General Discussion / Holley Carb Leak?
« on: May 07, 2018, 03:02:30 AM »
Holley 4053 Carb is leaking fuel out of the secondary shaft on BOTH sides. This is a 780 Vacuum secondary. Carb was just rebuilt 200 miles ago. Car will not start without starting fluid, seems flooded out, then when it starts, the leaks stop. Turn off the car and the leak starts again???. WTF!! WAS running great until this morning. Pulled both bowls and cleaned the needle and seat, no change... Danny

Curious if this is a real original GM tag. What do we all think?... Danny

General Discussion / Car[s} Back in Garage!
« on: April 02, 2018, 05:44:54 AM »
Car BACK in the Garage, Raquel
Thru some unfortunate/fortunate circumstances, some creative financing by myself and my girlfriend, and some good ol’ American Ingenuity…our old ’68 Butternut Yellow Z/28 is back in the garage! I mentioned to Jon, Skip, Chick and the guys at dinner at Gibson’s last November at MCACN, that there was a possibility that this could take place. The buyers had not finished paying us the total amount. I let them slide as they are 35 year friends. SO it actually worked out in our favor as I was able to buy it back. I had a guy from New Zealand that wanted the car BAD for a few more $. But sold it to a friend. Could have been a “FRIEND RUINING” disaster as they STILL owed us 15K! BUT, I flipped it right back around and got the deal done. Between ALL of us…I don’t think his wife wanted to do the deal in the first place. So she is probably happy it’s gone. And my buddy is fine with it all, as he needed an influx of cash. So YAY!!!

 Also on another bonus note.. We have purchased David Beems 1968 Camaro Z/28 LeMans Blue Survivor.

 I seen this car on these Camaro websites and up close at MCACN and was excited to check it out. Flew out to Colorado and spent some time with Dave. Cool Cat with some great cars. Just took delivery today! I am leaving the 50 year old tires on the original rims with the tubes installed at half pressure and putting in storage. Will 4 X 4 block more or less the inside of the wheels so they are barely touching when stacked, if at all. (Advice from Charlie AKA Hubleyman}
 THAT’S why I was looking for aftermarket wheels. Sorry I told a small white lie here in a previous post, BUT I was taught MANY years ago to NEVER tell anyone about a car you are interested in purchasing/or HAVE purchased… until ALL the paperwork is complete, the car is paid for in full, and it’s in YOUR own garage.
 My plans are to work my cleaning/detailing/photo taking/documenting magic on every square inch of this baby! I May have to go in a little deeper like the last time. Just due to Raquel’s plastic cam gear only had THREE teeth left with 54,610 original miles. I installed a double roller Cloyes set-up.  This car has 54,000 and change, so we will see. I’ll get it all tuned, serviced, adjust the Valve Lash, Engine/Trans/Rear/Brake etc. Fluids changed, re-curve dist., timing etc. etc. THEN see how she runs before going any deeper. Her name is Melissa. Will start a new thread of it all.

 That’s all the good news for now. Things were bleak there for a while. As I didn’t have a place to live. And by far, still not perfect. But at this time, to say the least, I am a happy camper for sure… Danny

General Discussion / Aftermarket Rally Wheels
« on: March 12, 2018, 09:22:18 PM »
Looked at Summit "Vision American" wheels for repro Rally's. Read some good reviews. THEN read one where the guy said the car wobbled, and that all the rims had wobbles in them when they checked them without tires. SO, with that said, anybody have an issue with these wheels good or bad? Or is there a better match for an aftermarket Rally wheel that best fits the 60's style GM wheel.. Danny

General Discussion / My first Camaro VIN found
« on: March 06, 2018, 02:06:38 AM »
I have spent the last few weeks moving off my Fathers property after 50 years! Very sad days for sure. New owners took over. I got a feeling on that property that I get no where else in the world, and now it's gone  :( :'(   I took a video, had a good cry and left forever. Had a lot of stuff stored there including 2 40 foot cargo containers. Got it all moved and sold etc. While going thru boxes, I found an old registration and a couple other things related to my first Camaro purchase. A '67 Butternut Yellow RS. 4-Speed car with a console... I THINK. I called the number that was included, no luck, disconnected. I foolishly didn't take any pictures of it. It had the POP.. I sold it for 5K to purchase another car. Any info in the DB, or anybody recognize these numbers? Danny

General Discussion / What is the option code for '68 Mats?

Decoding/Numbers / This stamp look original?
« on: February 15, 2018, 11:37:27 PM »
This block has a little different texture higher up on the pad area. Edge still looks rough, so maybe not ever decked. Is this an original stamp?... Danny

General Discussion / Me Driving at Sonoma Raceway on the track
« on: February 04, 2018, 09:22:07 PM »
Forgot I had this, VERY short video of me driving on the track at Sonoma Raceway. They have a pace car for every 3 cars. So you don't try to be a super star by yourself :D :D  I got up to about 70 MPH. They said keep up with-in a few car lengths, but if you fall behind, catch-up on the straights. SO, I fell behind on purpose in front of the grand stand straight, and jumped on it a little for the camera. Good Times! 4 laps on the regular track, and two on the Nascar part. THEN you keep your helmet on and take 2 hot laps with a sprint car driver. THAT scared the sheep poop out of me. I will NEVER do that part again! This is a semi rare occurrence for sure. They only do it for 3 or 4 hours ONE day a year rain or shine. Cost is $150, and worth every penny.  Danny

1967 - Orphans / '67 Muncie - 7L122279
« on: February 03, 2018, 05:31:58 AM »
I have two Muncie's in my storage. This is the first one. Want to see if someone here has the car to match. Will let it ride a while, then off to CL... Danny
     Muncie from a 1967 Camaro built at the Los Angeles plant, VIN 7L122279.
     Trans was assembled on November 1st, 1967 (P7S01 - P = Muncie, 7 = 1967,
     S = Nov and 01 = 1st). I think it's a M20

General Discussion / Holly Sheep Poop Batman, I am going to MCACN!!
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:28:04 AM »
My girlfriend bought me a first class ticket to MCACN non-stop both ways. It's my Birthday/Christmas present. Can't wait, SO excited! Can't wait to see all the wonderful cars. And the gang, Charley, Bob, Steve, Chick, Jon, Skip, Lonny... the whole gang! Just bought 2 new 32GB San Disks. Going to try to get some great video and pic's. Imagine 10 or 15 '67 Z/28's all in ONE spot! Did I mention I am excited. Danny
