Mark,

Where is the Camaro Specialties in your picture?
There is another one in Charlotte, NC = Young's Camaro Specialties.

Hotrod is right.  Take a look at the rear springs, too.  They should be multi-leaf for a 396. Unless it is a REAL BARGAIN, pass on it and find a better car.

Thanks, Hotrod & Joe.  Actually, that's part of the reason I started this poll.  The previous owner of my car restored it half in the direction of sport and half in the direction of luxury. (Actually, he went in so many different directions, it's hard to tell...) When I finally decide to give up driving it for a while and put the big bucks into it, I've got to go in one direction or the other.  Both of you make a good point about how it depends on the look and the purpose. Take another look at Summertime's black on black 68 RS above.

On the other hand there were some 60s muscle cars of various models ordered with BB motors and vinyl tops.  I had a buddy in college that had a 71 red BB Chevelle, SS, stripes, and yes, a black vinyl top.  Everybody loved that car! It was sort of like an "I want it all" attitude.  How else would you explain a BB RS/SS Camaro?  Come to think of it, however, my buddy got his one night when he pulled up next to a dog bowl hubcapped, plain jane Camaro.  Turned out to be a COPO.

What do the rest of you think???

You need to talk to Ed:

What do you think?
1881  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How Much Do You Drive? on: October 05, 2006, 08:20:25 PM
OK, poll closed down for now...
1882  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fan and orientation? on: October 05, 2006, 08:14:39 PM
Just looked at the "finished product" in your other posting.  LOOKS GREAT!
If you are not worried about the originality issue for shows, the 7 blade fan certainly is a good idea.
Isn't Skaneateles about in the middle of NY state? How long before the lake effect snows force you off the road?
1883  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fan and orientation? on: October 04, 2006, 08:59:04 PM
Things are fine in W-S.  I drove my 68 200 miles last weekend.
OK, my A/C question was off the wall for a L78, but my confusion was around the number of blades I was coming up with from your picture.  So your fan is 7 blade.  I did not know that was a 68 option.  Kurt's article (mentioned above) refers to 7 blade for 69.  Am I missing something here?
1884  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Fan and orientation? on: October 04, 2006, 01:22:35 PM
Mark,
When you say "heavy duty" do you mean 4 core rows?  And does your car have factory A/C?
1885  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Air cleaner BASE has 'holes' in it ...original??? on: October 03, 2006, 07:03:16 PM
Kevin,

Back in the early 60s there were guys (not exactly rocket scientists) who would drill holes to allow more air in (That's why I asked about the filter relationship).  Granted, it was probably the wrong approach to a good idea by guys who owned a drill but didn't have the money to buy a new breather.
1886  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 750 CFM Edlebrock on: October 02, 2006, 07:19:36 PM
Well... I've always read that you really don't need more than 650 CFM on any small block unless you plan on racing it... However, the 600 you already have is just fine for the street.
I agree with Ed.
But let me also say:
What are your goals for your 68?
If it is a driver, Ed is certainly right.  Too big justs costs money.
If it is to show and originality counts, you've already done too much.
If you want someone to look under the hood and say, "Looks sweet!", then the bigger the better and do it in chrome.

Thanks for the heads up...

When you find such things you should report it, IMMEDIATELY!  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked

Look on pages 280 and following of Colvins, BY THE NUMBERS, 65-69, when you do find the numbers. Ed is right.  It should be a cast iron Saginaw in a 327/275.  But the numbers you gave aren't...
1889  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Air cleaner BASE has 'holes' in it ...original??? on: September 27, 2006, 08:27:26 PM
Where are these holes in relation to the air filter?  Around the outer edge of the base where the air would flow through the filter?
1890  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stupid question of the day on: September 26, 2006, 09:32:03 AM
Actually, "modifying" was a popular past time in the 60s and 70s.  In fact, lots of us who are restoring in the 00s got our start modifying back then.  Reasons: the Z label was popular, hideaway headlights were cool, and the Y chromosome (make that the Why-not chromosome).
