I'm headed back out there today; maybe I'll see you.. but I don't know how I'd recognize you... Smiley

Yes, only one vendor selling 'used' Camaro parts, and Camaro Central and the Right Stuff was there as well.  Tomorrow might be better...?
but there were a lot of verynice Camaro's being judged in the Legends judging..  great to talk to some of the CRG guys in there...  Smiley
1698  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Parts meet at Frederick? on: June 21, 2013, 07:13:22 AM
Hey guys.  I'm here at Frederick, prepariing to head out to the show site, but since I haven't attended here before, I'm wondering if there's a swap meet associated?  I brought a few parts that are *extra* to me, including a good '68 Muncie M20, an NOS '67 grill, a Holley 3910 carb rebuilt, some original 14" rallye trim rings, a pr of '67-8 tail light housing assemblies (nice original), and repro '309' Master Cylinder (new).  I'm hoping I can find someone who can use some of this stuff..   I'm at the Holiday Inn Express rm 228 (white 2012 Malibu w/AL plates) if you are around here and want to take a look at these parts..

In my opinion, exhaust systems/mufflers made of stainless steel sound 'tinny', compared to a regular steel or aluminized exhaust.  I believe it is due to the fact that the stainless typically used is lighter gauge (thinner) and thus has higher natural frequency..  As one of my friends once said 'it sounds like a fat man farting into a tin can'..   Smiley

I hope I can meet some of you fellas and put some faces with the names here in CRG... Smiley    I'll be there in a red GMC truck with Alabama plates, staying at the Holiday Inn Express, and I'll probably bring a few extra Camaro parts with me to trade/peddle..
1701  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 Camaro Engine Identification on: June 16, 2013, 12:06:07 PM
You could certainly that all indications are that it IS the original engine, and you have the statement from the 2nd owner (of 40 yrs) that it was the original engine.   Even though you cannot PROVE that it IS the original engine, it would be more difficult for anyone else to PROVE that it isn't..  Smiley

Based on the evidence you've stated, I'd feel good about it being the original engine.

you'd probably best trade it to someone who wants the Jet Hot look.. trade for a decent stock one to 'recoat'....

1703  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Shock Absorber Nut on: June 15, 2013, 08:26:06 PM
No Problem Bob..   I'm leaving Thursday morning before dawn to drive the 700 miles to Frederick; saves me about 100 miles(est) rather than Carlisle .. Smiley
PS.  I did enjoy seeing some of the other cars, but the main reason I went to the GM Nats before was the Camaros..
1704  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z exhaust and smog systems on: June 15, 2013, 04:14:44 PM
I read somewhere the '65-'69 Corvette side-mount system [chambered also] was about a 50 hp hit on a BB.
I think I recall JohnZ saying that chambered on a Z28 had about a 7 hp impact compared to the transverse muffler system.
Note:  '65-'67 Corvette side pipes were of a similar chambered design. The 68 Corvette did not offer a sidepipe option.  The '69 Corvette sidepipe system (single year offer) was not of the same chambered design.

He (Bob) may not be aware that the Camaro Nationals, that was held at Carlisle in conjunction wthi the GM Nationals up until a couple years ago, is NOW held at Frederick, MD on the same weekend; last time I went to the joint show, there were a ton more Camaros than all others combined (at least that's the way it seemed)...  I would think there would be a lot more Camaros at Frederick than at Carlisle given the situation!
1706  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z exhaust and smog systems on: June 14, 2013, 09:01:27 PM
so Gardner offers all those options??? depending on when your car was made?
1707  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z exhaust and smog systems on: June 14, 2013, 02:06:40 PM
Yes these parts would be the best, but finding 46 year old parts such as exhaust system parts in excellent original condition is near impossible.  Also the fact that some of the pieces on original exh systems were welded in place.  Would be hard to do on a finished car? 

The Gardner systems are far beyond anything else on the market.  I have installed dozens and never an issue.  And, no I don't get paid for saying this.  They just make quality parts.

I sold an NOS chambered system a few months ago, that I purchased in the mid 70's from GM, I'm sure I wasn't the only person who bought one and put it up.   At the same time I purchased the chambered system for 'someday use', I also bought the standard exhaust system and put it on my car, cutting the exhaust pipe for installation of headers.  That system is still very solid and good, but to reinstall my manifolds, I need new exhaust pipes.  Can anyone recommend as a source for 'most original' front exhaust pipes?
1708  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Z exhaust and smog systems on: June 14, 2013, 08:11:34 AM
I would *THINK* in any judging for originality, that original GM parts would score considerably higher than ANY replacement/reproduction part, such as Gardners....

'tree huggers' don't PASS the laws.. our government does, and WE let them.   If we make as much noise as the few tree huggers, we can keep this crap to a minimum... Most of the environmental laws and regs are born in ignorance.... and allowed to exist due to apathy.
1710  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Suggestions Wanted For 1969 Camaro Custom Paint Design on: June 12, 2013, 10:58:04 PM
they would build their customer whatever the customer wanted... if it could be bolted or sprayed on *S*

I still have some old car mags from '68 or so, describing/testing the Baldwin Motion Camaro, I still remember reading their 0-60 times and being disbelieving.. Smiley
