another of the same but without the flash reflection

The far left 69 Z28 car reads below it "Z28 Mike 10.90"  The 68 Camaro it reads "Bm/P John 9.30 or 9.80" the far right 67 Camaro reads "SS/D Don's 10.90" E-town" as best as I can make out.   enjoy..

Well i hope i am not posting out of line here but I love seeing these back in the day Camaro photo's

Below is a photo of a photo I took that was posted at a speed shop... I know nothing about any of the Camaro's other than this was on the Berlin Turnpike in CT.  not sure if you can see them but they have some ET's written below with some pretty fast times...   Wink

My Advice: Keep as much original metal as possible and patch the floor holes where even you can.  It just works out better that way.  Stronger and keeps its shape better that way. JMO.

-Mark.

Mark, I took your advice and only replaced what had to be.. Thank you... GI Joe, Airborne!

There was a time when your friendly detective, police officer, law enforcement official could access some type of record from NICB. Today I think it requires a case assignment/number and any officer or other found trying to access the stuff without proper authorization faces severe penalties.


I can concur and can personally testify that is the case that rsinor states above. 

Back in the 90's I had a job working in the Traffic division as an engineer.  Of course I became friends with several of the police officers I worked with and some how one day one of them was talking with me about finding the original owner etc.,etc.. and he ran the VIN for that car for me. If I remember correctly it only provided me the dealership where the car was delivered.    Undecided

Well fast-forward 20+ years and I have several very good friends through out the states who serve on both fronts, as a police officer and as soldiers.  I have asked a few of them only to end up with Sorry Joe we can't... it putts our jobs at risk, ...its not worth it...etc...etc..

So if you can get that done you really know a VIP somebody and owe them a huge favor...  needless to say I began to realize that I was not just asking for a simple check the numbers... I felt bad about even asking my buddies...  so that is why I can concur... 

but personally even though we probably can't ever go back to those days of innocence ... I feel that everywhere you turn there is  Chicken Little "the sky is falling' cry...IMHO that results in over kill and craziness... sigh.. 

I was thinking... (watch out, dangerous shaky stuff ) LOL Grin    Could there be some discussion and investigation of the possibilities of having CRG approach them from a business point of view?

Do you have the VIN on the car? i can check to see if that lines up with the tag...
37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: GM gets bailed out, then goes to China?? on: January 26, 2013, 10:22:23 AM
oh yeah... I should share this for what it is worth...

Every countries population has about 10% of the best and smartest, i.e. your rocket scientist, MD's, PHd's, (Camaro hobbyist... LOL), etc...

now China's 10% is more than all the US population put together...

this little fact brought it in clear for me to see what we are up against...
 Shocked


BTW, I have nothing against the Chinese people, I think they are a good people, very smart and kind...

but Communism  is another matter...

Wow i did not know this... but i am not surprised either...  Undecided

especially since our political folks have IMHO these days forgotten they took an oath to preserve and protect the US Constitution against all Foreign and Domestic enemies...  lately I think a whole mess of them have crossed the line into the enemy category...   Angry

so why would they do anything to keep manufacturing here... where we used to make everything... now the excuse is we can go over seas and basically get slave labor....  world economy or not this I think is the down fall of our great nation... it is not about us... and our founding fathers ideals are a thorn to all the others who want it changed...  Cry

Lets count some facts:

1) we have lost some of our Freedom of Press... the media reports what they want and how they want it seen... do you really think you are getting the full picture? Ask your self who owns the media reporting source and what their agenda is.

2) We are loosing our Freedom of free speech... why do you think they call it politically correct???  for goodness sake should you say the wrong thing!

3) and now we are likely loosing our other freedoms and our Constitution...  especially the right to bear arms...

4) have you noticed that there is always racism, abortion issues, gun issues, gay issues.... why is this???... it is the focus to keep you unfocussed from the real issues...  All I have to say is just follow the money...

i did not mean to get on my soap box here... now they'll be looking at me for speaking the truth... LOL  anyway we all need to do our part in keeping this country a great nation... we still are the beacon of light in this world... so do your part...    Grin

I was just thinking there might be something out there that might help the restoration process.... Undecided

tracking progress on each parts restoration, etc... but more importantly knowing what to do  and when to do it... 

 Lips Sealed
ah huh,

maybe this might be the expert Master restorers secrets to the perfection of this art....  and am I worthy of this knowledge....

On team Camaro is this used OEM pair... 
i would think you can find these needing to be re chromed readily

41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: What supension parts to use on: January 23, 2013, 01:58:51 AM
I have been keeping with all parts restored as to exactly as OEM factory would have made it.

However, I see the benefits of new technology and if I can do both... just some wishful thinking I guess....
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: flow chart or program restroration on: January 22, 2013, 03:11:07 AM
I think so ..
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / AMD quarters - update on: January 21, 2013, 08:46:07 PM
ALCON:  (ie..military for all concerned)

the AMD quarter panels were as promised... excellent gauge thickness  and they appear as perfect as the OEMs... 

of course a little tweaking here and there as with any metal body part ... but I wanted to report this good news...

I will update more as time permits... GI JOE


PS
For those who recommended I use Matt's Camaro's http://www.mattsclassicbowties.com/contents/en-us/d1.html ... A1+

very good... much thanks to all for the advice...   Grin

Does anyone use a .... or has anyone used a restoration program or flow chart method to keep them tracking on their restoration project? 

I have used a method called Critical planning method and or PERT in the past for construction civil engineering work....   i am thinking of putting something together...

Basically I have those Camaro restoration books... they are helpful to a point... I find it is more paper drafting, asking others who have been there done that, taking documenting photos and just knowing what is next to getter done... any thoughts???

45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / What supension parts to use on: January 21, 2013, 08:03:43 PM
Hi everyone,

I hope I am not asking too many questions... I am just trying to get this done right the first time...

Anyways I hope this finds everyone doing well... everyone here at CRG has been helpful and I thank you all for the advice and help...

my question today is "What suspension parts to use and why?"

Should I use one type over another, one brand or manufacture, what pit falls to avoid, what to make sure is done, (i.e. type of coating, plating, bolts and procedures used, etc...)

...and if I am asking too many questions or not sharing enough info, or whatever...I can handle tough love so tell me straight up... that's the only way I can be sure I improve, do the right things, etc... 

once last thing, please let me know if you are looking for a part, some help or something... I want to be able to help my fellow Camaro buddies where I can... just helped a Camaro buddy move some cabinets into his place... an extra pair of hands goes along ways...so does an occasional get together for a beer or two..  Cheesy

I am planning on keeping as much of the suspension as original as possible... but ball joints, bushings, etc...I expect will need replacing...

GIJOE
