Sent my 68 dash to Al Knoch in 2013 and it turned out great. Cost $185 plus shipping. Turn around was pretty quick too.

My original 69 is like the AIM. It contacts the fork at a slight angle.

American Cushion Industries made mine. I thought they were nice.

Hey Joe, I got new foam from Legendary when we did our front seats and they were really nice. Expensive though. I'll see if I still have the box with a brand name on it.

Just looked at mine on the 68. Its installed like the AIM and it contacts the fork at an angle. Not sure if its right but its been working hard for 5 years. I can't remember why I didn't install it from the other side (straight). I'll check my original 69 later to see if its the same.

I don't know Ed but I would guess his decision is not about quitting, its about distancing himself from dumb stuff or undue stress. Now, its up to us to eliminate those things and await his return. As a user and a fan of this site I realize the CRG and its core owe me nothing. I also realize the opinions handed out on this site carry a lot of weight in the collector car world and can have a lasting impact on how a car or part is perceived, so if I ask... I must it or not.
Thanks CRG. Thanks to those who wrote and sold books also. Wish I had more to contribute.

Great looking car George!
 Sorry I missed everyone in person, I was only able to be there Saturday morning until it rained.

I hate to stay off topic but is the big block 4 blade fan larger or have wider blades than the small block fan? I have one from a 65 Impala and it has wider blades. Curious.

I need some smog stuff rebuilt too! Thanks!

I was planning to be here in Frederick both Friday and Saturday with two cars. May only make it one day now...other things have come up. If I can only bring one car now, I'll have to decide which.

Where did the HEI distributor come from?
How old are the plugs?

Its easy to get excited about something when its right in front of you and you have an opportunity. But, it takes some discipline to walk away when it doesn't make sense. Good for you. I like that color combo too.

Wow! Looks real good.

Using reproduction parts, I tried weatherstrip adhesive and it did not hold for long. I ended up using a little JB weld.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Zeroing in on X code start up on: May 29, 2014, 06:43:48 PM
Here is a little timeline for a special ordered Camaro that ended up with a 12B on the trim tag. VIN 5583XX   No X code.

I believe the car was ordered somewhere around Friday November 08, 1968 because that is the Date on the lien. Also, I'm pretty sure the purchaser just got home from the Navy on the 6th.

The date on the MSO (Manufacturer Certificate of Origin) is Thursday December 12, 1968. This the date that ownership of the car was transferred from Norwood(GM) to the dealer. I have to assume that this date is very close to, if not the same as, the shipping date that would appear on the NCRS document....waiting to hear from other members since this car's info is currently not available.

I believe this is an early 12B car because I have seen a 12A tag on a VIN 558080. That's around 250 cars.
It may be safe to say my car began production early Monday December 09, 1968, spent the next four days on the line, rolled out the back door Thursday afternoon.

The Application for Title is dated Wednesday December 18, 1968. I believe this the day the owner took delivery.

The original title is dated Friday December 20, 1968.

Has anyone been able to compare the official production date to the MSO date yet?
