I have also talked with Eric about some of the finer details on his system. I think initially when it came out it was considered a high level reproduction, mostly because a lot of reproduction stuff in general was (is) crap. But over the years Trim* parts and other items have become more and more refined, while his exhaust system seems to have stayed the same. It is still a nice system from what I have seen but, little things like these clamps as well the muffler clamps on the resonator set up and the over the axle hangers could have been reviewed by him and made to be correct. From what I researched a few years ago there wasn't another company that was going to swoop in and eclipse his system, but I think you always want to try to improve your own product right?
17  Orphans - documentation or VIN-stamped drivetrains - in search of the original cars / 1969 - Orphans / Re: 69 RSSS paperwork on ebay 124379N650677 on: November 15, 2014, 10:54:49 PM
 
Unless I'm just plain clueless..which is possible.  Just why in the world would anyone pay that kinda money for doc's ?  Unless it was actually the paperwork to your car then I can understand.  Since it went to a winner by bid that tells me that it's not for the actual car.  So what's the reason for wanting, it's most likely recycled metal by now.

That car is a treat. I think you have to keep the mud flaps and rock guard on to show how much this guy wanted to protect the car. Otherwise it would be hard to believe the paint on the motor and such is the original.

Agreed. BUT you do still see law enforcement discovering cars, from back then that were stolen. Still a long shot, but you need some kind of stamped numbers to start with.

My friend without a VIN or known engine stamp, I am unsure how you would even be able to recognize the car now.
 I would say your looking for a needle in a haystack, but its more like a needle in haystack full of needles. There are so many cars without there original motors in them now, the guy that ended up with your car may have realized it was a JL8 car and re-stamped a block to look correct by now, or at least a correctly dated replacement. I would go back and look for some old registration, and then do a state to state VIN look up to locate where it might be registered. Good luck!

Seems like my bracket may be different with a rubber strap as well.  Was this a chambered only part?

Wtg,  another one back on the road.... Wink

I agree, I was on the 215 the other day and saw a camouflaged Malibu (?) with michigan plates. Interesting, but it's not like we spotted a new Vette or the new Camaro. I might be excited then....

Shoot I thought the Z wasn't a whole lot more than a base v8 Camaro. I wonder back then did Z cars stay on the dealer lot for that long, or did they move them pretty quickly? Meaning would you have had a chance to get a deal on a Z if one didn't sell quickly

Glad to hear you had a good time. Turlock is a good swap meet, but I would agree it is not in the bay area, it is in the valley. The $26 is better, but I have been to Turlock, the Hershey fall meet in PA,  have been to Pomona, and I have been to the huge swap meet in portland (race track and fairgrounds), and I have never had to pay more than $10 to get in. So for my money, I would choose the extra 1 and 1/2 drive time, and go to Turlock.

Good for you seeing the cup half full and making a day of it! Cheesy

Danny that is probably the biggest show in the bay area, now a days. back in the 90's it was a great show and swap meet. You could do it all for $10 including parking. Then around 1995 Goodguys put there name on it, all the prices doubled to get in and they started charging for parking. It seemed like every year after that they kept doubling the price to park. I think the last year i went was around 2002, it was close to $10 to park, they combined the swap meet and the car show so you had to pay for both even if you just wanted to go to the swap meet. The price that year was like $30 by the time you got in the gate. (that is just to walk in, not show a car). They also raised the rates on the swap meet spots quite a bit. So instead of seeing a bunch of stalls with parts, more than half the swap meet was commercial vendors, (bad repro parts, stereo speakers, chrome polish, harbor freight tools)
Thats when the persona changed and I started to see guys walking around with shirts that read "Greedy Guys".

I hope things have changed because with the direction they were going I think it really hurt the little guy who wanted to check out some cars or the younger crowd which the hobby needs to continually grow.

Like I said, I hope things have changed for the better... Smiley

If you have a hydraulic cam, it is best to adjust them while running. I have a hydraulic roller cam in my 64 C/10, and have a cut out valve cover to do the job.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My New '68 Camaro Z/28 Butternut Yellow on: October 28, 2014, 12:33:22 PM
Understood, that is a lot of Camaro money right there. Well I think things are going to take a change for the better with you carb situation, and I am excited for you to get it bolted on, and mash that pedal... Shocked

I am sure other things may present themselves as needing to be checked out or out of tune, but some of that is the fun for us Camaro owners. Good job sticking with it.. Cool

I wish I was closer to the car to take a measurement for you. I would only be guessing that it has the longer distance at this point. (My pics don't have a measurement in them for that). My point was that at the least both cars received the same fan. There are other guys out there with 08C cars, but I unsure if they still have the original fan or clutch for that matter.
