Restoration / Total rewiring, bare shell 67 convertible.
« on: September 24, 2018, 06:03:53 PM »
 Hi guys,
 I will be installing All electrical pieces soon, I am looking for any heads up regarding situations I may encounter. It seems to be heads up installation and not anticipating too much trouble
 but will be happy to listen to any tips.
  The car is a early 1967 RS/SS-350 convertible  (I know, a bunch have popped up here lately) with power top, A/C, and electric windows. The dog house is not yet mounted as I plan to wire that
   while I  have unfettered access, nor is the dash pad installed. All the wiring accessories are from M&H.

    Thank you,

Originality / 67 11B parchment seat covers
« on: November 28, 2016, 08:26:08 PM »
Can anyone shed some light on the seat appearance  for a 1967 11B 797-Z convertible? The seats do not have the black insert line, they are all white, I also noticed that the seats are pleated up
to the insert as opposed to two flat panels that are present on seats with the black inserts. Googling pictures I find both styles. does someone reproduce the solid color style?
     Thank you,

General Discussion / May 1968 trim tag irregularities
« on: September 11, 2014, 11:49:31 PM »
Does any one have any information regarding wrong week being used on the trim tag for much of the month of may? My O5C's official production date is 5/6/68, I would think it should be O5A. Another member mentioned a "known" TT snafu occurred during this time period but was unable to expand on that. Does anybody have a LA O5A, O5B or O5D ?

Trans-Am Camaros / Historic Trans Am Events 2014

I was wondering what would be the most complete Trans Am event to attend?
 There is the Sonoma event on May 17, Rolex/Mazda event on Aug 14, and the Coronado event in September.
  We want to see the trans Am events with the most cars in attendance.
   Any advice or recommendations would be apprecitated.

General Discussion / Edlebrock 1967 SS TEST CAR
« on: May 06, 2013, 09:23:11 PM »
This past Sunday I was able to attend the Edlebrock car show and was pleasently suprised to find out that the complete display bio for this car has been updated, It now states that it "came with a first year 350 V8" no longer the Hot Rod " factory ran out of 350's" 327 story, If further refers to an October build " hightly decorated life that hasn't stopped since October 1966"  No longer "the first Camaro in California and the third built" The car has a solid front sub frame. It now sports a Edlebrock engine, late SS gas cap, (needs a SS350) 15 x 7 Ralleys. a nice car.
  On a side note, the Smokey # 13 was not on display this year.

Originality / 68 black SS horn cap
« on: April 04, 2013, 01:09:08 AM »
My horn cap has always been brushed metal with a BLACK circle with WHITE letters, I neither see it in the steering wheel reports or in any repo catalogs. The car is a 05C LA with a standard 712 interior. I have not poped it off to check for a part number.
 68 SS onwers, what do you have? I have pictures but can not post.

General Discussion / Early 68 Los RS TT
« on: February 04, 2013, 11:06:18 PM »
Getting ready to pick up a original owner R/S (L-30, PG, 749 Int. Y-2 pnt. A/C) I have known this car since '77 but have not seen it in 25 years. The only pictures I have are general but not percise. It seems to be 08E, followed by 102 B (or  I 129)  scheduel, LOS 01055  body number, Has "astro" script windows, black ash tray, also a odd drivers side mirror. I do not have the VIN #.
 When did Los Angeles start 68 production? I always thought production stsrted in September.
