Decoding/Numbers / Re: Caveat Emptor...another repro body tag?
« on: December 18, 2020, 08:10:24 PM »
Like I said, I'm not going to name names. However, a simple search will reveal lots of information.

It's also amazing how the descriptions of these cars has changed over the last few years. It used to be "This original numbers matching...". And now it's "We believe this to be a numbers matching..." or "It appears to us to be a numbers matching...", etc...

Hiding behind a consignor isn't anything new, but it's become an even more of a "DO YOUR HOMEWORK" world lately.

I would have to imagine that there is a higher percentage of people who don't do their homework when buying such cars and that is what these dealers rely on or else they would not be in business. For those that do their homework and the car does check out now they are faced with the added mark up these dealers charge. Either way at least for me I don't like dealing with used car sales people.

Happy Birthday!

I know how you feel and I think the G was added by mistake, it's just "Olden Years".

Garage Talk / Re: My 68 Camaro's new twin!
« on: November 26, 2020, 03:04:49 PM »
Just saw this, very nice indeed!

I wish I had a twin too. I would then get a period correct trailer and put the Camaro on it, maybe slap some magnet type racing stickers on it and go to a car show like that. I am sure it would attract a lot of attention.

I have thought about doing something like that because I have thought of doing a mild day two look to the Camaro with some easy to remove bolt ons. Then just do a two car display at a indoor show with a tow bar and tools like in the pits.

Well you are 90% there if you decide to go for it.

I don't know why people block them out, you see them every day on the vehicles that are on the road. What anybody can do with that information is beyond me. It's not like your giving out your social security number. LOL

B: you may want to increase the tire pressure by a few psi as well.

It's a shame, really nice looking Camaro. Wonder why the bidding ended?

I think this is awesome. Not too many people can do this kind of work to start off with without making a big mess or just abandoning it. I am just wondering who is going to be the first one to drive it after it's done?   :-\

Back on the market again, now $10 K less than in April. Maybe they looked at this thread?

General Discussion / Re: ZL-1 Stock Eliminator
« on: March 04, 2020, 05:15:03 PM »
........

I track the existing cars as best I can. Often, cars trade hands privately. Some ZL1 owners like to be active with their cars. I have found that most not only do not, they don't care to be blabbed about. So, I respect their privacy. Because of that, information often comes my way.

Searches today are virtually impossible for the average person so the history of the 20 unknown ZL1 Camaros is probably lost in time.

I am sure there are many of us who appreciate the effort that you have gone to track down these cars (including myself) and the baton will be passed along once you are no longer able to do so.

You read http://www.camaros.org/copo.shtml ?

I have read this section a number of times, very informative. There are however more stories/history associated with each one of these vehicles but I guess some of this information is private or cannot be counted on as being accurate considering the amount of time that has passed.

I really enjoy reading these stories of the 69 ZL1 cars. It sure would be nice if someone would write a book about them and give the timeline, ownership racing or even non racing history on these vehicles from the start. I know it will have to end somewhere but with re bodies, engine transplants, etc. it sure would be a good read, at least 69 chapters worth!
