15x7 trim rings won't fit on DF wheels.

I think it was the other way around. The 4 was too close to the 1.

Tony, are the original quarters and fenders no longer there?  If they're still there, I would use them as your guide for where to drill.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Craig Fisher

Craig and I were friends. He was an underrated racer and a quality human being. He earned the first points for Chevrolet in the Trans-Am by virtue of his second place finish at Daytona and the first points for Pontiac when he raced a Firebird in '68. He will certainly be missed.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Unusual valve covers and intake ??
« on: August 05, 2018, 12:10:49 AM »
It looks like an Edelbrock SY1 Smokey Ram intake manifold that has had the lettering ground off the lid prior to polishing it.  I have never seen Moroso valve covers in that style before.  Kind of an interesting look.

No documentation as being a real Z-28 but may have real Trans-Am history.

Was in the well known multi-car crash at Road America in 2005.

I got myself a dated Holley carb too.  Thanks for the heads up.

Great to have you back, Mike.  I understand your issues with Photobucket.  I paid the $400 just to keep the pics alive here but I'm very relieved that they got wise to that lunacy and made the cost more manageable.

Yes, it is a nice car.  Of note, it originally had the U57 tape player on the front of the console. When restored, the owner at that time preferred adding tach and gauges. It was not a gauge car when new. A 6K redline tach was evidently installed but that is not typical for an LOS car built May and later, which this car is.

Waterneck should be silver.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: JL8 / J56 4-wheel disc racing brakes
« on: May 26, 2018, 04:48:12 PM »
Thanks, Nick. These are what was removed from a 4-wheel disc service package rear axle assembly. A road racer would not have had a need or desire for a parking brake system.

General Discussion / Re: Crossram Package

So, what year was it that the cross ram was first run on the car? I had previously thought it was 1970 but was it earlier?
