Is this vin in the CRG database?

No, it's not in there.
Can I get a good picture of the engine pad?
Thanks!

Hi Kurt -

   Thanks for checking the database. I've tried several times to attach photos, but have been unsuccessful. The problem appears to be that there is a maximum file size of 128 KB per photo. The smallest photo file size I have is 1.48 MB. Do you have any idea how I can get around this?

Hi Mike -

   Thanks for offering to do this. The email has already been sent to you with four photos attached. Two of the photos are from the front and two are from the back after I pulled the right cylinder head. Please let me know what you think. Thanks again.

Hi Mike -

   Thanks for getting the photos posted so quickly! How can I do this myself? Do I need some special software or what?

Hi Kurt -

   I just emailed you that file you requested. What do you think is the approximate build date of this vehicle based on the info in the CRG database? Also, what are my chances of finding this vehicle, assuming she's still around, based on your experience? Thanks in advance.

I used photoshop to resize them and imageshack.us to host them.  Photoshop isn't cheap, but there may be shareware versions available.  I certainly don't mind helping out, especially when it has anything to do with 68 Z's.

Take Care,

Paul,
The car would have been built at the end of Feb, beginning of March. So that engine date looks fine. :)

Problem with finding the car is
1 - it's not around anymore
2 - it's not registered. Someone looking for my Z would not find it via the DMV because I've never registered it. So the car could just be sitting in a garage somewhere in pieces.
I'd say the chance of finding it are low, but we have reunited several (blocks, POP's, etc) with the original cars over the years, so the chances are not zero. :)

Thanks for the pics!

Thanks for the information Kurt! I'm going to keep my fingers crossed and hope it's still out there! "Z/28 come home..."
