Here's a pic of evaporator from 1967 RS/SS 350 Camaro for any interested.

I have also seen the article on the burgundy Z with red stripes; Didn't appeal to me.

I purchased my 69 Z/28 in 1982 for $6200. That was steep at the time, and the only reason I could afford it then was that I was single, and had made some money traveling with my job. Even at that, I never considered it an investment. I am sure that many at that time thought it was an ill advised use of my money, but I loved the car and especially the 302, so I went for what I wanted. Now I look like a financial guru which I am not. The difference between me and others of that time, was that I took the risk, while others I knew always talked about wanting a car like mine, but when it came to putting their money where their mouth was just talk. I think that if  these cars are a dream for someone, they should go for it if they can (obviously not a possibility for everyone)

576  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Won't start when the starter gets hot. on: May 04, 2007, 10:34:01 AM
I once had this  problem with starter where it would do nothing when everything was hot, but worked fine at cold start ups. Seems it had internal wiring with insulation that was not what it should be, and when hot, wires would expand, cross and short. When it cooled off, wires would contract, not cross and everything worked fine.

Whenever I would attempt to crank while hot, ammeter would also bury to one side. I think this was an indication of a short, which was what was happening inside the starter when uninsulated wires crossed. Had to replace starter.

Just another possibility

 Hi sd1968z28,

With milled flanges, are you using only ultra copper and no gasket, correct?

Thanks for the input.

I am going to install a new set of headers in my 69 Z in the near future, and wonder what is current thinking regarding gaskets, etc. in order to get a good seal, minimizing exhaust leakage. It's alway been a headache. What's working for others?

Hi Jerry,

I was checking out the 69 fathom green Z on your site, and noticed it does not have factory gauges (like my early Z does not) Is it an early Z? I noticed in your book that several of the window stickers shown for early Z's do not have factory gauges either. Just wondering if this was an "early" Z phenomenon?

Don't know how many times I've heard that "all" Z had gauges!

581  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How Much Do You Drive? on: April 12, 2007, 02:29:08 PM
Have driven my 69 Z pretty much on weekends. Had 77K on it 1982, now has approx 93K. so ... 600 miles a year?  If you are really worried about price of gas, better sell that boat!! On hybrid, I heard stat claiming it would require 23K city miles/year to break even versus standard gas engine. Maybe a taxi would be ahead.

Are these rivets easy to fake today, or are they a type from the past which makes it harder to fake them?

I see where the interior is totally over painted as original cars are more red primer with maybe some color overspray.

584  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 69 Crossram manifold on: April 11, 2007, 11:09:17 AM
The 69 Z/28 factory aluminum 4bbl intake is blocked off in front where the oil filler tube is located on the 67 version of this manifold. Is this true for a cross ram manifold as well? If a cross ram manifold has an oil filler tube located in front, does this mean it is not a 69 version, but an earlier year? 67 or 68? Or are they all the same?

585  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: L88 heads and intake question? on: April 11, 2007, 09:41:51 AM

Why do racers block heat riser passages? To keep carb/fuel charge as cool as possible? What are down sides (if any) to this when warming engine on cold day?
