General Discussion / AACA board of directors
« on: September 16, 2018, 11:50:11 PM »
OK, guys, pay attention. He would never toot his own horn so I will do it for him. Our own Phil, Lakeholme, is in the running for a seat on the board of directors of AACA. We need some new blood and Phil would be a good choice. If you are not an AACA member, you should be and you can join for half price for the rest of the year AND have the privilege of voting in Phil to an important position. There are some very important decisions to be made in the next few years in AACA. The AACA needs some new ideas of how to encourage younger members to join. The new building is going to take lots of thought to pull it off and not put the club in the hole financially. If you choose not to become a member encourage anyone you know that is a member to vote for Phil. Good luck to you, buddy.

Restoration / rusty chrome
« on: August 28, 2018, 10:38:44 PM »
I just cleaned my BB valve covers. They are decent driver quality but the factory chrome was poor. In the grooves at the bolt holes there is very little chrome, platers call it a shadow where it does not plat correctly because of the shape. I used paper towels soaked in white vinegar . Laid them in place about a day or two and it removed almost all traces of the rust down to bare metal. I scrubbed it with cleaner and a stiff brush. Then I dabbed a little aluminum paint where it was bare and blended it and they don't look too bad. Guess I will see how long to lasts.

So let's hear about the Mountain Green BB on the homepage. Looks just like mine is supposed to look.  And even about '68 Z. And I wish I would have found the '69, it great the way it is.

Boy Howdie, you came up with some winners for this month. Would like to see a few more pictures of both the '67 and '69. Love the '68, have always been a fan of Corvette Bronze. Thanks for all the effort that goes into CRG!

General Discussion / new AACA museum display
« on: May 13, 2017, 08:58:05 PM »
If you can get there the AACA museum has a new display that just opened last night. They took out all but three of the regular cars and put in about 60. The main display is their version of barn finds. I hate that term but they have very good choices of cars, mostly untouched originals. And the 50th ann. of Camaro/Firebird is there too. A friend's '68 Z-28 is on the turn table, think it has 17,000 miles. No cheating with pics, you have to go see it yourself. And no politics about the AACA/museum fight.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/152409614644?rmvSB=true   I have nothing in this, don't even know where  Moscow is.I saw it on Barnfinds website. It claims 375hp with a four speed but has an automatic brake pedal. Sounds expensive to me too.

General Discussion / Camaros in AACA museum
« on: January 26, 2014, 03:46:29 PM »
As some of you know I live close to the AACA museum. There's a new exhibit that started this week for custom cars. One of the customs is Ken Faust's red custom '67, think that how to spell his name. It was built about 20 years ago and is still incredible. It was dubbed the most beautiful Camaro by one of the major magazine .  There's also a red survivor '68 SS350 with white interior, very nice original car. I think I remember it being at the Md. show a few years ago. If you are in the Hershey area take a look. As always AACA members get free admission.

General Discussion / Nice RS's on homepage
« on: March 06, 2013, 08:04:02 PM »
Thanks for useing my '67 RS/SS on the homepage this month. I wish it looked that good right now, it was only a few weeks old when that picture was taken. It is a true RS/SS 396 turbo 400, with PS, column shift, and custom black bench seat. I know the car since new.

« on: January 25, 2013, 03:24:48 AM »
Was anyone at the MC and Corvette Nat'l show in Rosemont, Il.? I'm looking at the new Hemming's Musclecar magazine and am wondering about the blue '68 Z-28 pictured on page 42. Does anyone know this car? It's listed as being sold through Yenco. Is it LL teal blue? Thanks.
