Interesting!  VR-30 was a Tactical Support Squadron.  Don't think a pilot would buy a 307 3 speed but here is some 1969 history for VR-30:

VR-30 CO HISTORY: CALENDAR YEAR 1969 -- HIGHLIGHTS

1. April 21, 1969. CDR 15. J. RFJ.SRDy USN, became the squadron's
Executive Officer, replacing CDR W. D. CALHOUN, US.

2. May 29, 1969. CDR L. A. SCHOEW, USN, relieved CJR T. PI. BOGART,
USN, as squadron Commanding Officer.

3. CDR G. B. BAIUY, USWR, remained squadron Operations Officer
throughout the year.

June 27, to August 1, 1969, the squadron sent a detachment of two
C-1A aircraft onboard the USS HORNET (CVS-12) to assist in the Apollo
Eleven recovery.

5. August 20, 1969, the squadron was called unon, and responded to a
request to provide an a i r l i f t r e l i e f t o victims of Hurricane "Camille."

6. October 27 to December 3, 1969, the squadroa sent three C-1.A aircraft
as a detachmert onboard the USS HORNET (CVS-12) to assist in the Apollo
Twelve recovery.

7. October 11 to December 24, 1969, C-lA aircraft and pilots were sent
to Danang, Republic of Viet Nam, to supplement the "COD aircraft
shortage due to the grounding of the C-2A aircraft.

Block casting number:  3916323

Bought this engine out of an 84 Surburban (of all things) that was being scrapped yesterday, was running nice , no smoke, no issues.  Is going in my pace car this spring after I freshen it up unless someone is looking for it.

Yet another machine shop horror story.  I feel for the guy, it literally makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.  I think I'm going to compile some of these and make a book, something like the old Tales from the Crypt series.

Cancam, is your car an LA built Camaro?

Most people don't have the ASCII code handy for the double tilde, ≈, which in mathematics, reads as "approximately equal to".  So they use the single, ~, which is available on standard keyboards.  In most cases, the single indicates an approximation and can be read the same way as the double.

Really I do!  Finding an L-78 Pace Car would be awesome!

The above engine as been relisted.  The same seller (martha2626) has listed it with a different partial VIN (19N585452) and engine assembly code (V1212DZ)...     Huh

Notice the stats for the bidder for the previous "sale"?

30-Day Summary
Total bids: 2
Items bid on: 1
Bid activity (%) with this seller: 100%

Huh.  Can't tell much from that pad picture.

Someone one put a fake tag on a Pace Car?  GASP!

You're right, there is a lot of strange stuff going on out there these days!

Here's a pic of some seam sealer on a 69 from a thread on .net - might help a little.  Looks like they were very liberal with the stuff!

Jerry's got a tough job.  He's walking a fine line trying to make a living but some of his customers don't really want to hear the truth.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: barrett jackson las vegas Z-28 on: October 30, 2008, 09:41:39 AM
That would still be wrong wouldn't it?  It would have to read "Authentic Camaro Z/28 Trim Tag, VIN plate, and paperwork, with Restoration Drivetrain and Restoration Body"?
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Tires on a "Driver" --which one??? on: June 26, 2008, 10:49:27 PM
I put on a set of 215-60 R15 T/As on last month.  nice ride, no rub issues, and they look "right".   Mine's a driver too.

Open headers are huge, and he's down near sea level, that makes a big difference.  It might do it.
