16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Are 71 Cutlass front parking lights the same as 69 Camaro? on: June 03, 2014, 04:14:29 PM
The bases are the exact same.  The lenses look similar, but  the Cutlass has a larger "brow", and would stick out.  However, the bases will work.
17  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Do they make clear AC/Heater Control lenses without lettering? on: June 03, 2014, 04:12:39 PM
I am wondering if it is possible to get an AC/heater control lens with no lettering at all.  I doubt it, but figured I would ask and see if maybe there is a way to get one.  I mean, just grab the lens BEFORE it goes to the lettering phase of the process and ship it out.  The reason is for my 69, I had custom-made brushed stainless plates made and have installed them where you would typically see the wood grain at the headlight/wiper section, and the radio plate.  I also had the same brushed silver plate made to fit the AC control, and had custom lettering etched into it.  I then painted the metal dash at the ashtray and glovebox area the same metallic pearl silver as the outside of my car, and installed the "Oh Crap" handle over a custome black anodized plate with the "Camaro" lettering etched.  It looks awesome. 

However, the AC control without a clear lens, does not get any lighting at night, and I would like to install a lens over it for the lighting effect.  However, they all have lettering and my custom etched lettering looks much nicer.  So, if amyone knows of a way to find an unlettered AC control lens, I would be thrilled.  A long shot, but thought I would ask.

Thanks,

Steve

My sincerest thanks to Darrell Cook for the speedo.  It is exactly what I needed, and is already installed and works great.  THANK YOU.  : )

Just a regular good old fashioned 120 mph speedo is perfect.  No frills necessary.

Hey guys,

I wanted to start here and see if anyone has an old factory 120mph speedo for a 69 sitting around that no longer needs it and wants to turn it into come money.  If so, I would be interested in buying it.  Email to let me know what you feel is a fair price, and condition.

Thanks,
Steve

I have a 69 Pace Car with a build date about a week earlier and a VIN about 2,000 earlier.  My partial VIN is stamped by the oil pad as well, and it is not even remotely as clear as the one on this vehicle.  Futhermore, it has a 9 in front of the N.  Just sayin.

Kurt,

From what I understand, the pics were received in time by the person who posts the pics for the homepage.  However, due to the deviation from what has been the standard monthly photo submission, he was unsure if he should post them and chose to wait for your approval first.  I have been submitting photos within this same time-frame manner for over ten years, with no problems until now.  I was not made aware of this added layer of beaurcracy and the need of a reveiw of the submissions prior to their being posted, as again, it has never been an issue before now.  From now on, I will make an effort to submit time-sensative photos submissions in a more timely manner.   

If you would like to discuss this further, I can only suggest that the open forum may not be the best place to address this matter.

See guys, the Camaros on the home page do not have to be perfect.  They simply have to be a Camaro.  Please, send me your pics and I promise you too will one day see it on the home page.  I have been doing this for over ten years now, and I have made sure that EVERY single Camaro pic sent to me gets posted (as long as the pic is usable and sent in proper jpg format).  So, don't delay, and send me your pic and get it in the line up so you too will see in on the website homepage.

Send to:

sdkar@bellsouth.net.

It should be easy and just hook up in there with the existing parts and the new pedal.  If you need any of the parts to do this, let me know, as I removed my automatic brake pedal and installed a clutch one.

I agree they must handle horribly...but as the saying by Fernando goes...it is better to look good than to drive good.  If you like, here is a video of one of the Camaros like this that has the spinner wheels that don't spin, and as the car is driving down the road, it looks like it is being dragged.  Kinda gives a new meaning to "drag Camaro".

Hey guys, I submitted pics for April Fools day, but they didn't get posted for some reason.  Not too sure why, but I promise, I sent them in.  Here they are.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Coming Soon:Home page pics w/ stories/info/anything the owner wants to say on: February 19, 2014, 12:14:11 PM
Hey guys,

I would like to see if I can get enough response to try something new here at CRG.  I am sure by now, everyone sees the monthly home page pics when visiting the site.  Are any of you curious about that specific Camaro and would just love to click on it and get a couple other photos of it, along with great information and interesting stories about how they were found, the reason why the current owner bought it, what he or she went through to get it looking the way it does...and on and on?  I know I do.  As we all know, there is almost always a tale to tell about our Camaros, and other Camaro lovers may just want to hear about it.  At the very least, I am sure we would all like to know about the engine, the interior, the body, etc.  Does it still have the original motor or not?  What mods have been done to it?  Are there any cool options? and on and on. 

So, if you would like to not only show off your cool Camaro on the home page, but would like the world to know more about it, send in your pic and a one page story about it.  Include info about the drivetrain, the interior and cool options.  Show off the awesome knowledge you learned about your car from CRG and tell us about it.  Tell us about its history, or anything you think would be cool.  Send in another pic or two or three to showoff your engine compartment, the interior, or any cool feature that you are proud of.  Heck, send in a photo when the car was all apart, and a complete basket case, when you were sure you would never finish it.  I am sure many of us can relate to that. 

And if you have recently sent in a photo of your Camaro and it has not been posted yet, it is in the lineup.  Send me any info about your Camaro and I can include that with your pic.

On a side note, if you are Darrell Cook, Kevin Devine, or David Renshaw, your Camaros are slotted for March, and if you can send me a write up about your Camaro, we still have time to include it.

Thanks guys,

Send your pics AND STORIES to:

sdkar@bellsouth.net

28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How long are you guys running your radials tires on: January 31, 2014, 12:12:47 AM
I don't know if what I am doing is the proper thing to do, but I have a set of Firestone Indy 500 radial tires on my pace car since 2003.  My car has been driven about 6-7K miles since these were installed new, and they have been rotated and balance to make sure wear is perfectly even.  I have driven on several far away trips of a couple hundred miles away as well as local, and have no problems.  I wash and clean the tires after almost every outing or two, and the white lettering is still pretty white. 

I see no signs of cracking, and they still give a good ride.  These tread on these tires is not even close to looking worn and so, I will continue to drive on them until I see or feel a problem.  I still have the 10+ year old matching spare tire in the trunk, and see no reason this would need to be replaced as well.  If it helps, my car is garage kept, so the tires see no weather unless being driven.

29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Who would be interested in buying a replacement passenger seat cable? on: January 22, 2014, 05:13:18 PM
Okay, it looks like the cables will be a go. 

Is there anyone out there that has the washer for the cable that can lend it to me to get that reproduced as well?

I need it for about a month to get the die made and get these redone.  If you can loan me your washer, I will send it back to you, unharmed, along with a cable (your color choice) and a brand new washer as well. 

If you can help with this, email me and we can make the arrangments.
