General Discussion / Clones, tributes, recreations..
« on: January 10, 2013, 03:41:54 PM »
I certainly don't want to create a long discussion here, just a comment about our hobby in general. I've enjoyed searching through Ebay for many years looking at only first generation Camaros. (And a few other makes and models). I'm just really getting tired of all the clones, tributes, and recreations. I realize cloning is a good way to enjoy a rare Camaro without the real worry of wrecking it, and that's fine. But we've gone overboard. Now, these so-called classic car dealers are doing it. Complete with fake trim tags.  I don't consider them enthusiasts. I find it sad what is happening to the hobby. I bought my first 67 Camaro in 1982 and I remember back in the 80's how we drooled over  Z's, Yenkos. etc. But now, there are so many well-done clones, when I see a real one is kind of like 'so what?' I'm just saying, I think we've over-indulged. Too many people wanting everything. Over-demand. It's killing the Camaro hobby for me. Just my thoughts anyway..

General Discussion / Has anyone seen one or both of these two Camaros?

This is a long shot, but both of these cars were stolen from Ft. Lauderdale area.
VIN 124677N212464. White/ red base convertible
VIN 124377N156580  Gold/Black RS/SS coupe. It had it's original 350 and 12 bolt when stolen and was re-painted blue

The first car has been gone since 1985, so little hope the last car was stolen in 2000

Just thought I'd put the VINs out there if anyone comes across either of them. I still have their titles and keys!

Originality / 1967 Camaro L30/M20
« on: November 28, 2012, 04:01:49 PM »
I recently bought a 67 L30/M20 Camaro. It doesn't have it's original engine or trans, but from what I can tell the rear is the original. It's a LOS car built 01D and has the 10 bolt posi in it. Code PE. I'm pretty sure it's the original rear. The car does have the traction bar support plate under the RH side of the rear seat. However, there is no bracket welded to the RH axle tube, never appears to have been one and there is no well-nut in the RH rear frame rail to secure the traction bar. I thought this strange.
