 I have not noticed the car in the upstate. Do you have any police buddies that can run the vin for you???  looks like a nice car.
3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / cam part numbers help??? on: January 31, 2012, 02:01:47 PM
  About 5-6 years ago I bought what was supposed to be a 30-30 Factory NOS cam. Paid $$$ for it and to be honest never really looked at, just had the shortblock rebuilt.My buddy that built the engine pulled it out of the tube and installed it. I finally got around to putting the engine in the car and it ran about 100 miles and took several lobes off. I now believe I've been screwed I set the lash at .028 so it should have been fine. The numbers off the back of the cam are as follows:

  11-25-02             pretty safe bet this is the manufacture date
    955 Huh
   0288           both these are on the cam itself

  at this point My guess is it's actually a 288 hydraulic cam that someone stuck in the GM cardboard sleeve???/ any thoughts???
4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / sold my 68Z back to the original owner on: January 19, 2012, 08:12:57 PM
  I guess I got "burned out" on fooling with the car after all these years. I had several people wanting the car but in the end I sold it several thousand cheaper to the man(and friend) that bought it brand new. It is home at last in Elgin SC.

   I would ask the "dealer" where the speedo cable comes through the firewall. Either under the booster or under the other location.  Thanks

I actually bought a set-up on E-pay just to see how many idiots I can get to tell me that only CA cars had them at the cruise night. The one I bought didn't have a deep groove on it and if I can buy a repop reasonable I will.

   I think I'll go to Wal-Mart and buy a "whisper 2000" so I can hear everything they say from the comfort of my lawn chair Grin

 I need a deep groove smog pulley for my 68. Who has the best price on a reproduction??? Thanks

  If you bought that from a dealer/restoration shop I would pursue a refund. They represented the car as a Z28 so they are liable for the accuracy of the car. And It's a pretty safe bet that they changed the tag to increase the value of the car.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 124379n632993 anyone know this car ??? on: August 22, 2011, 07:54:07 AM
 This car is a 04c X77 71 71 car and there are several things that throw up a red flag. Just curious if anyone else knew of the car.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 124379n632993 anyone know this car ??? on: August 21, 2011, 01:16:40 PM
   This car was at our local cruise night Friday. Very nice car looked like a fresh restoration. Sporting a "real Z" front tag so naturally I had to look very close. There were several things that stood out. Just curious if anyone had any notes or memories. Thanks

well I received the following reply:

Well Ken, are you sure your name isn't Ray... all I can say is you are blind and ignorant. This car is not a fake and if you think it is why don't you make some statements about exactly what you think is fake and then bring your experts, we will bring ours and see who is right. If you want to put your money where your rediculous mouth is we will be more than happy to take any bet. Come on DUDE. There is absolutely NOTHING fake about this car. You could not be more wrong. Where do people like you come from... you read some jackals nonsense in a chatroom and take it for gospel. GET A CLUE before you make rediculous statements like you just made. If you are even REAL call me any time at 949-310-6262 and tell me just what exactly you are referring to. You won't because you have no clue or you are just a fake... hiding behind your anonymous eBay name.

and this is my reply:

Dear smithird,

well my name is not Ray??? My name is as stated Kenneth Shupe and I'll make you a deal you cannot refuse if your're so sure of your car. I will pay for Jerry Macneish to come and certify your car at no charge I'll even pay for his airfare. If it's not real then hey problem solved if it is I'm out my money and I'll post a full apology anywhere you like. Time to "cowboy up" just let meknow and I'll make a few phone calls and make an appointment for the inspection.
yours truly Kenneth Shupe

 I seldom comment on these type auctions but felt compelled to send him a quick note. This type scenario is getting very common.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / I think I scored on E-bay opinions please on: June 30, 2011, 11:47:58 AM
   I know it's not 100% correct for my 1968 Z28 but for the money I think it will at least look correct to most. The guys car was/is a 327 4bbl 12 bolt 68 Chevelle all original, unmolested car with 53K actual miles. I thought it looked to good to pass on. Here is the link to the auction.

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: caliper and booster resto where should I send ?? on: May 25, 2011, 03:37:17 PM
  Jerry called today and I'm going to send them to him since he's always chiming in and helping on this forum.   He can do my calipers as well. Thanks for all the suggestions
