2131  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1968 Z-28 on: January 19, 2006, 07:50:15 PM
I know the small block matched up, but wouldn't you like to know why they put in a 327 and not another 302?!?
If you like the car (and paid a fair price) then you are not crazy.  When you drive down the road on a sunny day and everyone gives you a second look, you'll at least know there are a lot of folks who love a Camaro --Z, matching #s, or not!
Good luck on the restoration... Happy motoring!

2132  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Black Firewall Paint on: January 14, 2006, 08:34:56 PM
I just want to thank Chris for starting this great discussion.  I learned a lot just reading through it.
A word about documentation: I went through an AACA judging school last year, mainly for my own edification.  While their judging is not model specific, they are very strict about what they accept for documentation.  It must be information from the manufacturer.
If there are any recognized Camaro judges out there, it would be great to know their standards.  Before the juding school, I would have said they should have told Chris those things.  But I now know only the head judge is supposed to talk to the car owner, and that is done only if the owner asks.
Also, after hearing these guys say what a great looking car Chris has, I'd love to see some pictures!  I remember 68 well.  Green was cool in 68.

I listened to GM's video link about the new Camaro (OK, capital C), and they implied it was not retro.  That may explain some of our dislike to the design.  Guess we will have to wait and see.... Roll Eyes
And some good news: I had supper tonight with a GM dealer who told me an initial GM notice said the price should only be about $200 more than the Mustang! Grin

Hope you had good luck getting that back seat out.  One word of caution from my 68.  When you put the seat back in, work it back in place gently.  Sometimes the hook and holder get brittle (mine did) and they will break if you force it.  Also, it may be difficult to get the seat to go all the way back.  But it will if you work it slowly.

I have to agree with Dutch.  This is a camaro --lower case "c".  That seems to be GM's problem.  It is good that the name Camaro may get back into the GM line, however.  I hope they will refine it (and retro it) quite a bit before it comes out.  And why wait till 2009?!?   Sad Angry Huh
2136  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Brake Fluid Leak on: January 03, 2006, 10:10:08 PM
Help CRG.   Huh A day or so after I drive my 68, I get a drop or two leak of brake fluid.  I've isolated the leak to a line connection near the master cylinder and think (hope) I've fixed it.  My question is: Why the leak a full 24 hours after driving?  I never saw it leak right after driving.  I would have thought that the pressure of appling the brakes would make the leak show up right away.  (The line is a front disc line, by the way.)  Is this just a wierd coincidence or the nature of brake line leaks?

FYI... There is a Nov. 7 posting that discusses the same problem... and gives more suggestions.  Good Luck! Grin

Before you try the "jaws" or taking the door apart, spray some silicone lubricant every where you can to get it on the lock, including down the window well.  Then work the latch every way you can --several times, rapidly.  My 68 does this from time to time.  It may not be coming apart.  It may just be stuck!   Roll Eyes
2139  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Value of 67 RS SS on: January 02, 2006, 01:04:48 PM
Depends on what you mean by "needs to be restored and brought back to life"...
Of course, the ultimate answer is in the hands of someone else's checkbook.  Right now, in the Carolinas, I'd say:
If a lot of the need is rust, less than $7,000.  If it is relatively rust free and just needs a good wash and wax job, then $12,000 - $18,000.  Restored, as much as $28,000.
Go to one of the price guides, use their "fair to show" ratings.  You'll get close... Huh
