Kurt,

I have all original drive train parts. What do you want - casting dates, assembly dates, etc.? I can email a spreadsheet, or?

Hi Kurt,

I have a 69 Z that I've owned since 1982, and I know is not in your data base. Do you want info to add?

Don't know if this will help, but look for long bumper guards on rear bumper also. I have seen many Camaros over the years painted and emblemed like Z/28's, but without the correct rear bumpers guards. About the only clue to a possible fake without looking under the hood.

On another subject...... how do I get a pic of my car like the thumb nails of others I'm seeing? Tried "downloading my pic" in my profile, bur it didn't seem to work. Maybe my file too large?? What's the secret?

The way I heard it, Chevrolet started with the retro look, but then decided to pursue this more modernistic approach instead.
I know I was disappointed. The company that brought us the Tri-Fives, Corvette, Camaro, Etc. seems to be gone. There is really nothing Chevrolet makes today that appeals to me. Perhaps others feeling the same would explain the skyrocketing prices on the first generation Camaros? Or it's just baby boomer nostalgia?

OOPS! My mistake. Then from block casting to final assembled Camaro is only about 3 weeks.

Just curious what everyone thinks: Is this new version preferable to a more retro '69? I'm not sure I'm crazy about the new modernistic styling. I'm probably just getting old and nostalgic, but I would have definitely had more of an interest in something that looks more like a 69; like the new mustangs that are out. Am I nuts??

581  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 z/28 what to with it? on: August 13, 2006, 09:06:08 PM
How does that 396 fit with the small block heater core? Or has that been switched to a big block type? When I've seen these in the past, small block heater core looks like it has been banged on to clear the big block?

3946878 - Piston & Pin Assembly 302 .001 OS, 1969, forged, floating pin
3946880 - Piston & Pin Assembly 302 .020 OS, 1969 forged, floating pin

The SS package was basically an engine package, i.e. 350 or 396. So was the Z/28, i.e. 302; RS was an appearance package which could be ordered on any Camaro.

I pulled out my 34 year old copy of "How to Hot Rod Small Block Chevy" published in 1972, and "viola", it lists the part no.'s for 69 302 engine's full floating pistons; not only standard 4" bore, but .010, .020, and .030 over as well. Aslo listed is the spirolox retainer no. This conspiracy goes way back. May be related to Kennedy assasination??

I also have seen a article somewhere on an  69 Z which was burgundy with red stripes from the factory? Article showed pic's of original car from 69 with original paint as I remember. How'd that happen? I wasn't too crazy about the combination, it looked kinda strange.
