Thanks Ed for finding the thread, your new name is Mr. Database.... Grin
32  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Triple Black '69 Z28 on: December 23, 2012, 08:05:58 AM
Was doing the usual tour on E-Bay looking at parts and cars, came across this ad and the sellers claim is TC and CRG Members have confirmed the trim tag to be real and car is in the database. Interesting part is no vin or link provided to any thread confirming the claim. Does anyone remember the car and perhaps the accompanying thread discussion? From the one pic posted the trim tag looks a little beaten up.

That is a cool pic of the car, I hope you find it and get reunited.

Great videos Dave and James, gotta love the sound of Chambered exhaust. James it looks like the car is almost complete, you need to update your TC thread with some pics.

Here you go, on E-bay for $4. These are the ads but you can buy complete magazines.

Tonawanda stamp on a DZ block...dead give away fake stamp, all DZ engines were built in Flint.

As Kurt has noted and I think we can at least agree when the motor is in the car that vin is hard to see at the best of times, it is entirely possible on the second inspection perhaps Jerry was able to find it. I have pictures of my block out of the car and still the vin by the oil filter is hard to read. I would agree that anyone who needs more context should reach out to Jerry directly.

Hey Eddie, on the dip stick you should see USE GM 6041-M-QUALITY MS ENGINE OIL and the length is 18 3/4" from bottom of handle to the tip.

Holly fender flares Batman, no vin number provided in the listing but if this is an early build then the partial vin number would be stamped on the pad, if a late built then down by the oil filter boss.  
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Looking for an inspection near columbus, ohio. on: October 04, 2012, 03:28:15 PM
Maybe there is a member here that can inspect the car for you.  Can you post pictures of the car, stampings etc so maybe the virtual folks can give their feedback. Might be a starting point for now until you can arrange something with Jerry, sometimes pictures do say a 1000 words.
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Block Decking on: October 04, 2012, 07:33:25 AM
Daniel, you bring up some interesting points. There are a multitude of reasons why an engine would need to be decked and in most instances would be part of a legitimate repair. I think the line becomes black and white when someone does so to deceive or misrepresent an item as being the "real deal" knowing full well they have done this to separate someone from their money.

JohnZ also has a great '69Z and the car is very original. Should try to get him to post some pics of his engine bay.  
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: $50k to spend on a Camaro. Which one would you pick this month on: October 02, 2012, 07:38:38 AM
It will all depend on what condition you need the car, a driver or something fully restored. Lots of nice cars out in the market place right now but have varying degrees of restoration. If you are looking for numbers matching, fully restored, nice color combination and with original documentation then I don't think $50K will do it. If you find a car somewhat restored and numbers matching with no documentation then yes lots of stuff out there. Have you looked on E-Bay, Cars on Line, Team Camaro, just to name a few.

Buy nothing until you have the car inspected by someone who knows these vehicles like Jerry MacNeish.  You can also post pics of the car, trim tag and stampings on this site and others to soloist feedback and be careful lots of fake cars for sale with bogus trim tags etc. 

Best of luck in your hunt.

Wonder why there is so many layers of paint on the Trim Tag, I would say it might be a reproduction tag.
