General Discussion / Burgundy '69 Z28 For Sale, Ebay
« on: January 29, 2015, 08:15:25 PM »
Just a note to the group.  Seller on Ebay selling '69 Z28 stating car has its original number's matching engine.  I have confirmed for a client that it does not.  Here's a photos for all to see.  All of the characters for an 09C late build Z28 engine are incorrect.  The vin stamped numbers are not even close.  Just an FYI, buyer's beware.

General Discussion / 1967 Z28 tires Now Available

Attention all 1967 Z28 owners.  After 10 years of working with John Kelsey on the 7.35 x 15" redlines for the '67 Z28, the tires are now available through Kelsey Tire.  I received the first redline Goodyear Power Cushion sample today.  We have been working on the details of this project since last year.  Very exciting news for the hobby. 

The tires are awesome and right on the money.  Call 800-325-0091 for yours today!



General Discussion / 2013 Camaro Nationals
« on: June 14, 2013, 12:41:56 PM »
Just a note to say looking forward to this year's Camaro Nationals next week.  This year promises to be even better and better with expectations of over 600 cars.  We will have some very nice examples in the 'Legends Certification' class and also some newly found survivor cars for the Legends class.  The large air conditioned building that we now work in is very nice and the city of Frederick has opened its arms to this ACA Camaro National event. 

Hope to see you all there.


General Discussion / L89 Camaro At Mecum, Not So....
« on: January 27, 2013, 02:24:26 AM »
Just found out that an original L78 car without the original engine was represented as an all original L89 Camaro certified by me.  The car was certified but it was missing its original L78 engine.  This car is not an original L89.  It was an original L78 car.  The original 840 heads were still with the car when I inspected it three years ago.


General Discussion / 1969 Z28 For Sale, Beware!
« on: July 25, 2012, 02:14:30 PM »
Just wanted to let this forum know about a car listed for sale that may be suspect.  I was suppose to do an on-site inspection today on a '69 Z28 in New Jersey.  This trip had been planned for three weeks.  Last night I received an email from my client that the owner was NOT going to allow me to do an inspection on the car and had to buy the car without any inspection for I think, $55,000.00.  I am posting the vin here so enthusiasts will know to be careful.

9N576784, January build date.



General Discussion / Camaro Natiionals @ Frederick Fairgrounds 2012
« on: June 25, 2012, 09:09:01 PM »
The Camaro Nationals held at the Frederick Fairgrounds was a big success. All of the "Legend" and "Bow Tie" class cars are now in an air conditioned building at the fairgrounds with plenty of room for moving cars around. Best judging conditions we've ever had.

All of the national judging teams have been consistant now for many years. Larry Christensen and I have now been working together for over 20 years. Bob Harris and Brad McAdam are not far behind in the years we've worked together. The chemistry and consistancy of what we do is now better than ever.

We also introduced "Legend Vintage" judging this year for all original survivor type 1st Gen Camaros. Make arrangements to attend next year. Should be even bigger and better! Car count was well over 425 cars this year!

Special thanks go out to the Maryland Camaro Club and the American Camaro Association.  See you next year!

I received an email from Mike Strickler this morning.  He told me that Bill Jenkins passed away this morning. 

May he rest in peace.


General Discussion / 1967 Z28 Owned By Don Stowers
« on: April 20, 2011, 05:39:21 PM »
Has anyone kept in touch with Don Stowers?  He has an original copo car and '67 Z28.  Last I heard he was in the Carolinas............

I saw him at the York show a few years back.

Any help appreciated.



General Discussion / Barrett-Jackson, The Correction Factor
« on: January 25, 2011, 01:48:20 AM »
Huge correction factor on most big block cars at B-J and Russo Steele.  Hemi cars and copos are way down.  Way down. 
Very nice 1969 rally green copo Camaro way down...........nicest one there and one I certified with oem BE rear.  Did $107K.  Rick Henricks bought that one.  Another fathom green copo did $99K with the oem engine.  I did that certification too.  Hemi cars were really taking a bath except for the '71 convert which did 1.7 million at Russo Steele.
For the most part, Z28's were holding their own, the two nicest went for $75K and 80K plus commission.  Paul Kiel's Diamond Certified British green '68 Z28 sold for $56K.  That was a steal as it's one of the nicest in the country.  Bob Tyler owned it and decided to cash out on that car.  Bob has been a good client of mine for many years.  Great guy and many cars in his collection.   

Also saw many restamps and some repro cowl tags so again, it's buyer beware. 

Had a nice dinner with Bill Glowacki and the local Camaro club out there.  Great people!  Was as great time and the weather was unbeatable.
More later,

Wanted to share this with the CRG folks and people who hang out here.  I posted a new link on our CHP home page for all to read.  

In the terms of record breaking year, I didn't mean with the business.  What I'm saying is it was a spectacular 2010 racing season for Team Camaro Hi-Perfomance in both performance and competition.  Between setting a new NHRA "certified" national record and recording the quickest elapsed time & mph ever recorded by a stock 302 Z28 Camaro, we finished out the racing season in the "Top 10 Drivers" for Stock Eliminator.  Out of 233 competitors in division one's Stock Eliminator, we finished 9th in the point standings for the year.  That means a pay out for the "Top 10" drivers and some recognition at the NHRA awards banquet this Winter.

I want to thank all of our customer base, friends and family for your support this season.  Without you, this would not have been possible.  I am humbled by the whole experience this year, and it will be very hard to top this season in 2011.  We will give it our best effort though.

This new link is still in the building stages.  The paragraphs are not separated (they will be) and the software that runs it right now will not allow us to modify it.  It will be modified when time permits so that it's easier reading for everyone.  All of the photographs are posted in order for the season, starting top left to right and moving downward.  All photos are captioned too.  When you click on the photo, it will enlarge with the caption.  I hope that it gives everyone who hangs out here a better understanding of all that goes on at NHRA National Events and what is involved in setting an official NHRA National Record.

Thanks to everyone!



General Discussion / Prestone Brake Clean Parts Cleaner
« on: November 28, 2010, 06:12:43 PM »
Wanted to know if anyone on the forum knows where the Prestone aerosol can brake clean can be purchased?  Walmart here used to carry it and now they only stock the CRC, which we do not like at all, takes forever to dry and leaves a film.  The Prestone is in a tall yellow can.

Any help appreciated.  I have been to several stores in my area but no one carries it and CHP likes this brand the best.  Never hurts to post a request here.



General Discussion / NHRA Columbus, OH Points Race
« on: July 26, 2010, 03:50:45 AM »
Just an FYI for everyone.  Went to the quarter finals in Stock Eliminator at the Columbus Points race.  Earned some good $$$$.  Qualified very well, Ben Wenzel was also here with his '67 Z28.  Wanted to say thanks to some of my Camaro customers who stopped out to check out the racing.  Gene Zoll, Bill Orndorff and Dave Welch.

Very long weekend, and a lot of great racing.  Heading back to MD in the morning.


General Discussion / RE: 1969 Z28 Camaro with Fake Cowl Tag, 9N607652
« on: July 08, 2010, 04:38:35 PM »
Does anyone who visits these boards know anything about this car?  It's a real Z28 but someone has changed the cowl tag.  Probably to change the color.  The drive train is real and the car is for sale at Ash Tisdelle Classic Cars in Orange Park, FL.  I looked at the car yesterday.

Any help appreciated,


General Discussion / BRISTOL, TN, NHRA RACE
« on: June 17, 2010, 01:00:30 PM »
Just an FYI for everyone on this site.  Racing at the Bristol NHRA natinonal event this weekend, Fri, Sat and Sun.  Of special note, Ben Wenzel is here with his '67 Z28 too.  As many Camaro historians know Ben bought this car new and won the biggest drag racing event in 1967, the US Nationals in Indianapolis.  Ben and brother David are sportsmen legends in the world of drag racing! 

We are pitted together and it's so cool to see two real 1967 Z28's parked togehter.  You will not see that at ANY NHRA national events. 

Another cool car will be here too.  Donny Beeler's '67 L48 4-speed Camaro.  This Granada gold Camaro looks almost like it did when it rolled off the assembly line in 1967.  And it's fast!  Low 11 sec ET's.

What I have always loved about Stock Eliminator is the fact that this class is the only class in all of motorsports where the car has to remain almost identical to the way it left the showroom floor with the exception of safety equipment, headers and 9" rear tires.

Class eliminations for us is tomorrow.  This track is an awesome facility!


General Discussion / Atco Raceway Update
« on: April 30, 2010, 02:55:21 AM »
Just thought I'd let you all know that we thrashed the new '67 Z28 race car today.  Had clutch problems with the freshened up clutch and it slipped all the way down the track.  I aborted the run as not to ruin the new parts.  We pulled the trans and clutch at the track, took it all apart and made adjustments in my trailer on the work bench.  Put it all back together and ran quicker than the current NHRA national record both in ET and MPH.  10.51 @ 126.10 MPH.  The record is a 10.53 at 125.96.  We will go for the record tomorrow.  If we ice it down and can get the car hooked up at the starting line, it should run in the 10.40's.

More later,
