On my scanner, my selections are quality:low and size:large which I think works out as a maximum of 1024 when I put it on photobucket.

Here is an article from the April '67 issue of Speed and Supercar magazine, courtesy of Robert Lodewyk. There is some
information in the article that is obviously wrong, such as the notion that the off-white cream color was the only color
available. Also, it was not a "Camaro Z-28 Super Sports", just simply a Camaro Z-28. Since this was a bi-monthly pub-
lication and it says the June issue was coming out March 23rd, I assume this "April" issue came out in late January '67.

If I'm recalling correctly, JohnZ has told us the cowl tag information was generated when the body weldup began.

I have seen examples where GM records show a build date in the week prior to what is indicated on the cowl tag, so that is not true 100% of the time.

Mike, thanks for the scoop on what happened with the Cuda. It's going to take some serious money to make the necessary repairs but I don't think that will be a problem.

Mike, hopefully things get better next time around. This was an event I have always enjoyed in the past.

These are GM-issued Koni shocks, available through the parts department and, in the case of Firebirds, available as a factory option from what I have been told.
These not only have a Koni part number on them but also a GM 7-digit part number. The front shocks were part # 80A 1914, 9791593 and the rear shocks for
multi-leaf applications were part # 80E 1953, 9792749. For some reason, Firebird used a different Koni part # on the rear multi-leaf shocks in '69, 80E 2025
rather than 80E 1953. Thanks go to Robert Lodewyk for sharing these from his personal collection.

I believe I heard that Vic Edelbrock had back surgery and so did Ron Tribble, so he wasn't there either. There have usually been vendors there selling books, art, memorabilia, etc and I didn't see any of them there this year. I'm not sure why. They were charging money to park in the garages and they were 3/4 empty.

You're welcome, Mike.  I looked at the axles again and they match up with your observations.
69  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Sonoma Historics 2014 on: May 23, 2014, 08:33:30 AM
I was there and saw Chad (OCTARD), Mike (Cuda48) and Robert (SixteenGrandSedan#56). Mike Eddy debuted his Falcon for the first time and it was really well done. Besides the crash of Craig Jackson's Cuda, something happened to the #72 Camaro (blown motor maybe?) as they loaded it up on a flatbed truck and took it away. I didn't see body damage but it was maybe 100 yards away when I saw them doing that.

I know that Tony worked on Hugh Harn's '67 Camaro. I wanted to ask him about that but like I say, I never got the chance.

Ron Tonkin got the 8th one built and ultimately had two '67 Zs prepped for racing by Dana Chevrolet. Both cars were being trailered to the Continental Divide Trans-Am race in August '67 when they were involved in a trailering accident. Neither car was destroyed and they were advertised for sale in 1968. I don't know who got them after they were sold but hope to get it figured out someday.

Cool, glad you got that for him.
74  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Wanted: Vintage photographs, programs, information, etc... on: May 22, 2014, 05:49:43 PM
Yes, I did. I think you're talking about the reference made at the link below, correct?
