Seems i seen you do a build on a chevy truck a while back.  If your the same person then you did a great job on that truck and i have no doubt that your camaro will come out great. Keep up the great work!

I was at a show early this spring and was talking to a guy with a 68 wearing ss 350 emblems. As we talked he casualy asked where i had learned so much about camaros? I had said nothing bad about his car and in fact most of our conversation had just been about camaros ib general. I told him that i have owned a number of camaros but had learned a lot on crg. He replied "oh those guys! I went to that sight once and wont go back. They are too uppity  and snooty." I just thought he must not like the truth and left it at that. We did continue to talk and had a good time but it did seem a little odd to me as everyone always seems so nice here.

 Ok, good to eliminate an option I know I couldn't remember for sure what they looked like but thought I would try to help.

On the 68 I used to own I bought a Robbins Auto Top. It fit well and my installer said it was one of the best he had ever seen. Was not cheep by any means, and while it seemed close to the original fabric it was a good heavier material and the color seemed right on. They also seemed to have a good warranty. The guy that owns the car now has had it for 12 years and the top still looks brand new, and I had it put on 3 years before he bought the car from me. Granted it didn't see much weather except for sun when I owned it and the owner now just drives it in nice weather also. I will probably use them again when my current 68 gets on the rotisserie.

 Is it possible that the AMP gauge came from a Nova?  Nova's used the console gauges up till like 77 I believe. I know I had a 76 Nova SS with them but it has been so long I don't remember exactly what they looked like.
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: 8.2 10 bolt differential on: December 21, 2013, 12:01:45 PM
another option for you would be to build/find a 8.5 ten bolt. It can take more abuse than the 8.2 and is cheaper to find. They came in Nova's after 1970 and are a direct bolt into a first gen Camaro. You could also find a 8.5 out of a second gen Camaro/F-bird after 71 (much more plentiful)but it will take a little modification to get it to work.

  Thanks Ed! 

 I sent it to your e-mail.

9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: does this cowl tag & VIN match? on: December 01, 2013, 02:02:28 PM
That's a real early car. I haven't seen that build date before, but it is probably real. Got a pic of the tag?
Any drivetrain original?

Sorry my bad!   It was late last night when I was typing in the numbers and the trim tag date should be 08D  not 08A

The whole VIN is 12437NOR500026:  I'm got this from the owner of the car over the phone so I have not seen it myself.

  I don't own the car and it is VERY rough but the color and deluxe interior peeked my interest. Then I seen the O8D build date which I knew was early and it just kind of caught my attention.  It does have an engine(small block), trans (auto) and 10 bolt rear in it but I have no idea if they are the born with drive train.  It looks as if the rivets for the tag has been changed was the main reason I was asking & even as rough as it is I might try to make a deal and restore it.
  I have a picture of the trim tag as a word document but I'm not sure how to attach it on here.

thanks again!

  I was checking the decoding numbers section of this site and couldn't find an answer, maybe I missed it but I was wondering if the VIN number and cowl tag date  match up?

   VIN nor500026
  Trim tag date of 08A

 Maybe the larger backing plate was a second gen thing as I had a 71 SS 350 that had the larger backing plate; however I don't know that it was original to that car. 
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rotisserie on: September 26, 2013, 04:43:51 PM
  I have been looking for one also. This is the one that I'm close to ordering but have not yet.

It seems to come with a lot of extras and has good reviews.  Does anyone here have any experience with them? or know anything other than what the web site has on it?

I like JB plastic weld. Once dry you can sand it and it will fill in the cracks so once painted you'll never see it. Any hardware store sells it.

Another successful HAN in the books - and for those of us that live in the area, the addition of Barrett-Jackson was huge.
It was truly an event in and of itself that became a part of the much larger HAN festivities.

Nice additional benefit to the local economy.


agree completely !

  I don't know if it was me or what but it seemed like there were more cars this year.

I will have my red 70  RS/SS 396 at Grand Sierra.
