I don't have the knowledge to say if the actual tag is real or not. But the rivet area looks tampered with. Weird goop pattern around rivets. Like it's trying to hide something. Maybe real, but off the car at some point?... Danny

I have to say, I just don't think it happened. I too watched it take place at about 8 years old. I know they explained all the flag wave/ no stars/ shadows / footprints without moisture etc. Pretty much everything seemed to have a logical answer. But 250,000 miles away is a pretty long distance for a phone call in the late 60's. But ya never know I guess. Danny

I guess it would matter if it is a drive train numbers matching car. The engine is the heart of it all. If that is not original born with to the car, than it would begin to be OK for the paint to be incorrect. Then the trans and rear axle follow close behind. If it all is verified, inspected as a numbers matching REAL Z/28... THEN that would NOT be good. A complete paint job or even a correction of the hood/cowl/deck lid etc., would be thousands of dollars. Lots more to consider like the asking price, and how bad you want it, or if you even CARE if it's all original. Then you have components. They can be costly if missing. The dist., carb, generator, smog, manifolds both intake and exhaust, water pump, clutch & Fan IF missing, can add up to a quick TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS! If I was you, I would post pictures here, of all the numbers you can find on the engine, trans and rear axle. Better make sure it's the real deal FIRST. If not, buy it and most of all have fun with it. Danny

Can I use the Meguires over the top of the Race Glaze sealant? Or do I need to clean the whole car first with a light stripper? Danny

Nice job ya did.. I am an amateur but I think it turned out OK. I didn't REALLY cut it much. Just used a regular moist waxing pad and Race Glaze Leveling Compound. Then the Race Glaze polishing sealant. No machines or 5,000 or 2,00 sand cloth.. I am sure it could go another step with an electric polisher, but I don't have one or the knowledge. My friend used to say you have to heat it up and don't be afraid. I used to watch him push that machine down hard, no thanx. See the picture of the water . Danny

The previous owner had this car before Dave for about 48 years. He no longer has any cars that are older than the late 70's and 80's. So not sure what happened to all those cars you mentioned. I have spent HOURS and HOURS on this car. The picture I posted is after I cut and polished the whole car by HAND! I will be starting a post hopefully soon. Gotta get a lot of pictures organized.

I have a couple friends that I have been helping that don't have the knowledge when it comes to purchasing classic cars. But they want to get into it. Not that I have a ton of knowledge, but I have more then them. Then I have another friend that is always looking and wants me to go in with him as a partner. I am still looking at 3 '68 Z/28's and a '69, and also a '63 Corvette. So I guess the answer to the question is yes... I, we, are looking to purchase. Danny
