Surviving 69' Z/28's in the registry, or Data Base CRG dudes?
« on: January 14, 2010, 07:18:45 AM »
Could someone please send me the current VIN's for the surviving 1969 Z/28's. Or actually ALL first generation documented VIN's. I seen it on here a few days ago and I can't find it. It was a nice long list of cars currently on record. Want to check it with some cars I found and find out if they are in the registry. May want the non z/28 cars also if there is such a list. Thanx.........Danny

That list is not for surviving Z's. It's for documentation that survives but the car is MIA. :)

I do not believe that a "documented" list exists. I am sure CRG would not publish anything we have sent in either. The info we send in should be confidential and is only as good as the sender it comes from.

Crap, well I know I seen a nice long list of VIN's that someone wanted at, to look something up. He wanted to see where HIS car fell in the build sequence. I don't want personal info, just the VIN's of the cars that are in the database, that have survived. I am positive I seen it HERE. VIN"s are nothing, I can go to the biggest car show in the country and walk around and collect 500 off the dash plate's before lunch....right?
Could someone tell me what it is I seen? And possibly give an explaination......Thanx......Danny

Just a thought!
What if you posted your friends VIN and cowl tag info., maybe the guys here will let you know where that car lies in the build sequence?  ;)

Hey Indy69, I here what your saying, however I have more then one car I want to check. And I am wanting to check if they are even listed in this Database, not just where they fall in the build sequence. I DON'T want them added as of yet. Therefore I can't list the VIN's. Hopefully somebody can make this happen. I was going to print it all out the day I seen it, but figured it was easy to access....Thanx.......Danny

Danny I hear what you are saying as well, however I believe the information is for the CRG and their use only and not for public record. Also, how long do you think this site would last if they gave out privileged information? I would think not long at all.

If you have found a stash of cars that are for sale or whatever, then I suggest you find out if the owner/s of the cars have them listed here in the database or ask them to provide documentation to prove their worth or get all of the VIN's and cowl tag info. and present it here for discussion.

In these days of fake tags and rebirthing of ID's, new body shells etc.  it would be fairly easy to "make" collectable cars rise from the dead. JMO!

Well I started calling all my buddies that have classic Camaro's. Z/28's, R/S, Chevelle's, GTO's, JL8 one block from my house etc. etc. I have 6 so far. 6 VIN's without ANY personal info. Imagine that. Next Camaro Club meeting I'll get 25 more. Then down the road to Pomona for another 100 in one afternoon. I'm gonna wear my wireless mic and recorder. And just walk along and describe the car and talk to myself until I have hundreds. So there.....Ok, now I'm not upset anymore.. ha ha......Danny

Of the 20,302 1969 Z/28's built there are more than 50,000 in the world today. With all the fakes, you better know what you're looking for.

The only VIN listings I have seen are in the Orphans Section.

Danny,
I don't know where you saw that. Maybe this: http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#HowMany.  I know that Steve M had a list of 69 LOS cars on his site in the past - not sure that's still up.

The data for the database was submitted with the assertion that it would not be shared or published. Personal data or not, none of it is published. Sorry. Feel free to ask questions though.

I need to apologize.....I did see all the VIN's in the orphan's section. That has alot of VIN's. Yes they are for another reason, but that is it. SORRY everyone for being a Richard Head....You'll get it.....think about it.......
I have decided to buy one of the cars I found. Would love to get one of the others, but can't plug them both in, a little to much dough. The other car is a 68' Z/28 Corvette Bronze with original paint and ALL there......Has Protect-O-Plate. Bought originally by a guy I met for 11K!! Drives around fine but needs resto. Going to try to get it next year if I can. And one of the other cars is a 67' Firebird 400HO. All matching in a barn a mile from my house. I went to H.S. with the old owner. I have not seen the car since 1979! It is white and a 4-speed car. Not sure if rear is Posi. And get this...It's a convertible! It's all there but need's a quarter and a resto. Don't know much about Firebirds. Anyway, I am selling all my Collectibles Coca Cola, Vintage Tin, Lionel, Antique's, Grand Piano, Music Eq. and my 2006 Mustang G.T. Bummer, only has 14K miles on it. But hey, it all comes around, they made more then one..........Danny

Well done to you Danny!!!!  :D :D

Gee I wish I was a mile from your house I would be around to get that Firebird....
The Firebirds are nice cars, I have had many over the years and that is a great find also.
Let us all know how you go and please ask your questions, make that car of yours right if it isn't already.

Cheers

Indy, I know, that firebird is cool. The guy went crazy....FOR REAL And I remember was committed to a crazy house. Don't know what ever happened to him. And another friend of mine got the firebird. He has 34 cars. He is a wrecker, so he tows these old cars off properties, then titles them in his name. Legally, with waiting periods and such. The family bus. has been going since the 40's. Lot's of treasures. Lot's of family history, so the whole valley calls him for towing. The car I got coming I have wanted since the summer of 1971. Test drove one just like it with my Dad when I turned 16, and he said no, TOO FAST!! So now about 38 years later...BINGO!! I will share when it's in my garage in my name.....maybe. It's going to take every penny I have, and every collectible I own. But again, it all comes around. Then maybe recover and go for the 68 Z/28. Who knows. Then the next year the firebird....ha ha  I could probably get the firebird now, but need the dough for the big deal first. Ok, bed time for bonzo....D
