Yeah, my dealership shreds every other year or so to keep things neat and tidy. We also throw new parts in the dumpster every month. Its all part of business and nobody in our staff gives a crap about old cars or their owners. The last dealer I was at was not very orderly and I watched them finally shred over 60 years of paperwork. It took up a bunch of space in the shop and I wanted so bad to sift though it for 60s stuff but couldn't. Paperwork and other useless items take up space and maintaining unproductive space is expensive. Dealers that made it through the bankruptcy are a different animal now. Everything about GM is far different from what it was even 5 years ago.

Eaton Chevrolet in Washington D.C.
Haven't seen anything for them anywhere. Closed in the 70s I believe but the building is still there.
Don't know where the 68 came from, still have not submitted my info to NCRS.

Love the look of this car, can't beat bias plys on DF rallys. Doesn't look like there's a thing wrong with it. Add some new tires and hoses and I'd drive it like it sits. Hmm...what could I sell for 25k in a jiffy?  Smiley

For the clear lens I've had good luck with just Windex or glass cleaner....is that a bad idea?

Gee-Wizz! Thanks Chick.
Hey, can you ask the owner how much $ to go for a ride? I've never ridden in a 302 Z  Cry. That may certainly be the closest I could get to living a day in 1969.

Happy Easter!!

Danny, I'm not a stamping expert here but it sure looks like what ever was used to stamp the VIN on the block was also used to stamp the trans.
I'm also gonna guess that the difference in depth and alignment of the digits could be caused by worn individual stamps and gang holders. We may have to wait until after the holiday for the experts though.

Happy Easter by the way.

Looks to me like the pad/deck has been cleaned with Scotch Brite and someone is holding a round flashlight of some sort to get better lighting for the picture.

My 68 is a 12D LOS and the dash date is 11 9 67 for comparison. Can post a pic later if needed.

John.

My 68 dash and door panels have similar markings like the ones Mike posted.
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another Tire Question on: March 29, 2014, 08:08:59 AM
I'm running 215 70 15 on my 68 and I love the look, but I like a stock skinny tire look.
I currently have some 235 60 15 on a 1979 Z28 and I think they look too short...Different car and body though for sure.
