16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Are There Any "Off Limit" Areas in Your Restoration? on: February 26, 2014, 05:18:55 AM
OFF LIMIT for me is big dollar date correct factory parts

Rich, I'm on a similar track with my 307 PG. It will never be a big dollar collector car, it doesn't make sense to spend stupid money for a rare date correct but still not original part. I am mildly upgrading as I go. It will be years before sunlight sees my car again, but it will have upgrades for safety and reliability. Looks will be kept stockish, patch panels will be used where possible instead of full panels, some may be Pontiac (not NOS) I like the idea of the Trans Am spoiler and the hood tach, might be interested in an l88 hood. The missing vinyl top will be replaced, I also plan on the dx1 stripe, sound will be modern but discreet, and less than a bazillion watts.  For now it sits in the garage, some of it in boxes. The kids, my wife, and my school are higher priority for both my time and money. Yep, almost 60, back in school, starting over again. I still have my 69 Camry, and when money and time allow, I will continue to get things done on it until I drop, or I drive it. Bought it in the 90's, still haven't driven it. Maybe I'll actually meet some of you at the Charlotte AutoFair in April. Hoping I can make at least one day of it, and add a little to my project.

Might try putting them in the freezer for a bit before you return them. Might or might not shrink them enough to go in easy. Good luck either way.

Would love to see what they produce for a Camaro.

Saw that part of the show. They said he could order options, color etc, but it would be the first retail 2014 Camaro.

If you have a paper type in line filter, it could have collapsed.

sure did, and in the states that salt in winter, the vega didn't last long. Most I remember were rusted through the front fenders within a few years off the lot.

And if you actually read to the end of the "bad press" the corvair got, I think it was in the last paragraph or so of the corvair segment of Unsafe At Any Speed by Ralph Nader, he concluded that with the improvements made during production the corvair at that was the best handling, performing car in it's class or price range anywhere. Some of the turbo versions were incredible.

A friend of mine back in the day had a wagon with the olds 215 aluminum v8. Not a rocket, but mostly Vega and had some go to it. Conversion kits were available at local speed shops, and the 215s were about $100. at the local scrap yard.

My 307 is a glide, and deep in the garage, but if you want I will try to get a peek at the axle code. Might take a bit of time but I'm willing.

Paint only yes, maybe there is a green vert with a red interior.  Strange combos did happen. MERRY CHRISTMAS to all.
