it was fun as I was there and the car attracted people all day long. the seller also had a cross ram rear brake Z/28 the did not meet reserve. he has sold 30 plus Z/28s. the owner was impressed how many people came up and told him they knew me and I had worked on their cars.

In the fine print of Mecums bidding info, it says they are allowed to bid up to the reserve. It might speed things up, but I dont like it that people that dont know think someone is bidding and its real money.

Restoration / Good time to inspect / repair ??? when the entire drive train is out
« Last post by 67rs327 on August 02, 2015, 02:50:51 AM »
I have the entire drive train out of my '67 L30/M20 and thought I'd get a few comments on what I should look to repair/replace while I have lots of room to work. Car is getting a new clutch (all associated parts like flywheel, bell housing, linkage, Saginaw, Hurst,  etc. rehabbed) I also installed new manifold flange studs. What else? Oil pan gasket? - Do I need go thru jacking the engine up to remove the pan?  Rear main is not leaking at all. Thoughts? Thanks.

The three small holes are for the shifter mounting bracket......therefore the crossmember would mount with them on the driver side.

Restoration / 1967 Tranmission cross member orientation
« Last post by 67rs327 on August 02, 2015, 02:26:14 AM »
So in my haste to remove the transmission cross member from my '67 (4 speed) - I failed to notice which side is forward (or aft?)
There's a single hole in the center section near the 2 main mounting holes - and also 2 smaller ones on one  side and a single directly across from those on the other side. Curious what these are for and what direction should the cross member be in for reinstallation? Thanks.

OK guys let me clue you in on something here:

For example on this car you may see all these "phone bids" getting it bid up to just under the reserve.... and then nothing?!
Why do you ask?
All the big auction houses Mecum, R & M, Russo and Steel they all participate in this type of shill bidding.
They are hoping the (artificial) interest in bidding it up will catch on or the excitement will build up enough for just one person in the room to raise there hand/paddle. This magically gets it over the reserve, or all of sudden with that bid you may hear the reserve has been lifted.

Its not magic, its business, and legal from what I understand.

This is the explanation on why this car jumped 100k, but then didn't meet reserve or sell.

Always keep one skeptical eye open... ;)
