1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: July 21, 2014, 11:27:37 PM
Hi Danny and great find! What a girl friend! Just got back from vacation this morning and thanks for the email and kudos on my build thread, and yes, we now have Camaro relatives, huh! Great pictures and documentation so thank you! On the GT stamp, know I have not observed enough to have any idea if having the T only was common as many things could have been possible but we now know of one, yours. Hard to find examples like this with so much of the original content still there. I would tend to believe the PCV has been changed due to being a later design but maybe an expert will chime in. Again, great 68Z and congratulations.

What would is the best date code for a 1111467 distributor for a 302 z/28 assembled 3/29/68?
I'm not too sure there are many choices due to how many build distributor dates did they have prior to your engine build.  There was a 7J3 & 7J30 that JerrysM has  noted he's never seen in a car (potential service replacements per Jerry) and after that the first distributor 1111467 build I have noted is 8B8 with nothing until after your engine was built. To me the key is finding out what distributor batches (build dates) were manufactured prior to your 3/29 engine build which might be extremely low.

Well I guess Ed left on his own terms....
Who would have thought the post I started concerning senior members and us working together, would result in Ed calling it quits. The purpose of posting it was lets work together getting all the facts.
Whats funny is the last thing he typed was he "has a feeling" my rear end is a re-stamp.....and to go ahead and post pics of my casting numbers "if I really want the answer", then it got locked.

I could post a pic of the line worker hand stamping it, and the powers that be would say "re-stamp" because it doesn't fit the limited data that they have so far. My info went from anomalous, and not to be included, to ED identify it as a re-stamp, because he has a feeling. Does anyone else see a problem here?

Pictures can only be requested by the senior group, and when we post them  it is for research, when we ask, then they can't do it because it would be a "re-stamp gallery"
For some reason it seems like the information only flows one way on these posts asking for pictures....


Please DO NOT hijack this thread with more about your rear stamping! I for one was hoping Ed would reconsider as he's been a valuable member both here and on team Camaro.  I personally do not wish to see him go and urge all members to send Ed an email describing their desire and reasons for him to stay active. If we have indeed lost a member, we lost a valuable member and its unfortunate especially when we know some of the reasons.

I know I sure liked looking at it George and you did GREAT as Tony the tiger says. Smiley There were a lot of changes to those deck lids as even the stamping changed location. And better yet, it was a real pleasure meeting you and having some conversation.
Love that color combo and Big Block!

My 70Z LT-1 has the green tip dipstick.

Does it have the dimple in the neck of the finger grip and same stamp as my first post or something different altogether? I'm leaning towards mine being either a later stick or an over the counter. Might have to hit the  second gen NastyZ boys and ask what they have to know for sure.
Dimple in the neck = Later service replacement

Pour some evapo-rust in and let it soak and then preserve with some oil or just clean the rust scale off and paint on rust resolver which you can buy at Wall-mart, Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.

It was a great turn out!!  With the weather iffy all the cars got in and out of the building without issue.  My second trip netted a score of 97.1 or 4855 points out of 5000.  A lot is owed to Bob Harris, Larry Christensen, Brad Mcadam and Jerry Macneish.  They all helped me over this past year to bring the car to this point.  I will post some pictures of the car at the show shortly.  I like the fact that they were very clear on how certain things should be on this car (1969 Z-28 LA car lemans blue)  It seems that all the discussion and research has clarified just how this car came from LA plant in April 1969

 Congrats on the score.    What did the judges decide on the trim rings?
Great score and congratulations! Smiley
As Mike asked, what did the judges decide on the trim rings?

Not my first car (62 Austin Healey 3000) but have back our first New Car, i.e. 69 L78 Nova

While at the Nationals I met a guy from CRG and we talked about my car having the wrong year trunk lid. He mentioned he had several nice lids. I wrote his name after our conversation but can't find it now. If you read this can you contact me, I am very interested. I need a nice late 68 - early 69 lid. George

X2...let me know too.

I'm assuming it has to do with the stamping change in location and/or the design change due to Trans-am Firebird.
Was great meeting everyone at Frederick and again those that came up to Carlisle on Saturday.
And all the cars looked great so congratulations to everyone especially Larry's 1000 point kick off! Well done Larry!

I'd guess it was first bow-tie judged and then legend judged the three times (2003, 2004, & 2009). Seems someone is using one of the present price guides which shows #1 condition 69Z at 99K. A nice color for sure.

Hi Randy! Realize this is a tough decision on your part so take your time with that. Without seeing the car its difficult but know the car has the original (no doubt) block and the early 266 distributor is a biggie. Nicely restored 68Z's bring 60 to 65K. Your car has many plusses (Canadian doc's, engine, dist. etc.) but also has to some buyers issues with the wrong paint. Stack the pro's and con's and see where you think that compares to say a $60,000 USA car. Last year according to Keith Martin's report 68Z's went down 6% and he has top values under 60K. Many of us as already mentioned can/would assist with posting pictures of the car.
Both Randy's car and our 68Z are siblings since both engines were born on the same day late in 1967.

I will be at Carlisle Friday.  Chick I would like to meet you.   I have to meet someone at SLS to get parts.  Dan
Dan, I will be there but not probably until the afternoon as I plan on being in Frederick in the AM hours and then driving north to Carlisle. Should be there by 1 to 1:30!
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Camaros at AACA Grand Nationals Last Friday on: June 16, 2014, 08:40:21 PM
like most such organizational shows, if you aren't an AACA member, you probably don't know about their events...  I've been thinking about joining AACA for years..    maybe it's getting to be that time.. Smiley

Gary
Gary,
Just say the word... 
I think Gary finally has a good point and agree with him..... Smiley I need to get involved in this as well!
The more the merrier!  Several of us have stayed in York the last several years for Hershey....
Let me know if you come to York again to stay and will hook up for dinner while your in the area.

Gettysburg Region would be a lot closer. They just had a regional show at Latimore  race track last Sat.
Hershey is only 4 to 5 miles farther than Gettysburg from where I'm at. Interesting as I was at Latimore race track last month! Great track that was saved and extremely nice race museum.

AACA Grand National meet is always a "must see"!  Muscle cars are becoming more & more popular there.  Also, even if you don't have a particular interest in the brass era cars - you'll appreciate the incredible level of detail & workmanship.  Next year it's going to be in AZ, so the participation will probably be down a bit - the membership is not as heavily concentrated out west.  They try to move it around the country so that everyone is within reasonable driving distance at some point.  It's a very friendly group of car people!
Chick - you'll be in the Hershey Region - bring you car(s) to Fall Hershey!
Will do Bruce as Fall Hershey is one heck of a show. Will talk about that when I see ya.......
