1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Auction Last Weekend at Auburn on: September 01, 2014, 10:53:33 AM
Did anyone see the auction last weekend at the American Auction in Auburn?
I've been to one of their auctions before and found most of the sale figures to be in line.
Pretty good mix of cars, but maybe a little light on Camaros.
Just wondering what others think...
I'm interested in what Mecum does in Dallas and how car sales do in Charlotte later this month.

For those who are coming, all the Camaro clubs have initially been assigned spots on pit road this year. Prime location, but possibly very hot if it is sunny.

Gary,
Sounds like a great trip! Pictures???
I hope you did pay homage at John's picture banner!
A tour of the NCM should be on every car lover's bucket list.

The 67 on this month's homepage is a great looking car! Is that bias ply redlines?

OK, tickets going in the mail this week.

BTW, a local restorer reminded me that if you pre-order from a vendor and pick up at an event like this, you can save about 20%. 

Who will be at Autofair with Camaro clubs, etc???

An offer: If you are active on this forum and do plan to come to the Fall Charlotte Autofair, I'll be happy to send you two tickets (as in "vendor" tickets for the entire Autofair). PM me with your real name and mailing address. I'll send the tickets to you when they come available in September. (You will NOT be placed on any soliciting list.) If you have gotten tickets from me in the past, I still need you to let me know you are coming, so PM your name and address, as well.

Unlike the Spring event, there is no AACA meet that Saturday.  Instead, there will be an HNR regional show, which will allow some modified cars. (Yes, it is a new day....) And there will be approximately 25 other clubs showing during the event, as well. (Most of them on Saturday and Sunday.)

Several on this forum from the greater Charlotte area are in local Camaro/Chevy clubs and will be there on the weekend.  How about you guys posting here what days you will be there, what car you are bringing, and which club?

And if you have a CRG shirt, wear it!  It is a great way to pick a fellow CRG-er out of the crowd.
7  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
8  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.
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Farewell And The Best For Ed! on: July 05, 2014, 07:19:04 PM
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.
14  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...
