Well it depends if you are going to use  "Primary Research & Restoration Data for First-Generation Camaro" I would put it below the banner and the website above the banner. If you are going to use " the camaro authority" or "camaro archeologists " then I would put either of those statements above the banner ,and the website below it. I think it is a matter of balance. I do like the Camaro script with.org behind it.

Can the CRG banner be any larger on the shoulder blades? I would like to see a larger banner on the back if it is not feasible on the front. Also the website included in the same font as the mission statement, but have the mission statement above the logo on the back and then the website below banner possibly. One other question I have seen the deadline date for entering our ideas, but is it a separate vote for what color the actual shirt is going to be? Thanks

Some like the logo big and like promoting the website, and some like it small so they are not " a walking billboard".
Ok, so I have question: What is the point of this shirt?
A. to let people know about this great community of Camaro owners,  but very subtlety,  only if they are right in front of you, and close enough to read a small logo printed on a pocket
B. to raise awareness about the best 1st Generation Camaro based website by wearing a shirt that describes it but only big enough on one side of the shirt.
C. so you can wear a shirt that by some chance of the planets aligning, another CRG member may get a good enough look at it to recognize the small logo and strike up a conversation with you about what a great website it is, and feel like you are a member of a secret society that identifies itself by these special shirts.
D. to let other 1st Gen Camaro lovers and owners know there is a website referred to as the CRG (that someone came up with a great looking logo with a red back round that should not be limited to a front shirt pocket), which anyone could see and read with you coming or going, that you are proud to wear because the website is a great tool for 1st gen Camaro owners, and you hope to help other Camaro owners out there by piquing their interest enough to ask you about it, or they could clearly read he shirt well enough to check out the website themselves.
My point is simply this, if your trying to share the knowledge of the website and all it has to offer with other owners who are not aware of it, why wear a shirt that shows the LOGO so small. Isn't the idea to grab the attention of other Camaro owners  ? A large banner of the CRG logo on the front with the website below it, and then "Camaro" script, across the back shoulder blades with a short mission statement, and the website again, accomplishes this goal.
To the people who don't want to be a walking billboard, isn't this the idea ?  To promote the website?Huh

I may be coming from right field with my ideas here. I am probably one of the younger if not youngest 1st Gen Owners on here. I guess I am lucky I stumbled on this secret website....haha.
I really enjoy the website and how much it has helped me out, I appreciate it so much I don't mind being a walking billboard, and am excited about introducing this website to other first gen owners and adding their cars history, as well as the owners knowledge to our great community here.

Sorry for the rant, just confused about the direction of this shirt and the main reason for doing it is all

I agree on the web address. The short mission statement is well placed. So far I like this version the best. Thanks for the time you guys have spent putting together our ideas into a visual idea of what the shirt could look like.

I like the CRG banner on the front, I like the Camaro emblem script, but on the back of the shirt
1296  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Official CRG Cap? on: November 10, 2012, 02:15:22 PM
I think it looks a bit to conservative. I like the CRG Banner:  I would have the CRG banner with red back round large and centered across the front of the shirt, have the website either under it or on the back by the neckline and then some eye catching emblem(s) on the back: either RS    Z/28    SS *or  have the CAMARO chrome emblem with your one liner under it.

Now if things went well and you wanted to develop a polo shirt, then I agree with Sauron327 that you keep it small. Polo shirts are more business oriented and have a small logo on the front.
My friend gave me a GOLDEN GATE MUSCLE CARS (car club) shirt and it is black with the golden gate bridge across the center with there logo in the middle, I think a t shirt lends itself to more artwork.
If you are just going to create a small logo, why not just hire a vendor to make a CRG patch, then guys can purchase them and put them on T-shirt or POLO, or hat of their liking
which ever color they want.
problem solved.

I think having the emblems on the back is going to attract more attention to the shirt, and a lot of people recognize each of them, and would make the connection.  The X-44 X-55  etc.., I think people would miss the point. BUT I do think if you have the CRG banner on the front you should have the website on the back above the emblems, then maybe below the emblems you could put some kind of a quote like " Answers for your first gen Camaro"  or something that identifies the mission of the site.
1298  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Official CRG Cap? on: November 09, 2012, 10:03:33 PM
I know the RS is just trim, but there are  a lot more guys out there with the RS option than the ZL-1 option. So I thought having the RS would help the symmetry as well as be more inclusive to guys who may just have an RS. You could do this :

RS         Z/28              SS

     ZL-1         COPO

but I think it may start looking to busy. Just like if you started listing all the motors, to busy I think


1299  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Official CRG Cap? on: November 09, 2012, 08:48:08 PM
I was thinking the emblems could be prominent on the back with the website above them just below the neckline, And then have the large CRG banner on the front possibly?
1300  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Official CRG Cap? on: November 09, 2012, 08:28:32 PM
I like the emblems the way you mocked them up on the shirt. But the Z/28 may overshadow the SS and RS, enough for guys to want "the SS on top". Thats why it may look better to have :

RS      Z/28    SS

Plus the SS guys will like the SS out front, I would think....
1301  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Official CRG Cap? on: November 09, 2012, 06:44:59 PM
It may look better to have the Z/28 emblem flanked by the RS and SS, like book ends? If I was good at photoshop I could cut and paste an image together

RS                   Z/28                  SS

   

1302  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Official CRG Cap? on: November 09, 2012, 03:13:30 AM
How about instead of three pictures on the back,  just simply:

RS           SS           Z/28

Done like each of the emblems possibly?

Just an idea....
1303  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 survivor Z on ebay on: October 07, 2012, 12:06:09 PM
IMO, it seems like there are enough restored cars out there to go ahead and look for one that is already done. I can understand if a car just falls into your lap, you can't help but buy it, if its that great of a deal. It just seems like there are guys out there looking specifically for a unrestored cars, and this is shaping up more and more to be a niche market. Unless you over paid for a unrestored that was in shi**y condition, I would be surprised if you lost money when selling one. The Camaro/Car guy in me says leave it alone as much as you can and preserve the car in its original condition or sell it to someone seeking that condition, but in the end if taking the journey once again to see a car restored is what gets your rocks off, than its your car to do so.
I would somewhat agree with Gary (69Z28-RS) in response to paint condition or rusty areas, although Bills recent purchase of a low milage but poorly stored Z(burgandy) is on the borderline of where I would think you have to delve into certain areas just make sure it doesn't get worse.
 Have a good one!

I noticed the sway bar bushings, maybe they just dried out? seems like pretty low milage to necessitate replacement though. I also noticed the dip stick  and motor re-sprayed. It looks to me like it has chrome exhaust tips, and I didn't think those would have been available with the chambered exhaust, is that right? Also is looks like it has a short spoiler on it, seems like a 02D car would have had a full length spoiler by then. One other thing which I am unsure about, does anybody else out there have this much overspray on there car? I know anything could have taken place back then, but that seems like a ton of overspray. My car is pretty original and I don't have anywhere near that much overspray
1305  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1111480 distributor on: September 21, 2012, 05:53:39 PM
I have been looking for a late spring 1111480 for about a year and studying a lot of photos. All the real ones I have identified have the turn marks on them. I have been looking at mostly unrestored ones though. I actually have one dated 8K30 for an early 69 if anyone out there has a late spring unrestored one in their stash of parts that they would like to trade?
