Trans-Am Camaros / Unusual valve covers and intake ??
« on: August 04, 2018, 03:54:35 PM »


A fella on another forum (in Melbourne, AUS) found the following shown parts at a swap and purchased them and hasn't been able to find any information about them or when they were manufactured.   Both the valve covers and the intake strike me as possibly being for 'Trans Am' type cars.   Have any of you fellas seen such? Or have any information about them?

Decoding/Numbers / 15x6 JK Rallye wheel stamped K 1 0 12 29
« on: July 21, 2018, 02:41:48 PM »
During a recent cleanup of piles of parts, I found what I think is the 4th wheel from my '68 Z28; the other three were stamped   K 1 8 5  20  DF  (as normal), but this one has a stamp of     K  1  0  12  29   (no app code).   What I *suspect* is that this is a 12-29-1970 dated replacement 15x6 rallye wheel for several different cars (which all had the same size rallye on them), thus no application code.  I've never seen an old rallye wheel without an app code before, so I'm guessing.   The backspace for this wheel is 3-1/2" ..

Is my guess a good one?   Is the reason for no app code that the wheel is a replacement for multi apps?  Is this common to find wheels like this?

Mild Modifications / Hone-o-drive unit on ebay...
« on: July 14, 2018, 12:24:56 PM »
I haven't seen one of these for sale in a long long time...  Back when our cars were new, these were the way that one could have their cake (acceleration gears) and eat it too (and drive the car on the highway)... :)

« on: January 17, 2018, 02:51:56 PM »
I've never been there, but I've heard so much about it over the years from many people.  I think there are a few here on CRG who have mentioned racing there...

One of my buddies just sent me this link to a BBC video which I'd never seen.. Finally having an hour to watch it thru, I LOVED it (being a car nut), and I have a good friend who owns two early Cobras...

Restoration / Reproduction 69 Endura bumpers available?
« on: May 25, 2017, 08:15:26 PM »
Just got an email from Heartbeat City Camaro announcing and praising their 'new' repro endura bumper for 1969 Camaros.    James says of this new part...  "We just received the new 1969 Camaro Endura Bumpers which are one of the nicest reproductions or any part we have ever seen. They are exact reproductions in every regard of thse original GM bumper. "

It seems to be packaged well with all necessary parts including bumper brackets and jack jaw even!

Priced at $699, doesn't seem too bad...  but it doesn't qualify for their discounts..  but gets their shipping charge, plus 1.25% for shipping insurance, and an extra $25 for 'oversize'... 

If anyone has purchased, or purchases, one of these it would be interesting to all us '69 owners as to the total cost shipped, and the quality of the part (and how close to original it really is)..   if the part is as good as he claims, then it might be a good deal in spite of the cost based on the number of issues with the original parts out there....?

What do you fellas think?

Just a short note to thank the people who submit to the Monthly Camaro Features..  It's not just Bryon and Steve who appreciate the photos and articles (we all do!).   I especially like the submissions which include more than a single photo and a 'story' about the acquisition/work on the car by the owner..   to wit the article submitted by Bill Foos this month on his '69 Z28..  a great looking Z28 in an uncommon color...  I love it... :)
