Very nice and fun to learn about the cars history and some good stories about it.

I wish I could do that onto car. My trail ends with the guy I got it from.

First-Congrats Dave! Were you inspired by my post about contacting previous owners? Vince's post about his car got me in gear and it paid off. Too bad the trail goes cold before 76~77 time period on my car. At least I know the last 3 owners now. I did not know the guy I got car from until this past October...can you imagine?

Second-C-Boy68ss AKA: YG with a C, Never say never. Check out this post:  a month ago by ME! I put an add on CL and got a call the next could have picked my jaw up off the floor! I have had this jewel(turd) since 79 (35 years) and never thought I would know any of its history. It was surreal to say the least.

A big welcome, most guys with 'original' cars, including myself, wish they were as clean and nice as yours. Your mods are tasteful IMO, and car came out real nice and I am sure, as you attest, it is fun to drive. Wink Glad you kept it a 327 car too.

Thanks, I should have re-read that before I posted. I guess I knew, but the old cranium is not hitting on all 8 these days, I guess.

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
291  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Look what my wife brought home for me just now. on: May 12, 2014, 08:32:30 PM
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.
292  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
295  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Trim Tag 69 Z10 on: May 11, 2014, 08:13:58 PM
 I'll give it an OK Wink IMO , if that is what you ask?
296  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.
