I don't know much about Canadian documents, but one must remember that documents can be (and are) faked

If someone didn`t like or didn`t trust my `Canadian documents` in hand as real - assuming I was selling it, all I would have them do to put their mind at ease would be to give them George Zapora`s number or someone else at GM Vintage services. Then they could get it validated over the phone (if they still do that - as he confirmed my car for me as a Z28 model from the VIN, prior to my buying the car some 26 years ago) or for a prospective and serious buyer, the relatively small fee of $100 gets them the documentation package so they themselves can read it and check the car and the as delivered options against what they are looking at..
Unless they don`t trust GM itself, I can`t think of a better way to put a prospective buyer at ease with such a purchase...  But that's just my own personal opinion..  Randy

I agree Randy....the Can Doc's are/ were a great paper trail to have on the Authenticity of a Car....not sure how that plays out today as the last time I checked the Can GM Vintage Services......I noticed that George has gone on his own now...George is a great guy and a straight shooter, I had a 69 that we always thought was a US sold Car, when I called George he said send in the VIN and if its not a Can Car...no charge, I was surprised to find out that it was a Can sold car so he sent in the paper work with a nice package, all for 50 bucks back then....not sure how it works now as it looks like he went on his own, I could be wrong....I believe George frequents this site, perhaps he can verify....I agree with everyone else as well, that nowadays, we are better informed on the First Gens today than I when I first got into the Hobby.....I love Original Cars but today for some reason, the plain Jane Coupes appeal to just as much or more because every 69 Camaro at the Cruise nights is an SS or a Z/28....out of 10 in the Lot...1 may be a real one....this Forum has really opened my Eyes ever since I joined...and I still learn new things today about these Cars

something does not add up with this. a 8/21/68 stamp with a 01a or 01b vin? Maybe I'm wrong....

Welcome Ron. Just curious what that drivetrain is in? 35 Years ago, one of my close car buddies bought a DZ engine w/ matching trans. and put it in a 68RS Camaro. He lived in N.Ky.

Ron post the information in the 1969 - Orphans section. Would be good to include pics of the stamped information on the block and transmission.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Interview with Robert Barg, Trans-Am racer

Yes, Mid-Ohio 1969. I started and drove to the first fuel stop at about the 1 hr. mark, and then co-driver Dick Hoffman took
over, but the rear axle broke in his first lap.

Don't know about a full-length video, but Jon might.

The various debates could rage on for ever. For example, I would prefer a NOM Z/28, L78, SS350 etc with 100% original sheet metal and all GM parts than a verified, documented, certified born-with drivetrain car that has been restored with a lot of reproduction parts on it. But that's just my choice, value of the car in each scenario is irrelevant.
Many armchair experts have been proven wrong or fooled over the decades, faking is nothing new but has improved a lot in recent years. I have no doubt some top-shelf 'verified' cars have a skeleton or two in the closet.
