General Discussion / Would you pay more for a rare color?
« on: January 21, 2016, 04:23:22 PM »
Would you pay more for a rare color ? if it was a desirable rare color how much more?

Ok this may have been discussed before but ZLP955 question about Corvette Bronze made me think of this question.

So Price is related to demand right? So most likely, if the condition was the same, a hugger orange car would go for more than a burnished brown car, just based on there is more demand for the orange than the brown, (sorry BB guys).

Now Orange is not a rare color vs. burnished brown, but what if the color of the car was corvette bronze and just for argument sake we are talking about a SS model. How much more would the purchase price go up for that desirable color? vs. just a red, blue or black?

Now I know everybody has different tastes, and more recently you see re-stamps with 10 10 (black) or 72 72 (Orange) on them, but while those colors have a following and there might be a slight uptick in price for them, I wouldn't say either is rare.

Now there are other "rare" colors like gold champaign in 69 but I wouldn't put that in the same category as Corvette bronze.

I know not everyone is a fan of Corvette bronze, just trying to get an idea of how much more that color would bring. thanks :)

Site Comments/Discussion / website nuances

So it seems like it started today, when I get an email regarding a new comment has been posted, the link in the email is no longer highlighted and I am not able to just click on it and go directly to the page.

The other thing I noticed is the forum page used to show how many members were registered in the top right corner and I no longer see that either. O r maybe it moved to somewhere else?

General Discussion / 1969 Z/28 authenticated by the a member of the CRG?
« on: December 10, 2015, 01:59:31 AM »
Hey Guys just ran across this 69 Z.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Camaro-Z-28-/171973884298?forcerrptr=true&hash=item280a71398a:g:JrIAAOSwyvBV90sg&item=171973884298
I thought it was interesting that the seller says the motor was authenticated original by a judge and member of the CRG, but then doesn't say anything about the trans or rear end which he states as an original 3.55 :1. Would have been nice to see the canadian docs.

Just curious Which CRG member authenticated this car, and did all canadian Camaros have a factory sticker on the passenger side wheel well documenting it as such?

General Discussion / Interesting Z on ebay
« on: July 16, 2015, 09:11:51 AM »
Hey Guys saw this Gold Z in a somewhat rare color combo of white stripes/white vinyl top, and with a white interior.
Also has a X ram set up, and certified by Jerry

$71K reserve not met.

It is a clean car, but I can't figure out if guys are bidding more for the rare color combo, or because of the X- ram

Lets see what it bids up to!

Restoration / Camaro Vs. Firebird = what is compatible?
« on: July 14, 2015, 03:56:42 AM »
Hey guys still looking for a 1969 non spoiler deck lid for a friend, and think I may have found one. It is off of a 1969 Firebird though:
There are no emblem holes present, and in looking at the underside it looks like it has the provision for the Camaro emblem.

So does anyone know a issue with running a deck lid from a firebird? What other differences am I missing?

thanks

General Discussion / Where do you find the best parts?
« on: July 10, 2015, 05:35:44 AM »
Hey Guys,
Seems like most of us are in the same boat when it comes to our Camaros, and we are continually looking for another nice piece, to get our cars that much closer to our goal. In talking with a fellow member we were both curious where everyone actually FINDS the best parts. So while most of us may search most areas, this is a poll designed with the goal of knowing where the best odds are to locate those elusive good parts.

Remember each person only gets 2 votes.

If I left anything out, please comment.

thanks!

Hey guys here's one for a laugh. ( I am making a cross country trip with my kids tomorrow, and trying to locate a clean 69 (non-spoiler) deck lid for a fellow CRG- er, and I ran across this Ad:
https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/cto/5086506026.html

Not sure wether to laugh or cry. I wonder how much time and energy was put into this car over the years..

This one pic is just the tip of this ugly iceberg. You have to see all the pics to understand how much they did not like the looks of the Camaro   :o

(Also if anyone has a non spoiler deck lid please PM me. thanks)

Decoding/Numbers / Help to decode a SBC please
« on: June 15, 2015, 07:32:52 AM »
Hello CRG,

So I have finally got around to getting my 55 Bel Air moved, along with all the parts I got with it. One of which, the motor, I thought for fun I would decode. So it still has the original stamp TI0I5HN which I assume is 10/15/ of 68 for the 69 production, but the curious part for me is the partial VIN -19C009887   (yes third character is a C, deffinetly not a 0)
Casting number is 3932388, casting date J 10 8

So any help would be great. I am not assuming this is even a motor that came out of a Camaro, but with the HN according to Alans book, it could be a SS 350 block? That C made me think maybe Impala?

I appreciate any insight.

Site Comments/Discussion / old posts and the search engine
« on: June 10, 2015, 05:18:58 PM »
So I was looking through google search online at different threads regarding grab handles, and I saw a "print" version of a discussion on the CRG:http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?action=printpage;topic=10591.0

I saw that Steve referenced some photos in the thread, but they were not displayed I am guessing because it was just the "print" version,  so I thought I will just jump over to the main site and go to the original post. NO luck

IS there a way to look at older threads easily? I tried a few different searches but couldn't get that thread to generate. Suggestions?

Not sure how much of it survived, but it does have a great amount of paperwork to go along with it, including dealer invoice and protecto plate. A fun one to watch at the least:
A good amount of info to add to the database for the pace car lovers out there.

General Discussion / 1967 Camaro - "time capsule"
« on: April 03, 2015, 03:50:45 PM »
Well guys I ran across this on eBay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/321713039208?forcerRptr=true&item=321713039208&viewitem=

I wasn't around when this was the creme del la creme, of its time. I have seen Corvette summer many times, and this car seems to fit that theme. Will cars like this hold there value in some kind of niche market? Do any of you who grew up with these types of cars, have any pics or stories of building such cars?
