Rock Hill is where Mike's Custom Cars is located .... wouldn't be surprised if has had his hands on that one.

Picture from the original owner of my X33 . I guess the original Hugger Orange didn't attract enough attention.

I'm making the trip from California with Charley . Bringing my red COPO Camaro... love Chicago

The debate rages on but one thing for sure is no one ever says anything bad about Dynamat. Ebay has some good deals but always pay attention to the shipping charges

Then there is the yellow .... :)

Seriously, I ask because one of the National judges told me recently that all one color and mostly orange.  Of course he could be wrong. Plus the fact every Camaro shop that sells first gen parts has been selling these stamps for years so who know how many of these firewalls have been stamped.

I would be interested in what Steve and the guys in the Vintage Certification Program have seen

Restoration / Re: 1969 SS350 muncie 4 speed tunnel hole template

Here are a few photos that may also help. Not sure how accurate you want to be but gives an idea of how the torch cut tunnel looked. Also note the placement of the ground near the back of the opening. These are from my old Van Nuys Z that was 100% original.

These are from my other 69Z . Car had been raced and the tunnel hacked but the dimensions from the center of the groove back should be spot on

I just wanted to bring this thread up because I have always been told that the colors on the PBT stamps should not be mixed. I see a few photos of cars in this thread that have both green and orange stamps combined.

Can anyone say with certainty that the stamps were either not mixed or on occasion were mixed? And if both colors were used on one car is that common or minimal and what may have been the cause for both colors to be used?

Don't they say, " A thread ain't worth nothing without pictures"? ... :)   OK I posted there too

I agree 100%, but Kurt would prefer us not to post pictures of original stampings so we don't create a reference library for would be forgers.    :)


Good to know.. I would have never guessed since Kurt comments on stampings all the time on TC

How about a set of the reproduction Firestone race tires?
