Non-driver claim = because the insurance covers the car, not the driver, in this case...

Question re original tag frames:

I have the (an?) original tag frame that was on my car since before 1976 that I assume is original, BUT it's fairly pitted.   The tag frame was a cheap chrome it appeared, and then had a background color (black), and a 'name' color (white) painted on it.   It doesn't look bad, but it would look much nicer if it was rechromed and repainted.. Smiley

My question is... Should I restore the tag frame? or leave it as is??

Well if you are presenting your car as original mostly unrestored, why would you restore the frame??
The tag frame didn't come from Chevrolet....   dealer 'add on'.... doesn't count.. Smiley
it has perfect patina just the way it is. I would just use some 0000 fine steel wool on the chrome, and run it as is.  Cool

All depends on who is looking at it and the standards they go by...

So do Yenko decals count? Dealer add on?

Steve, I think it looks great! The car and the garage!  Nice car! Takes me back....

First, check the voltage to you headlights, etc.  May be "weak" connection.  Read THIS. Replies 5 & 6 tell it all about headlight connections.
I've got my T3s in a box and halogens on the driver car.  But first I cleaned every possible connection.

My great uncle was the sales manager for a Chevy dealer back in the day.  A whole lot of his job was figuring out what would sell and what car would bring a maximum profit.  He urged his sales personnel to sell what was on the lot.  If a car sat in the inventory for very long, he would push to get it sold at the weekly sales meeting, offer an incentive to get it sold, or try to trade it off to another dealer.

Please post some pre-restoration pics for us.  You've got my attention!

The NOMAD sold for $44k plus buyer's fee.
I did not see it go across the block, but I did see it... Made my mouth water.  Actually not bad for a nice Nomad.
Prices are now online.

...And can you believe a 68 vert for $20k.  It's a 327/210, but that's a good buy for any convertible.

Hey DW, that green 68 Z brought $49k.

By clicking the CRG logo in the upper right hand corner of the forum page, it will take you to the Home Page for CRG.  There you can find the links to the reports, etc.

The answer to your question is "sort of".  Look HERE, and you will find 3912597 listed as the left frame mount bracket for a 67-68 396.

It's really not that hard. It just takes practice and a great source like CRG!
"Give a man the decode... teach him how to decode..." you get the picture!

And then there is my favorite Chevy dealer sign in LA, which dates all the way back to the fifties.
