New for '68 Firebirds had a 4 way design available...

Drive it! Just install anti theft devices.

I'll be there - any idea how many cars show up?

I've seen the tape player mounted to the console lid on gauge cars.

Being good at power shifting beats being good at posting any day!!!

Not to mention something has to be burnt to make the electricity generating CO2 - unless we use nukes or wind.

Ironic how the effort to save the enviroment shut down developement of nuke plants that didn't produce CO2...

Agreed $20 to $30K IS a lot of money - however look at the price of new cars. $30 won't even buy a top of the line model Toyota mini van. I know as I own 1 along with my '67. In 10 years the van will be in the junk yard while the Camaro will probably doubled in price.

So perhaps the question should be can you afford NOT to buy one....

On page 20 of Miller's Camaro book and in the storyboard drawing that I posted
unusual bullet shaped side mirrors are shown. Does anyone know anything about these? Were they ever produced by GM or the aftermarket?



Yup, page 20. I shoulda pulled it off the shelf but for some reason I thought it was a color picture. My mind is not what it once was! :-\


Yeah that rings a bell - I THINK it was a retractible sunroof. I sort of remember seeing a picture of it somewhere.

I also seem to recall a color picture of a proto 1st gen with woodgrain sides, custom grill and maybe a surfboard rack??? Just can't seem to remember where....

At the time the parts store said that the yellow weatherstrip adhesive was superior to the black. I'm not sure if he was right but it sure looks worse if any gets out past the seal! And you're right it does work like contact cement so "glue" was the wrong term.

3M yellow glue WILL fail after a few years - both ends of my seal are loose. I think I installed it about 10 years ago. NOT correct for a '67 but mine had cooling problems and also blew an a/c hose so it was a fix that seemed to help.

My factory harness is an original and just hangs down from between the dash and heater box.
