587  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Need 67 Camaro Pic for September Homepage on: August 30, 2006, 02:12:40 PM
The first usuable 67 Camaro pic gets to show off their car for the entire month of September on the homepage.  Also, send in your Camaro pic of either 68 or 69 as well.  They will get posted in the upcoming months.  Also, for the month of December, I would like to post a pic of each year Camaro that is decorated for the holiday season.  I will select the best one of each year and that Camaro will be the special holiday homepage pic for the entire month of December.  So decorate your car.  It can be as simple as a wreath on the grill or get imaginative. 
Send your pics to:

sdkar@bellsouth.net

Thanks guys

588  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / What size wheels can I go with on a 69 Camaro? on: August 29, 2006, 12:50:17 AM
I am doing a pro-tour project and just about ready to order wheels.  I am thinking of 18" wheels.  How big of a tire can I fit on a 69 Camaro and still look cool and not TOO big.  Also, what  backspace/offset do I need to fit under a factory rear wheel well?

591  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Anyone ever used the brush on/spray on sound deadener. on: August 07, 2006, 09:22:45 PM
Okay, so this is not quite a Camaro subject.  But it is for my 69 project.  Has anyone used these spray on sound deadener to quiet the car.  The claim seems to be quite high.  Does this stuff actually work?  Or is it a waste of money?

Here is a link to the website selling the quiet sound stuff.

any opinions greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

592  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / VIN vs. build date...do these add up? on: July 15, 2006, 02:16:10 PM
Okay, I was just surfing around ebay for the heck of it looking at Pace Car stuff. 

I found one Pace Car that is in really rough shape but looks all original with a build date of 04C and a VIN of 627765
ebay # 230005425510

Another Pace Car had a build date of 03E and a VIN of 627047.
ebay # 110006584976

My Pace Car has a build date of 04C and a VIN of 636285.

If these numbers are all correct, then from the last few days in March until sometime in the 3rd week of April (over 3 weeks time), only 718 cars were built.  However sometime near the end of the 3rd week of April (within 7 days) 8520 cars were made.  This does not add up.  Any explanations?

I need a pair of the weatherstrip roofrails for a 69 Camaro.  These are the chrome pieces that the weatherstrip press into for the door glass.  If you have a set, let me know and how much.  Thanks.

595  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Your worst 1st generation Camaro fears - realized on: July 03, 2006, 07:58:00 AM
Morality aside, I don't believe that it would be illegal to attach a VIN to a new body.  You should look at the spirit of the law and not the technicality of it.  The law does not want re-VIN's to in order to prevent the theft and fraud of a stolen car and possible resale of it.  The law wants to avoid there being a victim (the guy whose car was taken and re-vin'd).  However, the rebody scenario described above includes a person legitimately buying a shell and taking a VIN from a car he owns and installing it.  There is NO victim.  Even if the VIN laws are violated, I would be surprised if 1.) a cop actually found out about this.  How would he?  2.)a cop, upon finding out, who would actually file a formal charge with the state attorney's office, and 3.) the state attorney actually moving forward with the charge and not dropping the charge (no file).  There are way too many actual vehicle thefts that most legal systems can barely deal with them let alone this victimless crime.  No harm no foul.  Putting together a dynacorn body without a donor VIN merely means you have to apply for a VIN from the motor vehicle in your state as you would a kit car. 

A good question would be if I built a dynacorn body and had not yet installed a VIN on it, would it be or at what point would this be grand theft auto or simply theft of property?  Hmmmm.

Just putting in my 2 cents.
596  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Vintage Air or Classic Auto Air? on: May 21, 2006, 08:53:33 PM
Up until recently, I was always under the impression I was gonna go with Vintage Air for my 69 Camaro Pro-Tour.  However, upon talking with some guys at a local car show, I was told that the company, Classic Auto Air, out of Tampa Florida, was a much better system.  I see that with Vintage Air, I may have to buy the adaptor bracket from Detroit Speed, so that the unit fits properly.  Has anyone used either of these systems?  What are the opinions of either of them?  What do I do with the firewall...smooth it myself or does the kit account for this?  Finally, what is the performance like for either of these units.  This car will be my daily driver and the AC needs to perform like a new car as I live in Florida and hate to sweat.  Any opinions on your experiences, both on the installation itself and the finished item, is greatly appreciated. 

Thanks,

Steve

597  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Whats the largest wheel tire combo for 69 Camaro? on: May 18, 2006, 10:25:11 PM
Okay...so I'm playing 20 questions.  I am trying to figure out what the largest tire and rim combo for a 69 Camaro Pro tour.  I have stock wheel wells front and rear with 2" dropped spindles in the front.  I am wondering if I should stick with a 17" wheel or can I fit an 18" wheel?  What is the biggest I should go without looking ridiculous.  I just want a tough stance but not oversized.  Should I go larger in the rear or stay the same size all the way round?  What do you guys think?  If anyone has pics of their car with certain size wheels that you think look cool, can you possibly email them to me? 

Thanks,

Steve

599  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Recommended Rear End Ratio... on: May 17, 2006, 06:49:31 PM
502 Chevrolet Crate motor 502hp and 567 ft. lbs. torque.    The transmission ratios are as follows:  3.27:1, 1.98:1, 1.34:1, 1:1, and 0.68:1.



600  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Recommended Rear End Ratio... on: May 17, 2006, 01:53:06 PM
Okay, I am up in the air on a decision and looking for a consensus of what you guys think.  I have a 69 Camaro that is going to get a 502 Crate Motor, A Tremec tko 600 5 speed manual transmission and a Ford 9" Rear.  I am going with the Martz Rally and Road Race front subframe and a TCI 4 link setup in the back.  I have been given a choice of a rear end ratio.  Well, I have no clue at all what to tell them.  This car is going to be a daily driver and not raced.  I want something that leaves the line quickly bt will cruise nicely at 80-90mph down the highway.  I have been told anywhere from a 3:40 rear up to a 4:11.  I don't want too radical, but I don't want a dog either.  I am going to go with the majority of what you guys say.  So, you all get to help me build my car.  Tell me what you think and if so, why. 

Thanks for the help.
