General Discussion / Re: A First Generation Camaro LEGACY ?
« on: January 16, 2018, 11:50:14 PM »
What Jerry or Steve do with the information they gather is their business - and no other person really needs to know details of how itís handled.

Information gathered by CRG is for research purposes and as Kurt said earlier, itís confidential in most cases. Or at least at a minimum the personal details are confidential. 

What you are wanting to do would be nice, but the probability of it happening is extremely low. About as high of a chance as there being world peace.

Great idea Gary. People are always encouraged to forward data to the CRG core or CRG Associate members.

Austin, What you are asking for is truly ďPie in the SkyĒ. Unless you have unlimited time and money, it will never happen. Experts have different levels of knowledge. Who would constantly update it? The problems are MANY as Kurt mentioned.

Car looks really good. Nice to see one without a rear spoiler.

You could do what someone did on one of my cars. Cut  hole in the inner fender, make sheetmetal  patch, spray undercoating, paint to match. We did not even notice until we pulled the front metal during resto.

And that procedure was used on quite a few cars.

My knowledge on the subject is limited, but I have never seen that finned balancer used on a 67 Z.

Doesnít look familiar to me. Can you post it with something else for size reference? Like a quarter coin or a ruler?

Yes axle does appear to be original. 99 percent sure the vent hose isnít.

I'm 100 percent sure!

Yep, is itís a 350, it large journal 2.45 inch mains.  (Well medium journal if you consider the 400 small block in the mix which had 2.65 mains).

Yes axle does appear to be original. 99 percent sure the vent hose isnít. Vent may have been damaged or maybe car was driven into water occasionally.

If was a 396 in a Camaro, it had chrome valve covers originally.

bcmiller......could you elaborate a little on what you are speaking of 5/67-11/67?  I'm assuming it has to do with the trans am series but not sure

Thatís part of it. Would rather not say much more at this point.

09C is earliest I know of. Which is kinda late, IMO.

Not late - when talking about the model year.  :)   

Anyway, my OPINION is that there were Z28s built from the start of the year, no lag.  Z28s were being cranked out at the end of the 67 model year, so no reason for a delay as far as I know for 68.  Maybe some of these very early cars were slated for race duty, like the 67s were?  Maybe it took a while for the general public to catch onto these cars, like the L78s in 68?  (Remember, L78 and Z28 production numbers were quite low for the 67 model year, and it's hard to go to a dealer and want to order something you don't know anything about).

Who knows.  We would always like to have more data points. 

My favorite period is from May of 67 through November of 67, and there were some interesting things going on then.
