Not mine, I just was comparing it to my car which is almost identical, except mine is blue/blue.

Not often you find a car where the owner seems to have saved everything like this one.
Did the dealer always take a POP imprint when the car was in for service, or did this car have a lot of warranty work done?



Perhaps CRG can use some of these docs for their files. They all look legit to me. What do you guys think, legit or not?

Here is another article with some pictures of his collection. I do not see the Green Z in any of the pictures (including backgrounds).

http://www.autoevolution.com/news/ron-prattes-entire-car-collection-will-be-auctioned-in-2015-photo-gallery-81949.html

Is his collection open to public viewing?

Interesting how the article comments on how he cashed out of the home building market at just the right time. I hope his timing of cashing out of the car market doesn't follow the same course!

It will be interesting to see the net profit (or loss) of his collection over the years.

Hi

i have a question , when i look at the AIM UPC 14 for my 67 rear bumper , the screw at the corner is located at the top of the bumper. but on my export model the screw is below the bumper Huh?

where are yours??? is it possible that the export model have a special bumper ? or a mistake in the AIM?



thanks

The rear bumper has a drawing error in the 1967 and 1968 assembly manual. It is correctly drawn in the 1969 version.

Good times for sure. First gens were well represented. We had 2 67 rs/ss, a 6 cyl 68 and my 69 Z all pretty much lined up together and there was probably at least 20 or 25 in total at the show.


Hey, I stopped and looked at hose cars! I bet you guys where standing right there and I missed the shirts. Next time I will look for CRG or other Camaro enthusiast shirts.

It was a good show, however they changed the spectator parking and it took forever for me to get parked. The town has a PA system and during the walk from parking to main street I could hear the typical car show Doo Wop music playing on it. I was pleasantly surprised by the various live music acts playing mostly rock instead of the doo wop. Cool

It is normal to have this slight skew in the drive shaft because the pinion is not centered in the rear end.

I am not sure why they thought it would be a good idea to start and drive the car before thoroughly checking it out, but they probably won't try that a second time. Look at the massive oil leak when they drive off. Probably shut it off just in time before running dry.
Don't these cars have a low oil pressure warning?

Never seen that, but did they actually charge extra for that?

It seems it would pay for itself due to clause #2 that requires you to pay full price for inspection, oil change, and prescribed maintenance every 60 days (regardless of mileage)!

That, and clause #7 where they can cancel anytime with 30 days notice really makes this just about a worthless gimmick.

Nice looking car.  The engine numbers are certainly inline with what is expected to be original. Just no proof that it is. Sometimes that's the best you can do.

I understand how some people insist on having the original engine when the most common first question asked at a car show is always "is it numbers matching" even when that person has no real idea what they are looking at. Why is it so important to you on a non high HP car? The value in this car is that the top goes down and it's a sharp looking blue!

I see the buyer paid 39,960 with fees at BJ in 2005, but that also means the seller sold it for ~32,900.

Also looks like it also sold at another auction just before BJ where the current owner bought it. Perhaps a dealer/flipper. What do you think it's worth today?

Auction has 42 watchers on ebay.

Probably 42 guys with old ME blocks taking up space in the garage and hoping there is good market for them.

The source I'm getting my imformation is very knowledgeable and I had him restate the information that was to be provided. I believe these GM records are from a different dept/source from where the corvette records were obtained. 

That would be fantastic. It always seems like the Corvette is GM's favorite so for Camaro owners to get a more detailed report would be quite an accomplishment.

Ragtop was this what you got for $50.00?

It's not mine, but I have seen several Corvette NCRS shipping reports and they all look like this.

68 Rag:

 I was given the info from an NCRS member who is involved with the program. BTW the wholesale invoice # and body # may be one in the same. 

He may be misinformed. Can he provide you with an example Corvette document that shows more information than this?

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: So you think you have a Dana, Nickey,Berger Baldwin, etc...? on: January 22, 2014, 12:23:40 PM
My understanding is that the documentation being released will not identify options, but will provide dealer with zone# , wholesale invoice # and body #. Perhaps more information will be available or found in the future but that is what I've been told will be provided on the April launch date.

Is your source an insider at GM or just a guy who heard from a guy who read it on the internet?

I ask because that is different information than what is stated in the OP and in the link provided to the service. It says nothing about wholesale invoice # and body #.
