32  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What starting letter should my Plates have? on: February 25, 2015, 11:45:20 PM
I WANT to use the YKZ 821 plates. When the car came here from Utah, I had it checked out by one of those companies that come out and verify the VIN etc. I took the paperwork to the DMV and it all went thru... EXCEPT the plates, as they were not clear. Of course they can't tell ya to whom they are registered with. However I tricked the lady some when she said these plates are in another persons name, and we cannot tell ya who it is cause of the privacy act. Right away I said oh yes I know it's Richard Ward Anderson isn't it, and without thinking she said yes. Then got a weird look on her face, like she did something wrong. I said well I will have to find him and see if he can release the plates. I can't find him, and actually think he passed a few years ago. I found his death cert online. How many Richard Ward Andersons can there be. Still looking... Anybody got any ideas how to find him?.. D

So Paul, I read that thread also. What letter would you pick if you had my car? I am thinking "W".. D

Well I just read that whole thread.. Very informative. So I guess W or X would work. Looks like it's still a hit and miss pending on where you lived and how busy was that/your local DMV. I wish there was some way to find out what the original set of plates were.... Danny

Looking to find some used original License plates for my 68 Camaro. Right now it has YKZ 821 plates which I believe are for a '69. Because the second owner bought the car 4/12/69 from a dealership. What do I need for my car that was first placed in service 6/18/68? Anybody have any original plates on there car with a close date to mine? What are the cutoff months for the different letters?.
How about these, Too Early? Too Late?, Just Right?.

  Also found this
 My research has shown that the 1963-69 year-by-year, letter allocation plate issuance breakdown has some overlap, but plates beginning with the following letters generally correspond to the year of issue:  ABCD=1963, EFGHI=1964, JKLMN=1965, OPQRS=1966, TUVW=1967, WX = 1968 YZ=1969. This sound correct?? .. Danny

This car is about 1 hour from me.. I was maybe going to take a ride and go see it if I can ever get a day off. IF I do, I will take some pic's and collect data. I am no expert, however I am good at finding things that can help determine if there is any funny business going on. And I know how to take a decent picture... Danny

That alt is HAMMERED! Literally! What the hell are all those nicks and dents and 12 identical dot indents, 6 on each side of the mount. Never seen anything like that. I would pass if it was $250.. D

 I was looking at that car for years. Same add, same pictures for a LONG time. I wondered if it was ever going to sell. Nice score for sure. Looking forward to a bunch of pic's... Danny

 Grin  Actually belief it or not, the oil usage has dropped, and the oil is now a lot less discolored between changes. I will change it a couple more times at 500 mile increments and then see what it looks like. I may then be able to let it go 2 or 3 thousand. Also ya gotta remember my crankcase and oil pan was saturated with fuel.... Danny
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 Value on: February 07, 2015, 11:39:48 PM
Like I mentioned, it looks like the tag was pulled and re-riveted back on, possibly with non factory rivets. We would have to see what they look like from the back under the cowl. Should be similar to picture.... D

Car sat since '86. After getting it going I have changed the oil 6 times in the 1,200 miles I have put on it. I guess it's ok.. All stock, engine never apart... Danny

Good one!.. Wouldn't that be cool to have all 3 years. I am going to say it's not going to happen in this life time. I am having too much fun with the one I have now, so that's good enough for me. .. Danny

Not that far from me and I'm STILL not going to go see it... Danny
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Battery Ground Cable on: February 04, 2015, 12:02:27 PM
I have to check how long they are, as I might try to repair them in the future. I have lead, ladle, torch for when we used to do lead and oakum joints in waste lines and rain water leaders. I can find cheaper versions of the same era so the spring ring matches, and cut the cable off or try to pull them out so I don't lose any inches. Then drill it bigger put the end in and pour in the lead. Problem is, I think they may have been cut and cleaned and stripped to many times?? .. Danny
