Great shot of the factory PTB stamps. Although faint even when new, they do appear quite crisp and clear.
Why is the "P" a reverse stamp on the right side and upside down on the left side?  How did they do a reverse stamp? Upside down is very common. George

Good question.

His had BLACK and the PTB on the pass side but no sequence number on the firewall, it was  (80) on the top of the fuel tank and the top of the heater box.

Yes that was it. I thought it was a 50. All good info James.

Thanks again Jerry!  I found a link to a larger version of that picture on this site:






Anyone else notice the grease pencil mark on the firewall above the top heater hose? SO? SQ 5O?


Yes I noticed that as well. Didn't Lloyds car have the same marking?

Hey David 2 questions. Is your Alternator fan zink plated and where did you get you rad hoses?

Thanks

Hi Mike, I've been wracking my brain over the last few hours trying to remember some of the stuff I've done.  My wife and I bought a foreclosure house back in April and mentally I've been all over the place since then. 

Anyway....the original alternator fan was very rusty when I bought the car.  If I'm remembering right, I went with Zinc plating.  For the radiator hoses, I got them from pacecarjeff.





Thanks Dave that is what I thought. I just wanted to confirm. I blasted my original fan blade and will get it zink plated as well. Your upper Rad hose looks different than most that I have seen. I know Jeff is the guy to go to for the best hoses and clamps. Thanks for confirming.

Sorry for the high jack John. There is already a thread going on such cars.

Hey Dave what finish is on your alternator fan blade.

There are a few low milage cars still out there that have been stored well, this will put you on the right path.

If there are some 69 Z/28's with very low miles and stored well, I hope they post up some pics of their original unrestored engine bay.  I really like the pictures that JohnZ has posted.

My Z had 8 owners before me and most of the former owners made changes and repairs.  It only had 59,000 miles on it when I bought it but changes were made.  Even looking at 1969 magazines, it seems that day 2 changes were being made right on day 2.

my engine before restoration:


after restoration pics:





Wow Dave really like your car. Turned out very nice. excellent detail work. Very crisp and clean. I hope mine turns out that nice when I am done.

I thought I recognized the picture in the Mander Super Huger Camaro ad.  The car is wearing the custom bolt on accessories that were available from the AMT Corporation Speed and Custom Division through Chevy dealers.  A member named BLUETOPPACE posted the entire catalog over at the Camaro Pace Car site.  See all of the pics on pages 2 and 3 here: http://camaropacecars.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/2510094833/m/2330062215/p/2 

Not sure if Mander used the parts on their own Super Hugger or they just used a stock photo for their ad suggesting what a custom built car could look like.

By the way, that thread also has pictures and info on some very rare and unique Mod Topped Camaros.  Someone named "Jon/1967Z28" posted a cool picture and some info on the Mod Topped 25th 1967 Z28 on pages 7 and 8 of this old thread.  Jon Mello were these your contributions?  If so, I never made the connection. LOL!  The  Check out the whole thing if you are intertested.

Yes that was me who posted the Mod Top photos in that thread. The sixties produced some very unique car ideas which reflected the fashion of the times. It is interesting however that I have never seen any of these modified or speciality prepared cars. I think those cars were so far over the top, that when the sixties ended, so did the desire to be that loud and outrageous. If any of those cars still remain, they surely were painted and returned to a more conservative look. Would be cool however to find some of these cars intact. Since these cars were modified from show room models, I assume that there is no way to document the specialty modified cars, other than perhaps photos from back in the day.My guess is that back in the day, there were a select group of Camaro owners who took their new Camaros into these shops and got some crazy looks applied to their cars. I wonder how many cars in total received these type of treatments. If anyone has anymore info please feel free to post away.

Mike, it did not look distorted when I looked at the link to the webpage.

Great pics. I live very close to where that dealer used to be. Too bad it is long gone now.

I agree the Yellow Script does look sharp. Key is painting is so it looks clean and crisp!

Well the show is over and what an event. I want to thank everyone involved for their tireless effort which makes this show successful. Although this is our fifth year it seems like the first because of all the new and exciting themes and showcases, year after year. The buzz around the whole event is intoxicating and creates energy that is contagious.This is no easy task or you would see many events like it, and its the only one that continually raises the bar. The quality of the cars is amazing and the car owners, restorers and sponsors make the event come a live.

Regarding Vintage, we were provided the perfect location to spotlight these time capsules. The participants in our program are terrific caretakers of these unrestored benchmark cars. The owners were very satisfied and appreciative of our teams thoroughness and energy, as each car was examined for 3-4 hours.

Great Link. Thanks for posting. Loved all those pictures of so many great cars. Wish I could have made it this year. Next year for sure. Can't wait to hear all about what is planned for next year.

Very interesting. Th Californian car and the others look like they got some serious polishing and most likely a wet sand. I have never seen pictures of any new Camaros from back in the day with that munch depth and shine in the paint. Also check out the lower front valence panel, it has much smaller/ narrower cut out than the stock model. Also the ride height on the cars seems quite high. Look at the gap between the tires and the top of the wheel well opening. Since they were car show cars, I wonder how real they were and what mods that had. I am wondering if they were even actual drivers or strictly display?
