1966  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Do You Really "Feel" the Road Better With Manual? on: July 26, 2006, 04:11:03 AM
OK, so when someone says "feel" they mean "more work and sweat"?  Undecided

Was the manual steering on a 70 vette the same system as a 1st gen Camaro?  Huh

...Where are all these people who keep singing the praises of manual?  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
1967  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Do You Really "Feel" the Road Better With Manual? on: July 25, 2006, 03:33:06 AM
I realize this is a fairly subjective question...  Wink

I've been watching a thread (and a poll) on Team Camaro about manual vs power steering with great interest.  My 68 has power steering and I'm not about to switch to manual... Haven't owned a car with maual steering since the 60s.  (Let's face it, at slow speeds or in a tight situation, it's like driving a bus.) But several of my classic car friends (and I noticed in this poll several folks who have maual steering) claim they can "feel" the road better.

Do you think you get a better feel with manual?  If so, how and why?  Huh Huh Huh

(Thanks in advance!)  Grin

CONGRATULATIONS!  Most people in the end are decent and will do the right things.  And your patience and hard work paid off.
1969  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Dash paint color on: July 22, 2006, 03:10:12 AM
There were actually several interior color possibilities in 68.  They were related to exterior color, but not necesarily the same, and you could customize some. (I'm a long way from my research info. right now or I would tell you what they are.)
These are web pages with the 68 promos:
If your car is a Norwood car look at the interior number on your cowl tag.  I'm betting it says 712, which is black standard interior.
Look at this on CRG to verify:

Man, you guys are taking me back!
Actually, I think its great when we share "terminology".
It's also very helpful to know what is interchangable and what's not.
1971  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Replacing rear housing on: July 14, 2006, 03:50:38 AM
Well, I'm old enough to remember...  Cabbage head and also a couple of politically incorrect names.
Are you just considering a cosmetic change; i.e., 12 bolt look but all 10 bolt stuff including the gear assembly?
I'm really not sure any of it would work.  It might fit, but what would you gain?
1972  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Tires - how wide to go on my 14x6 rallys? on: July 13, 2006, 05:31:59 AM
Yep, stick to John's advice.

When I bought my 68 327/powerglide, the previous owner had just put 15x7 rally wheels with brand new WIDE tires on it.  Since my car is a driver for now, needless to say, I'm going to run them for a while.  You can't tell by my thumbnail picture, but too wide is not a good look.  Eventually, I'm going to stock.

I think the moral of this story is
--Get your info. together before you start...
--It pays to shop around...
--Set limits...
--Ask CRG!
1974  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: correct speedo gear on: July 08, 2006, 04:42:16 AM
If it didn't help Tinkerr, it sure helped several of the rest of us.  We've been hunting for that chart.  Thanks, Ed!

1975  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Your worst 1st generation Camaro fears - realized on: July 01, 2006, 04:08:29 PM
Basically, that makes it an improperly registered kit car, doesn't it?!?

We should protest, but they don't make it easy to email them!
Both the Speed website and the press releases for CCR do not give a direct email address.  You have to fill out a request form
1976  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Camaro Clubs in England??? on: July 01, 2006, 03:46:51 PM

Thanks for the reply.  I'm already in England on business, and I haven't been able to track any clubs down.
Thanks for the info. about the Swedes.  The closest I'll get this time is Norway.  But I never know what might happen in the future.

1977  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ...your opinion??? ...I have POP, is for sale elsewhere... on: June 27, 2006, 07:46:48 AM
Way to go, Kevin!  In a sense, everyone who loves cars --especially 1st Gen Camaros-- wins...
1978  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: big block 350 ?? on: June 23, 2006, 10:12:07 AM

I've always thought that "big block 350" was a misnomer for the Pontiac motors.  Apparently, GM's Pontiac motors were configured differently from Chevy and Buick.  I've also heard the Pontiac motor referred to as a so-called "medium block".
I used to have a 61 Impala SS.  Some of the 60s Impalas did have a 348 motor with 350hp.  Maybe that's part of the confusion.
Someone else would have to tell you if GM crossed over any Pontiac 350s to Impalas in the 60s.  I do not know.

1979  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: best way to clean up a cowl tag on: June 21, 2006, 03:12:51 AM
Chemical paint stripper, sanding or scraping will take it down to metal unless you are awfully careful... or at least look like you tired to clean it up, which looks suspicious.  That's why I asked about the type of paint...  Try thinner or better yet, alcohol --first.  If it was some enamel out of a can, those two may work.  By the way, some body shops use vodka to clean light overspray.
Of course, if you use the chemical stripper, you can start from scratch...
1980  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: best way to clean up a cowl tag on: June 20, 2006, 12:46:44 PM
Post a picture before you do anything else! It would also be great if you could tell what sort of paint was in that rattle can...
