Yep, that it. I thought I added it.
Looks like it went for good money with the NOM and detail issues....

Just saw this tag and it looked odd, but I know some verts have off tags.

Got a photo? I've never seen a GM air cleaner lid with an O-ring seal.

Here's one from a 69 LM1, same as the L48, and yes it does have the rubber O-Ring seal.
Sorry for the quality, cell phone pics. Hope these help.

Ah, missed the date in the second post.....

The quadrajet was only put on the L34 and L35 396 cars, I think.  The VIN ends with 520387, made about the 4th day of February, I think.

Is there any way to tell if the car came with a 325 versus a 350 hp 396?

Thanks again!

And the L48 and LM1 cars as well...... Smiley

Rich,
First thing we did was image Jerry's computer. In fact, that's how we upgraded him from his old drive to new. Unfortunatley, we discovered he is woefully out of date on Windows/Office upgrades. we will continue to encourage Jerry to move to Outlook...
Best,
John

Sounds like you have it under control! Smiley

Jerry,
One of my guys sent me this as well, it's a Juno export utility to export the Juno FRM files to files that can be imported to other mail systems, such as "outlook" (although outlook .pst files start choking around 2gb data) .

http://ephemeraleuphoria.com/media/juno5bdb.html  for the emails

http://www.filetransit.com/files.php?name=Juno_Mail_Server  for the Juno address book

It might be a good time to take John's advice and switch. You could even have john set up an email @z28camaro.com for you. Hosted email is pretty cheap these days. Just a thought,

Rich

Jerry,
I asked several of my engineers and none had any juno specific advice. One sent me this link about the same problem with 5.0 somewhere else, and might provide some info.

As always, before trying to fix anything make sure you have a backup of what you have.

In fact, I would recommend that you ask the guys at your shop to make a vmware "image" of your system, this is the ultimate backup as it makes an image file of the whole OS/data and you can run that "virtual" pc in another pc.

We have several older programs at a railroad customer that willnot run on newer PC's that we run in virtual windows. We also do this in expert witness cases to keep the data integrity.

Hope this helps some, and as you have helped me, feel free to call me if you want to ask any questions.

Bummer, thought I learned something new......
Thanks for the heads up.

Someone also pointed out that in that floorpan shot you can see a seam near the tunnel, meaning that somone replaced that floorpan at some point. So, not as pristine as first thought, but still a LM1 vert.

Thanks Guys,

Rich

Even the grounding strap is in place, and has original orange overspray on it:

Nawlins!
But the car came from Ohio. Someone robbed the 12 bolt though.......
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / XCode LM1 Vert. on: January 23, 2010, 11:43:11 AM
Found and Purchased a pretty cool little car, a fairly late LM1, with an X-Code.

Still has the #'s match LM1 "HQ" coded engine and Muncie 3 Speed Transmission.

12C tag and X44 Blue/Blue car.

Looks like an XGF/Wife took a baseball bat to it though......
Not too rusty for a Vert.











30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: If you bought a car based on certification......... on: January 23, 2010, 11:31:27 AM
"quote author=JimM
I've seen several certification reports that were displayed with cars for sale, and included areas that were "whited out" "



Jim, I know that as the values change freqently on these cars that many (including me) will regularly cover the "value" line on Jerry's report when selling a car, especially on Ebay to not affect bidding. I do however, when asked, provide a full copy to anyone that asks for one on a car I am selling.

As always, anyone who is buying a car with Jerry or anyone else's cert (Or as Hylton said GM Canada) should call that person and ask questions, PRIOR to purchase, IMO.

One of the things I personally like is being able to call and talk to Jerry when buying or selling a car, and get the "scoop". Let's face it, with paperwork that you can't trust these days, and NICB that most of us cannot get and verify, it's is a big help to be able to ask questions of someone who has seen a car independantly. It has helped me sell some cars, buy some cars and steer clear of some cars.

Also, one other point and a "Dirty Little Secret"- In many cases a car is restored with NOS parts, gets inspected, and then upon being sold restamped parts replace the NOS parts prior to sale. On a six figure car you should always have it reinspected IMO.
