301  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Radiator Paint Chipping Off on: April 28, 2009, 06:35:06 PM
I have never seen or heard of a galvanized radiator. Originals were brass and copper. Most new ones are aluminum and plastic. If your radiator was worked on by a radiator shop their paint quality is really poor, it's thinned with napthaline sp? Your question of stripping and useing a good quality paint should fix the rpoblem.

I didn't ask what, but what do they do for a title? In PA. it should get a reconstructed title as if it were a kitcar. That would also mean an ugly blue serial number plaque on the firewall.

Was anyone at Carlisle? And did anyone see the brand new red '69 COPO in the Armo display? It was a complete brand new car, can be "ordered" with any options. What did you think of it?

If it had white stripes, as it should have, you would have found eveidence of overspray SOMEWHERE. I still vote no stripes, let the experts at the shows figure it out. Was the orange the truck color?

If the orange you took off was the original paint and there was no evidence of stripes that's how I would do it.

Number #12 was for sale recently. I'd like to see pics of the whole number 1 car. Great find!

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!!
309  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 2 Guys Garage, why bother? on: March 22, 2009, 08:29:42 AM
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?
310  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Barrett Jackson on: January 19, 2009, 04:35:59 PM
Thanks John Z, I missed that part. Was he was selling it for the owner? Why else would he have been on stage?
311  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Barrett Jackson on: January 19, 2009, 09:26:12 AM
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.
312  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?
