How are you ever going to be able to do it if you don't give it a try??

You don't know how to do it, until you do.

My uncle has a 30 that is channeled only, and then a 34 pick up that he just getting on the road now. Both rat rods. I was there making the mods to help him channel it, not to hard. I haven't chopped anything, but it seems like getting the glass to fit proper and seal would be the tricky part.

Plus it is easier with hot rods, it doesn't have to perfect like on show cars, or factory correct. Little mistakes or imperfections with hot rods can just add to the story.

I agree with the block stamp, that looks like the easiest one to read that I have seen thus far, almost to good.

But Jano at that point you were only modifying your looks... Shocked
 at least you and your dad had the piece of mind to leave well enough alone with the cars.... Cool


Darrell it does look similar to the Falcon XB in Mad Max( or the Road Warrior), except for the fact that the XB came out pretty much stock like that, it had to have taken a lot of time and money to get that 67 to loo that way, I would think.

Well guys I ran across this on eBay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/321713039208?forcerRptr=true&item=321713039208&viewitem=

I wasn't around when this was the creme del la creme, of its time. I have seen Corvette summer many times, and this car seems to fit that theme. Will cars like this hold there value in some kind of niche market? Do any of you who grew up with these types of cars, have any pics or stories of building such cars?

There are a number of guys on here into other makes and models, we all just happen to all be fans of 1st gen Camaros as well. Smiley

sorry my mistake, it was a 860. It was a 08A on the tag could have been a repo tag I suppose? It was presented as a Z/28. I could not see the casting date on the housing, ( It was at a car show, not on jack stands or a rack). He let one of us go underneath with a small light and see the stamping on the axle tube, but there wasn't any it was smooth. I went under just to identify which housing, (860).

Well just saw another 08A car ( N667270) at a show, it also had the 341 rear, and curiously enough no stamp on the axle tube. Could be just coincidence

Hey just ran across this current listing:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Camaro-Z28-/171737097679?forcerrptr=true&hash=item27fc5425cf&item=171737097679

Maybe they used the same body shop, only this time they only goofed on one fender... Tongue

But then ran the rear stripes right up to the glass, to " top" it off.

Great number crunching, & Good info brother.
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Why I am worried about Body Work Guys in General on: March 28, 2015, 07:33:29 PM
I like the (N66) wheels. In the ford circles we call them magnum 500's, they also offered them on Mopars with an even longer center cap.

They even make an aftermarket  17" alloy version for all 3 makes now.

I am actually running a newer modern version of this wheel on one of my rides.

Not sure I would agree with the car feeling slightly quicker around town. The combo may be better for not winding the motor out, but I thought that was the whole idea. The 302 performs best when doing so.

Just my 2 cents.... Smiley


The 383 may be a nice change of pace if you tend to do more freeway driving, or don't want to get passed by everyone else and there 6 speeds.
