There are a number of guys on here into other makes and models, we all just happen to all be fans of 1st gen Camaros as well. Smiley

Other "toy" out back is 2400# full on race 48 Anglia. I love earlier Ford trucks. Want a TRI 5 Gasser. Dad's picking at a 38 International with SBC ,shortened bed ,Fatman Fab front end...who don't dig Mustangs??

No, point here is cars being presented as being restored demanding high prices with multi issues covering layers of filler.

If top dollar is being paid for repairs , attention to detail pretty %$# well be a priority of the shop. Now, if the owner wants to cut costs, that's on them. Most legit shops will turn them away not wanting their name associated with the work. More cash in insurance jobs ,that's nothing new.

It's sad when you here stories of the retired couple who finally buy the car of their dreams, only to find it needs more $$$ to get it right. And, via these reality shows, dirty nasty undercarriages are becoming par for the course! "Drivers" they call them. I call it " little attention to detail" or "short cutting"  Perfumed Pigs...

That was why I converted to single pistons years ago: 1. caliper availability/price. 2. clearance issues for aftermarket wheels. I am not a proponent of spacers. On the street I ran the rally's, at the strip Cragers as front runners.

I would also browse Team Camaro ,tons of threads on this. Keep in mind 69's allow for a little more tire then 67-68's

Putting the 4-pistons back on ,so this is a big topic of interest to me.  E-70's on the rally's ,  also Torque Thrusts with ?? tire.

My buddy who shot my car has some pics of others work he has corrected. Pretty cars initially , but a lot of filler discovered underneath. Believe it or not , a clean one was a rare find 30 years ago, in NE Ohio anyway. Unless it wore a special badge or primarily  was a Drag car, it was nothing unique seeing them in ruddy brown primer rotting away in a field or junk yard for that matter. When I was hitting some meets in the late 80's early 90's the cars around me were already on their 1st build. Guys would question me about the Z still wearing it's original paint. And that was a long time ago. I have posted before, as has many, have the car inspected before buying. Not that my car is going to be on the chopping block anytime soon, but if it was ,I would see no problem going in halves with a potential buyer to have the car professionally inspected.

Also brings up a question on certification. How long is the time frame before one questions the validity? One would think if your shelling out 50-60-70K+( and up) for a car ,for a few grand you would have JM standing next to you. But I'm a cynic.

also no other markings other then UP.  No rust on it, just some rustproof splatter. Looks like an item that tends to be "over restored" I'm still floored what they ask price wise for these things! Used to trip over them in the junk yard. Going to continue it's life on the shelf.

Back from Brake Boosters, next to go out are the proportioning valve and metering block. Sort of interesting the difference between the R and L stamping. This is what was once under all the black tar and paint. Then hood release , z bar , hinges...
