Thats to bad about the economy, and Camaro performers going under. I know Romney would have been more accountable, but it still would have been tough to get the economy humming again. I am interested to see who becomes the front runner to go against Hilary. Think of all the publications that have gone under though, newsweek, and the news papers in general are struggling. Maybe the next candidate can run on a platform of bringing back (the economy)& all the great car publications!

Gary doesn't provide a letter, but his services are affordable... Cheesy

Pat87, any chance of her emailing/sending you some current pics (of the car)?
36  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z/28 X77 garage/barn find on: August 12, 2014, 04:58:14 PM
Heres one for ya, sold for $49,500, but I don't know how long ago http://www.thechevconnection.com/69z28dskblue.htm
(obviously a little different as this one has the ZL-2 hood, and rear spoiler, and appears to have the X33 trim, But at least it gives you a close visual example)

Thats a bit much I think.

Your right about that. I have seen a lemans blue with a white vinyl top Z, but not a dusk blue yet*. It would definitely stand out with the white vinyl, like that convertible.

Good find!

Darrell, I finally got a chance to read your post. Great find, with a decent amount of history, and the bonus of the Protecto plate. I am glad you found the right car for yourself, and did not settle on any of the previous ones. You have the makings of a great car on your hands, and you will have the knowledge that it is done right piecing it back together.
Gary W has the right idea preserve as much of it as you can, taking notes and pics regarding factory marks and parts used as you go. When you look back this will be an invaluable tool that you will always go back and reference. All the close up pics of the stamps are a nice little reference when you need to know a date on your car or know what your car came with.
What is your plan for the car ? (Are you going to put it back stock with the white vinyl and no spoiler?)

"Thank you Mr. Wizard."
Gary has a good handle on how to calculate the day your car was produced. (He calculated mine almost to the day!)

Maybe we should call Gary the N.G.R.S.... Cheesy

start with the easy/cheap stuff like spark plug gap, points, condenser ( you want to probably put new ones of those anyways) and then go from there. I purchased an older car about a year ago and had similar issues with vacuum. (Did a Compression test, and it was fine). It was not one single issue, but every time I replaced a part, say points for instance it ran better. I replaced the plugs, better still. Carb gasket, a bit better. I was an eagle eye with that vacuum gauge, some small piece would bump up my vacuum, and/or make it run that much smoother. I think the car hadn't run in years. While it was frustrating not having the easy fix, it was a fun journey seeing it come alive more and more with each small fix. Good luck, and keep us posted.. Smiley

Vince I also live in California, and as far as gasoline goes, I have learned a few things concerning the oxygenated/ethanol gasoline formula used only for California. 1) it has a  very short shelf life. If you don't go through a tank longer than a few months it starts to turn green, and lose its potency. 2) keeping this in mind you also have to observe the station you purchase gasoline from, if it is a slow station and they are not getting tankers dropping off gasoline fairly often, same result gas gets stagnate. 3) Now I cannot prove this, but I have had issues 3 times now with Chevron gasoline in older cars. I just rebuilt my carb on my mustang only to find out the fuel we just got from Chevron starting to separate, and there is like an orange jelly in the gasoline. I knew about Chevron gasoline being inferior already, but my wife thought gas is gas, filled it up there by accident. I know this may cause some people to laugh, but it has happened more than once both previous ties from Chevron in California. I fill up about a half tank at a time from a real busy Shel station here in SoCal, with 91 octane and have never had a problem.
Just my 2 cents from what I have learned the hard way pertaining to California gas. I do miss the midwest's gasoline, both Speedway and Citgo sold 93 and 94 at some stations out there, and for cheaper!
Hope this helps some Smiley
