Just taking a minute to chime in here.  All inspections are done on-site and yes, I do generate a four to five page report on every car that I inspect in person.  Many dealers are guilty of using just the cert to sell a car.  I don't like it and will figure out a way to change the current way I write the cert (adding maybe report enclosed?).  I have a client who bought a real '68 Z28 with my cert but without the full report because the seller didn't want him to know that the drive train was re-stamped.

Most have wised up though as I get many, many calls where people will ask about the full report.  All cars that I do are logged into my data base.

Reports take anywhere from 3-5 hours to generate.  Been working on one today, an L78 70 Camaro with re-stamped DT.  More work for me in reports like this as I have to provide data analysis.

The underside is as nice as the interior and exterior.

A well documented 26,000 original mile car.  All of the hard to find parts, alt, dist, carb, radiator, wheels, etc. have never left the vehicle.  Very hard to find in today's market.

This is a very nice car.  It has qualified for "Legends Certification."  Z28's like this don't come around that often.  I did a lot of tuning on the car while at my shop.  It had not been driven for many years.  This car runs and drives like a brand new Z28.  Even though I'm not a '69 Z guy, I would not mind having this one in my garage!  I too am a big fan of Dusk blue.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1111480 distributor
« on: June 08, 2015, 02:32:22 AM »
9H12 is the latest date I have for the 480.  My research from customer's distributors that we've restored show that the 9H12 and 9E13 and 9E16 were used late in the year.  Oct of '69 on the 9H12.  We've also had customers who have sent in 1112003's in very late cars who claim they're original.  All distributors were produced in large batches.  Two dates known for the 003, 9G11 and 9G18.

There are no GM docs or memos stating that the 003 would replace the 480.  That is what I stated in the latest edition of my book.  GM generated a memo about usage on the 1111266 being used on the early production '68 Z28's.  Why would they not follow suit with the 003?  We've restored thousands over the years and this is the latest data that I have.

Here's Ben and I at the Bristol race in 2010.  We shot some photos for Charlie Lingenfelter at the track.

Hoosiers, 9 x 30's.  That's all we;re allowed in Stock Eliminator.  Here's my new race car back in the day at 75-80 Drayway.  About 1972-73.

Yes, but it was not a Jenkins Strickler car.  They were into a new L78 Camaro that B. Jenkins drove and Strickler was driving a funnycar style Corvette in 1967.

I think I have just figured out that Bryan's original photo was taken at Indy, the U.S. Nationals which Ben wound up winning.  Note the shoe polish on the front windshield matches perfecly to the photo in the winner's circle, September 1967.  Jenkins won the NHRA Super Stock Eliminator at this event too.

Bryan, Ben doesn't remember that event.  Especially Indy Winder Nationals.  There would be sonw there at that time of the year.  He won the Indy in '67 so I have to wonder if this was taken at the U.S. Nationals when he won?  Here's a photo that I shot with Ben and my Strickler Z28 at the 2004 Bristol national event.  We pitted together and this is the first year he debuted the new original lettering on the car.  Very cool.

The other cool part of the story is Ben had told me about his tow car, a matching Tahoe turquoise 396 Impala convertible.  He's never been able to come up with a photo of that car but you have unknowingly supplied a color photo of his '67 Z28 and the 396 Impala.  Very cool.  I'm going to call him now.

General Discussion / Burgundy '69 Z28 For Sale, Ebay
« on: January 29, 2015, 08:15:25 PM »
Just a note to the group.  Seller on Ebay selling '69 Z28 stating car has its original number's matching engine.  I have confirmed for a client that it does not.  Here's a photos for all to see.  All of the characters for an 09C late build Z28 engine are incorrect.  The vin stamped numbers are not even close.  Just an FYI, buyer's beware.

Attention all 1967 Z28 owners.  After 10 years of working with John Kelsey on the 7.35 x 15" redlines for the '67 Z28, the tires are now available through Kelsey Tire.  I received the first redline Goodyear Power Cushion sample today.  We have been working on the details of this project since last year.  Very exciting news for the hobby.
