General Discussion / Just like the factory did it!

I'd be willing to bet that over the years, more than just a few workers got their fingers wrapped!!

General Discussion / Early 1968 smog pump
« on: September 19, 2016, 09:55:39 PM »
Again, not mine, but because not a lot of Camaro guys frequent the Corvette sites, I thought I'd post it here in case you have a 1968  L6, 327, or 350 engine and are looking for a smog pump.

THIS ONE (scroll down to "pump #4) is dated October 17th, 1967 and he only wants $30 plus shipping. It's frozen, but they can be repaired fairly cheaply.

General Discussion / Seems like a pretty good price
« on: September 17, 2016, 07:17:15 PM »
Not mine, but I asked what the date was on the motor and the seller said it was 10-68, so anyone with an early to mid 69 might want to check it out.

Maintenance / Chem-Dip is crap
« on: August 22, 2016, 11:04:52 PM »
20 years ago I used to buy the gallon can of Chem-Dip to clean my carbs for rebuilding. It was great stuff.

I read a lot of reviews today and they all said that Chem-Dip is now garbage. Apparently, because of the freekin' EPA regulations (thanks again big government), it's no longer the same formula it was years ago.

So... What do you guys NOW use to clean carbs? And can I get it in the most liberal (make that useless) state in the union, California?

General Discussion / Let's go back in time!
« on: July 13, 2016, 05:30:59 PM »
The next time the CRG decides to make Tee shirts, I think it would be cool to do a racing jacket instead. I was leafing through some of my old J.C. Whitney catalogs last night and found this (see below) from 1969. I even made a mock-up of what it would look like with the CRG logo (second picture below).

And at only $9.95 plus shipping, it's a great deal!!! (Too bad those prices aren't valid anymore!)

On my LOCAL CRAIGSLIST, but I'm having trouble trying to decipher what he's trying to get accross!

1970 wanted to have super sport Camero LS motor Dart angle plug 202 fully heads
Fort Warner Superchick and transmission Schatar Shell Hearst for state v gate shifter centerline will centreline wheels
The car is taking apart it is a project car serious builders only Price is firm no negotiations
6500

I think he has a 1970 SS with an LS engine and Dart 2.02 heads for sale, but some of it is gibberish.

Fort Warner Superchick = Some kind of Borg Warner transmission?? Super T-10 maybe?
Schatar Shell Hearst for state V gate = Hurst V-Gate shifter and a high stall torque converter??
centerline will centreline wheels = Centerline wheels I'm assuming

General Discussion / And yet ANOTHER misinformed ebay buyer
« on: March 14, 2016, 04:02:55 PM »
Some lucky guy just spent $60 for something he could have purchased from one of the MANY vendors for $15 (for TWO)!

Listed as a 3899716 DEFOGGER KNOB, you can see it's really nothing more than a beat up old 1967-1968 Camaro radio knob!

And by the way, when he gets it, he'll find it WON'T fit on the shaft of his defogger switch (trust me, I tried!!)

DO YOUR HOMEWORK PEOPLE.

General Discussion / Original dealer info for 1st gens is available
« on: January 16, 2014, 07:53:11 PM »
Well, now you can find out EXACTLY what dealer your car was delivered to!

Starting in mid April, 2014, the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) will now be able to tell you the ordering dealer code, dealer name, dealer location, and the production date that your car (1965 through 1972 for Camaro, Chevelle and Nova) was produced!

Now you can have the same information that was previously only available to 1962-1975 Corvettes. Armed with this data, you may be able to find the original dealer where your car was shipped, and possibly find out more information about your Chevrolet.

The Shipping Data Report can only be ordered online but membership in NCRS is NOT required. Fees will be $50 payable by credit card or PayPal and you will receive via USPS a letter with the information which includes the NCRS official seal. Note that in limited cases the dealer code may not be available or readable, and in this case a full refund will be made.

For more information, click https://www.chevymuscledocs.com/ and again, note that this service starts in mid April, 2014.

NICE CAR, but can the people bidding really be this stupid? The POP doesn't match his VIN and the Windshield Sticker is a reproduction!

POP VIN is 124678N434704 and the car is 124678N433549

Since the POP didn't match the VIN, I sent the seller an email asking him about it. His reply was that "The protecto plate came with the car when I bought it a few years back and I've had it in my safe ever since"

Well, considering that POP was on ebay just a few months ago (08-03-13 by seller fdgoodnight), it's a bit difficult to believe his story! So yet another ebay seller caught in a lie.

this is the real thing.my father and myself purchased this Z28 in i believe june 1968.we bought it from tom carney chevy/olds inc. in bluffton indiana (believe no longer in business).the sticker is in very good shape.there is one small tear in the center where it was folded on the left and a small hole on the righ side.both are visable in the pictures.  i contacted the person i sold it to and he didnt recall to whom he sold it to and without the vin number i couldnt do a title search...the car was equipted as the sticker shows but it did have a wooden look plastic 3 spoke steering wheel, origional equiptment,installed at the dealer.it doesent show up on the sticker...also included are some area quotes for compairing the prices. carney was the only dealer that had this Z28 on hand.the others dealers would have to ordered it from the the factory...please ask if any questions and ill try to answer proper. check out my feedback and be confident. buy now or make me an offer. sold to lower 48 only though alaska and hawaii ok but prob wont rec in 3 days priority mail.  sold as-is with no returns accepted.  if you have this car you NEED this sticker. if you have a similar you still NEED this sticker.ill pack in in a flat rate envelope with enough cardboard that it wont be bent...believe me,id rather still have the car than this sticker...paypal only

Decoding/Numbers / New creep on the block!
« on: May 17, 2013, 01:50:33 PM »
Looks like there's a new player in the FAKE TRIM TAG/FAKE VIN TAG game. (Thanks to Warren Leunig for pointing them out)

deniser3592 from Uxbridge, Ontario Canada

Check out the feedback and you'll see the blank VIN tags. Also note the name "Bill" in THIS AUCTION. I wonder if it's our old friend Bill Clements. Last I heard he had moved to Canada, so it's very possible.

In this example, there are two:

1967 Trim Tag

01E E
ST 67 12437 NOR180567 BODY
TR 760-Z K-K PAINT
2HLG 3L

1969 Trim Tag

ST 69 12437 NOR193681 BDY
TR 719 52 52 PNT
12B X33 D80

Thank goodness they're HORRIBLE and a 5 year old could tell the difference!!
