Nice sanding job on the tag. You can cover up a lot of ills by destroying appearances, sometimes.

More concerning to me - how many Norwood Camaros after January had the VIN stamped on the deck ? New guy on the line, maybe didn't realize that it was a hassle to remove the alternator to stamp the VIN ?

Revolting gray paint on the spindles. All in all, somebody spent a lot of time on this car - it's pretty - but a lot of details need to be corrected. At the bid level, somebody's interested -

I've got to inspect my Z when I get home - I've always wondered what "bumbers" were -

Not only should the vin not be stamped on the pad the V0421DZ date is weeks early for an 05D build should be more like the second week of May = restamp (or more accurately added stamp). Be interesting to see what the area around the oil filter looks like

This site has been a REAL education. I am a RURAL "Hillbilly", if you will, and have no interest in Suburbia or the Urban culture. Having said that, apparently there is a definition for "bumber" in the "Urban Dictionary"! (told you this site is a real education) Read it for yourself and I can see where this term fits in with 1st Gen Camaro lovers! Seems one goes with the other, at least to me! http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=bumber  Bumber=Lover of Boobs-go figure,lol. Learn something new everyday.
Now, about the car...Not only this car, but so many others like it have me puzzled. None of us would think of doing all the "incorrect detail" observations so prevalent on this car, yet , many seem to go the whole resto route and want to boast about how correct and original and authentic their car is without even coming close to doing the homework. Don't they know that information IS available? I don't get it! Why do all that work and disregard the details and correctness? Either truly "RESTORE" the car or make it into something you want and disclose it is your idea, but not authentically restored. I go to local shows and there are even more egregious examples. It is like the car has an identity crisis. The car's owner has a mix of some details that indicate an "eye" toward correct factory known details mixed in with "pro-street" or "over chromed" engine compartment. I can understand each person has their own interpretation and idea of what they want to build, but I still don't understand how someone decides to restore to original only to have an obvious car picked apart by others who know their stuff? Why is it so cool to have a correct GM stamped radiator hose and a polished blower on the same build? Seems like a contradiction to me? Below=example of BUMBER

Wheels are incorrectly painted, and wonder why they put the washer bottle in the RS location?

I try hard not to pick people's work apart, but, if it's built for profit....all bets are off. I'd like to see shots when the car was completely stripped to bare metal. A lot of chassis prep was ignored underneath and just sprayed over black. Receipts:engine, trans ,rearend. Car should have a file, both digital and paper. Car looks pretty but when obvious areas where attention to detail should be pursued ,and are ignored, it makes you start to wonder what's under the Lemans Blue and Chevy Orange. That being said, and if a truly interested buyer was looking at the car, and if the above mentioned could be verified, many good points on the car. For an honest price ,not difficult areas to correct . If you got the cash in the first place. LOL

WOW! That's a huge b*tch (think Duce Bigalow)...too funny Bentley. I see "*L*" as 2 eyes and a nose, is that the correct definition?

One the reverse lock out rod, it looks like the header tube was hammered quite well for clearance. I have a set of headers that I can use the rod with no clearance. They were on the car when I bought it so I don't have a clue what brand they are. The only problem I have with them is the #6 spark plug has no clearance for the boot and it just gets fried.
