some connection to the Z, that 400 block was in the Camaro for around 15 years, the 302 was in the Anglia while it was a street rod.

I'm a real fan of QA-1's.  I've ran Koni's, Comp engineering. Currently I have a set of regular Monroe's in the front which offered a good street ride...


I became a QA-1 fan with the Anglia. We were running coil overs in the rear , Koni's in the front with springs dialed in to the weight of the car. Experimented with springs some to get the front end to launch "lazy" (car hits very hard). Frustrated I went with a set of coil overs in the front, single adjustable shock. Night and day. Never had bad harmonics during deceleration from the get go(springs) When the car is on a hard run is where the difference in shock quality is felt. This is a tube chassis, body welded to frame, engine plate, 89" WB drag car. Very good seat of the pants feel. I run anywhere from 125-140mph,depending on dial in, and the car just handles wonderful, even if peddling. No purposing, or erratic lifting. Wanna guess what's going on the Z when it gets buttoned up?

Simple turn of the knob adjusts compression/rebound. 16 clicks I think off the top of my head. So.. If you want to play at the strip you can lighten the rebound and keep it nose up like a 90-10, or play with it some and get the feel you are looking for on the street. BTY-tech department is great.

Happy 54 old man ! ( I'm still a year and some change from 1/2 a hundred)

Don't know about you but my phone is not "smart" someone told me flip phones are back in style??? what?

Blind without reading glasses, although all are scratched up from "shop use"....safety glasses LOL!

More interest in cars then, ah, other things on the net. (wife knows when I'm on line and say nice...I'm looking at a 7.5 certed tube chassis 67/68) followed by "this is what I'm gettin when the kid's outa college"

"tuners" are a stereo component, a "45" is a record.

Inseam no longer= to waist size

Know all the words to "Stairway to Heaven"

Sometimes get lost looking through a Summit catalog.   LS what ? I miss the world of simply small or big blocks. Although I am a fan of "big cube" small blocks!

Wake up at various time throughout the night for no reason Huh

And will long for  this age in 20 years!! (all in jest!)  Check your mail, AARP card probably waiting---steve.

Car looked like sh&*t in the old pics...body lines off, under hood full of scale. not taken care off. Hope it goes for 60K+, makes mine worth that much more...

Very few of theses cars have not been "warmed over" decades ago.


Unfortunately for me no points for unmolested sheet metal and born with block, heads, rotating assembly, tires, ,exhaust  etc...---money is in leaking old 780's. and ER. alternators,  surface rust, LOL.   survivors

" During my time with this car I have accumulated some parts  to be sold after the car and will be offered to the new owner first to assist in the future restoration."    Huh? THAT, can mean anything.....

Could very well be, I do possess the 5 born with. All stamped the same.

"Most of us bought them when they were 3 or 4 years old and they were just used cars."    and by the late 70's--80's they were mostly "used" up. Which should come as no surprise that some of these glossed over mud buckets coming out of Muscle car dealerships may have been warmed over several times. Seems like more and more horror stories are making the various forums.

Funny you bring up a winged car, not going to say the price, but a buddy of mine wanted to buy a "field car" to fix up in the late 70's....his Dad said absolutely not, " junk Mopar gas guzzler" One of my high school cars was a 68 GTO vert. Clean car by today's standards, bought it for really next to nothing. Cheap enough were mowing lawns after school took it home. (made payments to the owner)

Relatively speaking, a clean Z tended to hold a good price ( based on what I have been offered over the years) Mine was sold in 76 (to my Father) to buy a TR7. Guy wanted to by it back as early as 79,the answer was always no. I got it from Dad in the 80's....very fair price...with stipulations.

The "money shot" is before you unload it off the trailer when you get it home....do post !---steve

Good for you, welcome Smiley


Price was between you two...

Nice to hear of another one finding a good home, and not rotting away.
58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: in case anyone is interested on: December 24, 2014, 11:54:51 AM
I like everything about that car, and the story behind it. Current bid is  about 2 years worth of kid's tuition, so I'm out. ( should be higher IMO)


This is one I'd like to keep an eye on the next few years...would look so good next to the Ash Gold 68...maybe for my wife, like the original intent.
