General Discussion / repop parts
« on: October 06, 2021, 06:12:55 PM »
Just a heads up, parts seem to be running out. Tried to get some firebird seat covers in black no less, guys saying no materials, no help. Friend looking midyear vette stuff same answer. If you are on a project might want to order ahead if they have your part.

General Discussion / 1st 69 Z28
« on: December 22, 2020, 02:01:47 PM »
Anyone read the recent magazine article about this car serial #3? A production car with pilot parts, 68 parts. Seems odd a car like that would have a past with no information on how it got from a GM photo car to the street.

Any of you tried the led 194 bulbs to make things brighter? Dimmer problems? Color?

General Discussion / White 68 Yenko
« on: March 25, 2019, 12:57:30 AM »
The car is in an article in a popular muscle car magazine, May edition. It said to possibly be the first factory 427 delivered and has received a top of line restoration. It seems that pains were taken to locate correct parts and use original parts. But the 427 was made a 496 with 12.5 to 1 pistons and other mods. My question is why? Does anyone know the story behind this car?

Garage Talk / 4 post lift

I am thinking about a lift with the castors. No serious work just like to roll outside for cleaning and or painting the bottom. Also maybe stacking cars.

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?

Is it just me or were a lot of Z28,s built in April? Just seems like I see a lot of 04 cars.

Garage Talk / Measurement Tools
« on: July 05, 2018, 11:28:00 AM »
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.

General Discussion / GM hoods
« on: May 21, 2018, 12:05:30 PM »
For those looking GM metal, there is an advertisement on Roanoke VA craigslist. He says he has several GM flat hoods at $100.00 each. 67-69.

General Discussion / Car magazines

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 ?
