when you say manual with a brake, I assume you are talking about a manual valve body, & transmission brake? sounds like fun. So if you get the 56 that will shut your dad up for a bit and you'll get redemption I hope... Cool

As soon as i dial in the 327 in  my 64 C-10, my 55 2 door hardtop is getting the full court press. This time I am going in a different direction, so the 55 is getting a LS1 block, and a 6 speed. I had a 55 2 door post (210) that I bought for $2500 back in 1995. It was very clean no rust, had a 350 powerglide, and a 12 bolt posi with 3.73 gears. I was still a teenager and that was a good price back then for a clean runner. I think it might have had disc brakes as well. I ended up trading it for a paint job on my 66 Chevelle SS. I vowed the only way I was going to let it go is if I promised myself to get another one down the road and preferably a hardtop this time. Well as luck would have it my friend bought a hardtop with memories of doing donuts in mind. it only took me 4 years to talk him out of it. I will be pumped to get that ride on the road!

oh yea, don't mind that cable in the pic, the original owner was so worried about the motor mounts he had a cable installed on the passenger side as well as the factory recommended driver side. That motor isn't going anywhere....

I wasn't sure if mine were correct without the screws on the passenger side. I knew they were original, but I thought maybe the hex screws broke off at first glance,
thanks for that bit of info Chick !

not a great pic, but here is mine:

Dave I would think the judges are basing there judgements after looking at original cars with it positioned parallel to the frame? would be nice if Jerry M would weigh in on this....

You have a diamond" bill of ohio"   well put Jano.

While I have a some personal stock in 60's muscle cars, I wouldn't mind if Muscle cars took a hit in the market. I am perfectly happy having these cars coming down about 50% at least and be affordable to more of the masses. I think if the cars did become more affordable the buyers would tend to have more of a mindset of driving these and maintaing these beauties. The way things are going now, it seems these cars are just getting traded into collections, and not falling into new hands. As a younger guy I was able to attain these cars for the most part because they were affordable. I have since been fortunate enough to turn a profit on a couple of cars I cleaned up to be able to purchase my Z as well as another original owner car recently.
I am not charitable enough to sell them for pennies on the dollar just to get new blood into the hobby, but possibly to the right family member or good friend I might give a decent discount.

Ride of the month is just based on who submits a pic of their car right?

Hey man don't get to mad, they know what brings in the viewers......"The 69 Z".....and the misinformation that they seem to have a never ending supply of is why we are here at CRG  Wink

thanks David I think we are on the same page now. It looks like it is parallel to the frame in your more recent pics which is different then the AIM, so I am surprised they subtracted points for that. BUT it seems the way you have it now is the way some originals are being found.

Funny,
I have no allegiance to any one car or brand for that matter. I am more of a classic vehicle whore: Ford, Chevy, (Mopar in the works), Volkswagen, Harley Davidson, Triumph, BSA....and those have just been whats affordable. There are a few british makes, and italian cars on my (bucket list) to own still.

with the new pics you posted, it is easier for me to see the spark plug boot shields look correct . BUT I see your heat riser valve positioned differently now as well. Is this the corrected pic?
809  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Rick & His Yenko at Americarna LIVE Car Show on: December 09, 2013, 12:21:18 PM
post a pic of the vega for us.(please)

You may want to check your orientation on your exhaust heat riser valve, we are discussing this on another thread on CRG. I think one person said it looks like this in the AIM others had factory unrestored ones parallel with the frame rail, or maybe they were installed both ways?
Also I can't tell for sure but your spark plug boot shields should have a semi curve notch in them, I can't seem to see it on yours, but maybe they have them and your manifolds are to clean for me to tell from the pic.
