If you guys would like to see your Camaro on the website homepage, just send a pic to me.  Every submission will get posted in the coming months.  I would like to get Christmas themed pics for next month if I can, or if you have a red or green Camaro, send a pic and your Camaro will be the representative Camaro for December. 

Thanks, and send pics to the following email.

It appears that Daren and Sam had lots of Camaros.


The Camaro in the photo above is obviously a big block with blue interior, and blue top cover.

Another 1967 without the blacked out tailpan, added bumper guards and now white interior and top cover.

Darren and Sam's neighbor across the street has a nice red 67 Camaro convertible.

In fact, all of the housewives in Bewitched drive classic Chevy muscle (Camaros, Corvettes, Chevelles, all convertibles of course)

And don't get me started on other Camaros in show business...


In the movie Transformers, I heard they were supposed to use a 69 Camaro as pre-Bumblebee, but they could not find the required number of 69 Camaros that were junked out and inexpensive, so they went with the oh so popular 75-76 POS Camaro.
Don't forget Danny's 69 Camaro convertible on the TV show Las Vegas
Drew Barrymores 69 pace car on the movie Charlie's Angels (that I got outbid on when it was on ebay, and now sits in a Gatlinburg TN car museum, with a VIN less than 50 away from my current pace car.
John Cusack's 68 Camaro in Better Off Dead
Tomboy...68 Camaro
Christine...67 Camaro
Burt Reyonlds 68 Camaro in Cop and a half - I last seen this at the Orlando Universal Studios sitting in their bone yard.  
Tuff Turf - 68 Camaro
Fast and Furious - 69 Camaro Yenko

And for a complete list....I just found this....

I would rather have a stock looking interior, and do minor changes here and there.  If the door panels fit decently or can be made to look okay, then I will go with them.  However, all I have heard is that none of the deluxe door panels seem to be worth a darn.  I am amazed that 45 years ago, we had the technology to make good fitting parts.  But today, with computers and precision cutting methods, etc., not a single reproduction part is even close to the quality expected.  How sad.

I was able to get a pair from a good friend.  My taillights now look so much better and now, on to the other items to be installed.  A huge thanks to everyone who responded, it was greatly appreciated.

52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1969 Camaro deluxe door panels - Quality? on: October 28, 2013, 10:34:30 PM
Hey guys,

I'm looking at possibly upgrading my 69 Camaro to deluxe door panels.  However, I hear that all of them fit horribly.  Even the Al Noch ones I found did not get good reviews.  Does anyone make a decent reproduction deluxe door panel for 69?  If not, I have a brand new pair of PUI complete assembled standard door panels new in the packaging that I will install instead.  If necessary, are there modifications that need to be done to the door to get them to fit?  Does one brand over another work better? What other issues are there I should look out for?

Thanks,

Steve

55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Where to find 69 Camaro taillight chrome trim? on: October 24, 2013, 07:31:16 PM
Hey guys,

I am looking for, but cannot find, the small vertical metal trim pieces for a 69 Camaro taillight.  These are about 2-3" long and there are two (2) of them on each taillight where they separate the sections of the taillight.  I only need two of them.  So, if anyone has any laying about and wants to sell them, or knows where they can be purchased, I would be indebted to you for all of eternity and would shout praises in your honor for this oh so wonderful help. 

Thanks,
Steve
56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Seatbelts from other vehicles adapted to Camaro? on: October 24, 2013, 03:08:01 PM
Not the factory setup for a 69.  I am looking to find if anyone has installed a shoulder belt setup from another vehicle, for example, from a second gen (1970 - 1981) Camaro or Firebird.  I would think that a second gen seatbelt with the retractor on the ceiling and the plastic cover would look nice, and not out of place, and work better than what they had in 69.  Not to mention, I can find a 2nd gen seatbelt setup easier and at a much better price.  And not just from another Camaro, but ANY vehicle of ANY year that someone has successfully installed.

In the end, I had to repull almost the entire stripe using my own tape and my car came out NICE.  I am sure this issue is not common, as Stencils & Stripes have been around quite a while and I have heard good things about them.  So, I have to chalk this up to an isolated incident, where there is some ultimate entity or force out there that has it in for me.  The number of "This almost never happens with our product/service" has been way to high to be just coincidence it seems to me.  I guess that's why car building is not for the faint of heart.  It is also why we can REALLY appreciate a when a Camaro is finished and the job comes out as good or better than hoped.  Non-car guys or guys who have never done any significant restoration work can NEVER understand what really goes into getting these things done and done right.   Only those that have traveled that road can truly appreciate the hardships of the journey and the reaching of that destination.

Anyway, I spoke to Ralph who asked for photos to be emailed to him.  He seemed to understand my situation, and will hopefull take care of it.  For me, a good company is all about the service.  Anyone can sell you something, but what makes a seller truly terrific, is what they do when problems occur.  If they do nothing to help, well, we have all been there.  But, if they step up and take ownership of the problem, and do whatever it takes to make things right, well, that is the action of a business that I will remain loyal to and gladly spread the word and recommend them to all that ask.  I Will keep you all posted. 

Anyway, the Camaro comes home tomorrow, (Friday 10/25), and from there the rest is up to me.  Now the real fun begins.

I an redoing the interior of my 69, and want to go with a plush type later model style carpet.  Where do I look to get this?  Also, looking to buy a nice matching carpet for the trunk and would really like to find someone who makes carpet molded to fit the trunk perfectly.

Thanks,

59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Z10 on: October 23, 2013, 03:35:15 PM
Now, I may be wrong here, but I am willing to bet this car was once a small block/automatic car.  First, the fact that the tunnel and pedals are for an automatic kinda back up this point.  If the tunnel was replaced or patched, then they did a darn nice job and I cannot see any seams that would indicate a patch put in place.  The hole on the tunnel is for an automatic as well.  Also, I have been tracking Z11's and Z10's for several years now and have a reasonable list going.  One thing I have noticed is that with the Z10's, they are built in lots of small blocks and big blocks, meaning that they did not build just one big block Z10 in the middle of a small block Z10 run and reverse.  In my list, I see several 350's being made, and then several 396's being made.  If this car were indeed a 396 car, it would be the only big block car made in the middle of a small block z10 production run.

Again, my list is not complete and comprenhensive, but if I go by the info I do have, than this car is either a small block car, or an anomoly. 

For the seller to advertise this car as a big block/manual trans car seems to be sketchy to me.  He advertises the engine and trans as "date coded" but cannot verify the partial VIN.  Without the drivetrain in place, no one can make this claim.  Having a date coded engine and trans does not mean the car is originally a big block car with manual transmission.  This car may very well have been a small block car with auto transmission.  The items that would indicate this car as a big block or a manual transmission car are somehow missing or in contradiciton.  The lack of the heater box, the pedals and trans tunnel for an automatic, etc.   

Also, according to the info I have, this car should have a black custom (comfortweave) interior, not white as provided with the car. 

Again, I may be wrong.  I can only go on what limited information I have.

Okay, so which is the faster car?  According to what I have read...the Z28 is has a biggern engine, is faster and is more expensive than the ZL1...The world no longer makes sense.

http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2013/03/2014-chevrolet-camaro-z28-faster-than-zl1.html

http://wot.motortrend.com/totd-2014-chevrolet-camaro-z28-or-zl1-which-would-you-pick-417027.html#axzz2iCKYSb00

I suppose the Z28 is a stripped down purely track car, whereas the ZL1 is an all out fast street/strip/touring car?  Am I wrong.

And for the record, please tell me the renderings for the 2016 prototype Camaro is not true....ewwwwww.
