Originality / Re: PTB stamps
« on: December 04, 2006, 12:48:43 AM »
According to a Norwood quality control I interviewed back in the late 1980's, PTB stamps designated paint body and trim inspection before the front fenders were installed on the car.  Most of the '68 and '69 cars have the stamps in sight but many of the 67 cars (not all) have the stamps behind the front fenders.  It was about 1987 when many Norwood plant workers transferred to the Baltimore plant due to the closing of Norwood.  Talked with quite a few of the Norwood workers during that time.

Just wanted to let everyone know that Ben's wife, Lana came home from the hospital Monday evening.  The recovery and therapy will be long but the family is confidant that she will have a full recovery.

Randy,

Thanks for the kind words.  I will pass them along.  I am sure that Ben and Lana will enjoy reading all of these posts once Lana recovers from the accident.  I did talk to Ben last night and Lana had just come out of surgery for a broken leg.  There are other injuries but I do not want to post anything else until I know for sure and also make sure that Ben does not mind me keeping the Camaro community informed.

Thanks,

Jerry@CHP

General Discussion / Ben & Lana Wenzel in Automobile Accident
« on: November 24, 2005, 12:20:23 AM »

I just wanted to let all of you know that Ben and Lana Wenzel were in an automobile accident yesterday.  I don't know all of the details right now, only that Ben is okay but Lana is in the hospital.  I will post any new information as it becomes available.  Ben has been like a big brother and mentor to me for many years, please keep both Ben and Lana in your prayers over this Thanksgiving weekend.

For those that don't know Dave and Ben Wenzel, they race a 1967 Z28 in stock eliminator that Ben purchased brand new (only 602 were produced).  The Wenzel Brothers had an incredible 2005 season winning the division and finishing 8th in world points.

General Discussion / Old Reliable 1969 Z28 & Vegas Race Trip
« on: November 06, 2005, 04:33:26 PM »
Mike Strickler was asking me about the 1969 Z28 that his dad drive during the 1969 race season.  I remember that someone in the CRG group mentioned something about the original car being found.  I thought it was Bill.  Can anyone help?

I just got back last night from Las Vegas.  2509 miles from door step to door step.  Made it home in three days driving about 800+ miles a day.  A lot of driving but had a great time.  Ben Wenzel and I beat up on some good running 396 4-speed Novas for the class win in E/Stock and D/Stock.  Everyone was amazed to see a little 302 do so well in class eliminations.
