Found these images of my 1st Z/28. Purchased in the summer of '69. Sold it in 1973 when the gas crisis hit. Regreted it ever since, like a lot of guys.

Group/7 Went back and found the original thread I started back in March  2018. It tells the story from my friend Jimís recollection of how he purchased the car. I think it is pretty interesting reading
The picture was taken @ the San Fernando Drag Strip in the Spring of 1969.

Re: reply143. That picture is of my Navy buddy Jimís Z /28 from an earlier post of mine.  It was, according to him, the 6th Z/28 off of the Los Angeles assembly line. He sold the car back in the 70ís, but still has the original window sticker. I do have a copy. Donít know what happened to the car. Did Google search of VIN, but no luck.  It was such an early car.The headrests were an option. Donít know if the spoilers were deleted or just werenít ordered.  Thx for posting

Contacted an automotive paint supply store & they wanted a paint code. Does anyone have a paint code for Argent Silver?

General Discussion / Argent Silver/ Krylon dull Aluminum
« on: April 06, 2023, 02:10:25 PM »
Tried to find Argent Silver in an aerosol can. Went to Eastwood. Wonít be available until July. OK, I saw that Krylon 1403 Dull Aluminum is a good substitute. Went looking for that atÖ Walmart, Home Depot, Loweís, couple of Hardware stores. Donít have it. OnlineÖ.same thing. Not available until 2nd quarter of the year. Is there another substitute silver that Krylon makes that is close to Argent Silver? I like the Krylon because it is made to use on plastic

Wanted to have someone to go through my M-21 Muncie transmission. Just for the piece of mind. Have had the car for over 7 years now and it  a little hard shifting from 1st to 2nd sometimes. Tried contacting several shops in my area and NOBODY seems to work on manual transmissions any more. Asked around to friends for anybody they might know. No luck. Found a couple of guys who could do the overhaul, BUT they canít pull the trans or reinstall. Canít work on car myself now and really donít have a place to do it. Is this the way it is in other parts of the country as well?

General Discussion / 50ís & 60ís Assembly line workers
« on: April 24, 2020, 05:48:43 PM »
Watching one of the shows on car assembly lines. Got me thinking about what kind of training did the new assembly line workers (Specifically Chevrolet) get before they were put on the line. The pace that the line moved had to be a little daunting to a new worker. The noise, new unfamiliar surroundings and pressure to keep up was scary to a newbie. Was there a system to make sure the worker installed the correct part or option were installed on the correct car? Also, was there a large turnover?  Being in the union I guess the pay and benefits were pretty good.

Good!  Glad I checked before I just jumped in. Iíll take them out & clean them up. Any suggestions on cleaning solutions? Mild laundry soap?

Originality / Original seat belts

Pulled out the back seat and this is what I found. Could this be how they came from the factory or one of the previous owners just taped them up?

Addional question. Will be painting the X77 no D80 2A NOR car soon. When I bought it 5 years one of the previous owners put the Z21 trim on. Removed that. It also has the front & rear spoilers. Donít know if it originally came with spoilers, but I do want to keep them. Read section on CRG re:spoilers. To keep this as original as I can, should I paint the rear stripes all the way to the back of the trunk lid then install the spoiler so the stripes show on the lip or just assume it came from factory with spoilers and just paint it that way so the stripes donít show on the rear of the trunk.
