Thanks, Vince. I am basically restoring the car to as it last raced so it will have the spoiler on it, although I personally like a '67 without spoilers. I may paint up an extra trunk lid without one.

Thanks, Fred.  Glad you enjoyed the pics.

Thanks. Yes, it is a new lacquer paint job. I tried years ago to locate the car that got my original engine but did have not have any luck. Yes, the tires are the new Cokers. Same style as it raced on back in the day.

12-29-14 is the car's 48th anniversary of being built. I took a couple of pics earlier today.

Yes, that's a real deal '67 Z-28 with Trans-Am race history. It was originally a Deepwater blue car with blue standard interior. and a legit heater delete car as well. The car is a strong runner in SVRA back east but would need money invested in it to be legal to run in the Historic Trans-Am group on the West Coast. A very cool car that I hope finds a good home. I'd love to have it in my own garage.

Here's a shot of the car at the 1968 Bridgehampton Trans-Am race.

The first race of '69 at Michigan was a very rainy, muddy mess. I had not previously considered how much crud would have gone through those holes into other parts of the car(s).

That's a cool car, barsteel.  Congratulations on the purchase.
55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: DF rally wheels on: December 27, 2014, 12:42:28 AM
I had a 2-68 dated DF rally wheel, the only date being inside the rim where it was covered up by the tire. The center section of the wheel had GM and K1 in the lug nut area and the rim had just the DF stamp by the valve stem hole, like you would see on a '67 dated DF wheel. The DF stamp faced in toward the center of the wheel rather than outward like you see on most other '68 DF wheels. This sounds like the kind of wheel you have on your car and the 2-68 date would be reasonable for an 04A built car.

Donohue, in his usual understated way, says the larger wheel well openings and holes drilled through the fender wells and doors weren't of critical importance, but of course they wouldn't have done it if they thought there was minimal benefit. He described the modifications as being a benefit to allow a little more air out of the engine compartment and a little more cool air being directed toward the rear tires and brakes. The drooped noses on the cars in '69 probably had more aerodynamic benefit than the drilled holes provided.

I wasn't aware of this Blood, Sweat and Gears book.  Thanks for your post letting us know about it.

Here's an ebay auction for an NOS Hayden oil cooler kit. The same type of oil cooler used on the Dana sponsored Trans-Am Camaro driven by Dick Guldstrand.

Question to anyone that knows, is there a preformed plate for the tunnel to make room for the Hurst 4 speed shifter linkage?  Any help is appreciated.  Also, anyone interested, has original Belgium title and import documents.

    Are you asking about where the location for the hole should be if you're wanting to add a 4-speed? There are usually some small dimples in the floor that show where the screw holes are supposed to be for the factory shift boot and the hole would be inside of those four holes. Yes, there is a reinforcement plate on the underside on a factory installation but you don't have to have it if you drill the holes small enough to accept the right size screws.
