I too would like to find the best possible replacement (stock type) pistons for my 350/300. I want to keep the weight the same and maintain the compression ratio.

I payed $2600 for coupe quarters last year. They were still in the boxes.

Maryland keeps all records until car leaves the state. I'm pretty sure they discard them once the car gets titled in another state.
I was able to get copies of all previous titles and even the certificate of origin for my 69, which led me to the original owner. I also have a friend in law enforcement who assisted me.

Aaron, do you think a close ratio trans could help your driveability?

215  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Do You Really "Feel" the Road Better With Manual? on: August 07, 2006, 10:51:46 PM
I have manual steering in both my 68 and 69 Camaros. I guess I can feel the road better but it might just be me anticipating (paying more attention to) upcoming turns because of the effort. Its no wonder the steering wheels crack. The 68's manual drum brakes don't bother me much. I would rather have power steering in both but the 69 is sort of unique without it, having a/c... and a cracked steering wheel. Smiley

Would a 69 SS equipped with 14"x 7" wheels come with a 14"x6" spare wheel? What color would the spare wheel be?

lcmc,
Could you post some more of the info on your car? options? I have a SS350 muncie 3speed also and I'd like to compare. Also, when you take the 3speed out I'd be interested in buying it if you would sell it. Wink

I am a big fan of all this retro design, the Mustang is HOT, the Challenger concept is cool but, what are they going to do with these cars 3, 5, 10 years down the road when they are due for redesign? I guess thats what appeals to me about the Camaro concept is, its not a total retro, it has an agressive modern stance, and it has neccessary first gen cues. Now, if GM can make the Camaro a functional, practical, affordable-to-own-and-operate performer, may we have a winner? We definitly don't need another SSR!
Think, If Toyota all of a sudden built a 2-door V-8 rear drive sedan with 300-400 hp and manual trans, would people buy it? Why?
Please don't start a import trashing session, thats not why I wrote this.

I hope it will be affordable for the working class.
A R/S (hidden headlight) grille would be nice as an option also.

There is some info and pictures of that "bolt on head package" in the book "Camaro untold secrets" by Wayne Guinn. Looks surprisingly similar to the SB2 (Small Block 2) head design used in NASCAR racing today.

221  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Brake Fluid Leak on: January 05, 2006, 10:52:17 PM
A very very small leak usually won't spill a bunch more fluid under normal braking pressure. If the leak was large enough to make instant drops/puddles, the brake pedal would rapidly drop to the floor.
-Hope you fixed the leak!
Good luck

222  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: 69 Z/28 Front disc brake upgrade on: January 05, 2006, 10:28:37 PM
Remanufactured calipers (single piston) should be cheap and available at a local parts store, with or without pads.

good luck.

The Muncie 3-speed cable runs the same as the 4-speed, inboard from the steering column.

Don,
My carpet is gold. Its faded, but its gold. The seat belts, window crank knobs and console are all gold. Its awesome!
The console is neat because it is white plastic painted or dyed gold.
Your car looks nice. What color is the paint?

My 69 3-speed has a nice "stamped" clean cut rectangle hole with radiused corners. It uses a small bellows boot with a rectangle retainer surrounding a flat-stick muncie shifter.
