No, it's actually a 1971 Camaro. I better look again. I will be near that car again in a few days. Danny

Decoding/Numbers / This stamp look original?

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

Kurt helped me get these to the right size.  :)
Found a couple still pictures. One picture I am 4 wheel drifting into and out of a turn and the other is nose down in preparation for a sharp right. I wish the photographer waited JUST a second more and the front wheels would have been crossed!... Danny

I have had 5 Y55's over the years. A couple early ones, and a couple service replacements without the "ENERGIZER" embossed on the top. Chick got one of my best ones, if not THE best one, also mike, another member here. I picked one up a while back in very nice NOS condition. It is a service replacement.

I actually contacted a couple companies about the Y55, and asked if they would reproduce one. I was told that there is just not enough demand to retool and make them.. I always refer to them as reverse post. Reverse polarity to me, never sounded right, sounds like a positive ground thing, or similar. Like you are changing something. JMHO... The polarity isn't being changed, just the posts are being switched, right? Still a 12 volt negative ground. Just happens to be moved to the other side. Danny

It really was fun. I had done it many years ago when I got to do a little with the Bob Bondurant team. But it was a fresh experience and super fun! Found a couple still pictures. One picture I am 4 wheel drifting into and out of a turn and the other is nose down in preparation for a sharp right.

CAN'T get them to post. Says JPEG not a usable file.. How the heck do I convert it to something else?

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 / Another Muncie '65
« on: February 03, 2018, 05:33:42 AM »
 This is the second of two.. Danny

    1965 model year vintage, small 7/8 cluster gear countershaft
    P0205: P = Muncie, 0205 = Feb 5th assembly date,
    K in the VIN stamp indicates a Chevrolet (I believe Chevelle or El Camino) built at the Kansas City, Mo plant.
    I also think this might be an M20.

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

I never thought of using " PAINT " option. It works good. I punched 25 in the box and listed the items on a site and they were good in size. Problem is, if you THEN try to email those same pictures, the are baby size. I wonder if you can go back? Mike, What is the max number you use to list pictures on THIS site and have them clear, and still be large enough in size to see?.. Danny

Can someone post the actual link to the "Light Image Resizer" that has been discussed here. I went to Google and there was 20 different ones. Thanx... Danny

Up late, Can't sleep, nerve damage killing me. Roaming Camaro sites..
 I talked with Bob Ashton at the end of the 2017 awards ceremony. I said I would like to head-up the 2018 '68 Z/28 display. Should be able to get a 25 car display in a flash. Maybe even every color offered. And just keep it going for '69 also. He said, {at the time} there will be NO 50th Anniversary '68 Camaro Z/28 display. And that he will have a '68 display of different cars that are turning 50, including Camaro, but NOT specific to Z/28. I was/am bummed big time. Sure, maybe there will be a couple '68 Z/28's, but was really looking forward to a full display.  :( Danny
