I just acquired a 68 Z28. The car has all smog equipment intact and also the couple had a cowl plenum that came off another car they had but is long gone. Would it be best to install the smog equip. or go with the cowl plenum. Car is pretty correct otherwise. Thanks for any thoughts. ???

General Discussion / 302 engine pad rust
« on: June 02, 2011, 12:50:32 AM »
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what is best to clean off rust that has accumulated on my serial number pad of my 302 . I had the motor rebuilt 2 years ago and brought it home and left it on an engine stand since because of family issues. The engine has formed rust on the engine pad as the block was left untouched for 24  months. I guess I should have put some oil on the bare area before it was stored away I do not want to harm this area as it is the born with 302 for my 68 Z. Any ideas,Thanks  ???

General Discussion / original titles
« on: November 15, 2010, 08:25:30 PM »
I have a 68 camaro that was brought up from the states into Canada 7 years ago.I found out the fellow that brought the car into Canada did not have all the export paperwork done. I have the car in my name but the problem is the original title was never with the car just a photocopy. Customs says without the original title from 1968 the export papers cannot be processed. Any thoughts.

Will a 1969 chambered exhaust system work on a 68 car? Does anyone make the correct turn down tailpipes for the chambered systems. I know it was never available from the factory but I enjoy my Z for what it was meant for. Thanks

How do you remove the ignition switch on a 68 camaro. All dash lights will come on with key but when I turn to start  the lights go off and starter does not turn over. Also the door buzzer works with the key removed with door open
