Doesn't everyone drive onto the lift?

Last year I was in the Bowtie class and no lift.  First year Legends cars go on the lift.  If they don't have to recheck anything that needs a lift the following year you don't have to go back on.

Congrats on the score!!!  Smiley

My car was right across from yours.

I had a great time!  It was my first year in Legends and I drove the car on to the lift: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4kR2xuVh-g

I'll be in Frederick with my 69 green Z.  The 69 owner, the 74 owner, and the 76 owner are going to see their former car there. 

I'm looking forward to meeting up with some CRG guys.

maybe, but to me crazy is $500 for a repop worth $20.

an original bracket for someone with an original Z that really wants that part.....it's probably worth the $625.78 to them.

Does anyone know who sells the correct screw for the bracket?

You probably know this already, but....

do you have a 69 Z/28 made during or after July/August 1969?

according to JohnZ, ďThe added fuel line clip/bracket didnít start until around July/August 1969.Ē

Great story and GREAT pics DavidS. Could you PM me about how the dash was repaired and the VIN tag, since mine is going through the "treatment", I'd like to know any pointers? Wink
At first I tried buying a complete original dash panel, but that didn't work out so well.  See here: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9088.0

The VIN tag area didn't have problems and the shop that I had the car restored at always kept as much original sheet metal as they could. They cut up reproduction sheet metal and welded it in.

Great pics from 1969.  I do have a question on why your Z/28 has a black grill.  The reason I ask is that I also have a black grill.  I haven't figured out if mine was replaced at some point, but old pics of mine back to 87 show a black grill.  I just figured the silver one was replaced at some point.  Your pics are from 1969 and show a black grill.... did dealers install different color grills in some cases??   Puzzling.  
The black grill was painted on.  It was coming off in a bunch of places when I bought the car and you could see the argent silver under the black paint.  Maybe if you try chipping yours off a little, you will see argent silver underneath?

Thanks guys!!!

Alfred had sent me a few more 1969 pictures of the car.  He took the car to California for a while and lived in the San Francisco Bay Area.  He said it was real cloudy some mornings so he put fog lights on the car.  I have the fog lights out in my shed right now.

It was fairly well kept but had some dents from a few fender benders.  About 1/3 of the car had been repainted.  Before I bought it, it was kept for about 10 years next to the ocean in Florida.  I think that the salt water was turning some areas on the body, like the dash panel, into swiss cheese.

OK.  Will do.

I have the Rallye Green 69 Z/28 on the far right.  It was in the Camaro Nationals Bowtie class last year and this year it will be in the Legends class.  Iím hoping it does well and I really want to thank all of the folks on this site who gave me a tremendous amount of help. 

I am the 9th owner of the Z, and Iíve talked to all of the former owners except for one.

Almost all of the former owners were Air Force mechanics and some are Vietnam vets.  Three of the former owners, Alfred, Larry and Jack are going to the 2014 Camaro Nationals.  It is going to be awesome for me to get their pictures with their former car.

Alfred bought the car in 1969 and this is Alfred with the Z in 1969 at at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. I really like all the daily drivers in the background of this picture.


Larry bought the car at Shepard AFB in 1974.  He went to the Camaro Nationals last year and is going again this year. 
The picture on the front page of the CRG has Larry in the drivers seat at the Camaro Nationals. 


Jack bought the car in 1976 and had the car for 35 years. 
Picture of the Z when Jack was at Sheppard AFB Wichita Falls, Texas in 1976.

a year or two ago I saw an original bracket go over $500 on the auction site. I paid over that for mine but it was attached to the original carb 

Holy Cow!

There was one that sold in May 2012 on EBay for $504.  The bidding started at 99 cents.  It was EBay item auction number 220998003115.

I saved pictures of it.  Here is one of the pictures of that bracket in all it's fraudulent glory:

With a bunch of google searches, I might have found his address and phone number, but I couldn't find a street number.

Thanks guys!!!

The pictures were taken by Bruno Ratensperger in Old Saybrook CT.  He lives about an hour away from my house.  

It was a fun drive down to his place with the white car.  Smiley  I had to do about an hour of cleaning after I got there though.

It was not nearly as much fun to trailer the Z, but I didn't have to do any major cleaning.
