No projects for me right now. But that '68 is 98.7 miles away from my house. Any body closer than that?... Danny

No projects for me right now. I am still working on getting some of those old cars. That '69 has approx. 26 words in the description. If that was my car it would be at least 1000!  Grin  ... Danny

I can honestly say that I wanted this car more than mine... AT THE TIME...  Wink Wink    NOW that I have the BY car I love it and all it is  Grin  The girlfriend almost bought the blue one, but heard me talk shop about documentation. Or should I say "lack of".. Anyway, good luck, I hope it checks out and you can scoop it up. Danny

This car was for sale at TC for a while by a member for 35K. I was looking at it for about a year... at the same time my butternut yellow popped up with all that I wanted in documentation. The blue one was priced 35K. And as far as I know it has no POP. Just his finger pointing to a baby z/28 written in a box on a sheet. I remember him saying it is all matching. But I steered away... without a build sheet, window sticker, protection plan booklet, and POP it's just too hard to determine on a '68. Car was then on eBay and just ended a few days ago and reached 32K. I would for sure have it verified by a professional top to bottom... Danny

I would be happy to just be able to afford ONE of those cars. I just bought an original $26 4 dimple spark arrestor for my car and was pretty happy. Must be nice, good for him. Funny how at 6:21 the golf ball is clearly NOT going in the hole, so they cut and then show the ball dropping in the hole by itself.  Wink  Pretty funny stuff.. D

That's starting to look good. Now DO NOT use a screwdriver or any chisel type tool to finish cleaning the pad area. Not even a hard bristle brush.Use carb cleaner or brakleen and a rag and get the rest of the paint off. ALL od the paint. Then take close-up pictures, as close as you can get that are CLEAR, showing the actual original broaching of the block surface. Like my stamp below. And soon you will have your answer... Danny

I say make sure he CALLS to see if it is there. THEN make a trip out and get it, or build a crate and have it shipped home. Then fly back home and wait for it. I have seen to many times in my life that something was in a certain location for 30 or 40 years. We go to get it and it got dumped or sold for scrap THE DAY BEFORE!! You have to act NOW!!  Have him call the guy, or you call him tom morning... D

Got to the other side of the hood. It needs one more treatment in 2 or 3 patch areas. But I think the hood and top of fenders are just about done..

   Question/Opinions wanted... No. 1 or No. 2 ?

 No. 1   I was going to leave the cowl panel as is, to show a before and after. Tell people the whole car used to look like that. Stupid idea, cause everybody knows what it probably use to look like so just pull it and treat it?

 No. 2   Cool idea for now to show people how I treated it with CLR and Scotchbrite and steel wool. And wow, what a difference from before. Then tell the stories of the treatments? ... Danny

Survivor is such a wide open term now that it's a wash. You just have to take it, analyze it, and make your own assumptions and decisions. I by no means would call this a survivor. Yes it is still HERE, but it's had some MAJOR body repair and panel replacement. Not to mention a couple paint jobs. Along with other changes along the way. I would rather pay 10K less and have the original paint and rot to see it myself. Then I get my own visual and make the repairs. Who knows what else is incorrect. We all know that just a carb, smog setup, Alternator, and a distributor can set ya back 6 thousand dollars! Even if I had the money I would pass... Just my 2 or 3 cents.. Danny

Bill,
 I know there are other items stamped with this lettering. See picture of a bracket and then another of my '68 Z/28 bracket... Danny

Had to run out the door... So yes, I am not ready to do a big wet sand thing and a couple 3 coats of clear. I may do that after the whole car is treated. I am not planning on ever restoring this car. I think I'd like to leave this one as is, and maybe someday buy one already restored... Danny
