and you have that one in your garage??   Smiley

Putting Z-28 emblems on a Camaro convertible is not a lot different than putting them on a Camaro coupe....   If they add a strong 302 engine, the suspension, brakes, Munciie etc, at least they will handle and drive like a Z28..  (but of course most don't)...  350 autos with drum brakes also get lots of Z28 emblems...  (yes, that's a pet peeve of mine).  Smiley

Of course, that car *might* have been a true Z28 with the top converted to a convertible, done at the same time the 400 CI/TH400 was installed..... and they jsut didn't wanna go to the trouble of removing those pesky Z28 emblems??  .....    Smiley

Maybe all that (about the 'Caution Fan' stickers/labels) just shows that either:
1)  FORD really did have a better idea?  or
2)  Lots of people feel a need for a reminder about the Fan?

2301  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Camaro passenger door mirror location on: December 08, 2011, 01:47:59 PM
Thank you Ed and William for the information.   I have an original '69 Z28 (w/factory remote driver's mirror).. I *really* wanted a RH mirror when I was driving it regularly in the '70's, but was told there was not one for the RH side *originally*.   
How are the RH mirrors (of any type) judged in the '69 original classes??
2302  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 Z-28 CRANK on: December 08, 2011, 12:53:54 PM
That's what I thought.    So what was the PN for the '68 crankshaft?    If I'm not mistaken the original poster (who had tried to sell the crank over on the TC website) indicated a purchase date from Chevrolet of summer '68 (which would most likely have been a '68 crankshaft)..  Is it clear from the previous posts that it was a small journal crankshaft that he had?    Is the '68 and '69 Z28 cranikshafts the same, with the same PN?
2303  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Camaro passenger door mirror location on: December 08, 2011, 12:47:19 PM
IMO, having two mirrors NOT located in the same relative locations on the doors would look funky too.   I've been under the impression that there wre no passenger side mirrors available (from the factory) in '69....   True or not?    Am I correct in assuming that any mirror mounted to the passenger door by a dealer would have been the LH mirror just mounted on the RH side?
2304  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 Z-28 CRANK on: December 08, 2011, 12:20:31 PM
Is the '68 'MO' motor crank the same PN?
2305  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Clue It Was GM employee car new on: December 02, 2011, 11:44:58 AM
I really doubt anyone other than perhaps a plant manager or someone very high in mgt, could implement something like that... especially for a 'cavalier'....  Smiley.
I've heard of examples of 'special built' cars, assembled on the line;  the most famous I know of is the 50 Millionth GM car (a selected '55 Chevy BelAir HT which was painted 'gold' color, and also had many parts actually plated in gold (even the shocks, etc were gold plated).  There was also the special Corvette built for Zora Duntov's retirement, and special cars for Bill Mitchell...  but for all those 'special car', the planning had all the parts available on the line at the right place and right time (and we can imagine the $cost of doing something like that)..

It would be very interesting to hear any stories John Z might have to shed more light on such circumstances .  Smiley
2306  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Ebay BBC SS/RS car LOS cowl tag on: November 29, 2011, 02:02:33 PM
so for the example provided, November 1966, 11A car with A638...

"It also explains the 282, 282 nd. body started that day.   My 11A LOS built Coupe has
A 638, meaning it was built on the first day of Nov. in 66, it was the 638 th. Body started on that day.(all Models)"

Since the 1st of November is a Tuesday, the first day of that work week was actually the 31October.   Does the A638 actually refer to the 638th car on Tuesday?  or the 638th car of Monday (31Oct)Huh   Basically the question boils down to how the 'weeks of a month' and production days within a week or month are defined..  Maybe JohnZ knows the answer to this?

2307  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Chambered Exhaust Hangers - Assembly line VS Reproduction on: November 28, 2011, 01:07:53 PM
You guys are showing me (again) how I screwed up when I didn't buy the chambered pipe hangars back in the 70's when I purchased the chambered exhaust system parts from GM... and to top off how ignorant I was, I didn't know at the time that my 9C car couldn't have come with them....  we live and we learn!  Smiley
2308  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Mat cut for Spare tire hold down on: November 28, 2011, 01:00:58 PM
The photos I posted earlier are from my original mat, BUT.. it is torn in several places, so it is possible that although it *appeared* to me that one of the tears (on the upper right of the oval) was a cut, it could just as easily have been a 'straight tear'.  I did not remove the mat to examine it more closely as I probably would have torn it more...  I'd love to see a photo of an original 69 trunk mat in better condition than my own so I'd know for sure...  so if someone has one, please post it for ius all...   Smiley
2309  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Gas tank date codes on: November 14, 2011, 12:36:43 PM
I checked mine last night.   I've an original 09C Z28....   
The gas tank code is  5  70 .    I was thinking it must have been repllaced before I purchased it in 1976, if it wasn't made until 1970??    but I notice several other 08 and 09 cars with 70 dates. 

So how does this code work for the extended-run late '69 cars??
2310  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: How to repair plastic/vinyl air dam on: November 13, 2011, 03:54:15 PM
It has a part number but I couldn't tell you what it is. They were used on the Trans-Am race cars. I got that from a friend whose boss' brother worked on a Trans-Am team.

It's possible that these panels were *added* to certain small black T/A cars (by some race teams) for aerodynamic purposes....?  to 'slick' up the bottom of the chassis?
