This tragedy has touch everyone to certain degree. It really hit home for me because I had worked closely with Professor Kevin Granata. Our company provided many of his research tools. A brilliant researcher in the biomechanics field.  Sad , very sad....

No big blocks with A/C in 67.

That tire was made in 69. BTW they do not reproduce these F 70 14 Tiger Paws. What is amazing about this tire is that the don't seem to  dry rot. They wore out very quickly, not a very high mileage tire, even for standards back then.

I have what I think is an original spare in my pace car.  It is a Uniroyal Tiger Paw.  Could this be.  Was that another tire option for 69?

Bill, Uniroroyal was indeed another supplier. I know they were used from 69 to at least 72, however the small raised script was unique for each year. Let me know what the script states such as  "Rayon Dynacor" or Rayon Dynacor Nylon " or Dynacor Rayon Fiberglass". Attached is a link to my survivor car with the original Uniroyal tires, scroll down the thread and you'll see where I attached a pic of the tires.

I have purchased both systems from them. The Transverse system is quite a bit cheaper, and sounds better (my opinion). I have a gardner chambered system that was on my Z for about twenty miles of use. Too loud for my taste but certainly has the wow factor. My yenko has their transverse system, and is very quiet. My L34 has their chambered and it sound very nice, if you like the glasspacks. I have an orig GM chambered system that I plan to install on the L34. It should be interesting to compare the GM to the Gardner.

Thats the one... John, wow what a well preserved car, the shot of the underside of the package tray area is outstanding.
442  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Rear deffogger on: March 07, 2007, 08:37:29 PM
The grill is incorrect,and from what I can see so is the fan assembly. 
443  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Chambered exhaust on: March 05, 2007, 12:10:58 PM
To my ear, the Z's are louder than big blocks in general. There are many variable that contribute, such as compression, chamber and exhaust manifold configuration and camshaft profiles.
444  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: blackout rear tailpan on: March 04, 2007, 02:55:20 PM
To answer the second part of your question, regarding exceptions there were a few. The actual 1967 Indy track BB pace cars did not have the blacked out tail panels, however most did including C1 and 01 coded cars. Also GM documents states exceptions for a few dark colors, but I have examined several orig paint cars with the panels blacked out. For instance my survivor rs/ss L78 tahoe turqouis  car was blacked out which is contrary to GM docs. In 1969 BB Z10's and Z11"s did not get blacked out tail panels. Again dark colors such as burnished brown were supposed to be excluded, but I have examined a few orig paint cars and they were painted black.
445  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: blackout rear tailpan on: March 04, 2007, 12:57:21 PM
Yes BB only.
446  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 Pace cars on: February 28, 2007, 11:48:48 AM
I believe that keeping it titeld in Chevrolet Motor Division is absolutely great...it adds to its provenance. My specialty insurance allows me to insure cars that are not titled/registered, so I see no problem.  
447  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 Pace cars on: February 27, 2007, 10:24:18 PM
Lets stick to the #3 car we were discussing, rather than make it too confusing , unless thats your intent. Since you only seem to agree/ understand Kurts statement, this is what you agreed with previously when Kurt stated it. Then disputed it when I stated it.

 "There was a pacer that at the event that was a 4K L78. This is an 04D car and is the car that Jeff is referring to. So far, it's the only IPC that's been found that has been a 4K car. Since it was a regular car (regular here meaning it was not one of the pacers)"

It was a regular pace car NOT a car that was prepped or paced the event, therefore it was NOT the #3 pace car.
448  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 Pace cars on: February 27, 2007, 10:14:57 PM
Sorry, I pasted too much of your statement. Let try this:

Also you now agree that the statement you made " The first and only Real 4K pacecar is the #3 car Period." is not true.
449  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 Pace cars on: February 27, 2007, 09:55:17 PM
I was referring to Kurts definition of regular, which you agreed with previously. "(regular here meaning it was not one of the pacers)"


Also you now agree that the statement you made " So if Chevrolet didn't want it to be a L78, why do you think it should be?
The first and only Real 4K pacecar is the #3 car Period." is not true.
450  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 Pace cars on: February 27, 2007, 09:43:50 PM
Thanks for clearing that up Kurt. And just to clarify it a bit further this 4K car was NOT the #3 pace car, rather just a regular festival car.
