31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: restoring YH rims on: January 01, 2015, 06:29:48 PM
I'm definitely not a body and paint guy by any means, so just thinking out loud here. I think when it comes time to do my YH wheels I will chemically strip them for fear of getting the sand or plastic or (whatever is used for blasting) down in the cracks and crevices of the wheels. Then if there are pits I would probably just use poly to fill, sand and prime before painting. Now that's a finish carpenter by trade talking so now the experts can take over Smiley

I thought maybe a big money guy would buy this Z to put in his "collection" so he could say " I have a rare, one of one car."  I agree with Gary, it sure seems to be a very nice, quality restoration. Again, for that price I wouldn't be surprised if it was a no sale. A couple of years ago I was seriously looking at a Cortez Silver X33 project on Ebay. I even went to Kansas City to look at the car. A couple of days later I called the guy to see if he would take an offer off Ebay and he said he was wanting a little more than my offer. He told me there was a local guy that was top bid at the time that was wanting the car badly. A couple of days later I watched it "sell" for about 7K more than my offer. I thought, well he did the right thing in letting the auction run out. About a year later the same seller that I had talked with had the car on Ebay again, this time however it was fully restored. He had either not sold the car and he or a buddy was the top bid or maybe the deal simply did not go through, I had asked him to call me if his Ebay deal fell through and I never heard back from him.
Maybe Clem can confirm the sale.

I sure would have thought that car would have went for more than that. Of course one never really knows how those deals on Ebay really turn out and if the sale is real or not.

Very cool Jon, I love that car!

Thanks for the info on this car!  Are we absolutely positive that there should not be a Tonawanda built 302?
If JohnZ says there were none then I would take that to the bank.

37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct engine paint suggestions please! on: December 30, 2014, 10:48:49 PM
You guys were gracious enough when I first asked this question to offer many great suggestions. I thought I would show what I decided to use for the engine color paint on my 66 big block. I thought some might find it interesting that we found the 69 Hugger Orange color matched almost spot on with my bracket which is an early take off survivor, original paint, smog bracket(you can see the bracket before I stripped it sitting on top of the intake). My friend that owns a body shop came over to shoot it for me. He uses Glasurit paint at his shop. I decided to not go with a complete exhaust manifold overspray, even though I do agree that is how it was originally done at Tonawanda. Thanks again for all the help!

Nice detailed description Chris. Does sound like a special car. Yes on the four leaf springs on 68 Z's. Good luck whichever way you go.
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Interesting Craigslist Finds on: December 22, 2014, 12:44:17 AM
That's what I thought Kurt. If it is a legit ad I thought maybe someone up in that area might want to go check it out.

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?

X22 car? Yes! Thanks Tim, you are one of the great ones here, if I may ad.

 Kiss Oh you hugger orange guys should start your own site..... Lips Sealed

 Cheesy

I thought this one was our site...   Smiley 

lol,  Good one Gary. I knew that one was coming.

No POP definitely hurts it

Since 95% do not have POPs at this late date, I'd phrase that differently...    "If it HAD the POP, it would have definitely helped it!".. Smiley
Gary, you are right but in this instance he started out with the understanding that the POP was apart of the deal and we were all giving him advice based on that info. But once the misunderstanding came out and there was not a POP for this car then my opinion changed concerning its value.
