Brian, just so you and the others know.  I have tried to keep my prices reasonable and affordable to everyone.  Rates have been at $500 a day plus expenses for the past 12 years or so.  Through use of my data analysis, I can verify if the drive train is original to the car, check for a rebodied car, verify any and all components as real or reproduction or replacement.  You'll receive a three to four page report from me once I'm done with my inspection work.  I treat every car just like I'm judging any restored or survivor Camaro at the Camaro Nationals.  I captain the team at this event and judge multiple cars in the "Legends" Restored Class and "Legends" Survivor Class every year.  When spending over $20k and up for any classic car, it's good insurance to know what you have is the real deal.  My reports also act as a certified appraisal on the vehicle too.  I am state licensed and nationally licensed through the International Antique Automobile Appraisers Association too.

A few years back, I purchased a 1958 Fender Stratocaster guitar just like the one that the legendary Buddy Holly played before he was killed.  I know music as I've been around it my whole life but before I pulled the trigger on a very expensive original museum quality '58 Stratocaster, I reached out to an expert in that field so I had piece of mind about the purchase.  Vintage instruments are as costly as vintage automobiles. 

I know of too many people in the hobby who get burning every month.  It is not getting better, it's getting worse.  Barrett Jackson brought me on board last year to help weed out any fakes that are brought to the auction.  They too are tired of all the misrepresented cars.

As on late, there is a fake L89 that I inspected in 2009 that has been making the rounds at auctions.  The car still gets listed as a real L89.  Go figure. 

Very sad, but a reality of the hobby. 

Good luck,

Jerry

Unfortunately it was restored (should not have been) and sold out of Jefferson Georgia a few years back about a year after the Texas sale.
I had it tracked that far as I have been after this car... UGHHGHHHHH!!!!
Jon Mello and I have discussed this car before...

Those are BEFORE!

I have the ad and photos after the resto as well, however it looks like every other back yard camaro reto...

Honestly it made me sick to find the car had been restored...

Jon and I discussed it when we talked about the A sedan race cars. I had wondered where it went to and when it might appear.

Now I understand, that car looks sweet in the drive way with the early torq thrusts. Still surprises me to see so many unrestored cars without the console gauges factory, it seems like more of the track oriented cars did not have them. Maybe they ran a set of mechanical stewart warner gauges instead.

   My 67 L35 w/TH400 survivor has the console but never any factory gauges. The owner put on a set of SW gauges which at that time used a mechanical oil and water temperature gauge. I left them on being they are so old now.

I am surprised that sequoia green car didn't have headers, since it was said that it was raced for years.

Race/Track cars used *real* gauges; mostly the 'gauges' installed by the factory back then were laughed at, especially the tachs, and electrical gauges/idiot lights.   I don't think I've ever seen a real race car that used the factory gauges.

The aftermarket gauges were less expensive, more accurate, and easier to read... TRIFECTA!

You'd be surprised how many restored cars didn't come with gauges but have them now....   Wink

I had also stated this in my '67-68 Camaro fact book.  Most educated high performance gear heads knew not to order the factory gauges.  All of the hot rod magazines of the day also bashed the factory gauges.  SW and Sun what were used back in the day.
