Think not. Oh and GM would be out of business today if not for a bail out instituted your elected politicians.

Peace Smiley

As far as I'm concerned, GM should have went out. If my business goes bankrupt, who bails me out? Nobody. Oh, that's right, I'm not one of the "special" people who get bailed out by the taxpayer. (nor do I wish or expect to be) Politicians didn't ante up the bail out funds. They took funds from me, and millions of other tax payers.
I guess we're going to keep talking politics. If your business goes "bankrupt"  you are being "bailed out" depending on how you file you will only be responsible for a portion or none of your incurred debt and in some cases can continue to operate your business. Who pays for that? other consumers, business owners and tax payers. Unfortunately some people both conservative and liberal use this as a business model. Bail outs for big businesses are a touchy subject a lot of jobs and effects on the economy at stake, although I don't think that the "top dogs" running these failed businesses should come out of it virtually unscathed.
Did I mention that i am a fan of the "flat hood" 69 Z/28's?

We're not disagreeing.. Smiley    One could remove the hood, and it still would be a Z28.. Smiley

 WTF ???I thought this was a site for Camaro enthusiasts. Instead I see people using the site to spew political rhetoric and BS. Instead of hijacking a thread to voice your political OPINIONS, try limiting your input to information relating to cars. If you feel like blogging politics with others sure to agree with you try http://blogs.foxnews.com/
As for the $2 vs $77 registration increase, that increase is over 45 years and in the same 45 years GM has increased the price of a new Z/28 from around $4,000 to a whopping $75,000. Another government plot? Think not. Oh and GM would be out of business today if not for a bail out instituted your elected politicians.

That"s "retarded expensive" I wonder if I can sell the chrome plated Hurst T handle that I put on my Z 32 years ago and buy the correct one. I think I gave the original away. Can't remember and can"t find it!

Hate to be a Debbie Downer but I'll bet about half of those Vettes won't be recovered. Too dangerous, sinkholes are extremely unstable and the cars not shown in the pics look like they are under tons of dirt and concrete. RIP

That's brutal. Should have been the Ford Museum, or the Hugger Orange Museum.....Relax I'm only kidding
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rosewood Wheel on Ebay on: February 10, 2014, 04:31:39 PM
WOW that's over 5 times what I paid for my 70 1/2 RS in about '83 and over twice what I sold it for in '89. and 3 times more than I paid for a decent '69 Camaro i the early 80's and more than I paid for my '69 Z (glad I still have that on cause it has a rosewood wheel). None of the cars were NOS but they all had nice steering wheels (+ 4 0ther wheels, 5 with the spare and fly wheels) (:

Ed you can see that your temp gauge looks brushed on the face but the rest look silver.  Kinda hard to tell.  Can you look when you have time and see if all are brushed?
I think the finish on Ed's are all brushed. Just more noticeable due to the flash on the temp and oil gauge. Just checked mine they are all brushed and original as far as I can tell. I tried to take a picture but too much flash glare.

16" x 4" are the midyear Corvette dimensions, but that's not a Corvette steering wheel; I doubt if its a GM wheel at all with the sharp/abrupt bend where the spokes join the rim.

I have had a couple of these carbs and have seen no evidence of such. I'll stick my neck out (until proven otherwise) that this is a bunch of "horse hockey". These cars were mass produced, not blueprinted.
"horse pucky" or "bull pucky" not "horse hockey" Smiley at least where I'm from
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / What is it ? on: February 08, 2014, 12:11:26 AM
What is it Huh Too deep for a 69. Too small diameter for 67/68. Weird finish and looks bent.

Nice pebble grain steering wheel, but no "302" emblems on the "original" hood
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z/28 Barn Find?? on: January 24, 2014, 10:59:08 PM
Must have been hot in that barn, because the rear stripes shrunk! I call BS on this one
Did the stripes shrink? I think they were in the barn so long that they got lonely and moved closer together.

Nice looking car YES
Barn Find Depends on your definition of BARN FIND
Did it have the black grille when it went into the barn?
