256  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: TRIALS AND TRIBULATION OF FINDING ORIGINAL DRIVE TRAIN OF 69 CAMARO L 78 on: April 14, 2014, 06:38:16 AM
A couple of comments: Sad ending, Vince. I lost my job of 15 years at 40 years old went back and got a Bachelors degree. That and $1 will buy me a cup of coffee. When you lost your job, it sounds like you could/should have started a detective agency with your prowess for tracking down information. You said you recently came upon the phone number of the buyer of your car from 2009, how do you keep track of that stuff?? I can't find a phone number after, say, a day!!?lol

Vince, That is awesome, to say the least. I really dig these tales and what tenacity it took, but success in the end. Just love it. Make sure and post us some pics when you have time. I am especially interested in 69 BB Camaros...High horse even better! Wink

Perhaps it is my ignorance, but I thought it would be comfortweave, like my 712 car.

We will reopen the shirt site in the spring.  We are also planning on doing sweat shirts.  

Steve, Good to know there will be another opportunity to get a shirt. When you state that you are planning on doing sweat shirts, do you mean ONLY sweat shirts? or in addition to T-shirts? I am kinda hot blooded and I am sweating as I write. I need something light weight. I will get a sweat too...still have memories of this past winter, brrr!

Lots of accuracy issues starting with the trim tag...
Personally, I am not good at this(trim tag authenticity), but I will provide the pic-here:

The quality of the work is outstanding. The accuracy of the restoration is lacking; they should have consulted with someone that knew ‘69s better than they did. There are a number of errors; some stuff can easily be corrected, some can’t.  
I was thinking the same thing, William, as I saw it last night. I see were they lowered the price already $99,500, was $125,000. The car is very nice and I like the color, of course, one of my favorite colors. It just seems for this caliber of restoration, some small things were overlooked. Like you said, the owner should have had someone go over the car and fix what could be, detail wise, before pics were taken. IMO.

SS hood or ZL2?

SS Bullitt...Of course, all things mentioned (color,stripes,etc.) are the way the car came (born with). I have been thinking to myself recently, what could I do to make the car stand out? I would like it to be a little more distinctive. Just too many "cookie cutter" H.O. cars out there to suit me. That is why I am not adding all the add ons you always see like spoilers or ralley wheels, ZL2 or gauges, you know what I mean. The reality is that I will be lucky just to get the car back together, much less add embellishments. But, I would like to hear from you guys about any ideas (realistic, serious and tasteful) you may have that I could consider to make the car unique or instantly recognizable.  I am thinking a day 2 look, with my traction bars, Sun tach, maybe a set of fat and skinny Cragars. I also like some of the Baldwin/Motion add ons. I do have a pair of NMW tow tabs. What are your thoughts, guys?

SO out of thousands of Camaros, this could be the first I have heard of re-uniting the original motor with the Car after so many years apart.
Really? I know of more than 10.....
Cut him some slack, Bullitt does not want to acknowledge the H.O. re-unitings,lol.
I remember the car in Texas with the L78 ,  I think you put him in touch with the original car Kurt?! Then there is a fellow CRGer that has a L78 69 block that the original car's owner was not interested in obtaining.

 Thanks for all the encouragement. Glad I don't have to "go it" alone and have others who have been down this road. I've used those tires for "rollers" for about 40 years now. Always seem to hold air or maybe they are petrified. lol. I wish this guy would join the site. He is very knowledgeable although his expertise is with the Chevelle. I asked him a few key questions that only an enthusiast of the car would know, like where the trunk seal gap should be. He answered everything correctly. That is one reason I feel strongly that he will do a great job. Nothing that he looked at rust wise seemed to be a concern, He saw the car in person for the first time today and already gave a plan how he would go about the repairs. He indicated it would be this fall before completion. I know as things progress, I will become more and more eager and impatient. Can't wait to see progress pics as it takes shape. This has been a long time coming and I am ready to see it get done. It will be, of course, H.O. with black top and black D90 and black tail panel and rockers. No spoilers and XT 14x7 rims with dog dish caps and endura bumper. Thanks a ton CRG.

...I will miss you, X22. Yes, this is the beginning of the Body Process. Mr. Birdwell (MRLS6) has it in his very capable hands and I have full faith and confidence that he will do my car justice. Praise the Lord that he was put in my life to do this special job. Thanks to Buenymayor for putting us together,  as MRLS6 did his car also. Wish me luck and updates will be coming as work progresses. Pic of my car leaving just an hour ago heading to Ft. Wayne, In.

Over and....not Out yet...Thank God for that, Danny. So glad you are back, hang in there. You have a lot of catching up to do. In your posts reading, try not to laugh too hard...don't want any wounds coming open, ya know. Gosh, you were missed and prayed for by many. We were all in this together.
