Simple enough ,if one was interested in the car ,call CHP--I am sure Jerry keeps a data base to cover fraudulent claims.

I can see were this would be a headache.

Once again ,buyer beware. I really can never wrap my brain around making a high dollar purchase sight unseen , and this is why. If you have ever been involved in litigation concerning this hobby ( I have ,body work, car was hostage in the shop) it's a nightmare and usually the only winners are the attorneys. Very subjective on values. Food for thought.

So... Fees and expenses were paid to have 2 cars documented, and the owner did not catch a  " typo " ?

" Long may you run "......Neil Young ,sorta sums it up Smiley     Probably all guys attached to their old iron get a little choked up, if you've owned them for decades ,they become time stamps.

Can verify the 302, with the guy who rebuilt it ,by phone ,after moneys out of your account.....sounds ok to me.


I'm curious for CHP input on this car. Documents can so easily be forged. It may very well be legit ,but all scammers "troll" for fish to snag ,and usually do....hear reports every few days on the news.

And even if it isn't a scam ,cleverly written disclaimers and descriptions have replaced fast talking.

I agree with above--if your keeping stock appearing( heads date coded ??) See what they are flowing, if they need work . Than email a reputable camshaft company with the info and they can recommend a package. Don't overlook the strength in the rotating assembly. Food for thought ,but 496 assemblies seem to be pretty popular if you need to strengthen and go  the route of upgrading. Number one rule is keep everything a package. No weak links. Do your homework and research what you have. Many good websites identifying cast numbers. try: outintheshop.com

Gardener Mass., done, ready to drop or finish as is.....just look at the quality of work: Surprised this one also doesn't have Z/28 attached to the title, makes it a rare one ! Cheesy

well, read the warranty/disclaimer---philly lawyer.

Sooo... glad I kept the color. You guys are really reinforcing it with finished cars.
55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hmmm, "complete bumber to bumber" restored 69 Z on: March 29, 2014, 08:02:05 AM
May just be wishful thinking on the bidding. I don't follow the pricing on the 69's, but pretty sure the value on this one is  a bit north.

Pretty sure it was always bring your checkbook ( or wallet for the hottie , lol ) Anything of beauty tends to be a little high maintenance Cheesy



I do know the older we all get ,the better-faster-stronger we all were !  correct? Wink

Off topic but the original owner told me he removed the pump and plugged the exhaust manifolds (still in them) the day he picked the car up....in the lot. He also had the dealer install a few items (on my shelves) So who is to say what took place before delivery except the one who picked it up.

Goes as far as another old post of mine. Guy's dad worked in a dealership so he had a special order SS Chevelle delivered without the 396 but ordered a 427 and installed it at the dealership. I was a little kid when I first heard the story, and witnessed a few heated debates over it. He still owns it, had no reason lie. If anything, at the time he wanted the car a sleeper.

But, I understand a very definite line between how it rolled out of the factory, and rolled out of the dealership.

Matter of opinion I suppose. Used to like the tanks blacked out ,now I like the detail. In the debate ,nothing says the dealer didn't do it to spice it up a bit ,just a thought.

I'm amazed with the displacement test---never would have guessed. Holds true no replacement for displacement, what an advantage that would have been. Good reading.

Chick, some may call it gloating ,I call it sharing. Love to see some pics on the other bowties in you collection. Pretty sure everybody feels the same. I enjoy looking at others cars here ,in any stage. Really nice seeing his Ash Gold 68 on display.
