Thanks again for the info you do remember.  Unfortunately the original owner does not remember the name of the next owner who drag raced the car.

Thanks for the info.  It would be nice to imagine that the car you remember is my current car.  Do you remember how it was painted?  Was it the factory Fathom Green with the white rally stripes, looking like a normal street driven 1969 Z/28?  Or did it have sponsorship lettering, non-factory paint, etc.?

That I'm not sure about.  I don't have any pics of the car as it was when drag raced.  I currently own the car now.  The original owner, who got rid of it in 1972, told me that the next owner after him drag raced it.  I'm just trying to find out any previous history that I can.  I do know it doesn't have it's original factory rally wheels now.

Did anyone here grow up in or live in Southern California, the greater Los Angeles area, in the 1970's?  If you were into drag racing as a participant or spectator do you remember a 1969 Z/28, Fathom Green with white stripes, RS option, flat hood, no spoilers being drag raced from around 1972 on?  Thank you.

81  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: 69 owners with "Smooth" steering wheels please check in on: July 14, 2008, 12:07:07 PM
I caught a typo.  The interior is 711, not 712; it is a standard black interior.  Sorry.
82  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: 69 owners with "Smooth" steering wheels please check in on: July 14, 2008, 11:44:25 AM
I was able to check my '69's interior over this weekend.  Although I am not the original owner I am almost positive that the interior is all original due to the age it is showing, and I have verified that the engine, trans, and rear end are all original.  It has the Z/28 option and Rally Sport also.  The steering wheel is definitely a plastic "smooth" one; I could find no trace of "pebbling" anywhere on it.  The build date is 01C.  The interior is 712 black standard.  It has a console with the wood grain and also wood grain on the lower left part of the dash where the light and wiper switches are and where the radio control dials are.  The steering wheel has wood grain with a rs emblem in chrome.  It has no wood grain where the ashtray and glove box doors are.  It does have a grab handle above the dash and chrome trim on the accellerator, brake, and clutch pedals.  Hope this info helps.

Paul,

     Thanks for the link.  The article certainly explains the procedure in great detail.

I know the answer to this question might seem easy to some, but I don't know the answer.  I've read that the solid lifters on the 302 need to be adjusted every so often.  How does one know when they need adjusting?  Is it the valve lash that is actually adjusted or are there other adjustments needed to be made also?  I've read that this adjustment has to be made with the engine running and the valve covers of course off, is this correct?  Who would one trust to make these adjustments where they knew what they were doing?  I only drive my Z/28 about 600 miles a year.  I've owned it for 12 years and have never had any adjustments made to the valves, lifters, etc. 
Thank you for any help and advice.

I can only remember reading in more than one place that the Baldwin-Motion Performance Phase III Camaros with one of their Baldwin-Motion drivers were guaranteed to run sub 12's at at least 120 mph.  I don't know if this was with slicks, open headers, etc.  Rumor has it that Baldwin-Motion never had to refund any purchaser their money.

Thanks for the info and suggestion.

Thanks Kevin for the site referral.  That's where I first saw that a Gledhill Chevrolet license frame still existed.  I wonder how a frame from a California dealership ended up all the way back in Pennsylvania.  Hopefully there are more out there.

I am trying to find original license plate frames from Fred Gledhill Chevrolet, circa 1960's, that was located in Wilmington, Calif.  I currently own an original 1969 Z/28 that was purchased from there in Feb., 1969 and would like to add the dealership frames to add to it's originality.  Thank you.
If you find a good source for frames (lot of plate collectors - not so many frame collectors) I'd be interested in an contact.  I have been trying for the last 4 1/2 years to locate dealer plates for a couple of cars (admittedly, I have not been searching continuously but in spurts).

The usual suggestions are swap meets and Ebay...I've found both of those to be sources that are very dry for this sort of thing
  I'll let you know if I find a contact for dealer license plate frames.
