Good reads Mike.

Hey Danny, how you been? Long time no post.

As usual, buyer beware, do the research.

Welcome to the site, priceless info here to aid in your resto project. Shoot pics, and lots of them for your documentation records. Keep an eye out for codes stamped in your oe sheet metal. Doing some searching here will point you in the right direction. Nice color, should make the lines pop when its done.

Even the gears, I get: " hey, 4.88's been in the Z since 70, but it's yours, do what you want with it, frown"

It will be a good thread D. Dad is the reason I cant put the flat hood and oe exhaust on mine. Calls those builds "old lady cars" lol. Hey, I get it, he beat the pi..out of that 302, and it stayed together. 20% for me, 80% for him. Luckily didnt lose him to cancer over the winter, when its done, want to let him roll it in, open headers. No deadline for you, enjoy the build.  He does get on me how long it is taking though. I think going on 5 years now, on a car that presented great with factory paint. Try to explain its a high dollar model to me. When I want to cut corners, it gets covered up and put away. Your car will be phenom when its done ;)

Think just a little friendly teasing ;)

So last week my buddy comes up to my desk and hands me his slip: .014 light, 7.98, 170+, broke out of the 8's, making rounds. Seasoned dragracer. Has been doing some 1/8th mile at other tracks, guess what next pass: lifted at the 1/8th, lost the round. We laughed, but get it? And I have quite a few tails from the strip...

I will say from experience 4 gears are fun on the street, short life span on a slicked car at the strip. Considering how quick the swap is, might wanna build an auto just for events. A trans brake really launches nice. If not interested, have the munci beefed up for racing.

Im a fan of the bigger cube small blocks. As long as 302 is on the air cleaner, most wont know its roller cammed dart block, 427, with 2.08's. Reverse pattern, full manual 350 with a brake, moser sportsman kit in the rear, ford style bearings. Time to make a comeback at the strip...13's....lols.

He has all four, just the shot. Earns his stay by keeping the place vermin free. Only mean to spiders, birds, chipmunks, baby rabbits, mice, other cats, and small snakes. He nailed me a few times when he was younger, crazy tom, no reason. Mellowing with age now.

You have been talking about that Z for awhile,  need to rehash the story for those fairly new to the site. Nice to see it will be coming back to life. Always a good read theses projects.

Cat has all four, just the pic.
Purpose built always has fun as the intent. They tend to look best nose up off the line, front wheels hanging...jmo.

Found this site years ago as a link on Jerry M's site. Was looking for production numbers of Ashgold 68 Z's, and how many 68 Z's were still accounted for. Only became active on it a few years ago. This is my only social media site, lol. Don't do Facebook. BTY, here is were I discovered the numbers on the distributor verifying it came off the Camaro. Honestly I thought it came out of a 64 Impala I owned in the late 80's, and got mixed in with parts.

Cant make it out, what kind of times was the black nova cutting? 

Anytime you dont break is a good weekend at the strip, lol. Next year brother, think i'd enjoy a weekend like that with Z. Was just talking to my wife today about it. More of a fun run event i gather? I mean they would let me run with after market axels? Drive shaft loop?  Doesn't have to be out of the box factory?  Used to have a Muscle Car Nats at Norwalk many years ago, good event. Still had to pass tech.
