Garage Talk / Yenko Chevrolet Dealership info and their ads... :)
« on: February 14, 2017, 03:27:51 AM »
A post was made on another forum ( which detailed a lot of information on the Yenko dealership and some of their ads of the times and their cars, most of which I've never seen before (being from the south)..  but it's very interesting to me, and perhaps to some of you..  :)    Lots of photos also, so I'm just going to post the link...

I think you will all enjoy this very interesting article about the deLorenzo family and their relationship with GM execs that we all revere, as well as some of Tony (jr) racing exploits... :)


If anyone needs a '58' dated 9204 booster ('69 model year) needs restoration... only $40 so far... and ends soon.

Garage Talk / Misrepresentation of automobiles can be $$costly$$...
« on: November 14, 2016, 02:37:32 PM »
Here is a case of a collector car salesman being ordered to pay $110,000 for misrepresentation of a collector car ('GTO)... Maybe spreading such news will help to alleviate some of this in our hobby...

Garage Talk / Veteran's Day!
« on: November 11, 2016, 02:18:25 PM »
We are fortunate enough to have the luxury of enjoying our 'classic cars', at least partially thru the efforts of our military veterans over the years.  Today is Veteran's Day...  Display your FLAG...  ( I Just remembered to put mine out).. :)    USAF ('68-'72)


This is all the information I have on this car...

When I purchased my '69 in April 1976, I learned about the prior owner (before the seller), but when contacting that prior owner who had purchased the car (almost new) for his 16 yr old daughter, I found out almost nothing... he either didn't remember, or didn't care about passing anything along... so after 40 yrs, I tried again earlier this year and found out that 'father' had passed, but found a son who had the same name.   As it turned out, I'd never been able to locate/talk to the daughter owner, but in talking to the son (also a car nut) he told me many stories about his sister having the car, her having a bf who was a car nut and camaro owner, and himself (a Mustang owner) and all their attempts to set up races between all the cars, until their father put a stop to that! :)   But he also remembered where the car had been purchased (local Chevy dealer at the time), AND that the original owner was a young policeman!   So since then, I've been trying to identify a policeman contact who had been on the force in the 1970 timeframe!   Well, this week, I found one, who is also a car nut, and who still consults with the HPD... after talking to him yesterday morning, he spent the day calling a dozen of his old contacts...  he told me last night that he WOULD find the original owner for me!  (although it's a possibility that the orig owner passed away earlier this year)..   I've sent him photos of my car to help 'old memory recollections'.. :)   Besides identifying the original owner (a huge goal of mine for  along time), I'm also holding a tiny hope that one of those owners *might* have hung onto the PTP...  :)

So THIS has been a good weekend, that has me smiling today, in spite of my soreness from setting fence posts yesterday!

and Darrell:  How was that Texas A&M game yesterday??   Another reason to smile?  :)

Do any of you know anything about this car currently for sale at Hendrick Motorsports??

Originality / 1111480 dist looks *real*??
« on: September 23, 2016, 04:21:25 PM »

There are so many restamped distributors out there, it causes us to be skeptical even when they look *real*...  What do you folks think of this one?  it appeared to me to be an untampered original...?

General Discussion / 69 Z28?? white/black with 720 int??
« on: September 22, 2016, 02:26:35 PM »

I think the color combination on this car (as it sits) is striking, but don't think I've ever seen an orange houndstooth interior in a white car...  I doubt the interior is 'the factory one' for this car despite what the cowl plate says (seems to be an August '68 cowl plate) and an Aug '69 VIN...  What do you fellas think?  :)

Garage Talk / Paul Walker's car collection recovered... :)
« on: August 17, 2016, 03:06:18 PM »

I came across this article about the recovery of Paul Walker's car collection this morning; apparently one of Paul's helper/workers 'took' the cars the day after Paul was killed.  Most if not all are now recovered... and I was surprised/delighted to see that one of them is a 'halloween edition' 1969 Z28-RS... (similar to ones owned by myself, Steve Stauger, and perhaps others on this list).. :)

Restoration / Restoring seat backs...?
« on: August 17, 2016, 03:15:14 AM »
My original seats are worn, but since I'm going for 'preservation', rather than restoration, I'm keeping them as they are.   What I've done is bought a second set of buckets, headrests, upholstery, foam, etc for a 'restored set' as well.  I had it all except seat backs, and I didn't want to remove the seat backs from my 'originals', so I bought a set of seat backs from a pace car.

These NEED restoration... there's even some 'deterioration' in places.. I'm not sure whether that's something someone sprayed on the seatbacks in the past, or if that's the vinyl itself?  Can someone who has done a nice restoration on seat backs give me some pointers on the steps to take, and what materials to use to make these old seat backs look good on restored seats?

thanks in advance.. :)
