31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This Pic got me thinking.. on: December 02, 2014, 01:09:16 PM
Well one of the things I notice, is while agree the flash point is above the heater box, you will notice as you get farther away from the flash point along the upper cowl it gets less and less white, and by the time you reach the wiper motor it turns into a light overspray. Vs the passenger side where it is very bright white (very close to the flash), and even the rubber seal looks grey with a white (flash) stripe running along it.
This appears to be a 68 Z from the pic, is there no such examples of 68's with the cowl having any white overspray?

I think it would be interesting to know the percentage of all first gen Camaros with their original drivetrain. With big blocks getting swapped out, and the numerous changes guys made, including blowing up transmissions, and rear end swaps. Maybe another  poll is in order ??
33  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Poll: 1st gen Camaro vs. Stang on: December 02, 2014, 02:13:59 AM
thank you for the new topic Bently ( you got my juices going):
BUT What a lame poll.

Do you want a basic 65 mustang coupe with a 4 barrel 289?.....OR a 67 Camaro convertible SS/RS....

What decision?

The 67 Camaro convertible SS/RS should win all day long!

It would have been a more ideal poll had they said just a 67 Camaro hardtop with a 283 or 327 vs. a 67 Mustang Coupe with a 302.
Or if they would have had a 65,66 or 67 Mustang convertible GT vs. the highly optioned Camaro convertible.

Its all how they ask the question in the poll. To me the fine details in the poll question skew wether the 1st gen mustang or the camaro is more popular.

( BTW I have owned a couple of each, and they both have there pros and pros Cheesy.....)

Thank God for this great country and the beautiful vehicles that have been manufactured here, and been available for the masses to afford and drive.

Sometimes I feel like I am living the dream... other times I feel like I'm DRIVING the dream!

Hmm you sold your Camaro but still bought parts from him, makes me think you may own more than 1 Camaro at that house....

I like the goodie boxes, exciting to say the least.

I really like the color on that olds. It seems to be a great color for the big A bodies, a 70 Chevelle in that color is a favorite of mine.

Well I hope Steve was pleasant while you were in San Bruno.

Very nice pic of your car. I am a fan of red though.... Grin

Cowl tag has d 80 on it.

Sorry I missed it at first glance... Smiley

Maybe I'm just being a little critical of this car, but owner states.... Survivor Quality, Unrestored car, but two repaints, both quarters replaced, rear end replaced,and hood replaced?

Agreed. Seems like the spoilers were added as well ( no D80 on tag). Plus a bunch of the interior was replaced. Seems like more of the car has been restored than not. Engine compartment looks mostly original, less the smog  pump and added headers. Plus they added the quarter trim at one point. Looks like a good deal for $40k though

We love pictures, so as long as your future threads include pics were good.... Grin We all like to see the right car with the right guy. Good luck in your search!

It doesn't sound like it's going anywhere fast. I would suggest looking at a handful of more cars to compare cost, originality, and  which car matches what you are looking for the best for the money

Hey Danny, the hard work has paid off, thanks for posting the pics of the paint, what a difference! (from brown to yellow)

Are you putting some kind of clear over the paint you have cleaned as to prevent it from darkening up again?

Hey I just saw this post on eBay for a protecto plate, so if your vin number is 124379N601903 you are in luck.

Looks like the car was originally sold through Yenko!

(interesting the owners info is blank)

Seller : Shark427

i did a search on CRG and it also appears that Kurt has paperwork for this same car in the documentation List.
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Hose Clamps on: November 23, 2014, 10:43:41 PM
I am pretty sure the heater hose sizes are 1" 1/16, and 1 3/16. Yes you are correct they were dated by quarter. ex 1/68, 2/68/ 3/68, by WITTEK. The originals still seem superior to reproductions. The repo ones, can bend and tilt the tower pretty easily.

Bill Mock is a good source, he had a couple clamps for me a while back. I am not sure on 68 clamps what he has though.
