Guys, lightening hit the back of my building and caught fire.  The back half of the upstairs was badly burned but overall it could have been much worse.  I lost quite a few NOS parts that I have been saving for over 40 years but I was able to get the cars out safely.  Only damage on the main floor was from the water and fire department.  The sheet rock got wet and then fell down from the ceiling.  Will take about a month or so before I'm back up and running again.  10 trusses have to be replaced along with the plywood and shingles.  

What boggles my mind is why this happened when there is a 4 story oak tree right next to the back of my shop.  Couple that with the fact that the back wall of my shop is about 10-12 feet under ground (building was built into a bank) meaning that the tall peek of the roof is only about 12' out of the ground.

Thanks for your concern,


Hey Jerry, Gary from Clayton Delaware. Was this before or after you shipped out those 2 set of valve covers you re-skinned for me? I had no idea until later that your shop got hit. I did get them, but I would have understood if you couldn't ship them out right away. Oh and great job on the covers, too.

On the lightning thing, my wife and I just moved into her parents house after her dad passed 2 years ago. They put it up in 95 and I noticed they had these metal spikes running alone the roof top so many feet apart with a huge braided cable going in the ground. I have heard of these things but never really knew/know if they really work. Do they?

In 1968, you could order a Chevelle with a 327/325 hp engine which was really strong.   A friend had one outfitted with all the SS goodies, bucket seats, 4 speed, console, etc.. and it would blow the doors off of SS396's.   I'd love to have one of those now.. Smiley

Yeah!! I like the 327 engine a lot more than I like the 350. You can wind the heck out of them like the 283's and 302's. Ehhh, big blocks are OK for some people, I was never really impressed by them and have been around a lot in the 70's, lots of torque, but I like the ear shattering whine from a 283, 327, and 302 when they are upstairs. I had this one in the 90's. 327/375 fuelie engine, ports opened up a bit, 12 bolt 4.56's, manual valve body T350. This car was a solid 12.5 car when I bought it. It was a beast.

I was looking at my 69 Chassis Service Manual today, specifically Q-jet part numbers and saw a reference for 350 (325) horsepower carb number 7029207 manual trans. Can I assume this is for a Corvette 350 or was it used in anything else? I question this because someone has this carb on ebay saying it's for a 350/300 and that number isn't correct for that engine. 255 LM1 and 300 is 9203 for manual and 9202 for auto.

Just scanned ebay, there is a NOS set as a "buy it now" for $29, or you can make the guy an offer, and get an even better deal. Auction #160917044917

I found a pair of the correct RF-16 with ribs and patent numbers for $26.00 shipped on ebay for my 69 Impala and made an offer for $20.00 for the 15" ones Bullitt65 linked to. Still, you would think there would be SOMEBODY making some sort of refill for people who like to keep their original blades. Those black replacements are pretty cheesy looking. I have a set on my 69 Impala, and they don't look like they belong.

There are millions of 60's and 70's cars out there and no one can make just the refills. Seems like a no brainer to me.
381  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Brake hose dates on: July 06, 2013, 08:32:21 AM
This is just on the flexible hoses correct? Probably going to have a run of brake hoses on ebay now.
382  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Wiper blade refills on: July 05, 2013, 05:54:28 PM
Anybody have a source for wiper blade refills for our cars? I need a 15" and a 16" set. There is a whole blade available from Trico but haven't seen just the refills anwhere. I'm afraid waiting for NOS to show up on ebay isn't for me.

So what I have found here so far is RF-15 for the 69 Camaro and the same was used on the 67 Corvette. I was looking on the Paragon website but didn't see a reference to refills though, just the blade with the rubber.

06A 69 for me. It was summertime, Atlanta Georgia, hippie chics, alcohol and some other wild stuff I don't remember. Finally got myself expelled out of catholic school for good that year and went public school after that. I wouldn't see my Z until 2001.
384  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Check out this Trim Tag on: June 24, 2013, 01:52:33 PM
Definitely removed and reinstalled.
385  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Survivor on: June 23, 2013, 06:50:40 AM
Hey guys, can I assume this is a survivor? I bought this last week. Still mostly original, paint, 46,369 miles. Has new exhaust, radiator, different tires, maybe some little parts replaced. I haven't got it home yet to verify what may be missing or replaced, hopefully this week.

That's a damnnn good question. I have one of both. I wonder if it's like the coil bracket for the cowl induction set up. I have one with the notch and one without.

How about the hood insulation pad retainers? Aren't those wrong? Has the green tip dipstick been confirmed to be ok?

Back then, most managers I was aware of, including my dad, and a gentleman I became fond of after he retired where I used to work, all had what I called, as well as others I grew up with, baseball bat mentalities. Those guys were pretty tough cookies.
389  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Dusk Blue Z on ebay 06/20/13 on: June 20, 2013, 10:25:50 AM
That's what I thought. Why was it that the manual trans got smog and the automatics didn't?
390  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Dusk Blue Z on ebay 06/20/13 on: June 20, 2013, 10:22:24 AM
I don't think Norwood would let it go without the smog equipment would they?
