Also should have side post battery cables, right?

Another "small" detail the drivers door likely has been replaced, it should have 2 ribs moulded into the door for the blue vin sticker (which also isn't present). I know Gary's car has the ribs and the original sticker .... Wink

28" x 48" , buy it now for $25 plus shipping. Little pricey for a poster, but I thought it was cool. I think 7 are left

I have 99% new Goodyear eagle st on the mustang I just bought from my uncle, but because of the age gap the white letters out looks 80's to me so first thing I did was flip them so the white letters are in!  Funny what you think looks good and what doesn't based on how you remember things from different eras. If you had 14" wheels and were interested I would make you a good deal on them ( I am in So Cal). I want to run a nice pair of tiger paws with a white wall, but unless somebody makes me an offer it will take forever for my wife to run these tires down.

I assume you really meant 'notating it's deficiencies' rather than 'picking it apart'??  Smiley
"Sorry" if you old gear heads assume I am one of these liberal granola brains politically correct types. I am one of the younger guys here, but I  just call it like I see it, and apologize if I make a mistake or step on somebodies toes.
But in the case of this car the seller invites criticism by calling it a "barn find", he may not realize all that is incorrect or been changed in the 22k of miles it accumulated. I also think ignorance is no excuse. If your selling a car for that much money know what you are talking about, instead trying to sound like you know.
I enjoy the insights of our crew here, even Jimmy V chiming in today (on the second listing) about the wood grain. ROCK on CRG members! (even if you own a hugger orange camaro  Cheesy )

well I see he changed the price in the description to 65k from 69.5k. His best chance was the first time he listed it. Any time a car gets re-listed weather its R & M Barret jackson, or what ever all the excitement is gone and questions arise if you have to re-list it.most of the time the never gets near where it went the first time.
Good luck with that car, I think all our members did a great job picking it apart, for any potential buyers here.

I am am with sdkar on this one. I have had my share of cars pass through my hands: just had a 65 mustang that I purchased (& sold) with radial tires from the early 70's, I drove it everywhere no issues. I just purchased a 65 fastback from my uncle he put goodyear eagle st on it over ten years ago (probably over 15) tires have plenty of tread I checked the air, and then drove it 800 miles, no issues. I have 60's motorcycles with the original tires still on them, and look like they were bought yesterday with the knobbies still there, again I have been on the freeway with them,  no issues. With tires, it is all about how they have been stored. Any checking or cracking, i have tossed the tires no problem, but I have learned through experience if you treat tires right they will last a long long time. It is of course owner beware, but why buy new tires every 5 years if they are in good condition? One other thing I am around other gear heads and friends and have never heard a "tire horror story" about a guy driving on older tires that looked fine and all of a sudden they blew out or came off the rim or whatever.

So take it with a grain of salt. Do what makes you comfortable  Wink

Oakly -Are those wire wheel covers on the front ?? I wouldn't have thought those would have made the grade back then for a muscle car  Grin
296  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: trim ring fit to rim on: January 30, 2014, 09:59:14 PM
RSZmjt, I am guessing just different suppliers back then, so probably does not confuse things.

"I looked for clip markings on the outer lip and none were found. However Gary's car (69Z28-RS with the ugly orange interior Smiley ) built the same week 9A, has the four clip. I will contact the owners of the Oct built Z's and see if they can provide pics. Hope this helps....."

Steve

Steve your killin me with the orange comments......I laughed hard when I saw that..... Cheesy Grin Cheesy

I have the original spare from my 08C from my car and the only marks on it are from the 4 clip style, no finger marks on it at all. ( it was rotated with the other tires early on and then stayed in the trunk with the original tire worn but still mounted. (sorry my picture reduction quality skills aren't as good as yours)
298  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: So you think you have a Dana, Nickey,Berger Baldwin, etc...? on: January 30, 2014, 04:10:45 PM
I thought like Gary when you place the order. But then I thought all you did was pay for the date. So then I got very philosophical and thought ok when does it become a car?Huh with the frame? the body the motor? when the metal is poured into the casting for the motor, or pressed into the body and tack welded ? Or is the rolling chassis like the egg and the motor is the "go" juice ?? So when they are mated together on the line you have conception.  Cheesy   . Obviously this can open further debate....

Great, the judging manual would be a great tool. When it becomes available where would we go to purchase one?
