General Discussion / Re: Bloomington Gold adding Camaro's for 2019
« on: December 30, 2018, 07:15:52 AM »
Funny reading the comments as well on that forum. Seems the corvette guys are not happy about the new addition.I thought while I was reading, why add the Camaro now? I thought they must see dwindling numbers on the corvette side. Guy Larson, obviously agreed and said they need to pump some new blood into the corvette hobby. A C2 Vette is on my list, just waiting for more white haired vette owners to take a dirt nap, so I can get one... 😈

very nice. Our good friend Bentley gave me a good used gas cap for my white 69 last year and while not rare, I appreciated it just the same.  :)

Dealer emblems are cool, not all dealers used them of course, and some emblems looked better than others.

I like the pic where it is on the deck lid, since it balances it out nicely. But on the rear panel, it seems to be more period correct, because of the visibility it would have gotten back then. So my vote would be rear panel. whats great is you can move it all around, depending on your mood, and it changes the look of the car. great job!

How about a Y77 any leads on that one? Just looking for a good core for shows, I don't think I can afford a NOS one. thanks

But Gary I think you have the fountain of youth in your garage. I am hoping to see your 69 on the road before his

Well if nothing else we got a few secrets Ed on how to build a system on the cheap, and that was my intension from the beginning, to try to help guys piece together one. Glad my worthless post produced some responses from members that will help guys out... :)

Man you guys are tough to please.
I still think it could be a good deal since it can be hard to even find the pump, but I would offer quite a bit less. Maybe there are a lot of smog pump bodies out there for sale, but I don't see many for a good deal. If you factor the pump, the diverter, and the clamps, I thought it might help someone out.
Please post some links to better discounted good deals, if my post seemed absurd... ;D

Interesting that it would be a 396 auto car. To dove tail with the other thread about dealer orders getting cancelled. I wonder how many JL8 optioned camaro orders were never fulfilled back then? for such a small window and small production, was it worth the marketing value to have it as a option on the car from a business perspective? seems like it would have cost a lot to make up all the parts front and back  and training to install , to be profitable for that small of a run.

Well that was my thoughts. Some guys ask the big money for this stuff. So if you just wanted it for looks or could use it to finish off a current set up, may be a good deal.

Hey I saw this ad for a 69 smog pump on ebay. I know the're a lot of guys trying to piece back there system. Quite a bit included in the auction. I thought of Tim trying to disassemble his.
Not a bad deal, you may even offer less and get a better deal:

I will have to take off the my other drum and see what the date code is. Hopefully the stamp is more clear on that side. I would assume like Garys the dates should be pretty close, so my other one may be around 227, which would be spot on for the when the rear end was stamped on mine BU 0815G2. (August 15th)

Likewise for Gary's : 241 would be the same date his was stamped * BU 0829G1 (August 29th)

Seems like the ink stamp, and metal stamp should be somewhat close. probably not many original cars to get data points on this though.

Lloyd you into some crazy detail here. I love the pursuit, by you and Chick to get it right in a resto.
Here is a pic of mine from my 08C (late 69 car)
Not as neat and clearly stamped (could be 227?)
