L89 at Local Car Show
« on: June 13, 2015, 11:31:52 PM »
A couple friends and I went to a local church car show today and there was a L89 Camaro there, and its a local car! Picture of the window sticker not very good due to behind glass and sun but the build sheet is amazing. Was told it was up under the dash area. Bergy was there also and maybe he saw it as well. They were expecting 1000 cars at this church show. Amazing!

I've seen that car many times Chick.  Lots of concerns.  Great show though - actually 1,300 + cars there.  Cool Ammon R. Smith sold, barn find, original paint '65 Corvette.  Your L78 Nova was standing tall!

Thanks Bruce! Went looking for you for the 2nd time just after the free ice cream but you had apparently left. Could not believe the cars already there at 9am when it was to start. Was told the first car arrived at 6:05 that morning! Some serious car members. :)

All the "paperwork" is fake-that's the form for an A body build sheet. Camaros used two forms: a Body Broadcast Copy and a Chassis Broadcast Copy.

The window sticker has so many errors I don't know where to start. L89 was not an engine option it was a cylinder head option that required the L78 engine; both are listed on real paperwork. The ducted hood wasn't in production when this car was built; wrong ECL. 5Z27AB is the ECL for an SS350.

Looks like the tag has been off the car.

Makes me wonder what else is fake.
Learning more and more about less and less...

Sure looks like they over smashed the right rivet during re-install. Sure never seen a factory one all flat like that. I would be curious to see the BACK of those rivets to see the rosette. I am running on some of the the least amount of knowledge on this site, but I say the cowl tag has been installed by the factory... NOT!! Just another car with a nice paint job worth 40K less than the owner thinks... Danny

I live near Hershey, was on rt.283 pretty early this AM and saw lots of cars headed that way. I saw this car about 10 years ago at a local show. He tried real hard to convince me it was real. I didn't bite because I didn't really know.

Thanks William! Since it was local and heard the story of the car along with the paperwork I thought it was possibly real but some things concerned me. I know nothing about the build sheets so some good info given. The one thing that struck me was the date for the rear being a Sept built for a Dec car and here I thought if this was real paperwork I could learn from it.

You'd think someone would have told him about that flashy orange FORD  'caution fan' sticker long ago too.  Right there Id question everything.

That sticker is the best, my friend Jack (crg member) loves pointing out that sticker on cars. Like you once he sees that sticker, all bets are off....

I asked him about it Jim and he said he knew now its a Ford thing as he'd been told about it many times and said he was going to take it off. Since it's a somewhat local car guess we will see in the future.

I would have a different guy ask about that sticker every hour.....j/k

It is getting to point where I see more finished cars with that sticker than without it. As time goes on it will be a correct item for any resto....
