Just watched a Coffee Walk with Dennis Collins on YouTube. He said Norwood Z/28 were X77, and Van Nuys Z/28 were X33. Now we all know that's not true, but he said it will such confidence, that some...

I would never use a restamp, as that would call into question whether anything else is restamped. A CT, (Chevrolet Transmission- what you are calling Counter Exchange) only adds value when coupled...

The patina you get when you maintain originality, is highly attractive to me. Fully restored cars (even over restored ones) are highly attractive to me. Restored or restomods with applied patina, are...

One of One is way overplayed, in my opinion. The Marti Reports all break down the options to show how "rare" each car is but rare does not necessarily mean valuable. In fact, it does not even...

If I remember the story, the guy’s daughter drove it in high school with a 350 in it. It had a dent on the hood, where she, or one of her friends sat on it. It lost a fuel pump or something, and was...

I met a guy from Cleveland OH area about 25 years ago, who found a COPO block in a speed shop. He bought the engine, and then did a DMV search for the car. He found it in Mansfield area, and was able...

I love the story of the unconverted L78's. I remember the story of the one that was dealer traded to, I think, Kenny Ross. To everyone, it was just a leftover L78. I think I'd rather have one of...

I don't see why not. I bought a lot of maybe 20 sill plates in generally bad condition at a swap meet, because a few had near-pristine Fischer Body emblems. I ground off the back of the rivets, and...

The tail panel is easy, Yenko removed the Bowtie badge leaving two holes. They used the left hole for the right pin of the Yenko badge, and drilled for the left pin. For the 427 badge, they did just...

Right, I meant that only 69 Camaro, (and probably Nova) had all three, forward spark wire tower, that style of dimple, and the sending unit wire tab. 68's were different, as were 70's.

Not positive, but with that little dimple on the driver side, and the location of the spark wire tower, I think it's 69 Chevelle, only. I know that dimple with the forward tower is 69 Camaro, only....

Lynn, I totally agree with you. I didn't buy it as an investment, I bought it as a toy, to drive for fun, nothing else.

I went to great lengths to replicate the overspray, or more correctly, "throughspray" on the spare of my Yenko tribute, as the others were Torque Thrust O's. My painter thought I was a little nuts.

How much it will hurt value depends on what it is. Clone, probably not at all. Grocery getter, not much. Rare HiPo car, quite a bit. Oddly, on a high value car, it would probably hurt the value more...
