Yes, it's an original HO car (if you're into that - sorry Gary, couldn't resist Smiley) and yes, does have a right hand mirror. More on the story, with photos, here:

(and my apologies for having well and truly side-tracked this thread)

At the time I talked to Shane he was working on a right hand drive 69 Z28. I had a pic of it at one time but as computers go boom sometimes, it went to the electronic dimension in the sky.
Here it is, very nice, unrestored Hugger Orange car - converted to RHD when imported here as a new car, and still remains RHD. Kind of threw me when I first saw the car with the fender pinstripes as well as the Z stripes, but apparently they were added a very long time ago so he left them alone:

Wow...I nearly forgot about Shane. I spoke with him around the time I bought my Z in 2000. Tim, he's not in your neck of the woods is he?
Yes he is Gary - and still in the car business, although last time I caught up with him, he confessed to buying a couple of Mopars recently...... Yikes! He's moving over to the dark side.
Nice story about the double header, enjoyed hearing about it straight from the guy that discovered it.

Reminded me of the "double header" cutaway show car when I first saw the picture!

If that is the same car I'm thinking of (ebay), the spare wheel in the trunk has taken a big hit too - the wheel rim is visibly bent. Just don't understand how people include pictures like this in a sales ad, but then again, are they unaware, or just (silently) disclosing issues?

Danny, words aren't easy at a time like this, but let me say my thoughts are with you and I wish you all the best for the days ahead.

That image is from my photobucket album. I created the jpg image by taking a screen grab of the relevant page of the PDF version of the AIM, and then pasting it into a photo editing program and saving as a jpg file. You can download the PDF version of the entire AIM here:

Thanks Kurt.

Spectra tanks are Ni Terne coated.
What's the process for that Scott? I take it that it involves at least a Nickel coating.

I'd say we have a winner......(and maybe back as far as the first reply)
222  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Windshield / Rear Window retainer clips or straps on: February 23, 2014, 01:55:22 AM
Rob, I'll leave the experts to answer for sure, but I recall being told that the straps prevented body flex under heavy torque from literally popping the glass out of the body.
I guess that a build-up of air pressure at speed (assuming at least the driver's window was down) could also tend to blow the rear window out, as well as the body flexing due to torque?
223  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Galvanizing a Fuel Tank on: February 22, 2014, 08:38:25 PM
Bob, I have been involved with hot-dip galvanizing of structural steel sections, but never thin-section base metal such as a fuel tank. Nor can I recall the % make-up of material used. Therefore, can't comment with any direct knowledge, but my thoughts are:
- the process may distort the shape of the tank.
- the existing holes in the tank (such as filler neck and sender hole) while large diameter, may not be best positioned to allow fast draining of the zinc on removal from the tank.
- the finish may not be suitable to you from a visual point of view, being an industrial coating as opposed to an architectural finish.
Having said that, I believe the reproduction tanks (such as those made by Spectra) have a gal finish, but not sure of the process used; it may be that they are produced from a cold-galvanized material.....
Perhaps best to contact a local company that does this process and discuss?

Yup, just checked, no stamp around the heater box, just on top of the cowl. 05a (really june sometime) L5303xxx
Thanks for checking Kevin - mine's an 04A build. Wonder if it was a widespread omission over several months, or just occasional Huh
