You are right, it is a good looking car (but I'm not a fan of white interiors), and original documentation is with it..  BUT...

The engine app code (deck) and VIN stampings do NOT look original or correct to me...  

This appears to be a restamped block; maybe the original blew up and they 'made' one to match the car and the PTP??  
- The pad has been decked (can see machine marks), and the location of the stamping doesn't appear to be in the normal factory location.  
- The VIN stamping is not similar to other factory VIN stamps in that location that I've seen.

John's racing record indicates that car was 'entered' by Preston Hood Chevrolet'...  Several of the T/A races he ran were entered that same way... Preston Hood Chevrolet.  I assume that means the car was owned by Preston Hood Chevrolet..
PS.  He finished 24th in that race at Sebring in '71.
33  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 - Y-1 (Butternut with White top) - Anyone have any pictures? on: April 08, 2014, 08:30:17 AM
Phillip you crack me up, you are on the Butternut yellow, like Gary is a nut about the hugger orange....
I got my drivers license about the same time the 1967 Camaro came out, so I was "born and bred" in that patch.
Look HERE to see a list of the First Gen colors I like!

I agree with you Phillip!  I Love them all too.. Smiley

34  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Will 15x8 with 235/60/15 BFG Radial T/A fit on front of 1969 Camaro? on: April 08, 2014, 07:46:18 AM
I had essentially that configuration on my Z28 back in the 70's (F60-15 TA's on Corvette 8" wheels).   They scrubbed pretty badly on hard turns or especially turns with bumps; the tire caught on one of my wheel well trims during one such turn/bump and bent it... Sad
I replaced the bolts holding the inner wheel well to the fender with round head allens, and still they scrubbed.. so I removed them and went back to 7" Z wheels.

PS.  But they looked 'great' if you aren't going to actually drive your car!!    Smiley

Besides the wealth of information, and the great Camaro owners I have met, I have to think this is a great site, since I haven't been kicked off yet.... Cheesy

..  but..  it's quite early yet..  Smiley
36  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Another HO Z28.. on: April 07, 2014, 10:23:15 PM
There may have been some blocks that got out of the factory without the VIN being stamped on them, BUT I suspect there are many many more that do have the VIN stamped, but the owners haven't been able to detect it (as yet).. the stamps on the rough block casting surface are extremely difficult to see/read even in the best of conditions, and in a car, it's practically impossible...

Bullitt...    you have one more chance to own a High Output Z28...   Smiley

" Long may you run "......Neil Young ,sorta sums it up Smiley     Probably all guys attached to their old iron get a little choked up, if you've owned them for decades ,they become time stamps.

Thanks Bentley!   If I've ever heard that song, I'd either paid no attention to the words, or I'd forgotten it...  Nice song that described a part of all our lives from back then.. Smiley

HI Phillip...   sorry I wasn't able to make it this Spring, due to my 'co-driver' dropping out, and being unable to find someone else from here to share the driving..  Smiley   I hope you all had a great time, and the rain skirted the area...?  Smiley   I called a friend up there on Thursday, who said the weather was great that day..

I emailed him for some pics. Coincidently he is located pretty close to where I found my last good deal about this time last year.

Once you owned an HO Z, your red one would be for sale.. Smiley   Any idea what you'd want for it?  Smiley

41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Is this a belated April Fools Joke? on: April 05, 2014, 09:29:08 AM
You haven't bought it yet?Huh
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: No April Fools Cars? on: April 04, 2014, 09:10:11 AM
It's really embarrassing if the owner turns out to be from TN or AL..  Smiley
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 'Questionable' or FAKE cars.... Hemmings article on: April 03, 2014, 08:45:48 AM
There was an interesting article in the Hemmings Daily email today concerning an italian car which seemingly had a different data plate on it, which sold at auction for $332,000, then was negated due to questions, and the car finally seized by German authorities to resolve the issue.   Just a prime example of some similar things we've seen and heard about in Camaro circles the past few years...   worth reading.

Some Camaro 'fakers' need to read and take heed (not that there's any here on CRG), but I'm sure we all know of, or have heard of one or more.

   Jon, I had made some contacts with GM Canada when I was working for a Chev/Olds dealership in Toronto in fact Mo Carter was the general manager there before he acquired his own dealership in Hamilton .............. Anyway my GM contacts were able to help me out in a somewhat limited way with whatever they could.
      However I have heard rumors of GM engineers handing out small parts like carburetor jets axle shafts and such at the track but they never approached me with any goodies but I do remember Mark Donohue burning out his ignition wiring harness at Mid Ohio and would you believe I was the only one at the track with a spare harness. I was expecting Roger to come over to pick it up but he used Mark Schwein as an intermediary instead........Come to think of it I never got paid for that part.

You should have told Roger to come himself and pay you up front..  Smiley
