Sick of seeing this Z on ebay
« on: December 07, 2012, 01:40:15 PM »
I am so sick of seeing this Z. This was my car. I had Jerry do the inspection. At that time there was no VIN stamped on the block. I have told this dealer that and they ignore me. Jerry stated in his report "Can I say that this is definitely the original engine to this vehicle? I can neither confirm nor deny it's authenticity."

My point being is this Z had no VIN on the block anywhere. Now it has. Also Jerry pointed out that most with this date had VIN on pad which it doesn't.

Jerry stated that the assembly date spacing did not look right but the VIN looked good so he thought the trans was original.

Looks like they had Jerry recertify the car. I'd like to compare the certifications to see the difference between them.

They posted the entire report so compare yours to theirs I am sure Jerry was well aware of your inspection, looks like a nice car did you have it painted? thanks Darrell

Hey Danny,
You can read the report on there web site. I looked it over and it seems like Jerry believes it was the original engine.

I'll give my opinion - block is OK. I had it noted the VIN was by the oil filter many years ago.
Trans is not original. It didn't have the original trans years ago, but did the lizard tail thing and regrew one.

Why then was the VIN not near the oil filter when Jerry looked at it when I owned it? That was in 2008. Plus Jerry's comment "Can I say that this is definitely the original engine to this vehicle? I can neither confirm nor deny it's authenticity." Plus why did Jerry think the trans was original in 2008?

Car was painted when I bought it. Looks like they did a cosmetic restoration since I had it. I can't seem to enlarge photos so I can read their report and compare it to mine.

Not sure what is going on. How can Jerry change his tune on this car. No VIN on engine in 08. Now there is one. All at once this car is an original engine car when before it may or may not be. Thankfully I got all the money when I sold the car even though I had to sell it as a non numbers car because of the report in 08.

Danny,

Were you able to pull up the report and compare it with yours? Were there many discrepancy's beside the engine. Did Jerry state there was no vin stamping on the block in your report?

Their report is hard to read in the pictures so couldn't compare to much. Jerry only stated in my report that there was no VIN stamped on the pad and that is where it should be for a car of that build date. He did not find one near filter at that time but did not mention that in the report. He said he could not confirm nor deny it was an original engine but it was possible. So at that time it was not documented as an original engine car.
