 Since All Motion cars were special built,and customers ordered differnet stuff you could see a varitey of hoods or paint schemes.Not all the Motion cars got fiberglass hoods or radical paint...It was something considered too flashy for a few low key street racers who had performance more than looks on their mind! The only red 68 camaro known was a very plain jane with no spoilers no stripes other than factory and steel SS hood.Just a 427 with minor up grades and you got a Motion camaro that look like all the other 396 cars!The 69 camaro phase 3 stripe is the coolest paint scheme for me and as Mark pointed out the rear spoiler was custom made with 3 stands was used for 69 cars.Motion got really noticed in the 70s and started the pointed side stripes so what ever turns your crank will be just as creative as anything back in the day!

The modern cob webbing from Alsa are limited colors and I think no hugger orange or daytona yellow is avaliable yet ?Maybe somebody will let us know? So many opinions that don't matter at all...decide what you like and do it.Plenty of custom paints for sure TCP Global is a good source..I was painting metalflake when it was all silver..guess what year?

 So many combos to choose from.......one thing I'd check is to make sure you can get the webbing as it can only be done with one flavor paint...and it ain't real easy to find ! PM me and I might be able to help you.

 Glad to see the cool 70s are not dead..when a little cob webbing or vreeble were thought radical custom painting..Metalflake paint jobs were popular also. Everybody used Lacquer so painting in the shade was done often by those looking to make your car differnet than the 100s cruising the streets. The custom "Foose " jobs today don't do anything for me...matter of fact I'd be pissed if Chip were to screw up my Camaro with his idea of cool!!  I've been into painting junk on first gens since 1973 when custom painting was in demand.Check out the old car magazines from the 70s and you might just come up with your own idea..Color choice is somewhat  important when planning a custom paint job I beleive...The Motion Phase 3 with spoiler is a cool with a stinger hood.The Z427 with yellow/blk is a neat idea!Love the custom front spoiler!!

 That's been happen for many years now....no need to outsource immigrants work cheaper and employer doesn't pay workmans comp,ins,ect..... The culprit is "the bottom line" always looking for ways to increase profits..IMO

Pretty much same motor sold @ Auotzone-Advance Auto for a reasonable price and yes getting harder for them to stock.That's the reason for looking to find a concours rebuilders who knows what the originals should be. Thanks but it's got'a be original looking............

Any good shops that rebuild your original wiper motor? I 've had some rebuilt at my local rebuilders but it might not ever stop running even with the switch unplugged..The local shop now refuses to do anymore because of this problem.I can get a rebuilt motor through Auto Zone or Advance but it might have different hardware and bright zinc plating!

Good advice..the more you know can save you $$$$.I noticed the factory AC X22 project bid off at 1025.00 and is the POA valve correct for a BB Camaro?
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 z on ebay on: October 21, 2012, 09:08:58 PM

I can remember the 60s when the 55-57 chevy was the most popular................I agree the first gen camaro has went far past them now as the most popluar............just my 2 cents.

The 272 block would be a 69 block but it appears you have a 67 model  block that was cast in 1966 if those numbers came from your 4 bolt block with the roller cam making 600 hp??
