Garage Talk / A great place to lose a car. ( the hot Rod power tour)
« on: June 11, 2019, 10:09:03 PM »
Sounds like thieves are targeting what ever they can make off with:

5 cars stolen over night. Hopefully they were insured, and the owners can replace them.

General Discussion / Is this a known car?
« on: May 26, 2019, 02:46:25 AM »
I saw this car on eBay and was curious if it is a known car.

I forwarded the pics of the stamps to Gary, maybe he can post them.

General Discussion / Drive train re-stamp?
« on: March 11, 2019, 04:13:38 PM »
So I posted a link to this car on another thread just comparing the trim tag (06A). The owner (dealer) has the car listed for sale on" Fake book", and claims numbers matching 1969 Z/28 for $68,000.  He (may) have the original protect-o-plate .
 I asked him to post pics of the the original stamps on the drive train and while the trans stamps definitely does not match the POP, the motor Vin stamp on the pad, has got to be to late for that, and then the rear end looks like they stamped numbers to match the POP. What is really bizarre is they left the original rear stamp (**0618G1) , and then stamped numbers below it that. (he even has a note that says two lines of numbers in the pic)

(I thought he car should at least be in the CRG data base, for any future sales where it claims to be original drive train. )

Decoding/Numbers / Original DZ Stamp?
« on: March 03, 2019, 05:36:46 AM »
I have a friend who just got the is block from a family member who had it for years. It does not have the correct crank, but I wanted opinions if the stamp looks to be original?
I have not seen the block in person or seen a vin stamp (yet).

General Discussion / 1969 Smog pump and parts on ebay
« on: December 14, 2018, 05:15:03 PM »
Hey I saw this ad for a 69 smog pump on ebay. I know the're a lot of guys trying to piece back there system. Quite a bit included in the auction. I thought of Tim trying to disassemble his.
Not a bad deal, you may even offer less and get a better deal:

General Discussion / Another 69Z project for sale (orange this time)
« on: December 09, 2018, 07:45:59 AM »
Well we discussed that red 69Z on ebay for 23.9 that just sold. I just saw this one very similar to that car but 72 72 Hugger Orange for $22,500:

According to the map it looks to be located just south of indianapolis?

(One draw back compared with the red one, is this is a pre X code trim tag car, but he said it is present behind the rear seat.)

General Discussion / Home page and feature car
« on: December 05, 2018, 04:31:05 AM »
Since we cannot comment on the other page anymore, I started this one to open a discussion on the Home page cars and the feature car. It is unfortunate no-one has submitted their car in the last month or so. I don't think it is because a lack of interest, in general I think most guys don't check the thread to know how many cars you have on deck.
 I think it is a great idea to have cars rotate from the home page, and it sounds like the CRG just needs more submissions. I have enjoyed all the write ups with the additional pics. From project cars like Bentleys yellow 69 with the tunnel ram, to the stock builds. It would be nice if there was a link to have on hand on past feature cars, so we can go back and read about them or use them for reference.
One suggestion in the future features or just pics, is there is quite a few guys I would like to see more of their cars. I know we can send personal messages to guys to submit, but how about just nominating a couple guys cars every couple of months?
Me personally I would like to see Jano's 68 Z, also NoYenkos 69, also some of the guys that have unrestored cars, as well as some of the exported Camaros .
I think it would also be cool to see a write up from the Guys who still participate with their Trans am racers all across the country, and can't remember ever seeing one of their cars on the home page, yet there are a decent group who check in and participate in the threads.

To sum things up I would like to keep the feature car and others going, and if guys are too shy or do not want to boast, I think a little coaxing or nominating of their cars may give them the idea that it is ok to show off their prize.
(BTW " thank you" to those CRG members who have kept it going this long)

General Discussion / Is there any history on this ebay 69Z?
« on: September 27, 2018, 11:34:14 PM »
Just wanted to know if this car is in the database, or if anyone else is familiar with this 69Z


So I was searching around the internet for some Stewart Warner info and ran across this story on the 69 BB COPO.

Great story, and funny to read about a 3 way trade that was pulled off.

General Discussion / red 69 Z, original, but a project on ebay
« on: July 27, 2018, 01:42:28 AM »
Well I saw in another thread a member asking about values. I did not want to clog up his thread, so I started one on this car:

I think it has a lot going for it originality wise, but is on the short side of Survivor because there is SO much patina. So it is going to need a full resto, just to save it.

Already at $35k. We will see if that is a serious bid

Garage Talk / Ok you Hugger Orange fanatics, this is for you....
« on: April 20, 2018, 03:44:57 PM »
So I just saw this today:

Jim Gilmore special ordered Hugger Orange 84 Corvette. Supposedly 1 of 2 cars in this special paint, and only 22k miles:

(Gary this should be in your collection, right?) ;D

General Discussion / Unrestored Z/10 anyone?
« on: March 23, 2018, 04:12:02 AM »
Saw this ebay ad for a unrestored Z/10 with a black vinyl top. Thought it was pretty cool

Sad story of why he is selling it, but says he is the second owner.

At 22k so far, no reserve. Fun to watch these unrestored cars. :)

General Discussion / black 69 RS/SS Caveat Emptor?
« on: March 20, 2018, 06:54:23 PM »
So I saw this 69 Camaro on ebay, and it has been generating a lot of interest. I wasn't sure if I should piggy back onto a previous thread or not, so I started a new one.
Here is the ebay listing:

It shows a late 69 (08A) Camaro SS with a trim tag showing 10. Maybe Kurt and William have seen enough of these were it is no big deal. I don't see that many late in the year with a factory black paint job, and would like some more insight. Have black cars been documented this late in the year?

Note *The trim tag doesn't look right to me, when I compare it to others I have on file

(VIN # is not listed in the auction)

Always on the hunt, and keeping tabs on the market. With the recent craziness from the results of the recent Barret Jackson auction, I thought there are many good cars out there still.

I ran across this one the other night:

Appears to be a very straight forward SS-350 car, with a 4 speed, and P-O-P. Seller says original ZL-2 hood, which if ordered with the car is kinda rare. Great color combo, with the correct sport stripes. Has a decent amount of patina for me to like it.

Just in case anyone is looking for a nice car, this one looked like a solid car that IMO is priced right.  8)

General Discussion / A First Generation Camaro LEGACY ?
« on: January 12, 2018, 04:49:55 AM »
How much do we love our hobby? Will all first gens eventually turn into a SS or Z/28?

So with the appearance of another fake 69Z, I got to thinking:20,302 is a lot of 69 Z/28's. If it were less like 68 it would be nice to have a (smaller) registry. If each Z got inspected and then there was a national registry of known real cars, a potential buyer could then contact them, and verify a real car. I think you could still do it with the 69 Z and SS and pace cars, you would have just need to develop a database to keep track of the cars by Vin number, and trim tag. You could put notes in like Jerry M verified drive train, or Steve S inspected car at MCACN and verified original stamped components.
If this was done and could be viewed online. Would this be an easier way to curb guys passing off fakes? or maybe it would cause guys to copy known cars, so maybe pay for a document, like a rough draft MARTI report, on what is known about a car?

Seems like many of us who like to police ebay and the fake cars out there could come up with a database that could be over seen by a team of guys, and passed down to younger generations as time goes on. These cars are going to outlive us, hell some of them are coming back from the dead with re-bodies (wouldn't it be nice if we could get a re-body?  :))
I think the CRG is a great resource for many owners, but I think developing a data base for all to utilize would be a nice Legacy for us to leave behind for the Camaro owners that follow us.

I would appreciate some input from the many CRG members and administrators on this one. I may even get a poll going if enough good ideas or questions are raised .

(BTW -I think Kurt, Ed and others have done a good job of posting info on cars that are parading around as something special now, I just would like to expand this)
