Take a look at CHEVROLET - 50 YEARS IN FLINT. Some really cool pictures.


Restoration / Power window wiring routing
« on: August 16, 2017, 02:22:06 AM »
A friend is trying to install power windows in his 68 convertible and needs a picture of the factory wiring harness routing to the rear quarter window motors. I really don't want to pull my car apart to take pictures so I'm hoping someone with factory power windows already has a picture of what he's looking for!

Can anyone help?

Check out THIS PIECE OF WORK! VIN is 124378N479990 and doing a Google search shows a TON of hits!!

Reproduction window sticker showing Matador Red and black interior while the trim tag shows Ash gold and gold interior. Rally Sport? I don't think so!

As Captain Kirk would say

SO (short pause) MANY THINGS (long pause) WRONG!!

Boy, someone better do their homework on this one!


General Discussion / Title for sale. Get your clear title here!

HERE'S one that will show up with a car one day. Keep an eye out for it.

VIN: 124379N510878

This is a clear title for a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro. I have a few crates of parts also that go with it from the Camaro. That is all I have for it. No body or body parts or frame etc left. NO CALLS. Txt or email PHONE NUMBER REMOVED FOR PRIVACY PURPOSES

I guess he doen't know it's against federal law to sell titles.

And HERE'S what it looked like before it was chopped up!


General Discussion / Just like the factory did it!
« on: September 30, 2016, 07:31:49 PM »
I'd be willing to bet that over the years, more than just a few workers got their fingers wrapped!!



General Discussion / Early 1968 smog pump
« on: September 19, 2016, 09:55:39 PM »
Again, not mine, but because not a lot of Camaro guys frequent the Corvette sites, I thought I'd post it here in case you have a 1968  L6, 327, or 350 engine and are looking for a smog pump.

THIS ONE (scroll down to "pump #4) is dated October 17th, 1967 and he only wants $30 plus shipping. It's frozen, but they can be repaired fairly cheaply.


General Discussion / Seems like a pretty good price
« on: September 17, 2016, 07:17:15 PM »
Not mine, but I asked what the date was on the motor and the seller said it was 10-68, so anyone with an early to mid 69 might want to check it out.



Maintenance / Chem-Dip is crap
« on: August 22, 2016, 11:04:52 PM »
20 years ago I used to buy the gallon can of Chem-Dip to clean my carbs for rebuilding. It was great stuff.

I read a lot of reviews today and they all said that Chem-Dip is now garbage. Apparently, because of the freekin' EPA regulations (thanks again big government), it's no longer the same formula it was years ago.

So... What do you guys NOW use to clean carbs? And can I get it in the most liberal (make that useless) state in the union, California?


General Discussion / Not Camaro, but still really cool
« on: August 18, 2016, 03:12:06 PM »

I wonder what the torque specs are on those trim tag fasteners???



General Discussion / Let's go back in time!

The next time the CRG decides to make Tee shirts, I think it would be cool to do a racing jacket instead. I was leafing through some of my old J.C. Whitney catalogs last night and found this (see below) from 1969. I even made a mock-up of what it would look like with the CRG logo (second picture below).

And at only $9.95 plus shipping, it's a great deal!!! (Too bad those prices aren't valid anymore!)


On my LOCAL CRAIGSLIST, but I'm having trouble trying to decipher what he's trying to get accross!

1970 wanted to have super sport Camero LS motor Dart angle plug 202 fully heads
Fort Warner Superchick and transmission Schatar Shell Hearst for state v gate shifter centerline will centreline wheels
The car is taking apart it is a project car serious builders only Price is firm no negotiations

I think he has a 1970 SS with an LS engine and Dart 2.02 heads for sale, but some of it is gibberish.

Fort Warner Superchick = Some kind of Borg Warner transmission?? Super T-10 maybe?
Schatar Shell Hearst for state V gate = Hurst V-Gate shifter and a high stall torque converter??
centerline will centreline wheels = Centerline wheels I'm assuming


General Discussion / And yet ANOTHER misinformed ebay buyer
« on: March 14, 2016, 04:02:55 PM »
Some lucky guy just spent $60 for something he could have purchased from one of the MANY vendors for $15 (for TWO)!

Listed as a 3899716 DEFOGGER KNOB, you can see it's really nothing more than a beat up old 1967-1968 Camaro radio knob!

And by the way, when he gets it, he'll find it WON'T fit on the shaft of his defogger switch (trust me, I tried!!)
