Happy Birthday ! Cold outside ,but warm in the shop Smiley

We were up in Boyne a few weeks ago ,they said 10 degrees is a heat wave !  Cleveland has not been much warmer this winter. Tons of snow.

Decide on a shock yet?

or...maybe some strange desire to not put it back on the road just yet? Only takes one uninsured low life....Z is looking so pretty on the lift! Just as soon put the booster in the curio cabinet...but my wife probably would frown on it!

MAINTENANCE   Grin


care or upkeep, as of machinery or property:
"With proper maintenance the car will last for many years."


" I had my booster re-plated to maintain  the pit free surface"
" Some very small areas of my quarters were repaired to maintain the rest of the flawless sheet metal" Just kidding ,I'm not really restoring or rebuilding ,just going through it. LOL ! At a snail's pace.

I did not, however mine was in good shape to begin with, but it did need to be re-plated. Having talked to Steve , proper prep is a must for longevity. His is a solid name in the industry ,returns your calls ASAP ,and is a downright friendly guy on the phone. We ended up talking about proportioning valve finish ( see Chick's thread). Of which I'm sending out shortly + dust shields.( been a busy winter).

Reminds me ,I got to get a few items out to him.

CHP did mine, sent some pics of it to Steve (requested). Nothing negative was said about it.

Original owner paid 6 months of payments only.  I would love to buy a car and make only 6 months of payments and still get to own it 42 years later.  What a deal!  Not going to happen.

The insurance company paid off the bank for the whole car.  Who do you think should own the rights to it now?  Just sayin. Smiley
interesting.

#2 owner of my Z had a Camaro stolen from the pits at the drags.(late 60's) Story goes he actually grabbed onto it as it was rolling away...lost in  history. Probably still a peel car. Anyway, bought the Z slightly used ,some speed goodies+cowl hood at the same dealer and stayed happy until he sold it for a Tr7 in 76. Insurance appeared to pay off.

Did she buy another Vette? Or did she say phooey on those steep payments ?

Problem is with just about everything these days ,not so much about what is right.

I understand technically she never owned the car because it was being financed ,and with appreciation the water gets pretty murky. But wouldn't it make a good story ?..... Then she rolls it at Barrett Jackson Cheesy


Curious to see who ends up with it. Surprised it wasn't stripped down all those years ago ?

And....from the 80's, guy with a scarf sipping a drink. ( somebody my age will find the link Smiley)

BTY ,don't rely on a rev test to prove it's a 302!  My 400 took 7800 shifts for years. But that was what it was built for.(block still alive and well) Barnfind 302 may be a little warmed over and it's best days past.

History of this car will fill some blanks. Head casting numbers/date codes...trans..rear end... crank (all of which could be found on this site) will revel what you have. May have been decked?

14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Fat & Furious - King of Camaros Episode on: February 17, 2015, 04:27:13 PM
I watched 1 episode and they lost me.....these guys been around a long time. Seem to remember them running big block Camaros, " Big Boy's Toys" something like that ,anyway they know their stuff. I hate it when these shows put a distributor in 180 out  to " chase" created problems. Big arguments ,blah, blah, blah...
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Finally Got My Flathead Running on: February 13, 2015, 08:21:23 PM
It was a long time ago.. " Flat Head Forever" generation. He was out having fun with it...

Any more on the car or the old salt flat racer (birthplace of Hot Rodding don't forget ,cut him some slack) Anyone can buy one from a dealer I think they used to say.

Younger guy in Cali building Flatheads still, torch was passed from a legend.
