Regarding the overspray, IMO it's really up to who the person is restoring/having the car restored. If he/she a purest at heart, then there might be some overspray, or if they want show quality and crisp lines they might square off the lines.

Frank's car is a great example of how a car can look with overspray and still be outstanding in every detail. If the cars in the SLS were being judged, it would be hard not to chose Frank's car as the "best paint job".  Frank's frost green color was outstanding. I never would have bought a car with that color from the factory, but with a paint job like Frank's  one wouldn't mind owning one this color. The paint had a very deep look to it.  If you saw it in person you would know what I mean. His paint job made my car look like it needed a good buffing.  And trust me, I really like for my car to shine when its being shown.

If I lived near Frank, I know who would be painting my cars and buffing when needed, if he would do it.  If you want to see an example of  detail on Franks car look, at the two finger strips on the driver side cylinder head. It looked like someone removed grease/dust on the flat surface.  I was told this would have come from the factory/dealer marked this way. Someone can correct me on this, since I'm only repeating what I was told about the car.

I have a lot of people ask me "would your car have come from the factory looking like this " and my reply, probably not.

My first car was a 1953 Flat Head Ford.  Paid the guy $75.00 and the car actually ran, or it did for a while; then it became a royal pain in the pocket book.

The guys do look cool. At first glance, I thought it was Elwood and Jake - the Blues Brothers...

While at Carlisle Pa. last w/e, I finally met a guy that has been trying to help me find a motor that was installed in a Burnish Brown 69Z and sold in the Lebanon PA area back in the late 70's or mid to late 80's.  He has chase down many leads to only run out of leads.  If you happen to own a BB Z that was bought in the PA area about this time, would you PM me to discuss this in more detail, especially if you don't know the full history of you BB Z..

Chick as always, nice to see you and Lonnie again...I'm sorry, I held him up Saturday morning while he was supposed to be helping you clean your car.  The L78 Nova was just plain awesome. I know you got a lot of compliments on such an outstanding car.
My wife ask me on the way back home yesterday, just how long I have known you and Lonnie. I told her,  we met at Maples Grove in 2010 and again in 2012 at Fredrick Md. and stayed in touch via email. She said, that you both were very nice and you guys acted as though I had known each other for a very long time. 

Gary from the south. Very nice meeting you and thanks for taking time out of your day to talk Camaro's with me. It was great to finally put a face to a name and seeing some of the guys from CRG at Carlisle on Saturday.

Skip, even though you said that you do a lot of reading on CRG and don't post much, still nice to put a face to a name.  As we discussed this w/e,  I will say that I have now been to both Fredrick and Carlisle and I have to give the edge to Carlisle's Fair Grounds Complex, what a great place. Everything I heard it would be. They have there act together. I thought Charlotte was set up well, but Carlisle has a lot going on making it a great place to show and even sell a car if you can find a deal. 

So many nice people at both places though.. One couple I spoke to late Saturday came down from Toronto just to look around. I'm not I would drive 8 hrs. one way just to look at cars, unless I was planning on buying one. I know my wife would not go or ride that far.  Anyway nice meeting and talking to you guys !!!!

I will be in the SLR at Carlisle. Hope to see you there Gary...!!!

Chick, I will be there sometime around noon on Thursday, provided  my travel plans work out as planned...I will ware my CRG shirt on Saturday like we did at CMS...

See you there. I'm really looking forward to the show...

Thanks for the article.

23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: May 28, 2014, 04:20:39 PM
The dealer was Evans Chevrolet Inc. Bluefield W Va..I check on the web and found nothing on them. So, I'm assuming they are out of business or has been sold..I was told by a couple of people that had previously owned the car that it was sold new in NC.   I went by the DMV today and picked up the form to do a complete title search to see where it was sold and to whom.

24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: May 27, 2014, 07:32:11 PM
I got my letter today, as well. The official production date of my car was 2/28/1969..Three days later than the block stamping...Thanks Roy for providing this information. I will now do a NC title search to see where it was first titled and sold within NC...

25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Fan shroud on: May 21, 2014, 06:54:40 PM
Not trying to Hi Jack your post, but I have a questions regarding your fan shroud. What plating if any is supposed to be on the center bolt for a 69 shroud ...Plated or non-plated. I have been told both, but still not sure which one is the  factory correct  finish.

26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Chevrolet's New Z/28 on: May 18, 2014, 07:35:00 PM
Thanks Chick.  Hedrick's did not bid on this one, he was offering along with GM. It was for  J. Gordon's charity "Drive to End Hunger"...

27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Chevrolet's New Z/28 on: May 18, 2014, 05:20:32 PM
I was watching the Palm Beach BJ auction today (not sure if this was a rerun or not) and saw where GM and Mr. Hendrick's auctioned off the first new production Z/28 # 001 (if I understood them correctly) and it went for $500K. How will this person ever get his money back out of this car.   Huh Huh Huh

28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: May 18, 2014, 05:13:35 PM
Risnor, I have been following this subject and submitted and applications as well. This has to be a labor of love to dig and research through all these files in order to help others find out information about their car(s).  This is a great service you and your team are providing. 

I would like to thank you and your team for researching this information and sending out the information to the Camaro owners here on CRG.  To date, with the more than 600 plus application that you have received, how many actual certificates have been processed, including those that were refunded due to not being in the archive files.
