I would make sure you get a good vinyl top. Most that you see are too padded.

Apparently you think because it is a forum you can post whatever you want. Welcome to reality.

Be careful with your comments about windshield wipers.
I just got censored over on the Yenko site for making a "windshield wiper delete car" comment, about a blue 69 Z with no windshield wipers.
Apparently the word "forum" is more of a loosely used term, a senior Pooh-Bah member felt it necessary to save the owner any friendly humor, and delete my comments.
 Lips Sealed

My warning to you may get me kicked off the CRG, not sure of his influence on our site.

Either that or he will see to it that more of my ideas and views are censured and are not part of the discussion.

Hopefully it is just limited to me, I would hate to find this type of tampering with posts is the norm.
 Undecided

Your post was not tampered with over at Yenko.net. It was removed and your were sent a message that you apparently ignored because you apparently posted again. Your post was then edited. The for sale section is for people to place their cars for sale. When posting they don't really want your kind of comments. For awhile we had disabled the reply ability in order to prevent your type of comment. People asked that it be turned back on and we did with the understanding that it is not a place to come and pick someones car apart. If there is something that you know is fraudulent we want to know but we don't want comments like "too much money" Crappy paint" etc.  Your wiper arm comment was not needed. Sorry if you felt so disrespected you had to come over here and whine about it. If you don't get it then I guess you don't get it.

excerpt from the SYC thread that tells what happened. This was posted by Chuck Sharin. He owned the car and parted it out

To whom may be interested, I call it an inept, young drag racer who wanted to have his newly built 69 Camaro C/SM drag racer a titled WA state car. The race car was never going to be insured, street driven or inspected.

I was the 2nd and LAST owner of the real #27 ZL-1, having bought it from Alan Green's service mgr, Dic Tutino in or around 1975. I was the one who parted the real #27 out in 1976.

I started the new C/SM car with a untitled junk yard 69 Camaro body shell. I moved the 609965 VIN tag from the #27 Body shell to the "new" C/SM body shell. Was this legal and correct ? NO......,however it was never my intent to to build or recreated anything and fraudulently misrepresent it.

ALL the misc sheetmetal, interior, frame, etc etc from #27 ZL-1 were used on the "new" C/SM car. along with the xfered 609965 VIN tag. I sold the turnkey C/SM race car around 1981 to Alan Martin Chevrolet in Bremerton, WA. Subequently Jim Brunz, Dave Barcelon have owned the C/SM car and it remains in WA state to this day, with all those ORIGINAL #27 ZL-1 parts.

After I sold the C/SM, it was "someone" else who (once again) removed the 609965 VIN tag and along with the 609965 WASH State title sold it to "whomever" had the current "#27" created. The present day "#27" has NOT one assy part that was part of the OEM #27 with the exception of that xfered 609965 VIN tag

I am not going to let some bodies power and popularity, keep me from revealing the truth. I understand I am a unpopular "nobody" from Seattle, whose 15 minutes of fame was over 30 years ago at Seattle Int'l Raceway (or Pacific Raceway back then)..........but the truth remains .............

Some info on the details on the above carb from a expert on Quadrajets.

The choke blade and secondary air doors should be clear (silver), not yellow chromate. The only air doors Iíve ever seen that were yellow chromated were on some Pontiac carbs, and even then it appears to be hit-or-miss.
 
All of the screws should be black (black chromate was originally used I believe). The screws holding the air doors & choke blade on are the wrong style of screw as well.
 
Both primary & secondary throttle shafts (just the shafts, not the entire assembly) were originally coated in green Teflon before the operator mechanisms were peened on. Since itís not feasible to disassemble the operator mechanisms from the shafts, they are typically stripped and plated in zinc (or cad, depending on whoís working on it) and subsequently yellow chromated.
 
Many of the small wire links (choke rod, pump arm rod, etc.) were originally clear, not yellow chromate. The idle adjuster screw is usually clear as are most of the external misc. springs. Same for the idle mixture screws & springs.
 
The big white nylon gasket behind the inlet fitting is a sign that the threads were heli-coiled. Most often the repair isnít square to the original threads which causes the inlet fitting to leak around the perimeter since the (repaired) threads are no longer parallel to the sealing surface. The Teflon gasket compensates for some mis-alignment and helps seal the inlet fitting. HIC covers can be clear or yellow

Interesting to note that the vin stamped on the trans is one digit off of the cars vin.

Thanks again Roy. This is a great service.

Sometimes it is nicer to just keep your opinion to yourself. I think this was one of those times.

No someone else got those. I actually went in halves on the Boss with a friend but when it got here I fell in love with it and bought his half from him. It ran great and just the opposite of what everyone else says. They are usually dogs off the line. This one fried the tires probably easier than any other stock musclecar I have ever owned.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Supposedly 302 Mustang 'Barn Find' on: January 08, 2014, 02:20:20 AM
I could hardly drive the Boss 429. I had to sit sideways to work the clutch or my knee would get jammed between the steering wheel and door panel. No legroom at all. Calypso Coral and I think I sold it for 33K. It came from a pawn shop in Seattle. A guy with a trust fund would burn thru his yearly allowance, pawn stuff he bought and never come back for it. He had pawned a Shelby, The Boss and a Helicopter.

Makes me remember back to when I had a nicely restored Boss 429. I sold it to a fireman that lives about 50 miles away. Last time I saw it at a show the story is he bought it out of a barn on a farm. The "barn" was the metal building at my buddies farm where I stored my collector cars.

The 1100 mile 70Z28 I had sat for 36 years and the only thing done was the orig owner removed the battery. Tires did not go flat and the orig owner and his brother both said on camera that they don't think they ever even added air to them. They just didn't go flat. They are still like new. Paint looks killer and the interior had no cobwebs. It was stored in a shop in their Chicago backyard.
