I think it's advertised as being the first SS built in Calif. One thing for sure, Chevrolet sold a boatload of Camaros because of this car. But it took 40 years for Hotrod to admit they FAKED all the time slips in the quarter mile. The "396" was actually a built 427.

Sorry Lakeholme, I missed the other thread. So that makes it even worse if this was a repeat. I'd think they would have corrected the bad info before they reaired it. If we carry a DVD of this episode onto an AACA field will the judges accpet it?  Or would they even know it's wrong? NAW!!

Two Gays Garage on Speed just had a segment on an "original" 1967 Camaro RS SS 327. WTF? And they mentioned that big blocks didn't come out until '69.  I know both of these guys are car oriented, why wouldn't they do JUST a little research before making themselves look stupid on Nat'l TV?

Thanks John Z, I missed that part. Was he was selling it for the owner? Why else would he have been on stage?

Can someone explain what really happened with the green ZL-1 of Reggie Jackson's? After hawking the car on stage didn't he climb down and bid on the car? It also appeared as though the back bidder walked away after seeing who he was bidding against. SO, who actually bought the car? I don't think they showed anyone signing for it.  I think I remember this car from a few years ago at around $800,000, is that right? And what's up with "rebodying" cars now? At least the Yenco Nova was rebodied, sounds like a clone to me. I have a VW I'd like to rebody as a Porsche.
306  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: From Chevrolet.com, The first TV commercial for the all new '67 Camaro on: January 07, 2009, 09:13:47 AM
I'm sure it was shown on Bonanza like the other Chevrolet commercials but I don't remember it. I fell in love with the Camaro reading the HotRod articles on the first SS, Vic Edelbrock's red coupe. It took 40 years for Hot Rod to admit that ALL the data at the drag strip was a lie. The 396 engine used was actually a 427. I wonder how many cars were sold because of the lie? Thanks for the link.

That's a pretty impressive list of inductees!! Thanks for your time here.

How old is the gas in the gas tank ?
Bingo! That's what I was thinking, I've had gas smell like crap in just a few weeks.

But they unbolt, could have been changed. What about the other stuff?
310  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Royal Plum..?? on: November 11, 2008, 04:28:47 PM
3/8 fuel line too, instead of 5/16, right?
311  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Royal Plum..?? on: November 10, 2008, 08:07:37 PM
There are other tell tales of a BB. Doesn't the speedo cable exit the firewall a differant place then SB? And the front springs if they still have their code? Front A-arms? Rear springs? A plum BB would be great in my book.

Not trying to step on toes, but yes the Gettysburg meet is a National event. If you look on AACA website it is the Eastern Spring meet, just like Hershey is the Eastern FALL meet. Rumor is trailer parking is going to be tight, so if you know someone closeby that you could park a trailer it may be easier.
313  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hershey on: October 22, 2008, 04:04:48 PM
Camaro Billy, that's about the best explanation of an introduction to AACA that I have ever read. Sure am sorry I didn't get to see you and your car, the show day goes TOO fast. Next Hershey's only about 49 weeks away.
314  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hershey on: October 03, 2008, 03:39:20 PM
I'll look for you Sat.  I'm in class 17A at the other end of the field, but I always go for a walk.
315  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hershey on: October 02, 2008, 05:58:05 PM
Almost forgot, make sure you see the 3 turbine Firebirds at the AACA museum. And GM and the other Co. are bringing special displays for the Orange field. The HArley Earl Le Sabre and the '02 Cadillac believed to be the first Caddy ever built will be in the good display. The other guys will have a Model T birthday party. McGuire's and other manufacturers will also be set up for the first time.
