Got a reply back on my order 1096 today, saying no information on VIN 124677L117xxx  Sad  Anyone else have a problem with early 67 LOS documents?

Mine isn't that early (12437L139xxx) but did not have a problem.
My VIN is124377L113XXX , I had no problems, have had mine since June 3 rd.

3/8 was the number that always stuck in my head...
I agree with 3/8 in., at least that's what they advertise them as.  As for the measurement from the Bead to the Red stripe, I think that varies with the size of tire.  Maybe even brand of tire.

Got my Report today.  Not the news I was hoping for, just added another piece to the puzzle.
What was the news, Mike?

Mike
Mike;  Zepelak Chevrolet Inc.,  Elmhurst, IL.  We thought it was sold at Pela Chevrolet in Rock City, IL. as there was a dealer sticker on the back.  Maybe it was resold there as a used car at some point.  I did another thread here seeking some info.;

34  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Any Chicago area members heard of Zepelak Chevrolet Inc. in Elmhurst on: June 03, 2014, 03:15:42 PM
This is all the info. I have been able to find so far. 
A:  Zepelak’s Chevrolet opened on Roosevelt Road, ˝ mile west of York Street in July 1963.  A full-page advertisement in the Elmhurst Press (July 18, 1963) urged readers to “See Us At The Newest – The Largest – The Most Beautiful – The Greatest Chevrolet Dealership…ZEPELAK’S".
                         Any help would be greatly appreciated!   Thanks!

Praying for you Danny.  There is strength in numbers.

I believe the current files we are working on were submitted around 5/7, we should beat the 30 day turnarounds we committed to considerably but there is a NCRS regional next week and I have a vacation coming up in a few weeks so it may not be significantly quicker than 30 days.

Now, I'm gettin' a little more excited.  I put my order in very early on 5/8.  Just interesting to see if mine jibes with what I think the history might be.  AGAIN, I gotta send Kudos to Roy and his group.  Thank you.

I think by 65/66 complete Hoods could be had.  I hate to say the dirty word but (Ford) Thunderbolt had a factory Teardrop hood.  come to think of it I think the 63 Full-size 427's also had 'em.

Maybe I should rephrase that: I didn't realize there were aftermarket tear drop hoods for Chevrolets back then.
The Tear drop Hood (& scoops) was one the most popular in the mid-60's.

Guys, did Yenko ever convert a black exterior 69 camaro with Yenko graphics? See reply #17
Vince,,, No, Don Yenko never built a Black 69 Yenko.  But, there was  dealer in Chicago, Douglas that had bought and sold several Yenkos.  Douglas struck a deal with Don Yenko to just purchase the Decals and emblem put them on COPOs that he ordered. Story goes that Douglas built 2 each of Black with White, Red with White and White with Black Stripes.  One of which was White with Black stripes with Black Vinyl roof.

avnut,,,here's pic. I promised of the tailpipes.  You can also see here clearance, car is sitting on the ground.  As I said before, the Headers are the low spot, which is pretty normal.  I also remembered, I cut about 3/4 in. off the front end of the Pass. side tailpipe where it goes into muffler to get more clearance so it wouldn't hit the Mono-leaf spring.

avnut,,,I got the system (PYPES SGF 70) from JEGS store on EBay. ($513.98 free shippn. in '12)  Summit still has same system $515.99 and free shipping.  Did either Darrell or I mention this system is stainless?  With the limited use the car gets (and pampered) it should out last me.  And yes, this system is "Header back".  If you don't want to use Headers, you have to buy the downpipe separate.
Darrell,,,I had no labor expense.   My Grandfather owned a Gas station and my brother and I worked our way through High School there.  Installed many an Exhaust system in my day.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New guy to forum with Old first Gen on: May 21, 2014, 10:34:04 PM
avnut,,,I used the complete PYPES system without any clearance issues either as far as fitment or Ground clearance.  I'm going to post a pic., notice I have installed Sub-frame connectors, and the PYPES do not hang lower than the connectors. The lowest part of the Exhaust is the Headers, which is not unusual. I will try to get a pic. in the next couple of days of how I did the tailpipes (Bologna sliced)  BTW, I have over 4,500 miles on this exhaust with no issues.  As an idea of how much ground clearance I have, I took this pic. just laying on the Garage floor.
