And a couple more. (Will post link to video once I figure out how to upload to youtube.)

Here are promised pics of Gardner exhaust with resonators.

I think I would have been extremely unhappy if I went back to pick up my car after service to learn that my exhaust system had been changed out. Wouldn't you?

Dave,

I purchased my exhaust system from Gardner Exhaust Systems. It is a factory correct reproduction, including the correct clamps and hangers. At the time, they sold two versions, one made of stainless steel for concours show purposes and a lower cost one. Based on advice from Jerry, I purchased the stainless one. After installing, I went through Legends Class judging at nationals and lost no points for the exhaust system. It looks fabulous!

With regard to sound, you do loose some decibels, but I was very committed to the correct system.

I will have my Z on the lift this weekend and will take some photos and maybe a video.

I really liked the guys at Gardner. They were very friendly and helpful on the phone and they did a fabulous job of packaging the system.

According to Jerry MacNeish's book, the chambered exhaust was deleted from standard production on November 25, 1968. The standard then became the cross flow muffler that you have. On approximately May 15, 1969, resonators were added to the cross flow system. My '69 Z with build date 09C, has the resonators.

Oh, it sounds like it will cost more than a dinner. Jerry, well done!

Jerry,

Cool pics. Very clever way to transport.

What's in the box, the hood? Where are the front fenders? Is that the subframe? Why is it white?

I'll go with 69Z28-RS's answer on how you got it off the truck.

What an exciting project!

I have a Roadmaster 20 foot trailer with wedge front. It has an escape door on the driver's side. No problems at all for my two '69 Camaros.

Well, just to chime in on a positive note, we should all be thankful that CRG exists. The level of understanding of these cars by those on this site is uncanny. What an incredible resource for those of us who love the first gen Camaro.

And, yes, I, like many others on here, feel compelled from time to time to jump in and give my opinion about authenticity, what's correct and incorrect, etc. I have been able to contain myself (and not look like a fool) because of the respect I have for the experts that take the time to help us. We all know who they are. What's the saying? "When CRG talks, people listen..."
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 06A Z28 Vin stamp on eng pad??? on: September 01, 2011, 07:09:05 AM
Slightly  OT but......Why is it that people asking/expecting huge dollars for things on ebay cannot take pictures in focus of the some of the most important things? 

Right on. It's because they don't want you to see the details.
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My 69 not that much fun anymore on: July 28, 2011, 04:33:25 PM
Gary,

Thanks for the post.  Many of us have or are facing the same questions. I finished Legends last year. The three year quest was one of the most fun periods of my collector car phase. (Remember Dustin Hoffman in Little Big Man?) The research, finding parts, restoring parts, making new friends, earning points back, etc. was very, very rewarding for me. I wouldn't trade that experience for anything. I have wondered about "life after Legends". My solution is to focus on my other '69, non-numbers matching Camaro. Jerry MacNeish calls it my "mutt". Personally, I really like the Day 2 approach, which is where I am leaning. So, why not do both? I plan to keep the Legends car for special occasions and drive the wheels off the Day 2 car.

Do you have Jerry MacNeish's book? It answers your question and provides a wealth of other info.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Looking for Drawings of 1969 Z-28 Camero RS on: May 17, 2011, 02:00:58 PM
 I don't know of any engineering drawings available. Is there a way of taking detailed photos and converting them to drawings? If so, I am sure members here (including me) can provide detailed photos.
