121  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: I saw grandpa in his 69 Camaro yesterday on: May 18, 2007, 10:54:05 PM
  I know of a hispanic girl ( probably in her mid to late 30's)here in Reno who has a dusk blue 69 with dark blue interior. Has rust over the rear quarters, bad crunch in the drivers side fender, broken grill, bent bumper, valance, header, hood. Interior is so so but would need redone. Its still got the 307 emblems on the passanger fender and is a 3spd auto with floor shifer, and the full face hub caps. I have seen the car for years, and I was in a grocery store parking lot about 4 months ago, and she was putting groceries in the car. So I asked if she wanted to sell it. I don't know if she understood what I was asking or not, but she just looked at me and simled, never said a word. I took that to be a no.
122  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What was the top Camaro? SS or Z/28 on: May 14, 2007, 06:03:52 PM
FlowJoe: No offence taken.

  My opinion is they were/are both great cars, but the Z/28 was the better all around performance package. The L89/L78 & L34 SS 396's were very quick and great drag/stoplight to stoplight cars but didn't handel like the Z/28. It just came down to what you wanted.

 I did not intend to start any arguments, and please keep the opinions comming.


Oh by the way at this time on NastyZ28 the Z28 has a slight lead.
123  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / What was the top Camaro? SS or Z/28 on: May 14, 2007, 12:12:19 AM
  This is how it was presented on the Nastyz28 second gen site so I presented it the same way here. At this time on that site most people feel that the SS was the top level of first gen Camaro. My personal opinion is it depended on what you wanted, the Z/28 was the better all round car, while the SS 396 would be the better stop light to stop light car. What started the debate on the second gen site was when the Camaro returns in 2009 what should the top performance model be, Z/28 or SS?

Thanks for your replys.
124  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: HURST/GM collaboration to put factory T-tops in 67 camaros? on: May 05, 2007, 10:04:16 PM
  The earilest I know of, is in 1970 Hurst made something like that in a Camaro with some kind of open top, ( sorry I don't know if it was a t-top or a retractable sun roof; one or the other though) that was called a HURST SUNSHINE SPECIAL. IIRC they were all daytona yellow in color and they made somthing like 3 of them and two are still known to exist IIRC.
125  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Found Camaros, Not For Sale... on: May 02, 2007, 11:39:04 PM
  I know of a matching numbers 67 RS/SS 350 setting in a guys backyard for the last 17 years that he wont sell. It is slowly rusting into the ground, when I first seen it you could still tell it was butternut yellow. Now it has faded to the point that it looks more white, at least where the surface rust has not covered it. Its sad I know of 2 dozen 67-73 Camaros with 8 or 9 of them being first gen cars setting that the owners wont sell.
126  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help decoding 69 - Thanks. on: April 06, 2007, 08:14:11 PM
  Your welcome sorry I cant be more help the VIN only tells what plant it came from N=Norwood and that it had a V8 from the factory. As for the block and heads I don't have a book that will tell me what the casting numbers go to. If you look on the block behind the altanatior (at least on small blocks) there is a pad that should have a stamp on it (something like T02VMC) followed by the last part of the VIN number to the car it was orgionaly installed in. If you can get those I can help a little more by telling you what kind of car/truck the engine was orgionaly installed in.
127  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help decoding 69 - Thanks. on: April 05, 2007, 09:40:52 PM
 The trim tag is ST-69 =1969  NOR = Norwood assembley plant 160376 body sequence number
                       10D = 4th week October build date TR 712 = black custom interior 69B= Cortez silver paint/w black vinyl top
128  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: seafrost green with ivy gold int on: April 01, 2007, 10:17:41 PM
 If you look for the 67-68 Camaro reference book by John R. Hooper ISBN0-9633802-4-9 or if you can pick up the dealers brochure it will show the color of the interior. It is one of those interiors that unless someone is going back to stock people change out (most people don't like green interiors). That is one thing I think that would make it kind of neat to have becasue you wont see many of them. The seafrost I think is a good looking color when nice a shinney. My 67 is butternut with a black deluxe which everyone likes but you will find a lot of them. I get more comments on the color of my 71 SS350 which is white with black vinyl top and a White/Black houndstooth looking deluxe interior becasue you don't see them as often. Either way good luck

 I don't have a photo but I used to have a friend who had a 68  with that combination and it actually looked really good. The Ivory gold is kind of a greenish color it's not really a white or gold color.
130  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How Much Do You Drive? on: April 01, 2007, 03:26:06 PM
 My 67  (the only first gen I have now) is in pieces, my 70 SS 396 is waiting its turn, my 71 SS350 is getting all the attention to try and get it done, and the only one that is drivable is my matching numbers all orgional 80 Z/28 which gets driven weekly durning nice weather.
131  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: LA/Nor Vehicle ID numbers on: March 22, 2007, 10:59:31 PM
 Is it possiable that a Camaro might have VIN N300001 and a Firebird L300001? Being both cars were built at the same plant? Or did Pontiac have a different number sequence?
132  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: VIN to add to the data base on: March 18, 2007, 01:46:15 AM
 The code on the block looks like V0902MK but it's hard to read it has what looks to be the last part of the VIN number under it but its very faint.The casting number of 3892657 is on the block and I have not pulled the valve covers to check the heads. I tried to get numbers off the trans but did not see them, and I'm not sure if the rearend is orgional or not. It is a 10 bolt but has multi leaf springs and I have not been under it yet to check the codes. I will try to sometime this week of next weekend and post them.
133  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / VIN to add to the data base on: March 17, 2007, 03:54:05 PM

Here is a VIN and trim tag to add to the data base. If it is already in there will you let me know? And maybe who listed it? If I can get any history on the car that would be great. 
                                    VIN   7L104942
                               Trim Tag         09D          A374
                                                  67-12637  LOS 1679
                                                   765           Y-2
                                                   E      2 LGR    3SL
                                                    5 BY

One thing if you can answer it also is the A374 on the top of the trim tag. That has something to do with the production run right? How is that decoded?
134  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vinyl or Not? on: March 17, 2007, 03:46:14 PM
  Back in the day I hated them, but I was into hotrodding them at that time. Now as time has gone on I have gotten sick of seeing all the aftermarket chrome, intakes, carbs, wheels, seats, paint and other stuff people do to them. I like them to look the way they came from the factory which is why my butternut yellow 67 RS will have the black vinyl top it came with. The 327 will we solid chevy orange and the rest of the car will be as stock as I can make it.
135  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Hidden VIN on: March 05, 2007, 10:40:56 PM
  Thanks for the link Kurt and the help from the rest of you.  As soon as I get the car home I will give you the trim tag info Kurt so that you can add it to the data base.
