Too much rain makes corn rot in the ground! I farm, like Bill. Hope you stay safe. I, too, think about something happening to my car after all its been through and all I've been through, but if it does, so be it. HAving said that, I am sure the sun will come out, at least metaphorically, when it gets home. Good luck and stay safe. What do survivor ARKs go for these days?lol

I'll ad, my dailys are not newer or that pristine, but it still burns me when someone is so inconsiderate as this and, yes, I get mad when a ding shows up on anything I own, no matter how ratty. Just the idea that no one seems to care. My newest car is a 97, with 40k on it I will ad. Yea, I'm cheap, but it just doesn't seem to pay to have anything nice in today's world. When the kids were in car seats, I bought my wife the only new car we ever had and someone prompty "keyed it" down both sides and that was 20 years ago...still frosts me.
198  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / CE coded warranty engines on: May 12, 2014, 08:23:28 PM
A few questions that have been on my mind about warranty engines: 1) If a number, like CE0707, (just a random example) were deciphered, would that be the 707th warranty engine total for year 70  to include all warranty engines or specifically just that particular type, like the 707th L78 or DZ depending on which block it is stamped on? 2) A 70 engine could be in a 69 car, right, it was still under warranty? 3) would that CE be a short block only or long block or did CE include both?

Hate when things happen like this...hopefully your friends , here, will restore your faith in humanity by lifting you up. If not, go out and yell and kick something...won't help, can't(scratch that) could hurt though!!

All it takes is time and money  right?
Dad always said it was 3 ingredients, you named two. ENERGY is the third and that is in short supply as I age unfortunately.  You owe us some more pics though!! Tongue

 I'll give it an OK Wink IMO , if that is what you ask?
202  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: yh axles on: May 11, 2014, 05:50:53 PM
Maybe I was misinformed, so are you guys suggesting that there is no casting stamp on a 1969 z28 axle shaft ?  ( I was under the assumation that they were stamped "YH" )
I think you are referring to the wheel used on 69 Zs (late) which are stamped YH, not the axle. I'll go further and say (until refuted) that all 12 bolt axle shafts in production 1st gen. Camaros  (excepting perhaps JL8) are the same as far as temper/hardness and quality and interchangeability and there is not a "special" axle shaft in a Z. The 68-72 12 bolt Nova shares same shaft. There are posts regarding 12 bolts that explain better that not all 12 bolts, I.E. BE coded, and some service and low ratio R&Ps have differences in hardness. Never had any of that cool stuff, so will not comment further. Hope this helps. We are all learning.

Also yes i have all paperwork,invoice,protecta plate,mother in law is a horder  Grin. Funny story is my mother in law thought this whole time she had the <upgraded 6 cylinder> and I informed her it was the base 230. She stated NO I told the salesman I wanted a manual and V8 but the extra cost was almost 3 weeks of her pay. Cashier at A&P  Roll Eyes. Salesman showed her 2 6 cylinder cars and she stated I want the upgraded 6 cylinder. Guess what, the dealer just put the 250 air cleaner on the 230 car and sold it to her. They wrote upgraded engine on invoice Shocked.

Probably only applied the 250 sticker over the 230... Smiley    Just another example of why you believe NOTHING a salesman tells you, and to VERIFY everything....  Smiley
I was thinking about this very thing, sales/dealer doing whatever to sell a car and thought I would make this a post topic. We know what should have come on our cars, but a lot of possible hocus pocus on the dealer level to make a sale.

Just a little advice, don't be too persistent. Take a breather and get back occassionally. They are there to sell new cars and may see you as an agravation and just decide not to do you any favors, so I would not push the issue too much and ruffle some feathers. Stay with one contact person. You may offer an incentive as Vince suggests, but patience is the game at this point. Don't expect them to have the same enthusiasm or devote the time you would expect.

208  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stripe delete on: May 09, 2014, 12:02:48 PM
I think your reply should be directed to cook dw as that is the quote and your responses except for my tag. I can assure you there are no other colors under the paint and it has one respray of the same color that are in the hidden areas and I always thought it was LeMans blue, but could never be sure because of the tag. It could have been a stripe delete and added when resprayed. Don't know for sure. Only some areas were resprayed and most of the original paint is visible. I got rid of the original fenders years ago (mistake) as I bought NOS back in the day to replace them. Always been a puzzler to me. The paint you see in the pic on tag and top of cowl are GM original. Not sure where you see two colors, must be the lighting. lower part of tag is the black that came on tag. Car has not been messed with at least no accident or modifyed except for my tunnel ram which car still has the original components, intake was for pic only and I never ran it on the car. Owned since 79. You can see the silver XT rim behind my Centerline. Car also had P06 trim rings with dog dish caps. If money holds out after Big Block car is done, this will be next. It is very original.
209  Model Specific Discussions / 6-cylinder Camaros / Re: Slowly starting the 6 cylinder RS build from Hell on: May 09, 2014, 10:25:21 AM
I would like to know how many cars in the three years are out there with RS and a 6 cyl? That has to be a contradiction as an upgrade option (RS) was put on an otherwise sparse, basic car...I am with DW(cook dw) on this car would make a great DD if rust issues are addressed.

Great story and GREAT pics DavidS. Could you PM me about how the dash was repaired and the VIN tag, since mine is going through the "treatment", I'd like to know any pointers? Wink
