Re: August 2018 ROTM Vote for the Worst

So nobody has a car they want to enter this month?

Where are all the guys that wanted me to keep this going?

Project Cars, Drivers, POS in need of work. Enter you car and tell your story.

Surely a $100 or $50 Gift Cert would come in handy.

Re: August 2018 ROTM Vote for the Worst

I'd enter a few of my restoration at beginning stages as they were pretty awful, but I am assuming pics have to be current condition?

Re: August 2018 ROTM Vote for the Worst

Here is my 1967 Camaro. I purchased the car just about a year ago and have been restoring it since. I always dreamed of having a 1st gen Camaro growing up and I have been saving for this car a long time. I found this car on craigslist and have been restoring it ever since. I don't have the amazing skills some of you guys do here but I'm learning every day on this car and trying to do it right!
Currently the car has an L34 396 and is running good. It still requires some interior work, reupolstery and such as well as a new coat of paint due to the poor job of the previous owner but this car is coming along!

Re: August 2018 ROTM Vote for the Worst

Here is the Camaro I have owned the longest. I bought it in 1992 because it was a 4spd not because it was a vert. I actually didn't care for open cars back then
327 2bl
Saginaw 4spd (on order form M20 box is checked)
Original top as is all the interior including carpet
I added 67/68 disc brakes along with 15 inch wheels in 07 to enjoy it more. Got off the anal wagon about keeping it original even though it still is very much so.
It was ordered from Spain by the O.O. who also painted it in 1969. He said from shopping cart 'damage' and then he added that cheesy side trim which I peeled off.
I also broke the back window like a jackass putting the top down on that COLD March night I bought it

Re: August 2018 ROTM Vote for the Worst

Not sure if I have the worst or the best. My wife spotted my Z on US 13 in Smyrna, Delaware in 1999, 15 minutes from our house. I went and checked it out, looked on this site, and realized this was a true X33D80 with all the gauges and dash tach. Paid $7500.00 a few days later and have been trying to correct it's misgivings ever since. 83,000 original miles. Last paint job, and quarter skins were installed in 1987 according to one of the last owners. Always been garaged from what I learned. Don't know which owner installed the dash wood grain but it's long gone now. I believe this is a flat hood and manual steering Z as well.

That means the photos are not available to the public, and or the photos are not in a special folder created that is public. So at this point only the owner can see them when their cookie is logged into their Google account.

This is why Google Photos is not a very good photo sharing service. It is very difficult to create and maintain a truly public folder that is available to anyone not logged into any type of google account.

Amazon Prime members also get free photo space that is a bit easier to share.

Re: August 2018 ROTM Vote for the Worst

Worst? Don't know if I'm following the intent but I'll give it a shot!

I bought my pile 5 years ago...it was 2 miles from my home on eBay. I contacted the seller because I wanted to see it and he had 3 he already had built. This one he was just trying to get rid of. He asked if I ever restored one before, and I said no not to that extreme. I had just completed an 82 Firebird but it needed minimal bodywork. Told him I couldn't afford what the bid on eBay was anyway, I've just always wanted to have one since I was a 12 year old kid. Well, he found out that the high bidder was a builder in town.....apparently didn't like him so called me and told me that 12 year year old kid should get his car. We shook hands and I picked it up with a flatbed. I immediately was in over my head.....but the saving grace was TC. Otherwise I would have never gotten this far.

I'm sure many of you have seen my marathon build. Here is the day I got it.



Current





And an engine pick..LS 6.0 build

Re: August 2018 ROTM Vote for the Worst

Took title to this 67 in early 69. I had it on the road more or less till I got married in 76. Its occupied the space its in now since 84. Its a restomod in process. I intend to do all except paint and body. I work on it when I can. I hope to get the other frame tie cut in this afternoon, we will see. So far its got a Quadralink, Strange S60 floater, back Wilwoods, Tanks tank & pump setup, AAW classic upgrade harness, a lot of panels changed, retro radio, steering column rebuilt, odds and ends, dunno if it will be done before I retire or not.
