So since there is a square hole around the vin plate, it looks like the dash may have been repaired/replaced at one point. Seems like this car raises a lot of questions.
I asked the dealer if they had any previous pics of the car prior to restoration, and said they seller purchased it this way.

well bad news. The motor is not original to the car, Looks to be an april date,(looks to be an original DZ?) He said there is a partial VIN by the oil filter but he was having a hard time trying to read it. The trans may be from the same car as the motor and is dated pretty close (P9D29B) but the vin was really hard to make out, may have had another stamp done on top of the original vin stamp. I asked for a pic on the rear end and he said it looks to have new axle tubes installed, in fact he said there was still a part # on the sticker, but they were completely smooth. So this kinda leads us all the way back to the firewall tag as being the only possible legit Z/28 item on the car still.

It's possible...the rest of the tag looked similar to mine.  I emailed the dealer to ask them to post pics of the engine stamp, trans, and rear end. So I am hoping to see those and compare them to mine.

The guy who posted the ad on craigslist, says he has the original drivetrain.

Not bad could be something if the numbers are verified. Looks to be originally frost green with a dark green interior. I am guessing that would dictate black stripes? Possibly a no spoiler car as well.

I wonder with these "buried treasure" type cars if you offered the guy a nice 69 base model somewhat restored driver, that they could enjoy right here right now as a trade if they would budge. Like the big block corvette in the other thread, if somebody offered that guy a 65, 66, 67 running 5 footer would he be willing to move on it. Just another strategy I have been thinking about to get these car lovers to move on with there life and a car they can enjoy now, instead of dreaming of what could be.

I think it is a bit higher than that, if you factor original docs or originality. Nice original cars seem to have eclipsed the restored cars Z or otherwise.

You know, it seems like everyone turns out quality work on here. I have never seen anything that a member did on here that wasn't top notch.

Just this past year you had guys buying real survivor cars and getting them road ready, and preserving the original paint, you BillOhio and Bentley getting quality work done on theirs. It seems like everyone on here has a good eye and wants to make sure everyone gets the most bang for their buck.
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This is a good looking car! on: January 01, 2015, 02:28:08 PM
Makes sense Gary.

That brings up another point. How many people would buy a car because it was a rare color verses a desirable color they liked. Personally if I'm going to spend that kind of money on a car and have to look at it all the time I want a color I like. JMO

There are a handful of guys on here that liked looking at it, and wished it was in their garage. Now I did not hear them say "I wish I had that car instead of my current Camaro".

So your planning on dropping it in the S-10 for the break in period right???    Cheesy

(good job Darrell)

Good point.
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hello on: December 31, 2014, 11:54:29 AM
you still have a day and 8 hours to go, plenty of time to retract your bid. There should have been better pics and description for that car IMO.
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: December 30, 2014, 10:26:38 PM
Bentley, I think Kurt is referring to the stamping font on the  gang stamp not matching, not that the vin numbers are different.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: December 30, 2014, 05:35:42 PM
Ok 2 questions. First in Johns report, shouldn't it say Pilot bearing, instead of throwout bearing? (I thought the pilot bearing was the one fitted to the back of the block) throw out bearing I thought was mounted to the clutch fork right?

Second in your post I didn't see if they were stamped using the same stamp, or 2 different gang stamps. Looking closely at my trans and motor it appears to be a different stamp, but maybe it just looks different because it is deeper into the softer aluminum on my trans?
