This POP is still attached to the original booklet. It has the original owner info tape. ... Danny

I too feel that is the answer. When the second owner purchased the car, they went to their local Chevrolet dealership to have the 5/50 "Application for Transfer of Warranty" sheet for the warranty balance transferred into their name. The new plate showed up in the mail with a small directions sheet. The sheet shows you how to cut part of the back cover away and install the new plate. No longer any reason to have the original owner info on YOUR plate. I am in the process of selling some cars that have the plain plate. I purchased a '68 Z/28 not too long ago. It actually came with the ORIGINAL POP with the original owner info. It has the Dyna Tab tape. Which would mean the second owner did not transfer warranty in his name. Danny

I know it can get very difficult to identify some blocks. I am trying to figure this one out.

  Block Casting #3892657
  Block Date K116 - Jan 11th, 1966?
  Front Pad Stamp V1122KM Flint, November 22nd?
  Looks like it decodes out as 1 of 3 blocks.

  1967   3892657   302   290   290   2   Z-28, small journal
  1967   3892657   327   210   350   2   car & truck
  1967   3892657   350   295   295   2   Camaro

 Is it the Z/28 block because of the " V" for Flint High Performance Engine Building Plant? Or could it be the 295 HP 350? Danny

 I saw that hanging way down. Didn't know you could do that bad of a job. I have never done it, but it sure looked wrong to me.

109 Beautiful clear pictures from any distance. BUT WAIT... The front pad picture is SUPER blurry! And covered in 10 coats or more of paint. Funny watching these dealers sell a classic car. Seems like a pretty nice car. Already bid to 75K.  ... Danny

I know the convertible arm is 1" shorter than hard top. At least in '67 & '68. Danny

I have survivor cars with 2 and with 1. I feel some installers got lazy and only did one side. And said to themselves, that's good, that will work. And went to the next one.

As far as removing it because it didn't come from the factory that way.... MCACN Vintage Certification does NOT subtract judging points if in place. I talked to Steve S about it, and he said he feels it is part of Chevrolet. Sure, it came later, but Chevrolet did it, developed it, sent the letter, and maybe they even did all the installs. I don't know if any of the work was farmed out. Maybe someone knows... So basically, overall, it's    "CHEVROLET"

 NOW... we move to Mr. Jerry M   Who I have great respect.  I asked Jerry; he feels since it did NOT come on the car from NEW, that it shouldn't be on the car. At least during HIS judging. Of course, it can be put back on after inspection.

So there ya have it. 2 schools of thought on the subject. I have 2 cars missing both sides. I bought them and have to get them installed before they go up for sale. I have original dated letters and the envelopes they were sent in. So I want to do it.

Anyone remember this insignia on the back center panel of a car? It would have been raised WAY UP with big Crager's with slicks on the back. This would be in the West Allis Wisconsin and surrounding area in the 70's. Also had "Born to Be Wild" on the rear quarters. ... Danny

 I did thanx. I had glanced at that before. There were no numbers that seem to line up with my stuff exactly. It's a nice clean unit that may be ok to just detail clean, lube-up and install. Nice Tee handle with minor flaws. The car it came out of did not run. And had been sitting since the early 70's. So, I can't say it shifts well. I want to sell it, so maybe I will try CL for a few hundred bucks and see what happens. Anybody else have info, maybe the era, please chine in.    Danny
