Thanks Ed and William.  Mystery (at least to me) solved.  I'll look into the parking brake cable brackets.  I do have the U-bolts there which is good news. 
32  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 Z/28 Rear Spring Holders on: August 06, 2011, 09:22:23 PM
I don't know the correct term for this part of the rear springs.  It is the plate right at the bottom of the leafs with 4 bolts in it that holds the springs to the axle, also where the rear shocks attach.  Did these originally come from the factory on '69 Z/28's about the same width as the leaf springs, maybe a little wider?  That is all I have ever seen.  My '69 Z/28 has these with an extra length facing toward the rear end with 2 holes in the extra length.  I tried to show what mine look like in the photos.  I have never seen these before on any other '69 Camaro.  Does anyone have any idea what this extra width and set of holes were for and if this type of spring holder did come as original on '69 Z/28's?  Thank you.

I'm in Nevada City, Calif., a town in the Northern California foothills between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe. 
35  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Redline tires on: July 18, 2011, 01:31:41 PM
I would say yes as it was the standard 1967 SS tire.  An optional white stripe tire was also available on the SS.

Do most of you guys do all of your own maintenance, etc. on your first gen Camaros?  I can do the basic, simple stuff but am unknowledgeable with more complicated stuff or don't have the right area or tools to do the job.  Any suggestions on finding a reputable, trustworthy mechanic or shop to work on a 1969 Z/28?  Thank you.
37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Too Old of Tires to Use? on: June 03, 2011, 02:58:34 PM
My basement is ventilated but can get water on the concrete floor after a heavy rain; the tires have been stored elevated on upside down folding chairs.  Definitely no mold has formed on them.  Three of the tires have what I would call patterns developing on the sidewalls and in the white lettering, not really cracks but definitely not perfectly smooth as one tire is.  I think based on my looking at them closely and noticing the sidewalls (pre-cracks?) I'm going to go ahead and get a set of new ones and save the best old one for a spare.  Thanks guys for your input. 
38  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Too Old of Tires to Use? on: June 02, 2011, 03:58:57 PM
Hi guys,

     I would like your opinions on this.  I have a set of reproduction Goodyear Wide Tread GT's E70-15 that were manufactured in Nov., 2003 that I put on my '69Z for less than a year in April, 2004.  Since then they have been stored in my basement where it is cool, damp in the winter, and of course they were not exposed to sunlight.  I want to replace the Eagle GT II's on my Z that are 14 years old.  I drive my Z about every 2-3 months for about 30 miles of freeway speed, the rest being around town at 25-45 mph.  Are my old Wide Tread GT's alright to put back on my Z now, or are they too old where I should buy new ones?  I have read articles mentioning tires should be replaced with everywhere from 6-10 years being mentioned.  Thanks for your input. 
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 YH wheels on: March 28, 2011, 02:37:53 PM
If it is true that the YH wheels were batch made does anyone know what the dates should be for YH wheels made in Jan., 1969, and what dates would be appropriate for an 01C built Z?  Thank you.

Keep it original. 
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Stant Oil Fill cap was it ? .? on: October 28, 2010, 12:28:09 PM
My one-owner, all original 1967 RS with the L30 327, 275hp V8 had a cap on the black oil fill tube just like the one you have pictured.  I can't remember if it was a Stant brand or not.  Unfortunately I don't own the car anymore.

Thanks guys for your info. 
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Original carb for engine or not on: September 14, 2010, 12:29:51 PM
I learned on this site that the carburetor was installed on the engine at the assembly plant, not on the engine when it was built at the engine plant.  My car was built the 3rd week in Jan., 1969 at the Van Nuys plant; date on trim tag is 01C.  My engine stamp is V0110DZ.  The date on my 4053 Holley carb is 913, which I'm deciphering as built the 3rd week in Jan., 1969.  Could this be the original carb for my engine or is it too late to have made it onto a 01C car?  Thank you.   
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: How often do you wash your Camaro? And what do you use to wash it? on: June 15, 2010, 12:19:35 PM
I usually wash mine about twice a year.  I use a car wash soap specially formulated for washing cars if it needs it to get rid of mud or dirt splashes on it, along with of course water.  If it just has a coating of dust I just use water.  I wipe it down when using the car wash soap with a washing mitt and dry it off with a genuine chamois.  I wax it completely every 2 years with Meguiar's Gold Class wax.  This works great for me.  It was repainted in the original factory color around 20 years ago with a clear coat finish, and the paint still looks great.
