Mild Modifications / Re: Adding a non-gauge console?
« on: March 17, 2018, 11:56:26 PM »
Personally, If this car was ordered with a performance drivetrain, i.e. solid lifter big block, I would leave it as original as possible. That being the case the lack of options could indicate the car was intended to race. On the other hand, if it is a 350 car or possibly even a q-jet bb, I would not have any problem doing this addition. Depending how correct a swap you are willing to do, because there is a rear console light on a stick, you would need a different dash harness. If that light function can be overlooked , then the swap becomes easier. You could also run your own wiring from the light to the door switch to come on when either door opens. Besides the complete console needed ( including front metal mounting bracket) there may be a couple of holes to drill. All my cars are console cars so I wil have to defer to others as to mounting. The last thing would be a duct extension to bring floor heat over to the driver side.  My reply was done at the same time Steve above , so may have some redundancy.

I did not read every reply completely, so if this has already been said, apologies. If I had backing plates that were not up to par, after blasting, then I would find another pair of GM backing plates. I have scads of them to dig through. Same plate as a 10 bolt and you can find those (10 bolt)rears subbing as jack stands they are so numerous. The thought of buying repop seems unnecessary.

Thanks Darrell,

I don't know if I've 'noticed' this logo before (or not), but if I have, I'd forgotten... :)   Going back to my photos, I was able to zoom in and find the logo (or residue of it).. exactly where you said it would be.

Yikes, Gary! Is that your check valve on your Camaro? I thought your car was all untouched and/or correct ( even the parts you have replaced)?

(1)I'm guessing the gray one is from the assm. line.(2) Haven't found casting numbers on either yet.....Joe
(1)I would bet it is, as well. (2) you wonít find any. Grills do not have numbers on them.

Cool find. Tell us more. How many fuel lines? Pretty neat if both of them are BB cars. Pretty obvious the green one is a low-r horse with a/c

Which photo resizer did you use woodcam?
OK, I see the pics but that doesnít look like itís in a barn. :)

General Discussion / Camaro Numbers by State
« on: January 18, 2018, 04:37:41 AM »
With all the talk of data, legacies, authentication etc..I got to thinking, with all the data CRG has at it's disposal, is it possible (translate: without massive effort on the data holders) to have a breakdown of how many Camaros , from information known in the database, are in each state? I ask because I live relatively close to where the Norwood plant was located and I worked about a mile from the plant. I have gotten to know some old timers in my area that worked for GM. And boy!, the stories! A lot of stuff was going on. One of my friends told me about a warehouse that was up the road from the plant that had round the clock security. All the ZL1 engines were stored there, according to my friend. And there was a lot of street racing, by employees, after work, right in the area of the plant. For sometime now, I have assumed that there was a higher concentration of F bodies in the Cincinnati area, just because they were built there. For those who donít know, Norwood was a city within a city. Yep, on the East side an area was carved out and the city of Norwood, yes city, was surrounded by the city of Cincinnati. I digress, I would like to see a breakdown of registered cars, or cars in the database, broke down by state (cities would be even better). This may prove out my suspicions that more early F bodies are in Ohio or Kentucky/Indiana ( a quick geography lesson, Cincinnati is in the S.W. Corner of Ohio, bordered by Ky. & In.), than the other states save perhaps California. Or it could be that Texas, because of its size, has the most early F bodies? Thatís it. If it is a monumental tall order, I can go back to just wondering. Thanks CRG.

This might help and is constructive..  Don makes really nice decals.

My 1st thought. Not sure he is still doing these? For some reason , I thought his health may be preventing? Not sure where I heard that. Doesn't hurt to try though.
