one lie will branch into many...what's under the pretty paint?

Is a pretty car per pics,  very poor choice of rear gear for a 302..why  Huh But relatively cheap fix.


Bids under real Z price....if it's clean...these cars aren't cheap to build Wink...if re-building right.

Bill I may run into, only a few hours south of me. Opinions vary but glad to see he's having the car shot. My "near future' is about a year or so. Slower you go ,the more you tend to do "better" College costs and trying to hit a few Gasser meets this summer with Dad will slow progress a tad.

Back to the thread: some joy may be found in selling off those Camaros. The guy who bought the EL Camino is a true car guy, did a great job in getting it back on the road (his kids are out of college LOL)  I'm also a PTA and had him in for rehab for some knee issues (small world) any way, he showed me pics of the car and extended the offer if my wife and I wanted to take  it out to Quaker State some time while I'm "rehabbing" the Z. The old SS goes from being poorly repaired to a guy's garage who was clueless how to fix it (20+ years)..full of rat turds, to my shop. Then to a guy who loves them, restores them and has it back in circulation. win-win. I always feel good about that story.

off the rear sub frame--under body ( 2 clips) to the junction. (at bracket hard to flex line)   When I was "playing with it", the line got bent , not kinked luckily. Not a hard fix, but I need reference for the correct bends.  Waaay off right now.

The farm my Dad went to when he bought the Z in 76 is now a subdivision(was in a barn, but not a barn find) World has changed a bunch since I was 9 ,and the Z really is a link to my past, memories. So one could understand why no price tag. But...and my wife did intervene, they really should be more than a shelf in the garage. ( as did my Dad ,LOL: " do something with the @#$g thing or sell it!" Last it was on the road was probably late 90's-2000. Trip to Drags in 02 (maybe),  302 dropped back in it , back of the shop to be a shelf. Time flys.

We built a drag Anglia, a Rat Rod , picked up a 68 SS  El Camino needing some love. Browsing Racingjunk in the meantime. Multi times the missis was on me to sell the "junk" ( El Camino was not junk!, needed some love!) and get to the Z. Honestly...I to loved going back to the shop ,having a beer, and looking at all the cool "stuff".

Soo.. 3 summers ago I'm in traffic heading to the Cleveland Clinic to sign papers for yet another "side" job I did not want ,but could not pass up. ( El Camino gone to a local guy who really loves them , car now looks great!) Called my buddy Bob and told him after 30+ years, you can finally shoot the car(his stipulations were original color, or would not do...no problem)

I am still dragging my heels , and really enjoy going upstairs in the shop , grabbing a freshly restored part of the shelf ,looking at it and repacking. Cars on the lift in fresh paint ,gawk at that a while then come in.

And to keep prolonging it ,plan on taking the complete rear-end to Moser ,have them outfit it with 4:30's (per Jerry Stahls'60's article) , Ford style bearings ,ends,retainers and hardened axles....because when it's done in the near future ,collecting dust it will be no more!

looking for pics of 68 rear hard line to flex line ( from sub frame to bracket)  my rear floor pan has 2 clip assemblies. seeing 1 in the build manual. Also bends appear different? Original to car , never repaired or spliced. Single line from engine compartment. thanks.

...so the cars were only a few years old when he bought them ? Then he let them sit and somewhat rot all these years? Futures now for him..JHC. They'll end up going in an estate auction.

Decide on a shock yet?
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Brake booster Remanufactured on: February 25, 2015, 06:35:13 AM
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!
