5 or 6 lines down to the middle/right = Interior is perfect or very close to it in black standard ;)  I am guessing what PG stands for... power glide? If so, yes it is a "slip & slide" power Glide. I am intrigued by this car. I will try to get pictures in the coming days. I have "right of first refusal" on this car. So I need to kick it into gear if I want it.  Danny

Had a chance to look over a car for sale today at a car show. Wanted to see if I could get some opinions on value. I didn't have my camera with me and my flip phone sucks. Need to upgrade.
It is a 1967 Camaro Red in color. LOS car 327 210 HP base coupe with no options really to speak of... Motor and trans never touched, still has dust layer under the hood. 2 speed on the column. Has Owner protection warranty booklet with POP. Second owner purchased the car 4 or 5 years ago out of CA. The paint is spectacular with the double white pinstripe on the sides front to back. It is beginning to get a little tired in some places, but you have to look for it. It has not been polished and shows very well with no rot or damage I could see. Always garaged by en elderly couple who purchased it new and by the second owner. Interior is perfect or very close to it in black standard. Radio does not work. Antenna is in the right rear and looks like it was added? And not GM. Someone added a handle pull above the glove box and two small ones on the doors. Besides that the interior really looks great. Trunk is also in very nice condition with original jack sticker. No Posi sticker. Spare and jack are there. Glove box is lighted and has a very nice tire sticker on door. Seems to run good. Second owner never drives it, says he hasn't even changed the oil since he's owned it. Never wrecked as far as I can see. Quarters are factory stamped. Didn't see if the fenders had markings. It really is ALL there with original smog complete, coil, carb, everything but the water pump has been replaced. He thinks he still has the original. Owner is very cool and I have known him over the years through the car show circuit. Car would need a complete service front to back, hoses, fluids, tune-up, rear axle oil, trans service etc. etc. Brakes have been replaced. Cause the car sat for years in the original owners garage in Castro Valley, CA, and they got stuck.
NOW, the BIGGEST bonus of all, and really the only reason why I am looking at it is... The mileage is 14,000!!   Wish it was an RS, 4-speed, 295 HP convertible :D I may call him and go take a few pictures. With that said, and the info above. What is the current market value if ya had to guess?.. Danny

Passenger Mirror added at the dealership? Did they even MAKE a passenger side mirror, or flip the driver side one... Smog pulley on backwards... Battery cable ground should be at rad support, not right fender... GM door plaque stickers were not on these cars, I thought...No deck lid posi sticker...Windshield wiper arm dragging the lower trim. GEEZ, YOU CAN'T SEE THAT AFTER YOU INSTALL IT!!...Lots of little things. Why tape off the pad area? And if you ARE going to tape it off, why cut off part of the letters/numbers? Clean the whole thing! Then conveniently post that and the trans pictures blurry, ignorant. DO love the color with the blue interior. Danny

UPDATE!! I have to say I took the car for a drive down to Steve's Camaro in San Bruno to show him the car in person... Total mileage that day was about 100 miles. The tires do not catch an edge like the other tires. They pull, but not as bad as the older. Don't ask me why, maybe a technology update. But 4 years seems to have made a difference. I am much happier with these new ones. And just to make sure I wasn't imagining it, I drove the other car a few miles on the same road.. {Hwy 37 between Sears Point Raceway and Hwy 101} and it was pulling like hell. Almost sent me off the road! So stay tuned for more updates. I really think there is a difference. Also, there is not so much black buildup of rubber on the back lower quarters after a ride.?? Real name of these are

They have the all important visual. JUST got a set of 4 a few days ago. Mounted on the new car with assembly line correct "MICRO" wheel weights. There was a mold flaw and the dies had to be sent out for repair, as there was an actual CHUNK of the tire missing. So the shipment was delayed at Kelsey while they re-tooled for a different tire. Repaired the dies, and tooled back up for the Speedway's. But they are back in action as of June 12th!
I am not going to say I LIKE the ride. They are pretty much all over the road and catch edges on bad roads like wild fire! Put it this way, you can't put your left arm on top of the door and lay your right wrist over the steering wheel all cool and casual. BOTH hands on the wheel 90% of the time. At least with the crappy CA roads. Worst I have seen in my life time. But again, the visual is too good to pass up. I had a set of rims and radials on my first car for a while. I did 25 car shows and 20 Cars & Coffees last year, NO WAY I was going to keep changing them over. WAY too much work. After 2 times I sold them on CL. Just run the Bias.. Danny

FYI, to clarify, I myself was talking about the naming of a PONY CAR debate. As far as I always knew growing up the first MUSCLE car was the GTO. But NOW I can't imagine it NOT being the Max Wedge. Popularity contest might have been it. I guess it's all personal pref... Danny

Is this car the real deal, or is it a restamp machine of deception? My friend found this on eBay and is intrigued. I am, of course, skeptical. Having just a couple letters with NO other documentation would make me nervous. Date Base Car??... Danny

Latest response.. Sarcastic??

        Thank you very much for your concern about my car and taking the time to research and dispel all the information. You must have a great deal of time on your hands to be able to police and follow up on all the Z28 Camaro transactions on EBay since you have no interest in purchasing.
Iím sure every other seller of Z28ís are very pleased to hear from such a caring individual. Keep up the good work! And thanks again..

Sent a message saying to be careful of misinformation. And that there are many things incorrect in the ad. His response below.. Danny

         Do you actually know anything about L code cars? What many things. If you are not interested in the car why would you be emailing me? if you are interested send me your email address and Iíll educate you on L code Z28ís

Could have been the GTO. I just assumed with the name connection that it was Mustang. Here is Wikipedia info.. Who Knows..

 Defining the class

to search

Not to be confused with the Hyundai Pony.


  Ford Mustang
Pony car is an American class of automobile launched and inspired by the Ford Mustang in 1964. It broke all post-World War II automobile sales records, "creating the 'pony car' craze soon adopted by competitors."The term describes an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image

The 1964 Mustang provided the template for the new class of automobiles. The term "pony car" to describe members of its ranks was coined by Car Life magazine editor Dennis Shattuck

YOU'RE KILL'IN ME!!  " To me the Z/28 and all small block Camaros is more pony car than muscle car, and for sure the Mustangs would be more pony car, unless they had a big block.  ??? ??? ???   First off, the term was invented for the '65 Mustang.. Right? WAY before the Camaro. Then it just got lumped in 2 years later with the Camaro cause it was convenient and they are both smaller car body styles. PONY is a small horse, Mustang is a type of horse, and I have and NEVER will call a Camaro a PONY car! NOW, let's jump to 1968.. what car won the SCCA AND the NHRA that year? UH.. Z/28! Little baby 302.6 cubic inch small block engine. To bad it's NOT a real muscle car!! Heck I might as well sell both of mine ;D ;D ;D   Danny

Chick, you are the one that taught me about this in 2015. I feel I surely have the mechanical ability, but frankly am a little scared to take this on.. Camaronut, since you have done this several times, can I pay you to perform this task??.. ;) Danny

Who do we know that can restore an AC Delco Y55. I know they say to drain the battery, die cut the bottom off, strip the battery guts, install a Chevy Monza battery, glue bottom back on.. Is there a company that does this?.. Danny
