Hey Gary, I had a 57 Nomad back in the 70's. 327/4 spd Muncie 488's. What a beast to drive. Always dreamed of another shoebox, but now I don't think it's going to happen. Still in possession of a Hurst Competition Plus shifter I bought in 1973 that was in the Nomad. Couldn't part with it. I'm thinking it may be time to part with it. Amazing what they cost these days. The entire shifter including linkage rods, etc, cost me $62.50 back then. Now they are so expensive, they have to sell them in halves: shifter, and then rod kit.

Mine's got power steering with a deep groove pulley on the pump.

I believe that John Z stated in an earlier discussion on 302 engines, that certain machining processes required for the 302 were only done at Flint. Might have been head machining? All big blocks were done at Tonawanda, so CE blocks would have to come from there.

If your business goes "bankrupt"  you are being "bailed out" depending on how you file you will only be responsible for a portion or none of your incurred debt and in some cases can continue to operate your business. Who pays for that? other consumers, business owners and tax payers.

Huh?? If I'm a sole proprietor I'm responsible for my debt until all my assets (including personal) are gone. Any debt left at that point will be be eaten by my creditors , that's true. My creditors took that risk when they decided to do business with me. The government and the taxpayers have no involvement in the process, whatsoever. In GM's case there were a large group of credits who got nothing, called stockholders. Bondholders took a bath as well. "Special" considerations were given the unions, however. Wonder why that was the case?

 Think not. Oh and GM would be out of business today if not for a bail out instituted your elected politicians.

Peace Smiley

As far as I'm concerned, GM should have went out. If my business goes bankrupt, who bails me out? Nobody. Oh, that's right, I'm not one of the "special" people who get bailed out by the taxpayer. (nor do I wish or expect to be) Politicians didn't ante up the bail out funds. They took funds from me, and millions of other tax payers.

Didn't have a clue, other than the Corvette part. I guess it must be that the Corvettes get most of the attention, it never occurred to me that other car were being built in St Louis as well.

As far as Muncie 4 speeds in Impalas, I bought one early in the 70's from a guy and it came out of an Impala with a 396, as I recall. It was either a 66 or 67 model.
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Muncie 3925660 on: February 25, 2014, 09:37:18 AM
I thought St Louis was the Corvette assembly plant?

That thing would probably eat that pickup truck if it gets too close!

I agree with Mark. If the ZL1 is all about the aluminum 427, and the original motor is gone, I don't feel what's left is all that special. Certainly not 6 figures special. Same with a Z without the 302. To me, it's about what it is, not what it was.

Looks like Stahl Headers is closing up shop, and his stuff is for sale?  Is Jere retiring?
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New auto factory in Germany.. Amazing video .. :) on: February 03, 2014, 04:40:02 PM
Saw a video somewhere of a BMW production plant showing raw stampings coming from presses to finished BMW's rolling into the shipping Trailers. I don't think I counted 20 humans involved in the whole process. Watching robots install the windshield sealant to the windshield, and then installing the windshield was amazing. Painting robots actually looked like humans in the video. They opened and closed the doors  to paint the interior sheet metal. I'm assuming American Car plants are much the same these days as well.

I do not believe that Drivers dash should be wood grain. Or else so should the steering wheel center. I think the wheel is correct.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original 69 Z/28 chrome shifter ball? on: January 28, 2014, 02:57:41 PM
Here's mine. Weighed in at 3.9 ounces. Maybe it weighed 4 ounces when it had chrome originally?
