I had a new neighbor stop one day when I had the Z out. He said he worked for the Ohio Highway Patrol and investigated stolen cars and if I saw anything on craigslist in ohio where someone was selling tampered with cars to let him know. He had some great stories. The one I remember was about a mustang that was in Virginia or somewhere in that area that had been a shell hanging in a restaurant. The buyer went to register it and the found out the title was for a car that wasnt even a ford. So OHP got involved. It had changed hands twice and the original guy never had a title, the 2nd guy added it. So the ohio guy, he had lied on his purchase price.  The nieghbor said they asked him on 2 occasions what he paid for it and it kept going up!!  So he implicated himself and now was without a car!!  He didnt know what they did to him. I dont think they would have thought anything about the price but if I remember right, they said why would you pay 7500 for a shell of a car thinking that was too high and they guy said I paid like 12000!!

A few years back I had a 67 Corvette 327/300HP HE long block obtained in the early 80's. I was about ready to junk it 3 years ago for scrap metal except for the oil pan & some other items but a NCRS judge friend insisted on putting it on the NCRS orphans list so I gave him the information even though I am a NCRS member. Reason I did personally was I had been told years prior that 67 had been turned into a big block car and assumed incorrectly it was a waste of time. Well he puts the info on the NCRS website and bingo, about 6 months later I got a call from my friend that a person in Canada called him and said it was out of his car. His car was born with the long block I had but he confirmed his car now had been changed into a L71 big block. LOL It apparently had changed hands many times over the years and he said he knew when purchased it was not a real L71 car. Well he purchased it and it now resides in Canada with the Corvette it was born with. His plan was to assemble/restore and place it on an engine stand with the car. The big block was going to stay where it was.
The reason I had obtained the aforementioned HE long block was to possibly put in our 67 Corvette since it was originally a low horse 327, but it had a DZ block in it when we purchased in the early 80's. Since it was an early DZ block the vin was right there on the pad and I was able to find the owner In 2008. He purchased the car in 1981 with a 350 in it. That engine was also reunited with its original mate so I'm two for two and both were tied in one way or another with our 67 Corvette which we still have!
  I have a 66 corvette HE coded 327 complete with it's original M-21 trans behind it.  My father bought the complete setup with original shifter and all back in about 1971 or so while living in Cincinnati at the time.  It's a low mile example, never rebuilt and still runs fantastic.  Only piece changed is the carb.   Searching for the car never crossed my mind.    I have pics of that engine when I cleaned it up a few years ago and it had grease markings all over the block, including a BIG "HE" written on the side of it.  Kind of a neat piece we've kept around all these years.

That's very cool Bill.

  Out here on Rt66 there are still a ton of abandoned gas stations and such, some with old pumps and signs, even old cars sitting around,   that make excellent photo opportunities.   I have always wanted to jump in the car and make some stops and take pictures.   I don't know why I haven't done that yet.  The Rt66 cruise out here they do every spring is a huge event (3,000+ cars) doing about 400+ miles of Rt66 to Cali and back stopping at every old town along the way.  It's always been too crowded for pics though.
Originality / Re: Silver paint on 68 SS hood ornaments/louvers

Is there no one on the Forum today that knows anything about this and is willing to chime in? Darrell, aren't those some of your pictures on the "68 Hood ornament" thread over in the Research topic section? I would have continued with that thread but it appeared old to me and I think the "originality" discussion forum is also a good place for this topic. I hope I can get some information before the weekend so I can make a decision whether or not to try and add the silver paint to my repro SS hood louvers which do not have this feature. Thanks in advance for any info or pictures.
