George-Love that Caddy. Is that in Florida? Guessing by the house color and style. Like you love the old pics and stories.
That was my Grand Fathers Florida car, their winter home in Hollywood Fl. was also pink & white, but the home in the picture was on their farm in Indiana. Home is still there but no-longer pink. George

She is drop dead gorgeous, Is it out of line, to ask the $ amount ?  Just trying to get an idea of how much I need to have at the ready.
I thought I was buying a fairly rust free all original car and was willing to pay a little extra. Turned out I had to replace the quarters, wheel wells, 1' square of the floor, and trunk floor so that killed my initial budget. I can't do bodywork or painting in my shop so I sent that out. I also farmed out the seat covers, headliner, vinyl top install, chrome work, and trans overhaul. All the assembly and remainder I was able to do over 3 years, with allot of help from CRG guys. I probably have 65K invested total but saved 30K in my labor if I had to pay a shop to restore it. Just a guesstimate. George

I received my judging sheet today and got full points for my trim ring combination.

That is good news, your car showed very well, great attention to details. Now I will be checking for the mail early. Was it scored as you expected? George

Nick I really get a kick seeing these old vintage pictures and hearing the interesting stories. Looks like you are doing a great job on the restoration also.
My first car was a hand me down from Grama to my father to me at 15. A 1956 PINK Cadilac. What a tank, my sister took out a 4" tree trunk and it didn't even dent the bumper. Car is long gone. But I watched one on Ebay, maybe some day I'l get another one. George

Darrell or George was the studs for the early 69 spoiler (Short one) and the later spoiler (longer one) in the same place on the lid? 
I have both short & long spoilers and the stud location is the same. George

Guys beside keeping track of the tabs we may also want to note the oval hole stamped in the lower center of the lid. I have not seen that on most original lids, but have seen that on most NOS lids. It may be related to the stamping plant. This NOS lid was stamped out at the "T" stamping plant. Noted by the upper arrow in this picture. Another piece to the puzzle. George

John thanks for the spoiler acorn nut picture, that is one of the points I lost at the Nationals. The reproduction nuts are too short. George

Happy Birthday Gary !! 1953 was a good year for Camaro guys. George

I had my BB curved neck radiator rebuilt by Bob Hagerty at Classic Radiator Restorations in Curran MI. I was really impressed with the quality of his work and attention to original details. Even the shipping crate he made was impressive. George

I am thinking this is what we are referring to tabs, I see them on the 67,68, & up to middle 69.  Vince thanks for the picture that's the lid I need. George

Darrell, are you referring to the picture you posted? That would be a Stamping plant code and the week like "H44". When the Firebirds were started to be built at Norwood they used the same trunk lid as the Camaros. The Firebird Trans-Am had a center mounted spoiler and utilized the holes I referred to as Trans-Am holes. George

Sorry about the side track on the Nationals, this probably should be split off but I will add to it before it splits. I was told I have a 67 trunk lid because there are no additional forward emblem holes. picture 1. Second picture is from a 68 no holes for Trans-Am spoiler. Third picture 2-69 original paint car but spoiler was added, and has holes for Trans-Am spoiler. I assume my 11-68 car needs a lid like second picture. Let me know what you think and if you have a nice lid for sale. George

While at the Nationals I met a guy from CRG and we talked about my car having the wrong year trunk lid. He mentioned he had several nice lids. I wrote his name after our conversation but can't find it now. If you read this can you contact me, I am very interested. I need a nice late 68 - early 69 lid. George

Phil I had a great time last year talking with the retired workers, many interesting stories, and they seemed to like my partial completed car. I would enjoy coming back if possible. George

Scoop's attention to detail is amazing through out the whole car, it is unbelievable to get a perfect 100% score first time showing. Congratulations! I was kidding him about jacking up and centering his tires and he pointed out the valve stems are also centered correctly on the tires. Great guy with a sense of humor. George
