2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: any TN. member's here and that have been to the elizabethton cruz in ? on: April 03, 2009, 11:07:59 PM
Say its not so!  We have a cabin up in Dennis Cove (Hampton Tn).  That cruise in was the ONLY thing happening in Elizabethon on a Saturday evening.  You could park your car and bring a lawn chair and meet some really nice folks.  Walk down to the ice cream shop and get a cone and you were good to go!  A few years back my brother who was on leave from the AF brought his Grand National, me with the Z.  Just really good memories.  One time while racing at Bristol I took Jerry M. up there and he really enjoyed himself.  He did get a little scared when I took him up the mountain to Dennis Cove (said he heard banjo music)!  Cheesy
3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Z's 40th Birthday this week on: December 14, 2008, 08:50:08 PM

The wife and me just realized that our Z's 40th birthday is coming up this week.  Is there any way we could pin down the day it was assembled?  The VN is 1234379N565085.  Thanks in advance.

69s are unique, having holes along the front of the top rail to mount the condenser.
Those holes were a running change, implemented in January 69, IIRC. My 01B car doesn' t have them.

My 12C car has them.

My 12C Norwood Z has the bracket.

What I like about the 4th edition is: 1) All photos are sharper, and some are even larger  2) New photos in the color photo gallery, I like the car owned by Gary Sommers, he drives it like he stole it! Wink  3) font is easier on the eyes to read 4) New information on the work order numbers scheduling codes 5) ZL-1 story has been added, there is still quite a few of them in the unknown status, you just never know where one could be hidding at.  Just a few of the changes I have noticed so far.

72 and 76s are the ticket for sea level or close to it.  6.5 power valves are what works best in the 302, just like John pointed out.  I will say that we also sometimes block the rear power valve. 

Gary Sommers 69 Z28 has been a test bed car for us and it runs in the mid 13s in 90 degree weather, granny shifting with street tires and through the mufflers.  I did a Stock Eliminator carb set up on this car.  With a good driver and traction this car would run in the mid 12s.  He was on the chassis dyno this summer and it made 350 hp at the rear wheels.  A good Stock Eliminator 302 engine will make 460-470hp at the flywheel.       

9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / No partial VIN on blocks on: May 13, 2007, 08:00:01 PM
What is the groups consensus on engines that do not appear to have the partial VIN stamped on the block?  I am starting to see a few of them advertised as orginal blocks that the factory must have "forgotten" to stamp.  If this was so wouldn't the transmission also be without the VIN?  Just asking the question.  Thanks.

A few years ago I was lucky enough to observe one of Jerry's engines on the Dyno.  It was amazing to see the horsepower (458) and the high RPM's (8100) the 302 was putting out.  I think they did over 18 runs that day I was there.  I have the data sheet of one of the pulls.  I only wish I had brought my video camera.   Angry

I sent mine to Gary and they came back PERFECT!  Exact rivets, correct color and loud! Grin

Check out the thread under General Discussion, 69 wheel well mouldings discontinued, It is mentioned where you will be able to get those rocker moldings. Wink

Thanks for taking the time to discuss the history of Buddy Holly to my high school class.  They now know the some of the roots of real rock and roll.  They kept on asking alot of good questions after your talk.  Plan on Becky and me treking back out to C. L. next year.  I sounds like it was a litter warmer last year when we were there.  Stay warm!

I don't think they will fix a 69 dash.
