That is a very nice Z10.  Last daughter is getting married later this year.  I guess the full resto on mine will have to wait awhile.

I returned to my car's original dealer about 6 years ago, which is now the oldest family owned Chevy dealer in Texas, and met with the owner, who I went to high school with.  He led me to an atic area in the dealership and found a box of NOS shiny chrome metal dealer emblems from the late 60's and early 70's.  He gave me a couple of them.  One I cut off the metal mounting prongs and attached magnetic strips to the back.  When I go to shows I snap the emblem to the back of my car.  I always hated these things in the past, but it looks perfect at shows.

Yep, those are the same type models.  I've looked on ebay since I posted this and someone just listed a 69 Z11 like the one I picked up.  Starting bid drum roll..............................$400.  Wow.  You guys are going to cry when I tell you I paid $7.50 or $15.00 for both of them.  The store had several others that were not of interest to me.  I remember a 62 Impala SS.  I think I'm going to make a 250 mile trip one way Friday and pick up everything she has.
Here's a link to the one that was just listed.  Looks exactly like the one I picked up.  Hard to believe the price, they really are a cheap model.http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Chevy-Camaro-Pace-Car-Promo-graded-9-out-10-JP153-/170743590425?_trksid=p4340.m185&_trkparms=algo%3DSIC.NPJS%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUA%26otn%3D5%26pmod%3D330636585584%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D4736411110527466096#ht_2338wt_1187

Ok, I remember when I was a kid back in the 60's Chevy dealers often had 1:24 scale plastic models of the new years models.  I was never fortunate to have one of these until this weekend.  I was browsing around an antique store with my wife when I came across a plastic box with about 10 cars.  What caught my eye was a Z11 model complete with door decals.  I also found a gold 67 RS/SS.  I also recall a 62 Impala coupe. 

The older lady who owned and operated the store told me that these were in the back of her husbands closest, who it turns out, owned the dealership.

Does anyone have any idea what these are worth? They are in great shape but do not have the boxes.

Thanks,

Gary, I understand the delima.  My Z10 was a decent driver when I bought it, then I started bringing it back to where it need to be.  Lot's of dollars and effort.  That was over the first 6 or 7 years that I owned the car.  To take it to the next level I would need to strip it down and repaint.  But then I new I would not drive the thing for feaf of bug splatter or heaven forbid a rock chip.  So I decided that I would have more  fun just leaving it as it was and driving it.  So, I pulled the engine, to preserve it, and replaced it with a ZZ4.  This really changed the personality of the car.  I woke it up.  Much more powerful and I didn't worry about blowing up the motor.  This was great for the next couple of years.  Then I started to want another toy.  But selling the Z10 is out of the question. 

So, my newest toy is a 2006 Z06 Corvette.  I love this thing and it's really a much better ride than the Camaro.  But, on nice days, when the mood hits, the Z10 is waiting to be taken for a spin. My first true love is a 1st gen camaro, and probably always will be.

Cheers!

Second vote for Zainos.  I use in on my Z10 and my Z06.  Good stuff.

Seems like a nice car, with the exception of the Orange interior and door decals.  Let's see if he get's $75k

Mine was shipped to Culberson-Stowers Chevrolet in Pampa, TX.  The dealership is still in operation.  One of the oldest dealerships in Texas.

I have the original window sticker and POP.

39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 camaro heater core on: October 21, 2010, 01:11:27 PM
About 5 years ago, I purchased one from my local AutoZone.  I was shocked that it was a stock item.  I think these heater cores were used in a number of GM cars for a lot of years.  I believe I paid about $35 for it.  One suggestion I would give you before you install any heater core, is to have it pressure tested by a radiator shop before you install it.

Nothing worse than spending the better part of a day replacing it, and then find out it leaks.  Don't ask me how I know.   Undecided

40  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: How often do you wash your Camaro? And what do you use to wash it? on: June 16, 2010, 03:24:32 PM
Mine has been washed about 3 times in 11 years.  I keep it covered, use a california duster, and Zaino or Mequires detail spray. 

Water = Rust

How cool is that Kurt!  Mine is a 4pseed, 350, Black houndstooth, power steering, power brakes, AM radio, no console.   How does that match up with yours?

I think yours is the closest vin to mine that I've seen.

My car was built 50 cars after this one, and mine is a 713 black houndstooth also.

Kurt, my vin ends in 638321  how close is your car?
