Pretty cool that it is the same owner since 1972..D
