General Discussion / red 69 Z, original, but a project on ebay
« on: July 27, 2018, 01:42:28 AM »
Well I saw in another thread a member asking about values. I did not want to clog up his thread, so I started one on this car:

I think it has a lot going for it originality wise, but is on the short side of Survivor because there is SO much patina. So it is going to need a full resto, just to save it.

Already at $35k. We will see if that is a serious bid

So I just saw this today:

Jim Gilmore special ordered Hugger Orange 84 Corvette. Supposedly 1 of 2 cars in this special paint, and only 22k miles:

(Gary this should be in your collection, right?) ;D

General Discussion / Unrestored Z/10 anyone?
« on: March 23, 2018, 04:12:02 AM »
Saw this ebay ad for a unrestored Z/10 with a black vinyl top. Thought it was pretty cool

Sad story of why he is selling it, but says he is the second owner.

At 22k so far, no reserve. Fun to watch these unrestored cars. :)

General Discussion / black 69 RS/SS Caveat Emptor?
« on: March 20, 2018, 06:54:23 PM »
So I saw this 69 Camaro on ebay, and it has been generating a lot of interest. I wasn't sure if I should piggy back onto a previous thread or not, so I started a new one.
Here is the ebay listing:

It shows a late 69 (08A) Camaro SS with a trim tag showing 10. Maybe Kurt and William have seen enough of these were it is no big deal. I don't see that many late in the year with a factory black paint job, and would like some more insight. Have black cars been documented this late in the year?

Note *The trim tag doesn't look right to me, when I compare it to others I have on file

(VIN # is not listed in the auction)

Always on the hunt, and keeping tabs on the market. With the recent craziness from the results of the recent Barret Jackson auction, I thought there are many good cars out there still.

I ran across this one the other night:

Appears to be a very straight forward SS-350 car, with a 4 speed, and P-O-P. Seller says original ZL-2 hood, which if ordered with the car is kinda rare. Great color combo, with the correct sport stripes. Has a decent amount of patina for me to like it.

Just in case anyone is looking for a nice car, this one looked like a solid car that IMO is priced right.  8)

General Discussion / A First Generation Camaro LEGACY ?
« on: January 12, 2018, 04:49:55 AM »
How much do we love our hobby? Will all first gens eventually turn into a SS or Z/28?

So with the appearance of another fake 69Z, I got to thinking:20,302 is a lot of 69 Z/28's. If it were less like 68 it would be nice to have a (smaller) registry. If each Z got inspected and then there was a national registry of known real cars, a potential buyer could then contact them, and verify a real car. I think you could still do it with the 69 Z and SS and pace cars, you would have just need to develop a database to keep track of the cars by Vin number, and trim tag. You could put notes in like Jerry M verified drive train, or Steve S inspected car at MCACN and verified original stamped components.
If this was done and could be viewed online. Would this be an easier way to curb guys passing off fakes? or maybe it would cause guys to copy known cars, so maybe pay for a document, like a rough draft MARTI report, on what is known about a car?

Seems like many of us who like to police ebay and the fake cars out there could come up with a database that could be over seen by a team of guys, and passed down to younger generations as time goes on. These cars are going to outlive us, hell some of them are coming back from the dead with re-bodies (wouldn't it be nice if we could get a re-body?  :))
I think the CRG is a great resource for many owners, but I think developing a data base for all to utilize would be a nice Legacy for us to leave behind for the Camaro owners that follow us.

I would appreciate some input from the many CRG members and administrators on this one. I may even get a poll going if enough good ideas or questions are raised .

(BTW -I think Kurt, Ed and others have done a good job of posting info on cars that are parading around as something special now, I just would like to expand this)

So I saw this ad for a 69Z on ebay, and thought ok at first, nice patina, driver type car. But the more I looked over the pics, the more I suspected this never was a Z car. Rear end is nowhere close to the right date, the shifter location looks all wrong to me, besides it is the wrong assembly unit. The last line of the auction says it has a tilt column, and made me think it may have been a shift on the column, that someone converted to floor shift.

The amazing thing is this car is bid up to 32k, reserve not met?

(Has a aftermarket cross ram, but come on, what am I missing here?)

General Discussion / Old ad for 69 Z/28 that met ...a bulldozer.

Not sure of this car was ever discussed here. I just ran across the web page from 2014:

There is a good picture of the firewall tag, but I couldn't find a good link to post the VIN. Hopefully Kurt has the VIN number and pics on file, for when it turns up restored at auction.

General Discussion / Plans for your camaro?
« on: December 24, 2017, 04:45:34 AM »
So I had been talking to a new member, and he disclosed some plans he has for making a few changes in the new year. So I had been thinking of things that I am kinda working on, or towards, and thought it would be good to hear from some of the guys here what they are trying to get done currently or in the coming months. :)

For me I was able to finally get a temp gauge, and oil pressure gauge mounted in my white 69, so I don't have to rely on the idiot lights. Felt like I was driving blind. I am am still trying to locate a Stewart Warner 990B transmitter, to get my tach operational. I also located a set of (4)Goodyear wide tread GT tires for a pretty good deal. So if I can pull that off and swap out my BFG's for those, that would be cool.   

I saw the description of this car for sale:

the seller is:  14x4guy

and auction #322942831678

So he has this 1969 Z/28 (124379N626613) for sale (up for bid), and he discloses it does not have the original transmission. He shows a good pic of the trans partial VIN 19N648286. So if you have a 69 Camaro with VIN 124379N648286 you are the lucky winner. Hopefully you find this thread and are able to track down the new owner and work out a trade. Good luck! ;)

Hey I also saw this car posted and even with 1 repaint it just looks like a nice cream puff to cruise as is:

I think this car will also bid up a ways based on condition, but worth a look at.


General Discussion / Sweet looking 69 BB car for sale
« on: December 08, 2017, 03:50:39 PM »
Hey I saw this posted on ebay, and thought "everyone loves to find a car just like that"

A original BB 4 speed car with heaps of patina, awesome.

Any guesses on what this beauty will go for? I gotta think that patina will drive guys to bid higher...

General Discussion / 1969 Camaro STOLEN in Texas! Yenko?
« on: December 07, 2017, 08:02:24 AM »
So I saw this posting on Facebook, in the vintage 1969 camaro group:

Nov 4th this poor guy got his dream car stolen. I can not vouch for the Yenko authenticity, but it is a 69 Camaro at the least, which has been been painted Hugger Orange, (originally 53 53 Glacier blue)

If you read the story he gives the license plate and VIN of the trailer but I never see the Camaro Vin number mentioned?
Anyways, I feel for anyone who gets a car stolen, its a terrible thing, :-\
 I hope something turns up for this guy.

Garage Talk / 2018 Camaro the 350 427 and 302 Cubic inch motors are back!!!
« on: November 01, 2017, 05:10:39 PM »
Hey guys I just saw this interesting presentation on the 2018 COPO Camaro and at the end of the video they announce that with each COPO you can choose which motor you want installed, with the option of purcashsing each of the other 2 motors, that will VIN matched to the car. I was not as impressed with the 350 cubic inch motor annoucement since Chevrolet has had a motor in there line up with very close to 350 C.I. , but the announcement of a 302 I thought was very interesting, and makes me wonder if this will be the motor designated for use in the upcoming Z/28.

If Chevrolet came out with a 6th gen Z/28 that indeed had a 302 C.I. motor will that get customers in the show rooms to purchase?

of course I am sure it will depend on price, and with the extra marketing power they are bound to use, I assume the new Z/28 will be priced at around 75k, BUT will they offer it in more colors, and a few more options ?

Could you special order it in "orange crush" ?

All questions I guess we will find out in time. I did not see the dyno numbers for each COPO engine. if someone wants to post that.

Garage Talk / 2018 Camaro is Hugger Orange back?
« on: November 01, 2017, 03:28:43 PM »
Hey guys saw that Chevrolet was teaming up with Hot Wheels again for a special edition Hot Wheels Camaro. This time the exclusive color is Orange, and it is not metallic like the 5th gen "inferno orange" . It looks closer to the Hugger Orange of 1969. I think they said the orange is to reminiscent of the orange tracks they have made for the cars since 1968.
For the die hard H.O. crowd this may be what gets them into a 6th gen. I know a handful of CRG members have a 5th gen on here, but I have't heard many owning a 6th gen.

What do you guys think in general of the 6th gen?
( A little lighter than the 5th gen, for SS models about 30 more horsepower. )
