That seems like the top of the mark I guess. A little scared as the title is NOT in his name. Anybody know how the DMV transfer fees work if you bring a car in to your own state. I guess ya could just use the last guys title, but what about fee's? We have "non-op" here, but it's gotta be clear FIRST. And what if this car has hundreds or thousands in back fee's due in other states? Do they go away during transfer to another state? CA sucks as a State period, and has SO many rules and regulations to follow. I don't know, pretty scary.... Danny

Are you aware of a 'restored' '68 Z28 that you would choose over that unrestored car?? 
That's a trick question, right?

I was thinking the same thing.  Gary must not have seen Chicks build thread over on Team Camaro.  Hands down the nicest 68 Z restoration I have seen to date.

No, I haven't seen his build thread...  I've only been 'back on' my Camaro for 3-4 yrs, and I don't often get to TC, except to check out the classified, or to post a 'how to' question.   Please note:  I'm not 'casting aspersions' at anyone's restored Camaro, especially not Chick's, whom I've learned to be a very knowledgable Camaro enthusiast during my time here at CRG.   I was only saying that *I personally* prefer to buy original unrestored cars, the nicer and more complete the better, than a 'restored' car (esp one that I didn't KNOW as a Z28 before the restoration).  It's difficult-impossible to ascertain 'after the fact', whether the perfectly restored part on the restored car was in fact ORIGINAL to that car, or not!  Coupled with the fact that this Z28 in question is 'complete' wtih smog/etc (obviously original to the car) makes it VERY UNUSUAL... and I like it very much!  :)


I agree with Gary, without seeing the resto I know Chick does quality work. BUT for me, there is something about an original driver, that is in good condition.

This particular 68Z I think if it was mine I would just thoroughly detail it the way it is. I have a couple of knowledgeable paint guys in town, and I would bring the car to them to get their opinion on how to buff and polish the existing paint. You would be surprised how they can use todays products to bring the luster back to old paint. After trying to protect and bring back all the original finishes, I would just drive it baby!

P.S. Danny in recent years California has changed its stance, and the seller is responsible for back fees, not the buyer .

Great the car's all there ! I understand the mystic of an unrestored "survivor " After the initial wow factor ,still have a car where all the original sheet metal is slowly disintegrating. 20 years it'll look like baby swiss. Opinions vary ,and I truly respect everyone's, but I'll probably always be in the camp of restoring, or whatever the popular term is now. But yea ,even I'd drive it as is for a summer or two ! Certain "cool" factor.

I wouldn't mind bringing this 68Z home either, but I don't think there is much existing paint to save.

Jano, there's a preservation component of having an original unrestored car..  One has to PRESERVE what is there, and prevent any further deterioration.  I agree with you on the *no paint rusty* spots of taht car..  if there's no paint left, and rusty metal..  you can to do something to that part..  but you don't have to paint the entire car.   you can take those little spots down to metal, condition and prime them, and then touch up or paint just those sports, or an entire panel..  your choice.   It's still an unrestored (survivor) car, and if it's protected the way you will protect your restored car, it will last jsut as long, and *might* last longer..  :)

Those rusted places will need filled and leveled. I can't think spotting as much has it needs would look right. At least it appears all the parts are with it
