Kelly,
I did a little surfing last night regarding crossram Z's and there are several cars out there for sale with crossram's...Very few claim to be original crossram's with correct carb package though.

I went to Bristol last weekend and there was a Black on Black 69 Z that the guy drove to and from the track. I did not get around to talking to him, or  ask him how it ran on the street but you could tell it looked to be a driver car and not a trailer queen, like the ones in Durham area.. I was told by someone there that knew the history of the car that it was an original GM crossram and carb set-up from back in the day.

There was also guy their from Fla. that had an orginal crossram and carb set up, that was on e-bay a few weeks ago trying to sell the combo. He supposely had a deposit on the combo and the guy was to pick it up at Bristol....I never did see if he sold it.

I understand from my reading they are not street friendly and the main reason they are being installed is they raise more conversation at shows..I'm not sure if they help the sale value of a car based on the investment to install a crossram set up...I'm not sure one would ever recover the cost for installing a set up unless it came with a purchased car. It's kind of like the JL8 brakes there are a lot of cars out there with them installed as well.

FeatherLite, would be your best best if towing weight is an issue...I have a 22' trailer and tow my Camry in it with a Z71 4x4. It seems to do just  fine.. I only get 9 to 12 miles per gal but its cheaper than buying a diesel 2500 pick up...

I have a 22' trailer and with the car about 12" off the back door (so it want get damaged if the car moves back some) there is enough room to move around in the front of the car. If you install winch a 20" might be long enough, I use the winch to load and unload my car...With a 20" trailer the would be little room for storage of a tire jack and battery up front for the winch...What is the dove tail length on a 20' trailer...I would check this out first to make sure the car is not being trailered on an angle once inside the trailer..

One of the lession that I have learned from this, is that I should stop trying to help others that I don't know all that well, just to establish a new friendship with unless they are very very good friends...At least a good friend would know your intentions were just trying to be helpful no matter what the out come or others my say or think.

Thanks for your response..Its given me some different prospective to ponder...

Marty, I would rather let this go and just be mindful of how quick we can sometimes be in passing judgement with limited information or things we really don't know all that much about other than what someone provide to us..

This has been bothering me..I kind of felt maybe this would help me to stop worrying about it just in case I had done something wrong.  Next time, I will just post the vin # and let the data speak for itself...

Several months back, I requested some info. on a vin # for a guys car that I learned about.  A few weeks ago, I got an ear full (I mean an ear full) from one of his guys closest friend telling me just how much he disliked me for what I had done even though the person that owned car said it was OK to run the Vin# through this site.

First off - I would never intentally trash anyones car, especially on open forum with experts like some of the guys from this site.....How stupid would that be.. I let the guy vent and rant and finally just walked away saying man this sucks..He was not even a part of the original conversation that took place so he jump the gun too..

All the information that I got from this site tells me the car is a real x77 and that the paint code that I listed was incorrect.. I put paint code 52-52 instead of 57-57..As I had stated in my post the lighting was poor when we looked at the cowl tag and that I could have wrote down the wrong numbers...I will never make that mistake again...So, where am I going with this...

I went back and looked at my post and I can see where or when we read something that we jump the gun too quickly and call someeones car a fake, when maybe we really don't know. At this point, I'm not sure is I can undo any wrong doings if any, on my behalf.

Next time, I would only asked that we ask for more details or info before jumping to quickly and calling someones car a fake just incase, it's not.

OK thanks,,,

Thanks William,  this helps a lot..Just so I'm clear on this point, if all the other info checks out on the trim tag correctly for the car i.e color code, body code then it is  possible that it could have been stamped 06B. Again, every thing else matches to the car...

Eddie
177  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Month and Week Coding on: August 22, 2011, 08:36:33 PM
Thanks Marty,,,I research this as well before I posted this thread and did not find anything that leads me to believe that the month and week coding was changed or stopped during the production year..But having said that, I'm not sure if they closed the plants down for Summer vacation or PM's like some plants did and still do for equipment maintenance and repair...

A while back I did a vin # search on a 06B build date and someone said that they thought that the 06B code was not right..So I was just doing a follow up to that comment...

My car is a 02D build date, which is Feb. fourth week...Did all 1969 production camaro's have a month and week build date (like mine)  or did this change sometime during the year.  I recall reading on one of the response post that an 06B was not a real number..Can some clear this up for me..

That sound right....If I was really interested I might drive to SP NC and take a look for myself...If the partial vin. number on the block was even close to a block I'm looking for I'd go and check it out...

Thanks  Marty,

I hope this e-mail finds you doing well..I have been in communication with him myself...He seems to know just enough about the motor and transmission to be putting the right spin on it...He just sent me a response that the motor and transmission are not matching...So I'm inclined to believe it could be a restamp since he is not even trying to send me the partial vin. number off the block...
