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!

Quote
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.

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!!

General Discussion / This is why you NEVER trust anyone on ebay
« on: January 12, 2013, 09:04:54 PM »
Some really nice docs for a Norwood LF7 Coupe were sold a few days ago by seller rradar2002 out of Medford, OR.

LINK

The seller said:

Quote
68 Camaro Owners Manual + Envelope + Waranty & Owner Protection Plan with Metal ID Plate  + Window Sticker + Milage Sticker + Inspection Schedule + Air Pollution Brochure. Most  items are in VG to Excellent Condition. Was saved from vehicle I owned and kept inside out of sun or moisture.   Will make a nice presentation for your Camaro.  Be sure to ask about the condition of individual items before bidding. Thanks.

They were purchased with a buy it now of $50.00 by another ebay seller wbjpmj out of Canfield, OH, but in HIS ad, the car has magically turned into an SS!!

THIS IS THE REAL DEAL. A FACTORY ORIGINAL 1968 CAMARO SPORT COUPE SS WINDOW STICKER WITH THE MATCHING OWNERS PROTECTION PLAN BOOKLET AND THE ORIGINAL NEW VEHICLE CHECK IN SHEET. IF YOU OWN A BUTTERNUT YELLOW SS WITH A BLACK VINYL TOP VIN ID: 124378N449356 SOLD NEW IN AUGUST OF 1968 FROM DANIELS CHEVROLET IN COLORADO SPRINGS COLORADO THIS IS YOUR ORIGINAL DOCUMENTATION !!!!!! This is one of those pieces that you don't find everyday and when you do it is not in the condition this piece is in for that exclusive show piece. No need to play the bidding game here as you can buy it today and receive it in three days. All Literature listed is of the finest quality and will compliment any show car of any quality. Unless listed as a daily driver piece the photo that you see is the item that you will receive. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase simply send it back and I will refund your purchase price less the original shipping costs.

 If you are looking for the finishing touch for your show piece or daily driver and want only the best in Factory Original Literature in hard to find pieces you have found on of the Rarest collections in existence. I will be listing 20-25 pieces per week until sold which I can assure you will be quite sometime with over 1,600 pieces for all makes and models. I have the Original owners manuals, warranty booklet's and plates, tire brochures, emission brochures, radio brochures, convertible top manuals, envelopes, bags, leather pouches and anything else that may have been found in the glove box of the vehicle when it rolled off the showroom floor. You will find that my prices based on the condition of all of my literature are the best on E-Bay.  

I have factory original owners Manuals and Portfolio's for most makes and models from 1929 to 2013. If you do not see what you are looking for add me to your favorites as I am sure it will be available here soon.

The item you see is the one being sent to you should you be the winning bidder. There are no RE-PRINTS in this collection. RE-PRINTS are found all over the internet, however factory original pieces are of the hardest to acquire especially in the condition found here.

Factory Original Owners Protection Plan Booklet with Metal Plate for a 1968 Camaro Sport Coupe WITH THE MATCHING ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER AND MATCHING VIN. This particular piece was from a Butternut Yellow with a Black Vinyl Top VIN ID: 124378N449356 with the Matching OPP Manual and Plate. The book is in exceptional condition,  Original Part number is 3936265 FIRST Edition and also has the Original Dealer Pre-Delivery Sheet and the owners name was never filled in. As seen in the photo literature is in excellent condition. Rating this piece on a scale of 1-10 considering it's age I would give it a 9.5. Please review the photo closely prior to bid or purchase. Being an original piece which is very hard to acquire it is an excellent original piece.  Looking for other Vette Manuals, Import Manuals, Domestic Manuals, Service Manuals, Parts Manuals, or other unique show car literature keep checking my auctions as they will be here.

All items will be sent by Economy First Class Mail with delivery confirmation for your protection as well as mine. Shipping will be FREE across the United States and $8.00 to Canada. Others please e-mail prior to purchase and verify that I ship to your area.

Not only that, but he didn't include the rest of the docs and paperwork in his auction, so you're getting less for more $$$! Now, I'm not saying the new seller is trying to rip anyone off (you can make that decision on your own), but I've contacted him about his "mistake", and what do you wnat to bet the auction WON'T be changed?

The lesson? Do the detective work BEFORE you buy. (Thanks for the heads up Warren!!)

« on: January 09, 2013, 09:01:17 PM »
Gents, I received an email from Michael Brennan, the chair of the muscle car selection committee for the 2013 SAN MARINO MOTOR CLASSIC.

He's asking for original (or restored) ZL-1 and/or other COPO owners that might be interested in participating.

If you have a ZL-1 or a COPO, and would like to enter your car, please contact Michael at adventureland4me@hotmail.com

If you don't have a ZL-1 or a COPO, but know someone that does, please pass this info to them.

Thanks
