Hey man keep looking. If you have seen the recent topic of Danny getting the 68 Z, there are good finds out there.

Well even though they don't have all the details, and there was some poor decision making going on, I hope all involved come out healthy and learn from the accident.

After seeing those CLR pics, I would love to see a couple before and after of your car done, it seems like a great candidate for it. I am happy for you and your girlfriend, hope you guys have a good time on Sunday.

"As for oil type and brand, lots of debates on that.  You might consider one of the oils for diesel engines. "

Actually there are different detergents in the diesel oil like Delo, or the Shell rotella , that are not helpful for a naturally aspirated motor. They do contain a little bit more zinc, but are counter-productive because of the other additives specific for diesel motors. I have researched this some. The previously mentioned Joe Gibbs oil, I think Royal Purple may make a special high zinc oil, and the classic car oil, would be the best for it. I think you can also use the Lucas break in oil, along with just your typical motor oil as Jano stated as well, and be in good shape.

I am guessing it was originally a non tach car.

In person though, they look a bit more orange to me.

The one I have, came from a low milage car, and looks pretty similar to JohnZ's.

For oil, check out :
http://www.classiccarmotoroil.com

Has the right amount of zinc for flat tappet cams. Cost is $69.50 a case (12 quarts). I picked up a couple of cases while I was in Indiana. I had them send me one case to California ($15 shipping). Even with the shipping cost, it works out to about $7 a quart, and the delivery is quick. You can save on shipping if you are near Indianapolis, just arrange to pick it up... Wink

Just make sure you are not buying it from a guy out of Angola Indiana. He said the same thing, I was one of the lucky ones to get my money back. Many people got taken by that guy. I did end up finding a nice original. Although it is called a rosewood wheel it looks a bit more orange. I have not seen one with any pink in it, but I would love to see a pic when you see it or he sends you an image.  The repops always look to dark, and are easy to identify.

good call. I am sure everyone else already noticed it had a cowl plenum piece still on the firewall, which I thought was interesting since it looks like they had to add a tach. Or maybe the factory tach went out?

Very cool if it is your car. I also noticed the rear antenna, another item that would help positively ID it possibly. Good Luck Darrell!

Hopefully you still own the car today, must be a early 68 with those 302 emblems, nice.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: now what... body bolts... on: July 18, 2014, 10:36:49 AM
well just to get them off, can you just torch the remains of the bolt out? I have a NOS fender on my truck and the factory nut for the bottom of the fender snapped off of its spot weld. (not a camaro fender of coarse) but I ended up opening the little basket that held it, just enough to pop it out of there and put a new nut in there, and have room to put a wrench on it when tightening it up. I did all this while keeping the fender on. Maybe this will give you some ideas. You have the benefit of once you get the old bolt out of coming up with a better solution with the fenders off. good luck with it
