Thanks Buddy. Didn't realize it was that early. That price list was dated April 1st 1969(I missed that). There would've been lots of Z/28 made from there to end of  production run.....Joe

General Discussion / Spoilers
« on: January 11, 2019, 08:54:02 PM »
I was trying to figure out when spoilers were part of the Z/28 package & how many Z/28 may have been sold after that.
I see 19040 spoilers in 1969. Subtract 450-500 for Z10 & 3675 for Z11 leaves approx. 14900 cars that had the spoiler option....Joe

The way they did thing in 1970 must've changed some. Previously exh manifolds were painted with the rest of the engine. I know this to be true at least on big blocks....Joe

General Discussion / Re: How to tell GM fenders from aftermarket
« on: January 03, 2019, 11:52:49 AM »
If they are GM fenders (production line) they will have a number stamped on the inside edge near the header panel where the hood closes. Hood will have a number on the drivers side edge near the back of the hood. These numbers are very hard to see. When I'm looking for fender wells, I want to see original staple holes where all the rubber pieces are. See if that will help.
BTW if you want to go NOS, find the oldest NOS stuff you can. I've seen discussion about people preferring parts before the early 80's. There is still some used parts out there. I myself would rather use old original parts than anything new...Joe

  The lower shroud is depicted in the '69 Camaro AIM section C60 page B4. I have been involved with '69s for 43 years and have never seen one.
 
The baffle or shroud did exist. I've seen pictures of originals. I have holes in my chassis where it was. There was a guy making a short run of them a few years back. A little pricey but I needed one for my car....bought it....Joe

General Discussion / Re: Bloomington Gold adding Camaro's for 2019

The Corvette people seem to think there is two kinds of people in the world, those who own Corvettes and people who wished they owned a Corvette.
I would never own a Corvette. To me, they're plain. The first generation Camaros had so much to offer, so many differences that you could come up with a totally different Camaro than your friend had. Interiors alone were so many different styles & colors. These are only my opinions. Everybody has their own.....Joe

Both exhaust pipe are in one long piece. The next 2 pipes go over the axle to the muffler. The RH tail pipe is welded to the muffler. Everything else is clamped. The tail pipes are chrome...Joe

It seem to me when I had metal roofs put on my house & garage they used something like this. I need to go by the roofing shop to check out what they were using...Joe

Some of the rebuilders used to paint engines & transmissions gold. After some years, it might look brass or bronze...Joe

So based on the the crumpled header panel, grille was replaced with a black one? (shouldn't it be silver?) And emblem left off? Build sheet would more likely be a LOS car? Spoiler added? What is that shifter? Never seen one like that?
Kind of looks like a super shifter but shorter. By the looks of the boot & carpet, I'll bet there's a huge hole....Joe
