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.
48  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:

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.

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.

52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Who would be interested in buying a replacement passenger seat cable? on: January 17, 2014, 09:09:37 PM
Hey guys,

I was wondering if there is a big enough need out there for replacement passenger seat cables.  These are the small cables that keep the seatback from hitting the dash when tilting it forward.  

In order to make these, I would have to have the items custom made and bulk ordered through my company.  These seat cables would be aircraft cable, coated in a similar grey color coating.  The color would not be exact, but as close as I can get with the material colors offered.  I can have them in either all black, for 67 and 68, or grey for 69.

I certainly don't want to go through the expense and trouble of all this if not enough people show an interest, but will gladly do it iif I can at least cover my initial costs.

If enough people tell me they would be interested in these, I could probably have these made and sold for about $15 each, more or less, depending again, on how many people would buy them.

Here is a photo of the prototype.  The holes in this one are slightly larger than OE, but my supplier said if I order a large enough quantity, he will make the holes in the ends the exact size we want.

So, let me know.  If I get enough of you guys to tell me you are interested, I will go ahead and do it.

Steve

I usually place the Camaros in the lineup in the order I receive them.  However, if you have a special month you would like to see your Camaro featured, let me know.  It could be your birth month, or the build date month, or even your wedding anniversary month, to show your bride how much you care, and surprise her with your Camaro featured on the same month you declared your undying love to her.

Submit any photos you like of anyone's car you like.  Just provide their name, so we all know whose car it is.

If you have any questions, please ask away.  You can send pics or ask questions to the email below.

Thanks,

Steve

55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Shoulder belts for 1967 Camaro SS convertible on: January 10, 2014, 04:27:31 PM
I have a convertible with shoulder belts.  What you should know is that there is no give to these belts like in newer cars.  You are literally strapped into the back of your seat, and cannot lean forward to check your mirrors fully, change your radio station, or adjust the heater controls, nothing.  I don't wear it for this reason.  It's like being strapped down like a criminal in an insane asylum.  So, if you do this, try to rig up something that would have a newer like spring setup seatbelt, so you don't restrict your movement so much.

Where are you located.  If you are in south Florida area, I will certainly donate my time to help.  I've been there and know how it feels.

Wow, I must have been getting a telekinetic message from you.  I submitted the home page pics for January at 11:06am this morning, and see that you posted your message above at 11:06am as well.

58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Are the reproduction wheel well moldings any good yet? on: December 29, 2013, 04:36:23 PM
hey guys,

Looking to replace a EO wheel well molding that was damaged.  I remember years ago trying to fit a reproduction set, and they were horrible.  I see them supposed GM approved ones for sale on ebay.  Are they any good?  How to they fit and compare to OE?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Camaro-69-Wheel-Opening-Molding-set-4pc-OE-GM-Restoration-Part-In-Stock-/150732564733?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Year%3A1969%7CModel%3ACamaro&hash=item23185c68fd&vxp=mtr#ht_219wt_1127

Thanks,

59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Need Driver Side Front Wheelwell Molding for 69 Camaro on: December 29, 2013, 04:18:45 PM
Hey guys,

I recently got my 69 back from the paint shop.  They did a really nice job, however, during the build, thry pre-fit the wheel well moldings, and messed one of them up.  What upsets me a little is the fact that I gave them a complete factory OE set in which three of them, including the front driver side, were still brand new in the GM packaging.  The guy who installed it was obviously unsure of where to drill the holes, and simply started drilling hole after hole, and even drilled several holes side by side and touching.  He then took snips to the top and instead of drilling holes, cut notches out where he could hopefully just loosen the upper bolts and slide the molding under them.  What makes it worse, is NOT one single hole is in the proper space.

To take a 40 somehting year of NOS trim piece still in the GM wrapper, and cut it up and ruin it makes cringe.  As most of you know, this part is not easily obtained.

Well, the owner agreed with me and says he will replace it.  Now, I have the job of trying to find one.  I doesn't have to be new, but a a nice used one will work as well.  If anyone has one or knows where to find one, and is willing to sell it, I would be forever in your debt.  I understand it won't be cheap, and am willing to spend the money.  The entire exterior is completely back together except for this one last trim piece, and I would love to get it done.  I plan to post a pic of it on the home page for February, is that is my birth month.  I am hoping the idiot that puts these photos in the monthly lineup will accept my photo and post it for that month.  I hear he can be a real jerk sometimes.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Steve
