I just show my car in the AACA show.  Some of my friends are Hornet's Nest officers, but I still have to work for a living and those positions are all filled by retired guys.  I have judged a bit, but again that takes time.

You're right about the track.  It's quite a site.  And you could get lost for three days just looking at all the vendor stuff.

Thanks, William!  I want to put an original style battery in my 68 with AC.  That helps.
1938  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 Battery Question on: August 31, 2006, 08:03:35 PM
In 68 (or any year) was the T60 Heavy Duty Battery tied to any other option (like AC or BB. etc.)?  Or was it just a cold weather start option?

Take a look:

In April there were lots of 1 Generation Camaros for sale --in varying states of condition...
Come see me on Saturday in the AACA show.  Grin

Whoops, sorry Mark! Missed your other question.
Take a look at this:
http://www.camaros.org/engine.shtml#CamaroEngines
If you don't count COPO (the 427s, like the COPO 9560 =BB SS in sheep's clothing), all the big blocks were ordered as SS options.
1941  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Radiator Support Assembly on: August 31, 2006, 01:19:24 PM
I agree with William: At least on the early 68 there was one radiator support assembly (P&A 1.270), PN 3914733.  I could not find anything particular in the 68 AIM either.

The CA DMV web site never actually refers to a "title search".
But this seems like a likely place to start from their site:

Forms available online are identified by  For the following forms (up to 15 copies each), call (916) 657-8098 or write DMV Information Release Unit, M/S G199, P.O.

Look at the Shroud chart.  In V-8 looks more like SB vs BB.
1944  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Great reference site with reviews on auto shippers... on: August 29, 2006, 04:56:14 PM
Good point.  And once you mentioned it, I realized that the car could still be covered under a regular policy (like when it is being trailered).
1945  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Great reference site with reviews on auto shippers... on: August 29, 2006, 01:44:05 PM
I've also found that Classic Car dealers (whom you know and trust) can be helpful, since they often ship cars or refer others.

Kevin, did you insure your car in shipping?  If so, what was the rate?
1946  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How Much Do You Drive? on: August 29, 2006, 01:40:42 PM
OK, we're picking up several votes, but not many comments...
Post a bit about your driving!
I think Hotrod was the first "Regular driver" we've found.  (And man, we'll take up for you and post your bail!)   Grin Grin Grin
1947  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: a few pics of the '67... on: August 29, 2006, 01:34:26 PM
Looks good!  Have you tried the title search?
1948  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Your worst 1st generation Camaro fears - realized on: August 28, 2006, 03:52:49 PM
I'm a tarheel myself... but back to the thread. Grin
Thanks for those pics, Richard.  I'm going back to my first post:  This is not a rebody.  It is a kit car!   Angry
In the case of this particular car, how could you not call it a kit car?  It is not original in any way, shape or form: not an original body, drive train(?), motor.  But from these pictures I can also see how it would be easy to produce a car that could fool a lot of people with an original VIN attached to it.  The kit car market has lots of cars that are registered as the original.  Sadly, it appears that the same may soon be true for Camaros.  All the more reason to check out any car thoroughly before you buy it.  Roll Eyes
1949  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 2009 Camaro is Coming!!! on: August 27, 2006, 02:46:54 PM
Actually, dealers selling "hard to get" new models far above the list price is nothing new.  It's been around for decades.  The Ebay bid approach may be a new wrinkle, but paying a high price for the first one(s) is and has been common practice.
What surprises me is the $10,000 bid!!!  Contrary to the general opinion we keep expressing, there must be somebody out there who is excited about the new Camaro and willing to pay.

GM was a "johnny come lately" with the Camaro to GTOs and Mustangs. If you go back and read about the First Generation in car magazines, etc. you will find some less than sterling reviews.  Motor Trends Car of the Year in 1967 was the Cougar.  (The European Car of the Year in 67 was the Fiat 124?!?)  Yet, the Camaro became the car we love and they sold a lot of them!  (Even though it took several years to catch up with the Mustang.)

GM executives are getting on the band wagon.  The CEOs -Wagoner and Lutz have been talking to the press.  There have been events in August where they were out talking.  As to the Internet, GM has their own blogs.  Lutz quotes J.D. Powers when it comes to the why and what of the new Camaro.  Whoever they are talking to is (gasp) excited about the possibilites.

Trust me, I'm not a current GM fan myself.  (Yes, I drive a Toyota, too!  A Celica... and I'm not thrilled with Toyota doing away with all their "real sportscars"!)  What I hope is that history repeats itself!  I bought a 68 Camaro, thirty-some years later.  I hope my granddaughter buys a classic Camaro in 2040 --even if it's solar powered!

Thought I'd bring this one back and see if anyone else wants to chime in.
Down my way, we've had beautiful weather, but cannot seem to find the time to get out and cruise.

Let's hear from you.  Vote!
