What if it didn't come from the factory with the C50.. Make a difference if dealer installed?.. Danny

My girlfriend bought me a first class ticket to MCACN non-stop both ways. It's my Birthday/Christmas present. Can't wait, SO excited! Can't wait to see all the wonderful cars. And the gang, Charley, Bob, Steve, Chick, Jon, Skip, Lonny... the whole gang! Just bought 2 new 32GB San Disks. Going to try to get some great video and pic's. Imagine 10 or 15 '67 Z/28's all in ONE spot! Did I mention I am excited. Danny

Car in picture is an Automatic ?? Danny

427 King is a member on all the sites and has an enormous amount of parts. He has some great cars also. His knowledge is vast. I have purchased a couple things in the past and they were fine. Could have just been a quick over site with thousands of parts for sale at any given time. Danny

Nice job Chick. I am not an expert and was taught this info a while back, probably by YOU, or someone on this site I'm sure.
  For me, this is the best way. What I have retained in the past is the G. The spacing from the lower part at the 90 bend, to the top of the roll around is MUCH taller. The repro is VERY close in that spot. Easy to spot in one second. Good luck in your search. Danny

Yes the sticker look OK, but do we have a guess as to why one got applied over the top of the other? Maybe it was realized after the first one got put down, that it should have been for a Z/28? Just trying to learn. I might ask for VIN and Production stamp pic's to help get the info out to be seen by potential buyers. I am sure they won't supply ALL the pictures asked for, but ya never know.... D

Thanx, I come on to try to get the feeling. I rather doubt ever posting about a new car I just bought, but ya never know I guess. Hoping to just not be living in my '96 4runner soon.  ha ha
Look at that beautiful 452 on the front valance!  :)  Chick, notice the battery ground on the rad support slightly eschew. Remember we talked about that. Also take a look at the solid rivet rad cap. This car is a couple weeks before mine. I remember talking to Steve S. at 2015 MCACN. I was pretty confident my car should have the open rivet. He said don't be too quick. And explained to me it was not a guarantee.
50th Anniversary this year. I wish I could go, greatest show EVER!! I can taste that pork chop at Gibson's!.. Danny

 Did you document that FLAT handled dip stick? Notice no clamp on power brake vacuum line. Must have just gotten changed at one time and pushed on with no clamp to get it up and going. Would love to see a few hundred more pic's. This is one of my dream cars... color and all... Danny

Kevin, thanx for the info. And yes William is correct I was talking outside door handles. I am familiar with the much thinner center part of the grab on repro/service replacement handles. I thought there was some other noticeable difference in the shape. Thanx... D

I have been reading some of JM reports over the years and noticed on some that it says firebird door handles on a certification of a Camaro. Could someone please post pic's and a description of the differences. I would like to learn how to distinguish between the two. Thanx.. Danny

 I sent you a bunch of both sides of the plate a while back. I don't know if I still have them, I'll have to take a look when I get home. In Pacific Grove for 2 or 3 more days. I lost my Microsoft picture manager, and any pictures I post here now end up being baby size. Can't see them well. I had that picture manager down to a science. Gonna have to post another way.

Chick has many pictures including many of my old car. I'm sure he will chime in. Danny

Maintenance / Re: Vapor lock?

During my time of figuring out different issues I did have success with this idea. And that is I had a strange baby crackling sound coming from the carb area after a drive. Took the air cleaner off and put my ear down by the front bowl. I discovered the gas was boiling in the front bowl. This only occurred on hot days above say 85-90 degrees and a longer than normal drive. Purchased a Phenolic spacer and it never did it again. Even with a 30 mile drive at 105 Degrees! I read a few articles that mentioned there really was not much of a performance gain on the 302 with carb spacers. VERY little bonus with a half inch spacer. NO benefit with any other thickness. With that said, I didn't wanna break my intake trying to install longer studs. So I installed a 1/4" with thin quality gasket above and below and the hold down nuts were just near flush with the top of the studs. Nice and sano, changed nothing but what I wanted it to do. No bad visual as it can't be seen when air cleaner is installed. Here is the link. I chose the 4 hole cause the 1/2" one that was discussed that obtained a small amount of power, was a 4 hole. Never knew if it made a difference. I had it running so well I didn't wanna change to the one big hole unit. Hope this helps...D
