Thanks to NCRS, I received my shipping report today.
Order number - 912 (time to delivery was exactly 30 days as promised which is good considering it had to come to Australia).
Dealer code 107 in zone 19.
Dealer - Courtesy Chevrolet, Medford, Oregon.

I've searched but cannot find any information on this dealership except for one in Arizona and another in San Jose. Does anyone have any info on them or know where I could start looking?

Ue, with Roy now gone, I'm just curious. Who signed your report?

I signed it, mailed it before the changes happened.

DW, I was thinking the same thought. We do have "all the pieces"". Yet, After reading many of the comments on the Corvette site, I can see how dissention can occur.

What I am reffering to is that someone(group) decides on a standard to judge the cars by and everyone scrambles to make their car conform.

Yet, here on CRG, we kind of celebrate the diversity and realize and document the variances we find. It is a learning process. To say all the cars(insert your year and model) are "cookie cutter" exact would erase what all the years of site research have netted. An example: My 396 car has (had) only one screw holding the RH tailpipe hanger on and only 2 clips holding the muncie speedo cable in place. Although the AIM shows and I know both these details are not in conformance with what is known as correct, I am leaving the car "as found" even if it would cause "points" loss, which has no interest to me. On the other hand, with the flame paint job it had, I am glad there are documented examples of stripes, and other details I can reference, here, on the site.
To summarize: it is good to know how it should be when restoring and also good to keep it unique knowing things were not exact on the assembly line. NCRS, while probably the best organization promoting the Vette, has, or can have, inherent flaws in establishing conformity regarding judging standards.
From the cars I've looked at and asked about the norm seems to be two Muncie speedo clips used, not three as the AIM shows! I agree with your statements so no dispute, but hope your not implying the NCRS judging manuals creates cookie cutter cars. To many including me it's what is considered the norm, but that does not mean there are exceptions as there are exceptions to just about any manufacturing process. With any organization we can find something that is not correct or should be improved but a Camaro guideline similar to NCRS would/could assist many hobbyist. If anyone has a chance review a 68/69 Corvette judging manual as it's loaded with information and some of it carries over to our cars as well.

Roy, you indicated there was an error in reading the microfiche for my car, after you'd reported Zone 21, then found out it was actually zone 31.  You told me you would generate a corrected report.   Is there someone involved now, that I should alert to that situation in order to get the corrected report??

Thanks for any info you might provide..

rsinor. Thank you for your work. Best of luck in the future. I'm very grateful that I was fortunate to receive your report. It helps add another piece to the puzzle that is the history of my Camaro. Smiley

ZLP955. I hadn't seen your message until now. Wow, thanks for the leads. Number plate surround purchased the minute I saw it! Victoria has the USA style plates too and you've just made up my mind if I should get them or not.
You rock. I'll be following up on the dealer info you provided too.

Roy, words cannot convey how thankful I am for all your efforts and work on this project. You have taken your time to answer our questions here and I appreciated your help updating my report. I wish you nothing but the best wherever the next road takes you.

I have found newspaper archives invaluable! Hope this link works, it gives somewhat of a timeline for that dealership.

BTW- my entry is #1491. I'd venture a guess that the NCRS has paid for at least some of the labor that Roy did. Several times over, maybe -

Thanks Frost69. I hope I'm not hijacking this thread. If so let me know and I'll stop or start a new one.
From the link you gave me, I was able to find a bit more info on the salesman at the original dealer and found his daughter on FaceBook. I've sent her a message and hopefully she responds and can put me in touch with her father. Some old photos or stories about the dealership and that era would be fascinating.
