very cool. I hope many other pics held hostage are freed. Since they are now showing, can you copy and save them differently so photo bucket doesn't have control over your pics?

RRM are you sure your car isn't a August of 68 (early) 69 Z?

(That would make more sense for the early tach)

Well it looks good in those pics. Different car inspectors all have different levels of expertise and knowledge, and how far they will dig into a car to have a thorough report. How much were gary's services?

Some guys just specialize in Camaros, some are just classic car inspectors, and have general knowledge.

Did you specify what you wanted inspected before he went out?

Were you more interested in the numbers of the car, or how everything functioned?

One inspector may specialize more in function vs. numbers matching. You kind of have to know what you want scrutinized ahead of time, or have different inspectors for the different aspects you want looked at carefully.

Ok, Gary who? With what company?

Jerry MacNeish or Steve Shauger would be trusted guys. Other than them, vet out anyone you are going to use.

If the car has a good body, I would say your still in good shape.

Any pics?

I have drum and disc on different cars, I understand what you are saying about dragging, but I coast in the cars all the time on the same stretches of roads. I cannot tell a difference between them. I would think the difference would be negligible.
Has anyone ever measured the difference on a track, for how much slower a car with disc runs vs, drum?

So that 305 could still be out there.

Someone must know the where abouts of the car if it has been restored. I am almost surprised Jon Mello doesn't know its where abouts. Jon is great at tracking down these cars.

I raced the car in NHRA D/MP class until about 1971. I then sold the car less engine in about 1972. The buyer installed a 358" small block and continued drag racing for a year or two. It then went to someone that stored for several years, then it disappeared. A friend of mine said he saw the car completely restored back to original at a car show about ten years ago but he didn't get the owners name. I ranm the VIN a few times but no results.
Well maybe it will surface again. What became of the motor that you held onto?

That would be surprising to me since they had that guru with the crutches climbing all around it. You would think he would have pointed them in the right direction?

Possible, but I doubt it based on what Jano reported. (Under 40 vs under 30)

I am thinking the buyer realized there was a lot of work to be done to get it restored, or maybe even road worthy.

I noticed Shell Rotella reduced the Zinc of there products in the last couple of years. I am not sure if it was across the board or just in my region.
