If I'm searching for Z28 parts..  all is does is PEEVE me to have to wade thru all the NON-Z28 ads with Z28 in the listing... No way would I buy anything from people who do that....  Yes, they get exposure, but it's BAD exposure IMO... and makes me think they think lying in selling is OK...

Your VIN indicates late Feb production completion, so a Dec rear is possibly/probably the original.

Kurt, Gary was referring to Kevin's comment about this stash of parts that I started this thread about. Unless I missed something.Gary what say you?

I've said what I wanted to say, Vince..  go back and re read it....  Smiley

Ok lets follow that line of thinking, does anyone know of a rallye green 69 camaro super sport that was taken in the last 5 to 10 years? Without a VIN it's going to be hard to prove,but if someone comes up missing a RG 69 then this might have legs.

The owner of this car stated he stripped the car for sandblasting the hull..   but after blasting, the hull was too far gone, which seemed like a reasonable story to me.   This type of situation is *ideal* for the complete repro body that is available from year one and others, and a question I would have had for the seller.   I would never accuse any seller of being a 'stripper' (without much more information than is available, and I don't think Bullitt intended that either; he was only saying a buyer should be wary ..).   In the situation I referenced, a good 'body' was sitting there that all the parts had come from, and the parts were 'too cheap'..  which definitely made me wary, and caused me to walk!

Call me a naysayer, but when I see a big pile of parts that all are painted the same and could all be from one car, my suspicious mind thinks a theft and strip. Hopefully that is not the case! 

I've seen that before also, Kevin....   and after examining the parts (engine, trans,etc)..  him saying they were all good.  and seeing a good bohy hull there also (for an Impala SS), I decided to walk...  in that particular case, it seemed no doubt that he was stripping cars... I stopped short of alerting law enforcement, but I did think about it..  and wonder still if I should have...
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO PARTS WHAT ARE THEY WORTH? on: March 20, 2015, 11:40:22 PM
I sent him an email asking what happened to the body hull...  "What happened to the body hull?  It almost looks like you have everything off it laying there?"

His response:  "Body, after I sand blasted it, was all rusted out. Sent it to the scrap yard. Kept most everything else plus I bought a lot of new parts. Jeff"

So that appears (as it looked in the photo).. that he had all other parts to the car....  a great buy for someone nearby..  IMO....
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO PARTS WHAT ARE THEY WORTH? on: March 20, 2015, 12:13:30 PM
Better take a look at what is all there.  His price is not a steal but he is not on the moon either.

http://bellingham.craigslist.org/pts/4933723690.html

Sounds/looks like almost an entire car!   if I were in that area, I'd be heading that way with my truck... and $$..   Smiley    Someone building a '69 will probably make double that on parts for their own car, and probably sell the unneeded parts for more than his asking price..
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: More carburetion! is that your answer? :) on: March 19, 2015, 10:34:21 PM
Yes, that could be good... or bad....    You'd have to rely on Ebay/Paypal to get recompensed if it weren't what was promised....
personally, besides the 'appearance' of the cross ram..  I don't care for them..    a single four barrel dumps in too much fuel unless it's set up very well *S*
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: CE coded warranty engines on: March 19, 2015, 03:41:03 PM
And even if you knew the dealership and the date they did it, they still wouldn't have the records for that far back, and even if they did.. they wouldn't look for them for you....   Smiley
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / More carburetion! is that your answer? :) on: March 19, 2015, 08:28:58 AM
OK guys..  if your Camaro isn't sucking up enough fuel to suit you, here is an answer.. Smiley

supposedly original Cross ram with replacement carbs...  only $2500..   and no, I do not know the seller, nor am I proposing you buy this!  Smiley

If I come across a nice Nova of that vintage (any color), and it's priced in my budget, I'm going to buy it.. Smiley   
If it's out of my budget, I'll give you a buzz.. Smiley
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Caveat Emptor on: March 17, 2015, 08:43:13 PM
There must be a market for fake Z28's - seems like most advertised have tag, stamp or casting number issues Huh...and this car has 19 bids?

Definitely looks nice enough though.

Yep..  quite a market, but the supply seems to be keeping up with demand.  Smiley

Len, good to see your Z finally made it as your avatar..lol   Cheesy  I believe this guy is exactly like the for mentioned.  A good guy who had/has a passion for the very same thing that we do and time is "Creeping up".  We have all heard someone say "one day" and before you know it that day came and went.  Many of these so-called "Hoarders" lived and was raised thru the depression era.  They simply never threw thing away, they worked to hard to get it.  They'd rather let something deteriorate/rust away before they let some snot nose have it because he can.  I myself was kinda raised like that from parents who went thru that era. 

Case in point:  I just recently sold my '79 Brown w/doeskin interior Corvette this past August (2014) .  I had saved every penny (literally) from the age of 16 and purchased it when I was 19 (1984).  To me the vette was still a virgin with only 31K miles and just barely 5 yrs old.  By age 20 I purchased a beater (yeahhh... a '78 Pinto)  Grin   just so I didn't have to drive it as my only driver.  Fast forward 30 yrs, the vette sat stored away almost as bad as the Camaro pics at the beginning.   I swore up and down that "one day" I'll bring it back to it's glory days.   That day never came and I sold it, hesitantly to 2 snot nose kids who said they wanted to buy, fix, paint and flip.  Well I received a call back in Feb from Progressive insurance.  The car was found at the bottom of a Florida canal and was now the newest topic of an insurance fraud case.  I was asked by Progressive if I would mind looking at the car to verify stuff about it.  It drew a tear as I walked up on it.  Cry   In short.. I busted my a$$ for that baby and it didn't deserve that !

Sometimes I can't blame these guys for not ever selling,  I get it.  We all have something that money can't buy !  and theirs is their cars.

Great post Darrell, which I think captures WHY a lot of us prefer to keep an old car, even if we don't have time or money to give it it's due...  we prefer that to, after selling it, seeing it jacked up, hacked up, painted purple, ..  etc..  or at the bottom of a canal due to $insurance$...

PS.  I'll be 67 this year, and I've begun a long process of 'selling off' excess parts & cars that I've had for up to 35 yrs in some cases.  I was feeling good about my progress in 'curing my disease'...  I only hope I don't suffer a relapse after hearing of your Corvette!   Smiley
