91  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: December 30, 2014, 09:26:09 PM
I've seen a few examples in 69 where they didn't match.
I guess I try to understand why there is a mismatch in some stampings when that is noted. John certainly could verify this, but a plausible reason, IMO, is that in a hurried environment and some carelessness factored in, some trans or other units may have gotten damaged before they made it into the chassis and had to be replaced, hence a different stamping. Just throwing that out there while it was on my mind.

New Yahoo article that I thought may interest T/A fans.

Ah yes, I saw that one too. I'd leave it as is and drive it like I stole it...providing the subframe doesn't fly out from the rust and torque,lol. A few good holeshots should loosen up what loose rust is there.

Thankful for the Lord seeking me out at the age of 26- PTL and thankful for those He has put in my path this past year, much thanks to all that have been a blessing to me here. Looking forward to a better, more productive New Year.

I wonder if any CRGers know anything about the whereabouts of the traded in car at the bottom of the yellow paper work? 68 Camaro N355597?
97  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: A Friend in Need... on: December 19, 2014, 06:26:46 PM
That's why I'm such a fan of this site, like-minded people who often go the extra mile to help a fellow member.
Glad you got the car with no issues or missing parts Bentley; is that the X22 car? issues or missing parts Bentley; is that the X22 car?  Issues, missing parts? , not sure about this as I have not had a chance to look over my parts or the work completed, so there may be an issue or something missing, won't know this for awhile.
X22 car? Yes! Thanks Tim, you are one of the great ones here, if I may ad.

What would t136 mean. Shouldn,t that be an X code on a 12D car?

A: It is a Van Nuys car, so no.
99  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / A Friend in Need... on: December 18, 2014, 07:18:45 PM a friend indeed! Although there are several interpretations, I always translate as: real friends help when you are in a time of need. And I was in real need and SgtHawkUSMC gets a huge thanks from me as well as CRG and what it provides to the hobbyist.
My Camaro has been at a body shop/restoration shop for 8 months. I got some disheartening news recently. The guy is closing shop, so he says, and would not be finishing my car as agreed. He informed me I had to pick up my car and all loose parts(many) by the end of the month. I planned on renting a trailer , but weather, here in the Midwest, is unpredictable and an open trailer was not the best scenario. In my desperation, I reached out to SgtHawk and asked if he had time to help me get my car? This was on a Friday (last week). He quickly replied and hastily came up with a plan to meet me at the shop in Ft. Wayne, In. the next day, Saturday (I am East of Cincy, Ohio, Hawk is in Mi.). I am glad to say that it all went off without a hitch and Hawk has my car at his house now. I am thankful that there were no problems getting the car and I am not as stressed and concerned about the car's well being now. I did not have a bad experience with the body guy and stayed amicable and cordial although I am deeply disappointed that I still have an unfinished car with so much time passing. I just wanted to convey the gratefulness of members, here, to help me and even though I hated to ask of this quick favor, Hawk rose to the challenge and for this I give my thanks. Hope to find someone local to finish car as another saying comes to mind: "Once bitten, twice shy". I may take it to another member, here, to finish, but this long distance experience has not been real positive.

To answer the 1st question (which largely will answer the other ?'s): In a word - NO. That is why there are terms like rookie, newbie...etc, because average Joes cannot tell. And that is good, why? If everyone knew, then there would not be "rookies", everyone would be a Pro and everyone would know what to do to perfect the fake world we live in. So, leave it to the Pros on here and post a pic and they will give an honest evaluation to help avoid the fake trap.
101  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: COST OF BUYING CARS WITH OR WITHOUT RUST on: December 06, 2014, 10:09:50 AM
Trying to stay on topic. For me, it is a "learning curve". Once I buy a project, I really start to learn and absorb all I can about it. Kinda wish I could have all the interest and facts beforehand, but never happens that way. So, the passion really intensifies once I have it in my hands. I also agree with Gary. Rather have a diamond in the rough, untouched. You can just get a better "feel" for the car and what kind of life it has had. Don't want something that has major issues covered over with paint. Maybe it is just my personality or perhaps, my budget, but most artifacts I have including cars, gas pumps, tractors and such, I get them mechanically right, but leave them as found. This Camaro is my 1st restoration and I am starting to regret that decision for several reasons. I really do not have a good grasp of what it will cost to do work right as far as paint and sheet metal. It seems so subjective.
