Jerry,

Thatnks for the info, I was thinking more of the heat shield effect from coating the underside of the intake. Not a great important concern, just kind of wondering.

Thanks again,

Tom

Jerry,

Would ceramic be any better? (Iron or aluminum) I'm not thing so much of appearance, as keeping the intake temp down.


Thanks,

Tom

I do not trust ANY insurance company. I have had prolonged dealings on more than one occasion after being hit (last time a kid ran a light). This was needed in order to receive fair payment - enough to repair the damage. I would lean toward specialty insurance for collector cars. Mine is not yet on the road. I would also READ THE POLICY. No matter what your agent tells you, decisions are based on the actual policy as written.

Or you could stick with Canadian sold cars where documentation is available.

One reason to change the vin would be to recreate a better car that has been totaled. Like a Z from a 6 cyl, etc. Another would be to register a stolen car.

You may be able to read the partial through the cowl. After all these years lots of thing may have happened.

Good luck

Check to see if the partial vin matches the full vin. More info here: http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#PartialVIN

Good luck,

Tom

My 69 307 PG has the console, with floor shift. I believe it to be original.

I seem to recall reading that BB mounts positioned the motor farther forward in the bay than the SB, And 6 mounts farther back.

Ed, Are you aware of an aftermarket version? Did you swap the entire seat, or did it replace the manual mechanism?

I believe the 2004r 4 speed overdrive auto also fits the bill as any easy to do, easy to undo swap, and may be even more street friendly.

Sounds like something that shouldn't be to hard to put together at the Nationals in Carlisle this June. Should be plenty of cars, cameras, and experts present.

Regrettably, there is no original paperwork that can not be duplicated reasonably well with today’s technology. Paper can be aged to appear older. Old paper can be cleaned and reused for unintended purposes. There have been numerous check scams where the amount was changed. People have 'cleaned' the paper from one dollar bills to print counterfeit 100's. I am glad the CRG has, and does not share some of this information, but will examine what we have. This protects all of us. I wish I had original documentation, protecto plate, etc. I also wish I had a more valuable 69 than my 307 glide. I don't have a Z, or a COPO, or an RS, or an SS, and I will not change it into one. What I will do is continue to keep it somewhat original, and when I do swap in a newer part, I will hang on to the original in case I ever decide to go back.

Thanks CRG!

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year

Maybe it has something to with all those years / miles being driven without a passenger causing springs on the left to sag a little more than the springs on the right....

With all the rust issues what can I do during restoration to minimize rust if I decide to go vinyl. I do not have the luxury of garage space, and I live next to wetlands less than a foot above sea level (constant humidity even in winter).

Thanks,
Tom
