General Discussion / Do these stamps and tag look ok
« on: December 08, 2010, 08:26:56 PM »
This car is for sale right down the road from me. My friend is interested. I think it's a restamp in more ways than one. Maybe the cowl tag is ok. I just wanna know yes or no on each. Don't have to tell me what's wrong with them. Unless ya want......Danny

Well, the coil was correct, so I bought the car.....NOT!! Mopar346 good one eh......Thanx KurtS for the knowledge as always. Anybody else wanna add 2 cents to the mix I'll take it...Danny

I got somebody questioning my knowledge and I am starting to wonder myself.

Block Casting Date is.......... 2/11/69
Block Build Date is..............2/24/69 VO224DZ 
Car is 4th week of Feb. 69  O2D
X33 Norwood car.
Body sequence # 260151

So if the car is the 4th week... lets say the 28th. The last day of the month. And the assembly of the block is the 24th.  He is saying it's to close with only 3 or 4 days in between. And that it should be a 388 block, not a 618. I was always told that under 10 days is ok. And that under 7 days is even better. Because no train ride to Van Nuys. Right???? But what about the block Cast number??.......Danny

Well guys, I HAD to chime back in......As far as the quarters replaced thing..he told me a bunch of things that convinced me. The car is just NOT the same. If will never be the same. You get the best body guy in the world to do the work. Once it's all cut to hell. It's just that.. But of course, anybody could do what they want. I passed on that Z/28 with a matching drive train, but that's what I wanted to do. It's all a personal thing really.

 As far as asking too many questions, it sure wouldn't work for us. Cause I ask at least 50 to 100. I'm not going to drop 60 or 70K without knowing EVERYTHING I can. You would be a fool not to. That's for guys with more money than brains. And there is tons of them out there. I start at the bottom and work my way up. What is the codes on ALL 5 wheels? When was the last time you did a brake inspection, packed the wheel bearings?? Turn the drums or rotors?? What did they mic out at? And then I go nuts from there. All the way up to the drip rail molding on an X-33. Is it real molding or aftermarket. Anyway. Good luck. Like the guys said, if ya don't care then buy it and enjoy it. And when the bearings heat up and freeze, you will think of me....ha ha....Danny

wubomber...well in my opinion that's a WIDE open question. Of course anything is worth what somebody wants to pay for it. So let me just throw ya some things.

Is it a real SS car or was the SS package added? Does he have the original hood? Is that special ducted hood that is on it now an original hood or after market? Was it always a V-8 car or is it a converted six banger? Is the VIN stamped on the Trans? Is the rear-end original? Do you care if it is a numbers matching car? Again IMO having the wrong engine in it drops the value 5 to 7K or MORE. But if it is a good running semi-fresh engine then maybe you are ok with that. I am a numbers guy and would not even look twice. Do the hidden VIN's match the title of the car? Are you going to show it at big time shows? Or even small town shows with no real wants for trophies? Paint is 7 years old, that usually means 10 years!! Complete paint jobs go for about 15K depending on where you live. Or you can save some $ if you don't have to do the underhood--Jams--trunk areas. AGAIN, do you care. Is this just a runner to have a nice old Camaro in pretty nice shape to cruise around? How far is it from you? Get a shipping quote. I use DAS shipping. It just never ends, I could go on and on. Ya gotta go see it and drive it no matter what. Unless you got 20K laying around and don't care. Do a compression test on it, takes less than an hour and tells ya alot. Try to figure out what you think it needs and figure in all those costs. It's a good bet that it is not a rust bucket due to the Cali upringing, so that's a good sign. Crawl in the trunk and look for original quarter panels. An OLD OLD body shop guy told me many years ago....NEVER buy a car that has had its quarters replaced. No matter what anybody tells ya they are never the same. I just had a chance to buy a 69' Z/28 all original with a very fair price tag, but you guested it, quarters replaced so I passed. THAT'S just me. If you don't give a crap about anything I said and you can't wait to do a power brake in it, then over him 14K. Then if you really want it 17K. WAY to hard to estimate a price without seeing it. Good Luck!...........Danny

Let me see if I can get this picture attachment to work. Here is some shots of the wheels I was talking about. Dated 1/28/69. I took some shots through a magnifying glass. Works great, and gets right into the grain. Anyway, not a big deal, just realized I have now seen dates for the 26th, 27th, and 28th of Jan. 69' .......Danny

General Discussion / 1969 "YH" Wheel Dates
« on: August 04, 2010, 05:48:31 AM »
Well I picked up a couple "YH" wheels this morning. I keep seeing different dates. But I was told that there is only so many batches made each month. And you can't get dates for each day of the month. These wheels seem to be dated  K19  1  28   "YH". I worked on them for a long time trying to make out the dates. I remember someone telling me that they only made batches a couple times a month. These are for sure not restamps. I took many pictures and some through a magnifying glass. I wish I could post them. Maybe some one could offer to post them for me if I email some to them. But just wanted to see what everyone thought. I have seen 1/26/69. But never seen 1/28/69. Anybody else see or have any that date?....Danny

General Discussion / Drag's at Infineon Raceway Friday 7/16/10

Hey guys, what a great night last night at the old Sears Point Raceway here in Sonoma. There was FIVE records broken during last nights Qualifying. SUPER track conditions and weather. Starting with Larry Dixon running a 317.79 MPH in Top Fuel. That was 3.839 seconds. That was cool to see as I had reserve seats  very close. Ear Plugs ALMOST didn't do the trick. Then Jack Beckman ran a 4.063 at 315.56 MPH in his funny car. And Allen Johnson in Pro Stock ran a 6.545 at 201.77 MPH! Then they had some Camaro's, a GTX, Duster, Studebaker truck, 70' Chevelle...... and about 20 other nostalgia runs. They were running some 10 second to 13 second times. Too much fun for sure as it's right down the road from my house. Hey Jerry M., I didn't see your car, where were ya?.....Danny

Shouldn't the gears be lined up straighter and not so curved? I thought M-22's had way different gear angles. What do I know....Danny

Sorry about that guys. I didn't even think of THAT happening. But of course we all know it does. Well I'll learn more another time........Danny
