Bill this guy finally lowered his price on this one. I think he was at $1495.00. He still wants way to much for it though. I offered him $1000.00 for it when I had the Z.

They mention 3 times that it is an L78 car. Not sure what all the fuss is about.
33  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: L89 Camaro At Mecum, Not So.... on: January 27, 2013, 12:29:59 PM
The way I read it they say its a documented L78. Only that it now has L89 heads. . Documented as one of only 4,575 built with the L78 396/375 HP

I dont  see it being a fair deal with all the things needing corrected. If so it would have sold by now. Its been on there for months.

The sad part about all this is that some day nobody will know the difference. Once our generation is gone who will be around to tell whether a car is real or not.

I'd say asking price is 4 times what it's worth

Yep.......these dealers are the worst. I'd say they are the ones responsible for 90% of the fake Z's.

With console was chrome knob since console had shift pattern on it.

Our frost line requirement for footings is 5 feet below grade, since our frost can go down almost that far here in Minnesota. Frost will 'heave' a footing and affect the structure above it, if it moves.

 Note, you dont go 42" below frost line itself... you go 42" below grade...

Guess I'm thinking pole barn type garage which is much cheaper to build. No footer required.

Not sure what the frost line has to do with it unless you are planning on running a water line to it.

From the ad:

" The seats and door panels have been reconditioned and re-dyed, but they are the OEM pieces."

I wouldn't have taken that as meaning Original seat covers. Agree, maybe they should have been clearer, but from a Dealer, I would never expect that. 

If we are going to bring up the stellar reputation of RK I feel I should give my input.

 Great car but not orig. seat covers as stated in their ad. They bought the car from a good friend on mine and he told them he had the seat covers made for him at great cost yet they sold it as orig. seat covers. They were even reminded of it when they were selling it. They might be great guys but that type of sales tactic does not instill trust.


I would take it to be original. From the ad: " Unlike most of the RA IV cars you’ll see this one sports its original code 211 Medium Bright Blue Vinyl (deluxe) interior. Yes, I said original, not a new replacement interior from a kit."

Jerry.....I just remember at the time you seemed concerned there was no VIN on the pad and nothing near oil filter. I recall we did clean the oil filter area but didn't use a wire brush and I think you tried to photo the area with no results. This car has been a hard sell since I sold it as I had seen it listed for some time by another dealer. Then it showed up at RK with a clear VIN when we noticed no sign of one. This concerned me.

Danny,
You didn't have him show the VIN to you when you bought it?
It was also on ebay before that, btw.

The pad stamping hasn't changed the whole time. The only issue is Jerry couldn't find the VIN when he inspected it for you. Which has to be frustrating, but it happens.

Kurt.....I bought the car without seeing it. When I couldn't find it is when I called Jerry in on it. It wasn't a big deal to me since the car was Canadian documented and I got it bought right. I was just trying to further document it by having Jerry look at it. Once I saw it back on eBay with VIN it all seemed to strange.

When the car was sold on ebay before Danny bought it, the car was noted by the seller as having a VIN by the oil filter.
Jerry's report for Danny basically says he couldn't find it. I can't answer for Jerry, but as anyone who has looked for the VIN down there, it can be hard to see.
His second report noted the VIN. Maybe they pulled the motor, don't know.
But what I see is an updated report with confirmed VIN location, not in conflict with the first one. If the VIN suddenly appeared on the deck, then there would obviously be an issue.

Guys,
I'd rather the accusatory tone stopped. If you have a question like this, just send an email to Jerry and ask him to comment here.



OK......here's the deal. I bought it from the guy on eBay. He did state there was a VIN. No pictures! I could not find a VIN. Jerry could not find a VIN. Now there is a VIN. End of story!

Danny,

Just curious... Do you have pictures of the VIN tag and the unstamped pad when you owned the car?  Have you contacted Jerry about this recently?

No pictures. The pad was only stamped with assembly date. The only contact with Jerry was I emailed him to get a copy of report since I gave mine up when I sold the car. At that time I told him about the car being on eBay and now having a VIN stamped by the filter. Also reminded him we found none when he did inspection. He had no comment on it and just sent me the report. I emailed him in late April and he didn't respond until early June.
