I gotcha, well maybe when ya get the nomad done. Just trying to think of ways to get them working for you.

I was suggesting driving a big orange look at me car down there might garner a bit more attention, and if they knew it might have sold from their dealership might be a neat story, that the son may reach out to a few guys to try to figure it out. If he was smart could try to drum up some publicity out of it as well, so a win win situation. At least that is how I might sell it....

maybe it would jog his memory and may mean more if you "drove" your Z down there?Huh

(How is it coming with the actual Z car ?)

(Or the nomad??)

Welcome to the site!
Nice to see a 20 something on here, there are a few younger guys on here and then some like me in their 30's, then you have all the crotchedy older  guys .... Cheesy
J/K. The CRG has a lot of great members.

Your car looks nice. I assume you do most of the driving these days. Do you still get quality time with your grandfather working on it?

You asked about repairing it: I have seen dent pullers get stuff out that was very similar to that. Big dents no paint loss, I would look into that first, they may be able to get 99% of that dent out with the special tools and know how now a days.
Just a suggestion, good luck with it.

I have seen items for Piedmont Chevrolet, let me see if I can find them.
352  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: May 10, 2014, 10:30:39 PM
ok that sounds logical. So is there a good list that accounts for the changes and dates for guys like Gary (really there is no one like Gary)..   Wink
353  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Capitol Chevrolet in Austin, Texas on: May 10, 2014, 10:15:57 PM
nice find.
354  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: seen this 68 Z on ebay if anyone is looking on: May 10, 2014, 11:25:23 AM
Are you aware of a 'restored' '68 Z28 that you would choose over that unrestored car?? 
That's a trick question, right?

I was thinking the same thing.  Gary must not have seen Chicks build thread over on Team Camaro.  Hands down the nicest 68 Z restoration I have seen to date.

No, I haven't seen his build thread...  I've only been 'back on' my Camaro for 3-4 yrs, and I don't often get to TC, except to check out the classified, or to post a 'how to' question.   Please note:  I'm not 'casting aspersions' at anyone's restored Camaro, especially not Chick's, whom I've learned to be a very knowledgable Camaro enthusiast during my time here at CRG.   I was only saying that *I personally* prefer to buy original unrestored cars, the nicer and more complete the better, than a 'restored' car (esp one that I didn't KNOW as a Z28 before the restoration).  It's difficult-impossible to ascertain 'after the fact', whether the perfectly restored part on the restored car was in fact ORIGINAL to that car, or not!  Coupled with the fact that this Z28 in question is 'complete' wtih smog/etc (obviously original to the car) makes it VERY UNUSUAL... and I like it very much!  Smiley


I agree with Gary, without seeing the resto I know Chick does quality work. BUT for me, there is something about an original driver, that is in good condition.

This particular 68Z I think if it was mine I would just thoroughly detail it the way it is. I have a couple of knowledgeable paint guys in town, and I would bring the car to them to get their opinion on how to buff and polish the existing paint. You would be surprised how they can use todays products to bring the luster back to old paint. After trying to protect and bring back all the original finishes, I would just drive it baby!

P.S. Danny in recent years California has changed its stance, and the seller is responsible for back fees, not the buyer .

That license frame is cherry!

 I would take the original license frame over a hat any day. (but I know you would have liked to have both)

I was hoping if I started this thread that would have been enough karma for me to find the Edelbrock Chevrolet license frame I am after....
I think its going to take a lot more good will on my part... Cheesy

356  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Now that you know what dealer originally sold your car.... on: May 09, 2014, 07:41:13 PM
might be cool, this thread for guys looking, another thread for items found.
357  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Now that you know what dealer originally sold your car.... on: May 09, 2014, 07:36:09 PM
That is based off a real one I am told though. Looks good. Cool
358  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: May 09, 2014, 01:19:38 PM
Hey guys instead of waiting for old dealer items to pop up why not post wanted ads on CL right before a swap meet,or a web site for a year or so... you never know a former dealers kids or grand kids may be setting on the stuff you guys want.

lol, only problem is all the spammers and trolls. I have tried it, all I got were responses like " I have what you want, contact me and lets get together"

Let me tell you something ...they do not have what you want.

gives a whole new meaning to: "try it you may get lucky"  Cheesy

WTG, thats what its all about. When you do your search on ebay, *hit the option to save the search. This way ebay will email you if anything pops up, and you don't need to do a search everyday.  Cool
