Test Drive / To: CRG members What year Camaro(s) do each of us own?
« on: April 05, 2013, 06:04:12 AM »
Hey guys,  I wanted to know more about the membership of over 4000 people and see what types of Camaros are inspiring the debate, conversations and continued research that fuels the interest and growth in this great  site.  This poll isn't meant to intrude and make public which owner has which car, but just let all of us know the percentage of each year Camaro that make up all of our members cars. The more guys that participate the more accurate picture of our collective of Camaros.
This is the 1st poll !
I would like conduct more polls to break down the information further and know for example : out of all the 1967 Camaro owners on this site how many of those Camaros are a plain jane or RS or SS or RS/SS, and Z/28, possibly Yenko or baldwin motion.  You get the idea here

Take it away guys!


Kurt, Ed or anyone amoung "the inner circle" , is there a rough breakdown of our 4132 members by year and model of car? like how many members have a 67, of those that have a 1967 how many are SS models, RS or a Z or plain jane, and so on and so forth for the other years. It would be interesting to know which year is strongly represented by membership and if the other years are close by, or we need to reach out to another years owners because there is such a discrepancy. I look forward to the answer on this.....

Originality / original transverse muffler date codes?
« on: January 06, 2013, 02:04:17 AM »
Hey guys wondering if anyone out there has an original transverse muffler on their car or in their inventory and if they date stamped the mufflers? Anyone have any insight on this one? Did they stamp a part number and date on the resonators as well?

I have been getting personal messages asking where we are at with our progress of  CRG hat and T-shirt. The old topic got Locked, it seems things got a little heated over wether or not we should have a poll while we are waiting for permission.

68Steve has corresponded with GM-EMI and received the forms.  I believe by now he has submitted these forms. I talked to the woman from EMI and asked her for a lead time on such permission, and she said it usually took about a month, but considering the holiday this month it would probably be closer to 6 weeks.

I hope this helps everyone who wants to know the status, and I am sure Steve will update us when he has more information, as long as this topic doesn't get closed as well.
If for some reason it does get closed, feel free to contact me, this will help Steve out if he is not getting bombarded from many questions.

thanks guys!

Originality / 69 spiral shocks
« on: August 28, 2012, 01:48:19 PM »

I have possibly located a pair of nos original spiral shocks.  My question is do these look like they are original? is there easy way to distinguish between the repops and originals? I have other close up pics if someone needs to see a particular stamp to be able to identify these as original. thanks for the help

Originality / Premium fuel tag, original?
« on: July 05, 2012, 06:05:14 PM »
Year One sells a red tag that says "use premium or super premium fuel for this car" they list for a bunch of makes and models. (part # pc200) I have seen this tag on a few different cars camaro and buick. Does anybody know if this came on Camaros, or what year and model car it did come on? Does anyone have a original? thanks for the help

Hi I would like to put together a data base of original 1969 camaros and hopefully create a data base of what the date on your distributors are. Since this piece is often res-tamped, if you are doubtful if you have an original please post a pic. I have a 08C car and after the original owner had the distributor recurved numerous times, at one point a shop installed something other than the 1111480. I know they made them in batches, I just don't know what other cars close to mine have in them, and I thought there may be other guys out there trying to figure this out as well.
thanks guys

By the way I am interested in buying an unrestored original if somebody has one laying around collecting dust....
I know good luck.....

Hey guys,
I saw this listing the other day on ebay # 230778509840,
looked initially like a clean car at first glance. I then read the description where he goes onto say how this is an early production Z and that he has original documentation for it including the dealer sticker, and that it is some gold crown show winner. I look back at the pictures and see the ZL2 hood and regular spoilers, and then look back at his dealer sticker. The car seems to early to have the regular spoilers, seems like it would have had the shorter spoilers, and it seems like it is to early to have had the hood as an option. I email the guy asking about these observations, and his response " Go F*ck yourself! "
So it makes me wonder as to the validity of the rest of the car. What do you guys think are my observations correct?

Originality / 69 Z/28 metal vacuum line correct?
« on: March 27, 2012, 10:52:43 PM »
I don't know if this was a 302 only issue so it could apply to the 350 as well. I am trying to figure out if vacuum line from the distributor which had a metal line and metal clip that bolts to the intake, was used throughout the year, or if there was a mid year change to all rubber from distributor to carb. I would appreciate if guys that have the original metal lines and the clip could respond with build dates, or motor dates. I also would appreciate if any guys with original motors with an all rubber line, and no clip on the intake could post the build date of their cars. I don't have a good picture of this, other than what John Z did rerouting his. So if you have a original picture please post it.
thank you for the help.

hey guys a little help here would be great:
I purchased a 69 Z back in 2008 off of the second owner who only had the car about 9 months. The car is unrestored and was preserved very well by the original owner. I was fortunate enough to get the p.o.p. and original invoice along with any and all receipts for any kind maintenance that was performed on the car. Since the purchase I have been locating most of the small parts that got replaced through the years. The one thing I have had trouble with is  finding a JIM EDELBROCK CHEVROLET license frame. The dealership was located in Plymouth Michigan at 345 N. main st. He bought the dealership from Ernest J Allison in approx 1966 an then sold it to Lou LaRiche in the early part of 1970. I would really like to find a license frame from this dealer, but would appreciate any memorabilia. I have  tried ads on cragslist, contacting antique dealers in the area, estate sale companies, the graduating class of 1968 of plymouth high school on facebook, as well as searches on Ebay, with no luck. The closest I have come is a tow truck driver that colects frames says he saw one in the junkyard a couple years ago but didint pick it up since it had a crack in it.

Please put the word out and lets see if this can be located.


Originality / what is unique or special about the 1111480 distributor?
« on: October 27, 2011, 03:08:38 PM »
I recently discovered my car does not have a 1111480 distributor, which is unfortunate.  I am curious what is so special about the 1111480 distributor, my car runs fine with the gm distributor that is in it I think I looked it up and it is 67 distributor for a 350. If any of you guys could help me understand the differences I would appreciate it. I have seen guys asking anywhere from $500 to $3500 for an original 1111480, stating they are rare, but didn't these come in all 69 z/28's? so wouldn't there be at least 20,302 of them out there not to mention the extras that GM would have had on hand at the parts counters? why would these go for so much?

Originality / Could you get a cowl hood on a base 1969 camaro?
« on: October 04, 2011, 07:44:53 AM »
Hey of corse you see the cowl induction hood on the pace cars madatory, and I know you could get them on ss cars or you could opt for it on a z/28. BUT could you order say a 1969 camaor with a 307 with the cowl hood. You could get a 6 cylinder Rally sport, right? so why couldn't you get the special hood with any V-8?

I Heard from John Z among others that in september 0f 69 all camaros got the vin decal applied to thier cars. My question : DOES ANY CAMARO OWNER OUT THERE HAVE A NORWOOD AUGUST BUILT CAMARO WITH THE ORIGINAL VIN DECAL?
NOTE: I do have jerrys book and have seen the posts concerning the pic with vin 671208, I have been unable to verify this as an original vin sticker and have multiple people tell me this sticker is reproduction as well as his dx tire sticker. So I put the question out there to our camaro universe, please post a pic if possible . I posted a september pic as a reference.

thank you

69 Z
date: 08C

Hi fellas,

I am looking for any info concerning the dealer of JIM EDELBROCK CHEVROLET. I purchased my current Z a couple of years ago, it had been an original owner car for all of its life, except 8 months. I am hoping I am not the only Camaro owner out there that has heard of this dealer and someone can help me out. he was located at 345 N. main st. in plymouth Michigan. The location then became Lou LaRiche chevrolet and in 71 or 72 they moved a few blocks away. While I was fortunate enough to get an orgy of paperwork with the car and an original dealer key fob, I have been unable to locate an original picture of the dealership, or any other memorabilia ( of course a dealer license plate frame is one of the items on my wish list). So if anyone has any info or items for this dealer, POST IT
