A local has some parts for sale. Looks like a 67 327 pretty complete code HC, cast 3903352. Has double humps and quadrajet. Anybody know for sure what it is before I waste time going to look?

General Discussion / Black console gauges
« on: December 13, 2018, 03:58:02 PM »
I was reading about a said original car that had black face gauges and said it was because of shortage or employee error. It is a Norwood car so I don,t think that black units would even be in the factory. It said sold new Jan. of 69. Any cars with original black units out there? They did look good with the black interior.

Maintenance / Coolant crystals
« on: November 19, 2018, 08:17:03 PM »
Not my camaro but my 64 vette. It does not get driven much but green crystals form in the coolant when it has been sitting. It is hard when dry and mushy when wet. It seems to form on the aluminum intake and the aluminum expansion tank inside. Over the years it has been flushed and coolant changed. It also seems to corrode the aluminum. Both the intake and tank have been replaced and the radiator is a brass replacement. Any thoughts?

Has anyone tried the calipers from Harbor Freight? I would use one very little but the price is right. I would just use it for general things, not engine clearances or things like that. I have their temp laser and it works great and one of the magazine tests rated it very well. Just trying to do better than a cresent wrench and steel ruler.

Reading an article about barn finds at macn last night. They must be getting hard to find. Camaros and others neat looking but missing born with engines, ect, repaints,rust buckets. One Camaro said big fish in NC that waited for big time angler. Here in NC we call the big fish a Carp. They wait so long because no one wants it for the price to pay.

General Discussion / Ebay purchase
« on: February 27, 2018, 01:37:29 PM »
I recently bought a fairly expense part on ebay using paypal. The seller seemed very nice but gave pretty good excuses for delaying shipment a couple of times. Well now he has dropped off the earth. No calls answered, no emails answered. The receive date on the listing has passed. What is my best way to go from here? File ebay or paypal or ?

Garage Talk / Tri Power
« on: October 19, 2017, 06:15:54 PM »
Thinking of running a 427 tri power on my L78 just for cruise in shows. I have used rectangle port intakes over oval port heads, no problem. Can I use oval port intakes over rectangle port heads? Some power loss not a factor, just cruising and have way more power than tire now.

General Discussion / Car magazines

Happy 4th. I read a lot of car magazines especially muscle car articles. I would guess a lot of the writers are not really serious car guys as much as writers. You see that many of the older guys who may have (been there) in the day are retiring. More and more I see articles that have many items that are not correct. I feel sure that they write what someone told them about the cars. But to publish things worldwide, it would seem that to check things for correctness would be wise. I read things like (original, rare, ect) that are clearly not correct. I even saw a write up on an original owner 66 GTO that had a spec sheet were the drawing showed a 67 model. Wonder if they ever thought about getting someone knowledgeable about the car type to proof read the article first?

General Discussion / 1969 Feature car

It says the car was bought new at a Chapel Hill NC dealer. Having been living in Durham NC all my life, which the city limits of meet Chapel Hill now, I know that the dealer would be Harris Conners Cheverolet which is now a BMW and others dealer. If the owner has names but no contact if he wants to PM me I may know some of them. A couple good friends worked at Harris Conner and the street race guys around here were a pretty tight group. Harris Conner was the only Chevy dealer in Chapel Hill which was and still is a small college town, home of UNC Chapel Hill from which the color " Carolina Blue " originated because it is the team color.
I also think I remember the car.
