A friend told me today that he has this Muncie Transmission in his '62 Corvette; he's looking for a correct T10 for the car...

PM me if you know of the car or are interested in the trans and I'll put you in contact...

Trans-Am Camaros / Robert A. (Bob) Christiansen obit
« on: November 23, 2021, 03:27:03 PM »
I just learned my old friend, Robert (Bob A. Christiansen has passed.   He actually died in Kentucky in January 2020, but I only found out recently.   I only talked with him a few times after IBM closed their shop in Huntsville and moved him to KY in the 80's.  His Obit is here..

Here is his Racing Sports Cars record:

He raced for years in SCCA and in Trans AM series ('69 Z28) and later IMSA (73 Camaro).   His car and team were labeled with R.A.C.E.  (for Robert A. Christiansen Enterprises).   He was a small racer, but a good one and always had his car ready, but was limited due to $$ as most small racers were and are.   Maybe some of you old TransAM racers will remember him as he did most or many of the Trans AM series races in the eastern half of the country for a few years.

RIP Bob!

Originality / Does anyone have a 'Heater Delete' Z28 ??
« on: October 06, 2021, 12:04:47 PM »
I just read an article (an older article) from Old Cars Weekly on a '69 Z28 'Car of the Week' from 2014.

In that article, it was mentioned that the heater could be 'deleted' ...   and it made me realize I'd never seen a Camaro without a heater.   Have any of you?   Do any of you own a Camaro with 'heater delete' from the factory?   

I'm curious about what was used to block off the firewall openings, and the heater hose connections on the engine from the factory?

Hello 2021!    and Goodbye 2020   (and good riddance!~)...   Maybe 2021 will bring us more normal days and even 'car shows'...

Trans-Am Camaros / Bob Mitchell obituary
« on: December 01, 2020, 02:46:24 PM »
I was saddened today to learn of the passing of an ex-worker, and 'Racer' friend Bob Mitchell.   his obituary is here from the Huntsville (AL) Times today.

Among his many racing exploits was ordering and buying a new '69 Z28 (with JL8 brakes as well) in late 68, and immediately converting it for SCCA racing.   I worked with Bob for several years in the Advanced Sensors directorate of the Army Missile Command's McMorrow Labs; he was an outstanding engineer and individual.  I also worked some with him on his racing cars, and crewed for him one year at Road Atlanta.  I was very saddened today to learn of his passing.

His full 'Racing Sports Cars' record is here...  from 1963 thru 1981

Garage Talk / Wishing all a great day on Veteran's Day 2020

Wishing everyone a great day on this Veteran's Day 2020
(borrowed from the internet)

We Are Veterans.

We left home as teenagers for an unknown adventure.

We loved our country enough to defend it and protect it with our own lives.

We said goodbye to friends and family and everything we knew.

We learned the basics and then we scattered in the wind to the far corners of the Earth.

We found new friends and new family.

We became brothers and sisters regardless of color, race or creed.

We had plenty of good times, and plenty of bad times.

We didn't get enough sleep.

We smoked and drank too much.

We picked up both good and bad habits.

We worked hard and played harder.

We didn't earn a great wage.

We experienced the happiness of mail call and the sadness of missing important events.

We didn't know when, or even if, we were ever going to see home again.

We grew up fast, and yet somehow, we never grew up at all.

We fought for our freedom, as well as the freedom of others.

Some of us saw actual combat, and some of us didn't.

Some of us saw the world, and some of us didn't.

Some of us dealt with physical warfare, most of us dealt with psychological warfare.

We have seen and experienced and dealt with things that we can't fully describe or explain, as not all of our sacrifices were physical.

We participated in time honored ceremonies and rituals with each other, strengthening our bonds and camaraderie.

and I can add the following....

We are VETERANS of the US Armed Services, and we wouldn't trade or exchange our service for anything!    Let the sacrifices not be in vain!

Site Comments/Discussion / No more 'new posts' option??
« on: October 12, 2020, 12:43:48 PM »
For the last few weeks, it's been much more difficult for me to find 'new posts' in the forum.  Previously, the site would come up with New Posts listed ... now I have to 'search' thru all the sub forums for any recent messages.    Has something changed with the software? or have I accidentally screwed something up in my 'setup' here??

General Discussion / Norwood Production Rate?
« on: October 04, 2019, 02:58:16 PM »
Am I remembering correctly that Norwood produced 912 cars per day in 1969 on a fixed line rate on a SINGLE SHIFT??   I know JohnZ told us the details many times over the years but my memory about 'no of shifts' and 'overtime' is failing me....?
