How did his jacking instructions not yellow ? No "spider web" cracking in the stripes ? Top edge of the spoiler flawless. Once again all I can say is wow. I can see were you would be excited going over that car in person.

I agree with Janobyte... the entire car is outstandingly preserved, but the 'freshness' of the jacking instructions didn't look *realistic* to me...  Is there some chance that sheet was replaced over the years??  I'd think like Janobyte, it would be yellowed or stained.. or something..  even if the trunk remained closed all these years (evidenced by the slight 'rust color' stains at places in the trunk floor, etc)..?

A beautiful survivor for sure.. Smiley   I hope the new owner plans to enter it and get it judged in the survivor class soon..  maybe in June?? Smiley
For sure it would not be this June due to other commitments Gary! Knew you would like the COLOR.

I like everything about it... Smiley

I agree with Steve.  The deck definitely shows some 'machine' or other-than-broach marks, but the stamps appear original, and I believe there are faint broach marks still visible as well.

We're all thinking of you and wishing you the best, Danny.   
Keeping a Positive, 'can do' attitude is 90% of the battle, as we know you will!!

Hey!   A jack with 'fenders'... or would that be 'bumpers'??   Smiley

I've never checked into it but I've seen this same HO car and ad for several years. I'm sure that car (and all of the rest of the Camaro's for that matter) at that price are long gone and are a come on and gets them a lot of responce and attention.

I think it's been at least 10 yrs since I first saw that same ad..   Smiley   It's gotta be a SCAM of some kind...

I see we have a problem, don't we Gary? If you have an issue with me take it to PM's please.  Grin

I'm sorry Gary if you took my teasing the wrong way.    I was only attempting to put you onto a couple of clubs and a great fella in Pete who is in your area...   My apologies again..  Sad

28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Delaware Camaro Clubs... on: April 15, 2014, 09:29:49 PM
We've all heard 'GaryC from Delaware' bemoan the fact that 'there's no camaro guys or camaro clubs or junkyards or ....etc ..  in Delaware' before...  Smiley ...

Well today I received the latest issue of the Chevy Classics magazine (from Ecklers).. which used to be 'Classic Chevy World' magazine published by the CCCI before  the *club* was sold and became an official business.   I've been a lifetime member going back to CCCI/CCW days, so I still get the magazine. Smiley    and in this month's edition (May 2014), there was a great article on a blue/white '69 Z28 from Delaware owned by Pete Jamieson of New Castle Delaware!   This article reminded me that I'd met Pete (and his gf Alison) at last year's Camaro Nationals in MD, and that he was from Delaware.. which reminded me of GaryC's moaning in the past .. Smiley

Pete and his girlfriend Alison are both great people, whom I very much enjoyed meeting last June.   I *think* he told me he was a member of this forum, although I don't recall seeing any posts from him in the past.   The magazine article also told the story of how he came by the Z28 (from his uncle)..  which Pete had told me about last June.   If Pete is on here, I Hope he speaks up.. so GaryC knows he is not alone there in Delaware.. Smiley

PS.  the article also mentioned two Camaro clubs which he is involved in..  'Delaware Valley Camaro club'.. and the South Jersey Camaro club.

GaryC (69z28)...  you need to get out more.. Smiley

I think all he would have to do is wrap some cardboard around the base portion (to prevent the wheels from rolling in their cargo bay of the bus), and affix a TAG to the jack with the SHIP TO: and SHIP FROM: information... and I beleive Greyhound would take it..   or at least they used to take stuff like that..
PS. Greyhound does not require that items be totally boxed as most shippers do..

Lucky you I had the same instructions to my machinist, he botched it .... it got somewhat fixed but was preventable

When I rebuilt my Z28 engine (in 1976), I was very afraid to leave the block at the machine shop.. they wanted  to do a 'clean up' cut across the deck...  The machinist told me they would stop before they hit the pad, but I put a piece of duct tape across the pad, and wrote "DO NOT REMOVE" on it...  Smiley   fortunately they didn't machine the pad.. Smiley    I hear so many unfortunate stories, that I actually HATE to leave any of my 'stuff' anywhere with anyone. Smiley .. the 'I'm sorry's' don't undo their damage...
