What I like about the 4th edition is: 1) All photos are sharper, and some are even larger  2) New photos in the color photo gallery, I like the car owned by Gary Sommers, he drives it like he stole it! Wink  3) font is easier on the eyes to read 4) New information on the work order numbers scheduling codes 5) ZL-1 story has been added, there is still quite a few of them in the unknown status, you just never know where one could be hidding at.  Just a few of the changes I have noticed so far.

I have Jerrys first 3 books and am looking forward to buying the  4TH edition book. With these books you really do not require any others out there.

I still haven't received mine from Rick's, even though I paid for it (on backorder) a few weeks ago.  Maybe they take care of new money before old money.  No luck getting a response from customer service, either.  Maybe I will salute the greasy hands theory, order directly from Jerry, and end up with two.

I always recommend ordering thing like this directly from smaller guys like Jerry. Takes out the middleman, so more money goes directly to Jerry.

My wife order the book for me pre Christmas as a Christmas gift.  It was not available at the time so she called Jerry's shop and asked them about.  He told her to send in a check for the book and once he got them he would send them out on a first come first serve bases.  Got mine last week!  Love it ... and the car on the cover ... Looks Just like mine ... except I have the iron block and heads!

Great book - Thanks Jerry!

After reading my new edition for the 69 Z/28, I checked what I believed to be my original radiator (well at least I believed that the tanks were original, as I had it recored probably about 1983). It does not have the original tag that I always thought was needed to verify it as original, but after reading the book I discovered that both right and left tanks were embossed with codes as well. Sure enough both my tanks are embossed as the Jerry's book states, "CB" and "IH" I believe. When it need to be recored again, I just bought a repro instead, but kept the original. Another part I'm glad I didn't throw away!!

My Camaro has an AO sticker part number 3972284 with tire sizes F70-14-B, F60-15-B and F70-15-B the tire pressures listed are 26 cool and 32 hot
I will get a pic up soon
