 I got one of the trunk lids...much better fit than the other repos but if you want it look nice inside and out expect to spend some time getting it there! Mostly the edges....I also had an issue with a 13/16 sway bar several years ago and didn't get the service you'd hope to get from them......the repo bar had been bent backwards so the harmonic balancer hit among other areas..Major screw up during manufacturing that should have never been on the market! Just my 2 cents worth..............

Roy emailed a few pics to me and when I ask for pics of those tell tale areas he didn't respond anymore but from the few he did send I could see it had signs of a  z/28 or ??  What wasn't bent up was eat up..He told me he might take 700.00 for it but wasn't sure what he might do with it at that time.I just called his number again this morning but didn't get an answer??

I was asked about this car months ago by Lee Roy M who had just bought it ....When I ask for the vin# and more pics he disappeared and never returned my calls? I wonder what happen to it! Maybe Mike owns it nows?

The clear set I got for a 69 dated with correct logo has DOT 516 under the logo on the doors and rear but DOT 243 on quarters. A quick search on DOT numbers came up with some database sites showing numbers up in the 800s.Places all over the world. I'm waiting for another rear glass from a different supplier with the same DOT # in hopes it will fit better than the one I have now.

If it works fine now and you only want it replated follow Darrells directions plus take pics before you seperate the 2 halves.It will be a simple task for most anyone.I use 2 adjustable wrenchs and a rubber hammer plus I bolt a old master cylinder to the booster and put the MC in the vise.Finding a good plating company might be harder! Good luck.

Pilkington only sells the glass as a kit they put together from different suppilers.A database with DOT #s will tell you who and where made it. A back glass and both doors could be from thailand and quarters from ohio and windsheild from mexico.Each glass will have a DOT number.Look and listen closely if who you are buying from anyone...Just my thoughts!

Real interesting stuff to read about..Thanks John for the vega education!

I'd say no profit in those numbers if you restore it yourself but just buying one and riding/enjoying it for awhile could be profitable unless you give #1 money for a #3 car! A buddy of mine had a 50 mile 1975 model he sold for 13,500 in 2005 when they were up.Even cool and rare as they are it's a tricky investment car... The Yenko wagon sold in 09 for 85k.I had my 72 Yunick turbo engine car appraised in 07 and the appraisers worked on it a long time but came up with 100k. I was lucky to trade it for a 69 camaro IMHO.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rick & His Yenko at Americarna LIVE Car Show on: December 25, 2013, 09:06:46 PM
More than the 5900.00 it sold for new I'm guessing?

Richard you might check at dollar general..........Cosworth vegas were made only two years 75-76..All 2062 1975 models were black and the 1446 1976 ones were offered in other colors! These were the first passanger cars to use EFI best I remember.They had some really good hi per parts and run very well able to turn high RPMs. They are very affordable today but when new just a few dollars less than a vette..

Thanks but the wagon is to small for hauling much of anything other than"butt" It has a 4 cylinder with 390 cfm holley and a header hooked up to a opel 4 speed and a shifter that felt like a stick in a 5 gal bucket of mud when shifting it! The turbo vega would run circles around the Yenko! I still like my bikes better than a vega!

High performance muscle cars did go down due to the gas shortage..I remember 427 vette could be bought around 2500.00 in the mid 70s..they sure haven't come down lately .The 60-70s muscle cars just don't appeal to the younger crowd anymore and the older folks have the memories and the money! Don't forget our muscle cars and parts are being sold and shipped out of the US to a world market. I'd love to buy another 69 Z/28 for 1050.00 bucks!That is 1979 prices! The first gen camaro is just so popular and has been for a very long time you'll never see them affordable again IMHO......They have become more of an investment car.
