General Discussion / Pics for August/September 2018
« on: August 05, 2018, 02:36:39 PM »
The Feature Car pics (a 68 this time) are up.  The other two pics are recycled from August 2006.  The 1967 Z28 is or was owned by Denis Gilbert, while the 69 is or was owned by Mike Angelo. That's all the information I have on the 67 and the 69 this time.

I have a Feature Car planned (nothing final yet) for October/November but after that, nothing.  If you want to try this, check this link on requirements.  Thanks!

1968 Z28 - British Green / Black Standard Interior 05D

OK I can not find your contact information.

The information I have about your car is limited.  I have some pics and a very short write-up, but I can not find your name in my email or in my private messages.

Your car was scheduled to be the Feature Car for February and March of this year, but due to lack of information I postponed it to April and May. 

Please contact me so we can get things ironed out.

If anyone knows whose car this is, please contact them to contact me.

Restoration / 1967 RS/SS 396 - L35 M40 project
« on: January 27, 2018, 09:16:20 PM »
Some of you may have seen this car on CL.  It was posted for numerous cities.

A good friend sent me the listing, and after being encourage by another friend - my son and I had a discussion.  I have been looking for another car. We had downsized, getting rid of three other ongoing or future project cars in order to get one a little more special.  This one seems to fit the bill.  :)

Original color is Tahoe Turquoise and it will go back to that color.  Did not have time to get all the numbers, but will tell you what I know and update more in the future.  When we picked it up, we had a 7 hour drive to get it into safe storage at an alternate location before a blizzard hit. So I checked a few things and was satisfied enough to make the deal at that point.

Axle is original to the car, BJ coded 3.07 open 12 bolt.  Currently does have a posi carrier, but not sure on ratio.  The car has a TH400, possibly original to the car.  Engine block is a 406 casting number, possibly original to the car but pad was decked.  Again - will check all the numbers at some point in the near future.  It has been off the road since the late 90s.  One owner 1980 to 2001, previous owner to me had it from 2001 to Jan 2018 (just one week ago).

The engine was rebuilt 20 plus years ago and has less than 50 miles on it since being completely redone. Non-original rectangle port heads and low rise GM aluminum LS6 type intake.  Original disc brakes, console car, black deluxe interior.

This car needs some major love (floor work, rockers, frame rails) but it is well worth saving. Don't make any crude comments, I know it is rough.

Here is a pic from the ad.  And a few more pics after very initial cleaning of some of the interior items (drivers seat is still in the car).  Will plan to keep/preserve and restore as much of the original interior as possible. The upper part of the door panels are in decent shape but the lowers (carpet pieces) will need to be replaced. Seats will need a bit more cleaning and conditioning.

This is a car that my dad, my son, and my grandson will work on together and it will end up being my son's car.  :)  Plan is that it will take several years to complete, but hopefully can be driven by the end of the summer.

General Discussion / Pics for the CRG homepage
« on: December 01, 2017, 05:24:30 PM »
We are always looking for pics of cars for use on the homepage.  These can either be just one picture, or we can do a Feature Car write-up.

Steve has been collecting and taking care of the pics for a long time, since about 2003. The current way of handling this is to send pics to Steve, and then he will forward them to me. Here is his contact information.   sdkar@bellsouth.net

If you want to have a Feature Car write-up, contact me.  bcm66@cox.net

Generally for a Feature Car write-up I would like the following.
1.  Cowl tag information about original colors, etc. (but I won't post the tag pic if you don't want it posted).
2.  Side view pic.
3.  Pic showing side and front of car (at an angle).
4.  Pic showing side and rear of car (at an angle).
5.  Engine bay pic(s).
6.  Pics of interior.

If you have any vintage pics, we can try to include those as well.  I generally don't like to have people in current pics, but may consider using them if they are vintage and you give permission to use them.

Pic size of 1064 x 728 is preferred.  If you can't do that, at least make the file size of each pic 1 MB or less please.  :)

If we don't get some new pics, we will start using old ones from the past.

New pics for Dec 2017 / Jan 2018 have been posted.  They are all Z28s.  Enjoy!

« on: July 14, 2017, 03:38:55 PM »
Looking for pics or information from original cars. If you aren't at least 99 percent sure it's original, then don't post.

Looking for the following...

1. Finish on the metal. Painted? If so what color?
2. Production year and month.
3. Vehicle Assembly plant.

Thanks!

« on: April 20, 2017, 07:36:33 PM »
Sorry if this is already listed somewhere. I searched but didn't see it.

Quote from the ad...

"Original 1968 Camaro muncie transmission with Richmond or Doug Nash M22 gears. Gears are in great shape trans spins and shifts smoothly, this transmission is a cashbox so it has no synchronizers. The case is in good shape, please look at the pictures and ask any questions before buying or making an offer."

General Discussion / Want Ads are NOT allowed
« on: December 22, 2016, 01:53:59 AM »
Have been seeing quite a few posts recently that are basically "Want Ads". These have NEVER been allowed, and there are no plans to change that.

If your post was removed, don't take offense. It's just one of the site rules.
