It's been 7 years now but when I was researching 1st gen Camaros to buy I ran across a '67 SS396 that was advertised as having a report from Jerry.  I contacted him and he provided me with a full report on the car.  I don't remember the price or fee he charged.

I kind of like the 4 headlights look.

You have to make sure you have a cat that is a great mouser, but when I had a mama cat and one of her offspring prowling my house and garage area outside they basically caught any rodents that came around.   Nothing like a mouser cat to keep the rodents under control.

Yes, I think of Pearl Harbor Day every Dec. 7th even though I wasn't even born yet when it happened.  My mother told me about it growing up.  My dad was in the Navy during WWII as was one of my uncles who was on the USS Enterprise that day heading toward Pearl from I think Guam.  They were late leaving Guam and were held up by weather, etc. otherwise they might have been at Pearl too on Dec. 7th. 
One of the last 2 survivors from the USS Arizona, Lou Conter, age 101, lives in the next town over from me.   I used to see him often before the COVID pandemic.

Happy Thanksgiving to all on this site.  Enjoy family and friends.  Don't eat too much or watch too much football.

Bought my sheets today.   The woman that waited on me mentioned they are selling fast.  They are called pony cars by the Post Office, but they left out the Firebird and Cuda.

Thanks for sharing; I hadn't seen it yet.  I'll be heading to the Post Office soon.

Thank you for the pic.  Those redlines do look nice.

Those new red lines look great.  I am guessing your rally wheels are 14x7.  Did you have any problems getting them to fit or any rubbing issues? 

Now I just have to convince myself that it is alright to spend $328 per tire plus taxes and shipping for redlines instead of $120 per tire plus taxes and no shipping cost for white lines.

Beautiful car.  I often wish mine had disc brakes, but I do like the mag style wheel covers mine has as they don't seem to be very common.

I just bought the FR70-14 Redlines and they're sitting in my garage (unmounted).  I bought from JEGS because they had a $100 off coupon, plus free shipping.    That made them a tad under $300/tire.  Still, an absolute punch to my gut, but they'll look good.  I'm replacing BFG Radial T/A RWL 215/70R14 that were put on the car in ~1991.  Plenty of tread left!  But, I think they have the elasticity, plasticity, and grip of granite at this point.

When I get them mounted, I'll take a before and after pic and post them here ... probably in the next couple of weeks.  Then you (OP) can see if the redline premium is worth it to you.

I'll hold off buying any tires until I see your before and after pics.  Thanks again.

Thanks guys for all your ideas.  Right now I'm learning toward Uniroyal Tiger Paw AWP II's in a 215-70R-14.  These come with a white stripe, and my local tire dealer has them for $120.26 each.  I definitely want a radial as I prefer their handling over a bias ply.   Firestone no longer makes the tires now on my Camaro.
