Indy, I know, that firebird is cool. The guy went crazy....FOR REAL And I remember was committed to a crazy house. Don't know what ever happened to him. And another friend of mine got the firebird. He has 34 cars. He is a wrecker, so he tows these old cars off properties, then titles them in his name. Legally, with waiting periods and such. The family bus. has been going since the 40's. Lot's of treasures. Lot's of family history, so the whole valley calls him for towing. The car I got coming I have wanted since the summer of 1971. Test drove one just like it with my Dad when I turned 16, and he said no, TOO FAST!! So now about 38 years later...BINGO!! I will share when it's in my garage in my name.....maybe. It's going to take every penny I have, and every collectible I own. But again, it all comes around. Then maybe recover and go for the 68 Z/28. Who knows. Then the next year the firebird....ha ha  I could probably get the firebird now, but need the dough for the big deal first. Ok, bed time for bonzo....D

I need to apologize.....I did see all the VIN's in the orphan's section. That has alot of VIN's. Yes they are for another reason, but that is it. SORRY everyone for being a Richard Head....You'll get it.....think about it.......
I have decided to buy one of the cars I found. Would love to get one of the others, but can't plug them both in, a little to much dough. The other car is a 68' Z/28 Corvette Bronze with original paint and ALL there......Has Protect-O-Plate. Bought originally by a guy I met for 11K!! Drives around fine but needs resto. Going to try to get it next year if I can. And one of the other cars is a 67' Firebird 400HO. All matching in a barn a mile from my house. I went to H.S. with the old owner. I have not seen the car since 1979! It is white and a 4-speed car. Not sure if rear is Posi. And get this...It's a convertible! It's all there but need's a quarter and a resto. Don't know much about Firebirds. Anyway, I am selling all my Collectibles Coca Cola, Vintage Tin, Lionel, Antique's, Grand Piano, Music Eq. and my 2006 Mustang G.T. Bummer, only has 14K miles on it. But hey, it all comes around, they made more then one..........Danny

Well I started calling all my buddies that have classic Camaro's. Z/28's, R/S, Chevelle's, GTO's, JL8 one block from my house etc. etc. I have 6 so far. 6 VIN's without ANY personal info. Imagine that. Next Camaro Club meeting I'll get 25 more. Then down the road to Pomona for another 100 in one afternoon. I'm gonna wear my wireless mic and recorder. And just walk along and describe the car and talk to myself until I have hundreds. So there.....Ok, now I'm not upset anymore.. ha ha......Danny

Hey Indy69, I here what your saying, however I have more then one car I want to check. And I am wanting to check if they are even listed in this Database, not just where they fall in the build sequence. I DON'T want them added as of yet. Therefore I can't list the VIN's. Hopefully somebody can make this happen. I was going to print it all out the day I seen it, but figured it was easy to access....Thanx.......Danny 
335  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Surviving 69' Z/28's in the registry, or Data Base CRG dudes? on: January 14, 2010, 03:52:48 PM
Crap, well I know I seen a nice long list of VIN's that someone wanted at, to look something up. He wanted to see where HIS car fell in the build sequence. I don't want personal info, just the VIN's of the cars that are in the database, that have survived. I am positive I seen it HERE. VIN"s are nothing, I can go to the biggest car show in the country and walk around and collect 500 off the dash plate's before lunch....right?
Could someone tell me what it is I seen? And possibly give an explaination......Thanx......Danny

Could someone please send me the current VIN's for the surviving 1969 Z/28's. Or actually ALL first generation documented VIN's. I seen it on here a few days ago and I can't find it. It was a nice long list of cars currently on record. Want to check it with some cars I found and find out if they are in the registry. May want the non z/28 cars also if there is such a list. Thanx.........Danny
337  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Why is there some Z28's with 3908326 Rear Proportioning Valves and Some without on: December 31, 2009, 11:21:56 PM
Pex68, you are correct. I forgot about that. Knowing the plant will help in determining possible install start and stop times of the valves etc. etc. Why can't Mr. J.M. at CHP and CRG get the info for all the cars documented so far? Just wondering why that can't place...........Danny

Hey Dave thanx for the info. Look's like we are on our way to gett'in some more good info. And as Kurt mentioned I also believe it is Kelsey Hayes that made them. And I am assuming also that the little "R" does stand for rear. The bolt's that hold them down are a different story. They are specific and as far as I can tell not your basic fender or common body bolt. There was I think 3 manufactures of bolts. But not sure about the one that made the bolt that held these valves to the frame. Maybe somebody else knows for sure. But lets not get off track. Still need people to chime in on their cars and these dang valves. Over and out for now.......Danny

Hey Steve, I can't tell ya anything about any other Camaro's. Only Z/28's and not past 1969. Any info is of course useful. But I sure would like to be able to have someone contact all registered owners of first Gen Z/28's and ask about the valve. Got a good start here I guess.......Danny

Hey Blackout Steve, I was just talking about the Z28 of the first Generation. But I think it would be great if we could have every first gen Camaro chime in. Cause we know alot of big blocks were supposed to have them and many others. I am sure this thread will die off long before we have the info we need. But a guy could dream I guess.........Danny

So there it is, I guess that's the latest. Just frustrating. And as some of you know, I collect these valves for fun. I know....I know....I think I am up to about 20 or so. In fact that reminds me, I need to get John Z and or CRG a new front and back picture of all of them. So if ya have any of these valves LMK. I may purchase them from ya.
Sure would be nice to know if Jerry M. kept track of all the cars he inspected, had the valve or not. AND what the julian date was on each valve. Maybe he did. Anyway to go to the registry of all these cars on the list for 67' 68' and 69'.....and email or contact them and ask? Takes about 30 seconds. Not like ya have to take any components off to find out. Then at least we could have the info on ALL remaining cars? I talked to some guy a while back and he said he wouldn't own a car if the valve date went farther back then 35 days from build date. What's the deal with that? I have seen them on original 23,000 mile cars with full doc's and it was 62 days back. Even FIREZ mentions his car at 54 days. I think everybody should add the date along with the info. Good idea??...Danny

Hey Guys, anybody know why there is some car's that are equipped with the rear Proportioning valve and some car's that are not? You know, the one on the drivers side frame rail. I see lot's of car's with and without. The old story used to be that the car's that got it had A/C. And so the extra weight needed to be controled so the rear wheels would not lock up during hard braking. But that's on SS big block's and such. Z/28's never had the A/C on any of the 28,103 first gen cars. Why do I keep seeing some cars with them and some without? I met a guy back east who has 6 Z/28's all original. He might even hang out on this site. He said 4 of his car's have it and 2 don't. I just seen another car certified by Jerry M. in PA and it's ALL there, but has no valve. I'm gett'in pissed. What the hell is the deal with these valves. I also have seen them on some 68's but not other's. And if a 68' doesn't have it it scares me into think'in it ain't the real deal. Could Chevrolet really come up with this system and then just say to the guys on the assembly line... put them on when ya want? I have seen probably a hundred of 69's with it, and just as many without. Jerry never really decided to put this info in his book's??? It even show's it in the assembly manuals. Ok, I have rambled enough Huh.......Danny

That sounds good Jerry. The car is MEAN! What thrill. Can't wait to see more launching and full down the track video. Danny
344  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: '67 Z28 At Cecil County on: September 15, 2009, 06:19:08 PM
Hey Jerry that was pretty sweet. I am not complaining by any means, but I wonder why the camera operator didn't zoom in on the car as it went down the track? Again, not complaining. Just would have been nice to see the finish and the time on the light board. Just hit the zoom button as ya go. Just a thought as things got pretty small near the middle and end. To hard to see.....Danny
345  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 3908326 Rear Proportioning Valves Pictures on: July 13, 2009, 11:01:18 PM
Hey Kurt, your right I clicked on it. I guess all this time I have been having fun just doing it in my head. I better check my math eh? Alot of times I also look at calendars on line and count it up. But I will use that from here on out.

Yes I also noticed that your 69' valve didn't have a large " E " What I need is about 50 from each year. I'll probably be dead by then but maybe it's worth a try. I better will them all to CRG to keep the dream alive. ha ha       Still interested in what more people think on the subjset and what other info can be added on these valves........

Glad ya got the picture....Danny
