Since I own a 1969 Z/28 I chose Vince to honor Vince Piggins, generally regarded as the driving force behind Chevy offering the Z/28 package to homologate the car for SCCA Trans-Am racing.  My real name is Mario.

My 01C '69 Z/28 has the wire on the diverter valve.  It's a Los Angeles car if that might matter.

From photos the original owner of my 69Z sent me it came with Goodyear Wide Tread GT's.  It is an 01C Van Nuys car.

Thank you all for your answers and insights.  All your combined knowledge regarding Camaros specifically is much appreciated.  I wish I knew 1/10 of what you guys know.

My 1969 Z/28 may be in need of a new transmission given the worst case scenario.  When I was driving it this morning it seemed to be much rougher than normal, sort of like the tires were out of balance or some kind of vibration was happening.  When I went to put the tranny into  first gear to pull away from a stop sign it wouldn't go into gear, any gear.  It was like the shifter was hung up in the neutral position.  I finally was able to get it to go into the position where reverse is, but the car would not move.  When the tow truck driver got there and couldn't winch it onto the flat bed he said that it was stuck in gear.  After fooling around with the linkages from under the car and with my riding in the car and depressing the clutch he was able to get it loaded onto his truck.  My car is currently at the transmission shop, but they haven't got back to me yet with any findings. 
I know that the current tranny in my car is not the original one.  As far as I know it is a M21 from 1966.  I know my car came originallly with a Muncie M21 from the factory.  Now for my questions as I wanted to give as much info as I could.

1.  If it is recommended that I get a new or rebuilt transmission should I get another M21?  Since I cannot get the original one would now be a good time to put a M22 in my car?  I have been thinking about doing this for a couple of years now.
2.  Where is the best place to look into a new M21 or M22?  I have been thinking about Medatronics?
Thanks for any and all input.

Yeah, that's exactly what I'm talking about.  Seems most modern day shops can handle all the new electronic gadgetry but don't have any idea of how to service carbs, non-electronic distributors, valves, etc.

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. 
38  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. 
41  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.
43  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.

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. 
45  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.
