1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 Z/28 Block - Trans - Rear Numbers... Original Stamps? on: April 20, 2014, 01:08:49 AM
Yes, who knows. I see that last digit is very light. Looks like a "9" ? How can you hit them all super deep and then have one that barely shows. What the hell!!  Huh Huh   I need a few more entries here, and some more explaining before I tell my buddy weather or not to pull the trigger on this car... Danny

I too am going to say that the other white type markings seem to NOT be light. And if it IS gang stamped, why are some of the numbers so darn deep and the others light. Maybe that day the gang holders were missing, so they set up a straight edge jig and did it by hand? How can one 6 be so deep and the other 6 RIGHT next to it be so light? Doesn't make sense. I hope William, Kurt and some others chime in with info and maybe pictures of Jerry's report in 06'. My friend is looking at this car and forwarded the info to me. Then I have been doing my own research... Danny

Here is a very nice 68' Z/28 that was inspected by Jerry M. in 06' as ALL numbers matching drive train. But I am wondering if the block and trans are STILL the same ones since 8 years has passed. This car must be in the DB. Do the pictures match from 8 years ago? I worked on the pictures for quite a while getting them nice and bright, clear, cropped and resized.... Danny

Again thanx, no Mrs. Starr, just me. 53 and trying to make it all happen. So I will be online for about another 3 weeks. Then extreme diet treatment, and then the radioactive stuff. I appreciate all the support. Danny

Here is a couple shots of old restored jacks. Is this the one you are looking for? I punched in that jack part number and these images came up.... Danny

Thanx again, yes it is scary as it seems some of you lived it already, and in more ways then one. I actually take care of my Father about 35 weekends a year. And live in a 33 foot 5th wheel on his property. Gave up a HUGE place with a couple thousand square feet of dry storage. But he is 84 and my Mom died of liver Cancer in 04', so gotta do it. I can't stay in the trailer cause I am not hooked to the sewer. The tank gets pumped every 3 weeks or so. BUT, it could poison the guy, his helper and anybody close by. So it's off to my friends house again.
 
 I don't think there is a Camaro in my future. At least not near. It was 100K JUST for the surgery, I have to pay 30K of that! And as you know, the list goes on and on. Never ends, good times, living the American dream..

Go Giants!!

HOLLY CRAP... Thank you all SO MUCH!!! What a HUGE out pouring of support. I never have seen anything like it. I don't know what to say..  Grin Grin

 I guess I better start by saying thank you all very much for leaving this post up. I guess it's pretty non-related but I felt compelled as I enjoy being here with you guys.
The surgery was 6 hours! Recovery at one friends house for 8 days, then another friends for 4. With my Dads property issues, and his dementia, and other friends with heart attacks, computer probelms and the whole game of life, I have neglected to keep up with email etc. Talk about good friends... I was given 10K CASH to help with my bills. Don't have to pay it back!
 The surgeon told me he could take a thyroid out in less than an hour with a steak knife. BUT, I had 3 big tumors that had to come out. And 20 lymph nodes. 18 had Cancer. So it was a central and a left node dissection. He said he hasn't had to cut like that in a long time. I am still pretty dizzy when I look straight up or straight down. I guess it takes a while to get all that medicine out of me that they used to knock me out. Crazy!! So missing a lot of work and trying to do some small jobs. I go on a special no iodine diet for 14 days. Then I take the radioactive iodine treatment and go in to isolation for 7 days. Can't be with-in 7 feet of anybody for those 7 days or they could get infected. Hopefully that does it and no radiation. I am rambling now, you all get it. Thanx and looking forward to catching up on all the fun posts on Camaro's. No worries on my info being private.
Daniel J. Cannuli is correct. Address and phone number if it's ever needed not a problem. And I WAS and will be back at UCSF in San Fran. Nice detective work... Over and o... wait a minute, I am not OUT yet. Danny...

Well guys, long story short I got myself a case of the Cancer. I found 3 large tumors in my throat Jan 1st of 2013 while shaving. I checked the other side and of course there was nothing there. Had them tested 7 months later and they all came back malignant. A couple of you know about this already. I have thyroid Cancer. If it was just regular thyroid Cancer it would be a snap. While this would normally be a 45 minute to 1 hour operation, it is deep in my limp nodes and behind my clavicle. Which they can't get to. Went to a hospital in San Francisco and got the bulk of the bad news. Anyway, I go to the city tomorrow, then the 6 hour surgery is Tuesday at 6am. Then radioactive iodine treatments, and radiation after that. If all that doesn't work, then I was told to get my affairs in order. They gave me a 65% chance of survival. While I wish it was 90%, it's surely better than 30%.
 I know none of you are my personal friends, but just wanted to say... just in case... it has been SO FUN hanging out with you all online. I am sorry if I hurt anybody. Take Care of yourselves and I will hopefully be back online after all this recovery and treatment is done with. Over and out... Danny
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Fredd Gibb ZL 1 on eBay.. Rebodied? on: March 01, 2014, 01:54:23 PM
So here is a nice car but it has been re-bodied. They always say in their adds in a very sly sort of way how it was done. This one was "Mated" with another 69 body. Now as far as I am concerned it is NOT the same car. It is NOT the same car that left the factory complete as a new ZL -1 427 Camaro. You can read the books, listen to the music, wear the clothes, watch old movies... BUT YOU CAN'T GO BACK!! I don't care if they have ALL the documentation in the world. It's not the same car! Why it's at 80K I have no idea. That means I can buy just a 427 that is for sale online with COPO documentation, but no car, throw it in a base model 6 cyl. landau top Camaro and call it a COPO? I don't think so Mr.   There is no trick to this. If you buy THIS car, you DON'T own a COPO... Sorry.. You own part of a car that USED to be a COPO! You wanna change some fenders and quarters with NOS parts, do yourself a resto, well then you STILL have the original car. I know you are not putting it in a 69' road runner. But just because you happen to pick the same model body, doesn't make it a REAL COPO! All the nuances and markins, hidden vin's are just NOT THERE... Right? Trying to make the cowl tag look like it belongs, hell it doesn't even look like a REAL tag. This is Camaro with a big engine. Estimated value = About 52 to 60K at the TOP... maybe... Danny

Awesome!! I hope you are not kidding, I am ready. I will let ya know how my training and harness fitting goes.... Danny
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Sinkhole in the Corvette Museum on: February 13, 2014, 05:02:43 PM
I can tell ya right now I would volunteer to get lowered down there tomorrow if I could. I remember in 86' I was working on an off shore oil rig 7 days a week 12 hours a day. We were building it for Chevron. After completion to haul it away they had one of two of the biggest pieces of Eq. I had ever seen. One was one of two cranes that are the largest in the world. The other was a carrier out of japan, also one of the biggest in the world. They lifted that sucker up and put it on the carrier like it was a bag of candy. I think it was in two pieces, but still. Of course they wouldn't need THAT crane, but why would you leave ANY of them down there. Hook them up and pull them out one at a time. What's the problem. They make chain and cable plenty long enough. Have them contact me if they want someone to be lowered in the hole ... Danny

It does look like actual wood. I see what ya mean by the spokes being bent at the ends right before going in the wood. Somebody fooled with this wheel don't ya think?  Huh
