    Has anyone worked with Grundy Insurance lately?

    I have been using American collectors last 6-7 years, currently complete full coverage and agreed value replacement (as appraised) $33k = $269.00 annually. I have unfortunately only been driving about 1000 miles annually and I am allowed 2500 and can bump that a little if needed. Zero issues...

    29K mile 70 Z on Bring a Trailer

    that car is'nt that bad, aside from paint & the obvious. original front rotors still in place and paper tabs still in front coil springs 49 years later, car could'nt have been rode too hard. low mileage may be correct. the rattle canned control arms and brake parts do make me wonder "what...

    1972 LS3 402 CI Specification Questions

    is this a numbers matching bone stock engine or just a replacement engine ? if it is really the original engine to the car I would "if mine" pull it and set aside, then get a different engine in there. 72 was the last run of big block camaros and there were less than a thousand made.

    New-ish leaf springs lean?

    as a quick starting point I would be inclined to get the leaf spring front and rear hardware adequately loosened up, get the car down on the ground with weight on suspension and the torque to specs just to see..........maybe then start measuring leaf springs and comparing side to side.....

    B Jackson Vegas

    yeah I was there friday and saturday, the standout F-Body cars for me were the 2 - SD455 Trans Am one blue and one red, the red one was very appealing......... It was interesting to see these cars in person, some not as nice as you might think if watching this on TV.
