If any one cares to know...Just got the OK to get the truck fixed, $1980.00 less my deductible. I think the State Farm adjuster called it a non-driver claim? Going to replace the panel. Chevy dealer/collision tech says it's kind of 'iffy' either way to fix or replace the panel based on where the damage is. The tech says it looks like an SUV with a rear tire on the tailgate hit it or something high enough that had some kind of plastic trim on it.

It just amazes me the money folks will spend on little things. I was never rich so I'm just going to do without even if I do have a Z28. That's half a house payment for me.

Cheesy yup ,4 years old. Has more sense ; than his 27yo parents (older boy) Grin  Figure he'll help grandpa take care of the park ,er ,yard in a few years.

Have a 16 year old granddaughter, a Paris Hilton type, that lives with us because her mom can't deal with her. Yeah, she has more sense then her mom, my daughter, but I just can't get her to cut the grass yet...but she is begging to drive the car on the farm though.

Got any grandkids yet? Try dealing with 7 of them 24/7 from 6 to 16 and mostly girls. I think I drove my Z for the first time in 2 years a few weekends ago. My sons girl friend had to have a ride in it at 3 am after she had a few. If you add her kids, triplets, that's 10 between 6 and 16. I have to run and hide just to get on the computer to get attention from you car guys here.

So a black stripe car would have the same technique a white stripe car had, at least for a Norwood car anyway.
67  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Owners manual plastic bag on: May 24, 2014, 11:50:02 AM
Interesting on the printed dates. I'm gonna guess the bags weren't printed or revised? as much as the printed revisions of the manuals. So 'Jan' your bag is almost 2 years older than the car. I wonder if the 3-19-68 is fine for my June 69 car. Need more owners to check in with what they have with their cars.
68  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Owners manual plastic bag on: May 24, 2014, 11:28:48 AM
Just the bag date will be fine. 1966? Does it have the square head key or the the octagon head key on the bag? Didn't early 68's use the same key as 67's and then change over to the square head? or was 69 the first year for the square head key. The 3-19-68 bag I have has a square head key on it. Gonna check that out and get back.


I found what I was looking for on the actual keys but so far nothing on the key printed on the poly bags and dates. 67 and 68 used similar keys and 69 was the first year for the new square head key. Kind of knew that already but was wondering if there as a transition involved or not.
69  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Owners manual plastic bag on: May 23, 2014, 11:14:58 PM
Hey guys, I'm back again with another question...Were the plastic bags the owners manuals were in printed the same date as the owners manual? I had neither when I bought my Z but have since bought the correct dated manual. The plastic bag is dated 3-19-68 though whereas the manual is dated April 69 Third Edition for my 06A car. Anybody have their original bag still that can look? I think there were 3 versions of the manual but was wondering about the bag.

Original poster does, I'm merely curious. White stripes are referenced mostly but never black.
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 Cowl on: May 20, 2014, 08:27:55 PM
I'm wondering if a black striped car went thru the same process as the white striped cars. So far the white stripe method is all anyone shows.
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 Cowl on: May 18, 2014, 01:02:42 AM
Is this what you are wanting? Hope this helps.

I think the OP is asking about the top of the cowl area underneath the cowl panel. The white seems to be what is discussed the most, nothing has been discussed about how the black was applied on a black striped car. Also, my question to add is if the wiper transmission was installed before or after paint. My car has been repainted 3 times from what I can tell but the wiper trans still has no paint on it.
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Dealer versus Customer Order on: May 17, 2014, 02:18:00 PM
I have always been curious about that myself. I haven't sent in for the NCRS yet on my Z and all I know about my Z so far is that it came from Elkton, Maryland. From what I get so far is that all cars are built to order whether from what a customer wants to what the dealer orders for the public. So a dealer could order whatever he wanted just to get cars on the lot to bring in the walk in customers? I bet somebody was pretty busy at the dealer checking boxes on order forms or was that not the way it was done? I've never gone to a dealer and ordered a new car, just bought one off the lot so I had no clue how it was done.
74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z28 Cowl on: May 15, 2014, 11:49:16 PM
There is nothing there about what the cowl area looks like with black stripes. I'm kind of curious myself since I have about 3 repaints on my Cortez Silver with black stripes car. I'm sure mine is no longer correct.
75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Trim Tag 69 Z10 on: May 15, 2014, 12:06:36 PM
This Z-10 was a roller when I got it (no eng. trans) Needs both full quarters and some skin grafts in windshield area.  Has 12bolt rearend and front discs. I think its real deal. Have other projects ahead, 1 is solid axle Vette  and other 1st gen Camaros   All it takes is time and money  right?

And a dedication to the hobby. I have no money, and very little time, but the dedication and the pursuit of knowledge is very much still there.


Amen to that brother!!!
