Decoding/Numbers / Re: Vin Stamp by oil filter on a LOS car
« on: January 30, 2019, 09:22:19 PM »
A word of warning! regarding my storage containers, I used 48' trailers to store eight cars and numerous parts and thought it was a great idea to use them until I could eventually build my new garage, well that was approximately seven years ago and when I finally transferred the cars I found pretty bad oxidation from  moisture that formed in these containers through condensation which forms on the ceilings of these things due to no ventilation.  So I have cars that were show winners at one time with rust in the engine compartments, etc. there a mess! I learned the hard way and do NOT recommend any long term storage in those containers. P.S. I live in New Mexico where the climate is very dry and it made no difference condensation will happen when there is no vents, just like a building.

Hi Austin, I sent the high resolution ones to your email and a couple of extras which detail the vin better.

Here is another orphan block I found which appears to also be from a LOS car.

Decoding/Numbers / Vin Stamp by oil filter on a LOS car
« on: January 17, 2019, 12:21:05 AM »
I have been going through my storage containers to organize the parts I have acquired over the last 35 years and just found a 1969 Z-28 block which has a stamp pad showing VO927DZ and the partial VIN # on the oil filter flange shows 9L5034 and I can't make out any other numbers, so my question is based on the build date of the VIN wouldn't this be a Sept. 27Th 1968 built engine and if so wouldn't the partial VIN be on the engine pad? As I am cleaning out these containers I will post the orphan blocks and  transmissions.

I have been a NCRS member for many years and I still own 5 Vettes had seven, sold two and added 2 Camaros to my garage! for all the reasons stated above in addition to just loving first gen Camaros and I can tell you that even in the Vette community there has been a lot of disillusion with members because of the Egos involved in judging etc.. , I have had friends that have been  long term members sell their Vette(s) because of all the politics and Egos, I do enjoy my Corvettes because I actually drive them! and no longer partake in that gruesome and Ego driven judging process. It is about having fun and the people involved in the Camaro community seem to understand that and have respect for one another even if we don't own a matching numbers fully documented 2,900 mile ZL-1 survivor! and you wonder why they want to expand the following with Camaro enthusiasts??

Very impressive HP numbers! What ignition are you running? I'm about to do a similar set up on my Z with a Vintage T.I. set up.

Does this mean that Corvettes will be invited to the Camaro Nationals?? Maybe as a stepping stone for getting into the  Camaro hobby?
