General Discussion / Canadian Camaro
« on: October 08, 2023, 06:47:14 PM »
This person claims CRG has a report on his car stating his 69 was shipped to Canada new without a motor or tranny.
The thread is not closed. The OP in question wrote that title, and he keeps changing the title many times to add to confusion.

Left this world doing what he loved in his eighties. Banging a stick in his 67 Camaro at Lebanon Valley Dragway.

Garage Talk / This hobby is dying

My friend is at Ford Carlisle with his survivor lightweight 62 Galaxie. His is a featured car and inside. He said there are hundreds of Ford Focuses on display, and nearly a thousand late model Mustangs with typical fart pipes. There is a retired 80 year old race car driver there signing autographs who said old cars are pieces of garbage and new cars with all the computers are much better.

Garage Talk / Muscle Car Review-Not a Camaro
« on: December 18, 2016, 01:13:20 AM »
 Not a Camaro but Muscle Car Review chose this car of a close friend for an article.  This was chosen for a write-up over his real 10-10 69 Z/28, a survivor 440 Six Pack Shaker Hood Challenger, and a survivor 340 Shaker Hood Cuda. Those are just three of dozens. I'm doing a rotisserie resto on an all original, build sheet, black 70 SS El Camino for him, and an original 70 442 is just getting frame on bodywork and paint. I like the fact that he actually drives his cars, and will do so after a nut and bolt resto on the Camino. Getting caught in the rain or driving down a dirt road is not an issue if the situation arises. The Road Runner was a pleasant surprise to the author as it represents the era differently than all the trailer queens out there. I hand lettered the decklid years ago and it was partially buffed off to match the patina of the car. I happen to like the body styles, lines and graphics of Mopars.

Restoration / Inaccurate glass installation and technical information
« on: March 08, 2016, 02:27:26 AM »
I came across this long ago and was not surprised that the magazine and the author have no hands-on experience in the collision and restoration industries:

If it is a magazine it must be true. Numerous inaccuracies are within this article.

Restoration / Pot metal chrome services / taillights
« on: January 28, 2016, 09:13:52 PM »
I'm looking for recent info on the best platers to do a pair of 67 taillight bezels. Tri-City told me about S&H Plating and Advanced Plating. I'm aware that CHQ makes respectable repro bezels but that is not what the customer wants. Thanks.

Originality / Big Block Dipstick
« on: November 21, 2010, 05:24:23 PM »
This E-bay arched tube is unlike the straight tubes I have, part#3928901. Is this E-bay assembly for a truck or some other application?

Originality / Big Block dipstick
« on: February 24, 2010, 01:33:34 AM »
It's been stated in past threads that original BB dipsticks don't have a part number or oil specifications on the blade - all they have are the full and add marks and "Engine Oil M". Please verify that this is origional or just an OTC replacement. It has a yellow tip and no part number. What is the 6041?
Sorry about the pic size. Have not posted small pictures in a while. Can't remember how to just post a link and not a billboard.

Decoding/Numbers / motor mount id

Limited 69 knowledge. OEM or aftermarket? I have another, same bolt pattern without #s but the interlocks are formed differently. Thank you.

I surrender. I cannot find the "modify" button that the help section states to be in existance.

General Discussion / Radius Rod Effectiveness
« on: April 19, 2009, 02:06:21 PM »
Is a 67 radius rod effective enough to warrant it's addition? I have come across one and would prefer it to traction bars. I have multis only now.

Decoding/Numbers / 67-8 filler neck shield
« on: November 03, 2008, 05:35:15 PM »
What significance do the #'s stamped on the shield have? They are as follows and one is not entirely easy to read and the other can be inverted to read two ways:  1.)  N25?
                                                                                        2.)  6H or H9

General Discussion / Gratitude
« on: October 31, 2008, 11:15:20 PM »
    This is to extend a large measure of gratitude to John Z. I have read his data and papers written on the subject of timing and vacuum advance. With his consultation, his VA Can recommendations and tuning parameters, I have greatly improve performance.
    I post this on open forum not for the regulars who are aware of John's knowledge, but for those who are new and to value his advice. Acquisition of his knowledge in past posts and in the future is an understated asset.
    Thanks again John. Today's ride with the update was exhilarating.
