he may of, he was just very particular about the car. He documented every mile and fill up, and for the last 5 years he owned it anytime he started it up he took notes.....BUT .I can tell you that I have had it humming at 7k and loved it. ( I do still document every mile in his original journal) why break with tradition , ya know?

The original owner of my car was so worried about it, besides having the the factory recall one installed, he also had them install a cable on the passenger side! The ironic part of it, is the guy baby-ied the car so much he probably never had the rpms past 4k...lol

sorry I din't mean to hijack this thread, just trying to learn.
Well unless they added it after the inspection, it was not noted int he report.

My Original 08C am antenna mast does not have a grove. Maybe it was a vendor change mid year?

great pics, good story. Welcome to the site!

So the U69 were yellow light only then? thanks for filling in the blanks about the 2 radios. It is interesting that both had 2 different colors yellow and blue versus the rest of the dash lights which use more of a greenish  hue.

This is also mentioned in John Hoopers book The 1969 Camaro reference book, along with how many were sold( 8271 yellow, vs 2359 blue). The yellow also had a different option number of RPO U69, and the blue was RPO U79. It might be a handy book to have in your library.
John Hoopers book covers some different aspects than Jerrys, I wouldn't say one is better than the other, most of the info is similar of coarse, but Hoopers book has some neat little tid bits, like the RS option added almost 30lbs to the curb weight of the car along with many other interesting options and facts. You may find it a good read as well.

So kind of out of the norm to run across one it sounds like?
804  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Build sheet vs. "IBM" on: August 05, 2013, 09:08:35 PM
Someone in the know please elaborate on what these cards were for (substitute for build sheet?) and what did GM need them for once the car was delivered? maybe a confirmation to go with the statement of origin paper?
805  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heartbeat City reputation on: August 05, 2013, 06:49:59 PM
sure repro would make more sense, but seems like repop gets used more often. Same thing though reproduced parts
806  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heartbeat City reputation on: August 05, 2013, 06:29:26 PM
One other thing I just remembered, there are also reproduction parts made from the original tooling. These usually have a better chance of fitting like the originals did, versus other reproduction stuff which is a crap shoot. I have had good luck with Trim parts, there stuff has always been top notch, if NOS is not available.
807  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heartbeat City reputation on: August 05, 2013, 06:26:49 PM
Quick Breakdown:
-repop =reproduction parts . could be a good reproduction or bad. Even repop (reproduction parts) with the GM trademark can be junk.
-NOS is obviously New Old Stock. after years of being on a shelf they can have scratches or "shelf wear". Also some Nos parts could have been made many years after 1969, like the front license plate bracket, they may have made those into the 80's.
And then there is the assembly line correct which can be the most sought after, which refers to parts that were put on the cars originally on the assembly line.

Some of this may be common knowledge, but in case you didn't know... there ya go!

I'm jealous I haven't been there since the riots of 98
809  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Build sheet vs. "IBM" on: August 05, 2013, 01:22:47 PM
*Correction Jerrys book shows 1 broadcast sheet, Hoopers 69 Camaro reference book shows a couple.
810  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Build sheet vs. "IBM" on: August 05, 2013, 12:58:58 PM
Gary,
In Jerrys book he shows a couple of Norwood cars build sheets. I think it was less likely to find these in a Norwood car than a Los Angles car, but obviously they were hidden in some of them that left the factory.
Secondly I think if guys that have discovered originals post their info, hopefully they can describe where they were found.
So lets just stay tuned....
