1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Question about original dealer license plate frames on: July 18, 2014, 02:00:57 PM
The location of the dealers name, if it has a larger section extending past the frame thickness border, may be state related and plate year. Here in NY if a license frame overlaps the New York name or the sequence number even by a little then you can get a ticket.

Mike
Same in NC now but not back then. Match them up, but I'd be surprised if there were plate standards beyond the dealership
2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Reveal Moulding Scuff Mark on: July 08, 2014, 08:12:31 AM
My windshield lower reveal moulding has a noticable scuff mark. Is it possible to polish it out? The moulding is the GM original on my 1968 coupe. Were the originals made of stainless steel and polished or chromed? Thanks, Joe.
IIRC, they were flash-chromed stainless. You can polish out scratches and imperfections using progressively finer grit, although the polished finish will have a different appearance to the original chrome. How big is the scuffed area?

Check out James' THREAD, especially what JohnZ has to say about flash chrome.

And make sure you check out the ARTICLE mentioned in the thread.

Well I guess Ed left on his own terms....
Who would have thought the post I started concerning senior members and us working together, would result in Ed calling it quits. The purpose of posting it was lets work together getting all the facts.
Whats funny is the last thing he typed was he "has a feeling" my rear end is a re-stamp.....and to go ahead and post pics of my casting numbers "if I really want the answer", then it got locked.

I could post a pic of the line worker hand stamping it, and the powers that be would say "re-stamp" because it doesn't fit the limited data that they have so far. My info went from anomalous, and not to be included, to ED identify it as a re-stamp, because he has a feeling. Does anyone else see a problem here?

Pictures can only be requested by the senior group, and when we post them  it is for research, when we ask, then they can't do it because it would be a "re-stamp gallery"
For some reason it seems like the information only flows one way on these posts asking for pictures....


Please DO NOT hijack this thread with more about your rear stamping! I for one was hoping Ed would reconsider as he's been a valuable member both here and on team Camaro.  I personally do not wish to see him go and urge all members to send Ed an email describing their desire and reasons for him to stay active. If we have indeed lost a member, we lost a valuable member and its unfortunate especially when we know some of the reasons. 


X2 Chick you hit the nail right on the head.
Please Ed, we need your voice!  And to all CRG core members, this is your site.  All the rest of us are guests.  As a guest I thank you for this forum.

I was going to borrow a couple of trim rings from my sister's 67 Vette but they are such a pain to install correctly I decided to go with what I had.

One thing I did notice in looking at cars judged in previous years, is that some of the standards have changed over time. And that's OK but I would still like to see the standards written down like in the NCRS books. I know that will be a huge undertaking, so I will offer my help in any way to be part of the solution.

Mike
Keep us posted on written standards progress. I'd love to know how that works out...

The backseat frame doesn't look too bad in your picture. Unless it is brittle, it should work fine.
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: trashing all interior i guess... what to keep? on: July 02, 2014, 10:49:06 AM
No images?  So hard to tell.
I will say keep all the screws, nuts and bolts, fasteners --in other words, hardware. You never know when you'll need it and original is hard to find.

And hopefully the rain will stay away from NC this yea.  Smiley

Long range forecast is 50/50. Hope it's good weather. There are 3 events in the greater Charlotte area, including Steele's. They are big SEMA supporters.

You can look for an event in your area on the website listed above...

Yes, second generation Camaro prices are trending up recently.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Collector Car Appreciation Day, July 11 on: June 27, 2014, 06:40:15 PM
Put your Camaro on the road or to a cruise-in on July 11.  SEMA is, again, sponsoring COLLECTOR CAR APPRECIATION DAY to remind everyone (especially legislators) that we are an important and responsible part of our culture.
Besides, it's a great excuse to drive the Camaro!

Now, if it just won't rain!

So you must know Sonny?

If you want to join a region, which you probably should, I strongly suggest G-burg. We can take this off line if you want? Hershey has a waiting list among other things.
X2, listen to Maroman....

like most such organizational shows, if you aren't an AACA member, you probably don't know about their events...  I've been thinking about joining AACA for years..    maybe it's getting to be that time.. Smiley

Gary
Gary,
Just say the word...  
I think Gary finally has a good point and agree with him..... Smiley I need to get involved in this as well!
The more the merrier!  Several of us have stayed in York the last several years for Hershey....
Let me know if you come to York again to stay and will hook up for dinner while your in the area.
Booked a room at Comfort Inn this morning.... We judge but do not show at Hershey, so that means we will only be in town about 36 hours.  But I'd like to link up with anyone who plans to be there.  Lunch on Friday, maybe...?
Now, if it just won't rain!
