General Discussion / Good '480' distributors??
« on: July 28, 2017, 01:24:02 PM »
There are a couple of 480 distributors on ebay today that appear to be *real ones*...  IMO...  What do you fellas think?     9D2   and   9A10

and _trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D45726%26meid%3Dbf7a6027ea1b40a489e17eadeccbfd40%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D222593234725

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... :)

Garage Talk / Yenko Chevrolet Dealership info and their ads... :)
« on: February 14, 2017, 03:27:51 AM »
A post was made on another forum ( which detailed a lot of information on the Yenko dealership and some of their ads of the times and their cars, most of which I've never seen before (being from the south)..  but it's very interesting to me, and perhaps to some of you..  :)    Lots of photos also, so I'm just going to post the link...

I think you will all enjoy this very interesting article about the deLorenzo family and their relationship with GM execs that we all revere, as well as some of Tony (jr) racing exploits... :)


If anyone needs a '58' dated 9204 booster ('69 model year) needs restoration... only $40 so far... and ends soon.

Garage Talk / Misrepresentation of automobiles can be $$costly$$...
« on: November 14, 2016, 02:37:32 PM »
Here is a case of a collector car salesman being ordered to pay $110,000 for misrepresentation of a collector car ('GTO)... Maybe spreading such news will help to alleviate some of this in our hobby...

Garage Talk / Veteran's Day!
« on: November 11, 2016, 02:18:25 PM »
We are fortunate enough to have the luxury of enjoying our 'classic cars', at least partially thru the efforts of our military veterans over the years.  Today is Veteran's Day...  Display your FLAG...  ( I Just remembered to put mine out).. :)    USAF ('68-'72)


This is all the information I have on this car...

When I purchased my '69 in April 1976, I learned about the prior owner (before the seller), but when contacting that prior owner who had purchased the car (almost new) for his 16 yr old daughter, I found out almost nothing... he either didn't remember, or didn't care about passing anything along... so after 40 yrs, I tried again earlier this year and found out that 'father' had passed, but found a son who had the same name.   As it turned out, I'd never been able to locate/talk to the daughter owner, but in talking to the son (also a car nut) he told me many stories about his sister having the car, her having a bf who was a car nut and camaro owner, and himself (a Mustang owner) and all their attempts to set up races between all the cars, until their father put a stop to that! :)   But he also remembered where the car had been purchased (local Chevy dealer at the time), AND that the original owner was a young policeman!   So since then, I've been trying to identify a policeman contact who had been on the force in the 1970 timeframe!   Well, this week, I found one, who is also a car nut, and who still consults with the HPD... after talking to him yesterday morning, he spent the day calling a dozen of his old contacts...  he told me last night that he WOULD find the original owner for me!  (although it's a possibility that the orig owner passed away earlier this year)..   I've sent him photos of my car to help 'old memory recollections'.. :)   Besides identifying the original owner (a huge goal of mine for  along time), I'm also holding a tiny hope that one of those owners *might* have hung onto the PTP...  :)

So THIS has been a good weekend, that has me smiling today, in spite of my soreness from setting fence posts yesterday!

and Darrell:  How was that Texas A&M game yesterday??   Another reason to smile?  :)
