Jesse,
Sorry to hear it got stolen from you.
Could you confirm the axle code was QX0108G2E? It is the earliest JL8 axle I've seen and several months before the car.

Thanks!

Kurt - Yes that is the correct numbers off the axle tube. I was the one who crawled under the car and wrote them down 2 days ago. I am sure Jesse would confirm those numbers from his records. It should be announced today who won the bid for this car. I hope it goes to someone local here in the Pacific NW as I would love to see it around at our local Camaro shows!

Kurt, as DW stated the rear end was the correct one on the car when I owned it. The axle had all the correct original brackets and cables for four wheel disc brakes that are hard to find. To answer Stephen, I did receive an insurance settlement. When the car was recovered I could not inspect the car for 18 months because it was evidence. I was told the car was not started up and that there was damage to the interior and the drivers side door. Since I was unable to travel to Seattle to inspect the car when it was released due to my work schedule I did offer the ins co. a bid which they did not accept. I have since purchased a 70 RSZ28 that is original that I am enjoying. It's not as much of a head turner as my old 69 but it is faster!--which shocked me! DW please reply if you find out who wins the bid on the car. I also would like to see the car at a show on the West Coast.

Jesse - FYI, it did have paint damage to the driver's side door at the front edge. I did not see any specific interior damage. It was very dirty from being stored in a dusty lot but was obvious to me and JC that the restoration under that dirt was top notch with alot of attention to detail. Very nice job. I havent heard who won the bid but will try to find out and post the info.

Here's the thread I found Chill. Do you think you could still get in touch with Jesse. I would like to know as much about the car as I can. It's in pa now.

Sorry but I no longer have his #. The website admins might be able to contact him as he must have had a email listed with them.

They caught the guy about 8 months after he stole the Z. BEWARE of CASHIER'S CHECKS. The guy was from Seattle and is now in Prison.
Same thing happened to my neighbor on a 70 El Camino. It took his bank about 6 weeks to find out the check was forged. They caught the guy after he bought snowmobiles or quads across state lines. Not sure how much time he served, car has not been recovered to my knowledge.
