Great photos, thanks Mike

Meant to add in above post, can a "branded" title (don't know what that is, being overseas) become a full clear title if the vehicle is rebuilt and passes inspection, or does it always remain on that type of title regardless?

Kevin,
Sad story for sure, I can only imagine how you must feel to see that beautiful car go up in flames.....
Now there are a couple of things I'd suggest:
1) if you get the software recommended earlier, please post some pictures of the car, damaged and undamaged areas so we can comment on what looks rescuable (is that a proper word?) and what probably isn't.
2) as for current value, the truth is likely to be that the parts are worth more individually than as a complete car. But a good ballpark place to start may be the valuation that your insurance company put on the wreck i.e. what you bought it back for. If they paid out the appraised or agreed value as a total loss, then they know what it was worth and would have tried to recoup as much of that as they could.
3) people are probably only asking after the car because nobody wants to see a previously-beautiful classic in a sorry state.
4) you obviously enjoyed the car, and while it may be unpleasant to look at it as it sits today, as a number-matching car, it deserves to be returned to it's previous condition (as you said). Have you thought about getting it professionally restored, more costly that you doing it, but you won't have to put yourself through tearing it all down and doing it again.
Hope this helps, and look forward to pictures!

Mike, pics would be much appreciated when you have an opportunity.
Thanks, Tim

Interesting, the one pictured did look quite short. Assuming you use the jack base, and then the special curved wingnut, to secure the spare, wonder if that'd run out of length? I didn't mention bolt length for space saver spare because I thought that was only an option with 14" wheels, is that correct? I know the coupes and convertibles used different bolts due to the position of the spare in the trunk, maybe the 'vert has the shorter one?
126  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Who would be interested in buying a replacement passenger seat cable? on: June 14, 2014, 04:57:34 AM
I'd be in for 2 gray cables (assuming of course that you'd be happy to post the to Australia at my cost?).
Steve, I'd still be interested in 2 gray cables and 2 sets of mounting bolts, if you're happy to ship to Australia. Just let me know total and your PayPal email details by PM. Interested in a couple of the special washers too, if you end up getting them made.
(And before anyone points out only 1 cable is required per car, I have an original cable but want a couple of spares while they're available).
127  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Who would be interested in buying a replacement passenger seat cable? on: June 14, 2014, 04:52:44 AM
I would. Sent you a PM from T.C. an CRG. I need the bolt and cable in black. PM sent.
Gary, the original 69 cable I have is gray, I thought the black was 67 and maybe 68 too?

Great, thanks for the pictures. Much appreciated.
129  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Length of J-bolt for spare in trunk on: June 13, 2014, 09:23:23 PM
Could someone with a 69 Z please confirm the finish, correct overall length, and thread length, of the original factory J-bolt hook that is used to hold down the 15" spare in the trunk?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Well I hope it's not a member here, but they have removed the RS grille badge in the new ebay ad pics.

Looks like the person who just bought it is a flipper:

Ue, no worries and hope it was of some use!

Very nice photos Steve. I like the fact that the last photo, showing the Joe Chamberlain car, also has the Terry Allen car in the background.
135  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: June 11, 2014, 05:13:47 AM
Ue, it's not in the best condition, but you may be interested in this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/360306775272
If so, better be quick as it has a couple of watchers and a few offers been made.
Note that it won't quite fit a standard size Aus plate, but depending what state you're in, you can get standard US-sized plates, NSW (where I am) being one of them. Otherwise just a cool bit of relevant period memorabilia for your shed/workshop wall.

EDIT: did some searching. Found a thread regarding a car that was sold new from that dealership, link HERE. Couple of the photos show 2 different addresses, which look (as best I can tell) like:
Corner S Riverside & Barnett, Medford OR
and
227 E 9th PO Box Medford OR
Can't find anything current under that dealer name, although there is still a dealer on S Riverside - Dollar Buick GMC.
Also note that on the 1980 paperwork via the link above, the dealer code is 19-108, which is different from the 19-107 on your NCRS Report; seems the dealer codes could change over the years, so would imagine sometime between when your car sold and 1980 it was changed from 107 to 108.
