Why not list it as a 'tribute car'?   Why the big lie?  ... it's nice overall and I agree, there's not much premium to a Pace Car;  unless it is completely documented.

I like it.... a lot.  Will watch the Auction tonight, to see what premium someone will pay to drive around the track with the big-wigs.

64  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: First Gen. Z/28 options on: January 18, 2011, 11:53:41 AM
I am wondering.  If I really really wanted a Z/28 convertible, or a Z/28 automatic or Z/28 with AC, could I have gotten one if I was willing to pay a premium or sign off that the AC would not be warranted.  I suppose the issue was never tested because if you really wanted these items on a sporty Camaro, you just got and SS instead.  However, they did build that Z/28 convertible for Pete Estes.  So, I had a time machine and walked into a dealership and plunked down the full sticker price and say an additional $500 for "convenience", could I have gotten a convertible Z/28? 

I'll bet if I went to Gibb Chevrolet at the right time I could have gotten him to change one of those 50 ZL1's to a convertible RS with JL8, power windows and factory AC.  Tell me I'm not the only one that would do that if we had a time machine. 

I can only think it never happened because no one really tried.   

OK!  So now you get back out of the time machine and you are the richest man on the planet.  You stole the idea for the 'desktop PC and You Tube'
You walk into the nearest Chev dealership and tell them you want a 'ZR1 Convertible'      They.... Roll Eyes
Then you tell them 'you don't care what it costs'                                                         They... Shocked  then .... Roll Eyes
OK.... NOW you tell them you'll pay them $50K just to try to put in the order.......They  Grin and take your money.
No such luck!   Cry

Behind you walks in a Gentleman, who is the President of the largest shareholder in General Motors..... (Mr. Obama)...
He is immediately recognized as such and asks if he could please order the same car you wanted....
Now they pick up the phone and start making calls...... maybe he could get one.

Times change but some things do not.   Cheesy

Nice little tidbit gentlemen.  Got to find that orange engine paint!!!
66  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: drive shaft with balancer on: January 15, 2011, 04:17:23 PM
Picture please?  We used to attach 'hose clamps' to drive shafts to obtain balance. The weight of the screw assembly with a couple of clamps was often enough.....
67  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z28 coil bracket- Notched? on: January 15, 2011, 04:13:44 PM
OK fess up !  Who's jumping all over this bid?  Sweet deal at $16, but now?

Must be someone who believes the seller's description :-(

I'm not so sure you can say it's wrong.  Looks original enough (vintage) and as I have seen this bracket in the past with a 270 coil. Perhaps it has other applications IE vett or what have you... but it is definitely not a bracket from a re pro house.  no doubt your bracket does not have the notch, but like I said... I have seen this combination in the past.

Here's another one... note the pictures carefully and see that there is a step up from the bottom of the bracket as well as the notch on the bracket. The 'step up' allows a more severe angle for the bracket to be inclined.... will not sit flat on a flat surface... needs to be over the edge of a table to sit flat on the bracket bolts....

'Muscle cars will still be built'.   Your just going to have to wrap your mind around how a 4 cylinder direct injected twin boosted engine figures into the picture.  Less mass, better fuel efficiency and great torque.  Mustang will have em for sure in the replacement to the V6, we just got to accept that the definition will require some 'hard swallowing'. OH and I have no doubt these new set-ups will be very quick.

Rally... I have seen several variations of the coil bracket and no doubt some are repop.  I did find one unique that I had a pic of one time.  It would not stand straight up on a flat surface, as there was a notch out of the bottom  that allowed a more severe tilt to the coil bracket.  I found others with different degrees of inclination that were flat on the bottom (ie could stand up on a table and tilt backward)..... I will look for the pics. looked like this one..
71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What other steering columns will fit 1969 Camaro? on: January 10, 2011, 07:45:08 PM
70-81 Camaro steering column would fit with no mods IIRC.  Find them on Ebay all the time for $200-300
72  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 GM part numbers on: January 09, 2011, 10:31:47 AM
   For a judged car they may garner points for the numbers and correctness - but wouldn't they lose just as many for poor finish if as described?

School me please - Thx - Randy

NOS=New Off Shore Cheesy

Then they pay $400 to have them re-plated?
73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Custom Interior 69 Camaro on: January 07, 2011, 04:40:58 PM
There are many "restored" Camaros today that have cross-bred interiors. Houndstooth covers are commonly seen in standard interiors.

Here's comfortweave seats with standard interior. Odd miscue for a "total fresh nut/bolt rotisserie restoration." Even has a "789 Holly carb." Can't expect perfection for $99,500 I guess.

If that was the only miscue then I'd allow the term 'restored'..... Roll Eyes
