No date stamp, but here is a photo of the yellow mark on a 03B  LA car.

Sorry, I just have to nitpick, but why can't they get the Z/28 emblem in the grill placed correctly?

Hi,
     I use the GM Vinyl Cleaner. It is specifically for vinyl tops. I've had it for some time, I hope it is still available. I have also used a similar product from BMW, which might be a good option for you.

I agree! Your Trans-Am Camaros section is an incredible read. The narratives, interviews, and vintage photo's are truly an asset to CRG. Thanks for the hard work Jon!
I couldn't agree with Marty more, but it is an asset not just for the CRG, but to all of the car community!!! Jon Mello is doing wonders for our vintage history.

klvn8r, Thank you for your response. As I partake in this forum, I have found it very evident of the professionalism shown here, and respect it as such. I'd like to see it continue with only facts, and not assumptions, as have been common on other venues. This very subject of dating AMC cars, or others by your assumptions can lead to erroneous conclusions. I appreciate your photos and input, but I will continue to question not just your or anyone's post that I feel some clarification is in order. 
  Again, Thank you for this clarification that this particular photo may not have been taken in 1970.

I wonder, if perhaps, the 'goofy' chassis (obviously not AMC) forced the homemade headers or if they are 'pre-production' dog leg heads.

klvn8r

I'm not sure I'm following the dog leg head assumption. After blowing up the posted photos, I can't see anything definitive that one can say they are dog legs. There is tremendous speculation when it comes to these vintage AMC's, I hate to see it continually promoted. Can you please clarify?
Thanks,
Bob

Hi Steve,
  Good to see you found what you were looking for.  I think your link was wrong, maybe :    https://anvilauto.com/product_detail.php?product=cpanel
Their cowls look like what I saw at the show, but I thought they were steel, but I was probably fooled. Anyway, again glad to see you found it.

Hey guys,

I am considering doing away with the fresh air "slotted" cowl vent on my 69 Camaro since I have installed a vintage air system and do not need these and have capped them off. 



John,
  I'm not familiar with these systems, but as Steve says it apparently won't be a problem.

Hi Scott,
 This is what I have. Here is the Front Cover and Index. The pages are green, but not sure if this is indeed the first edition that you are looking for.





I also have the 2nd edition of the Chevrolet Power book:


As you can see, I've used it more than I probably should admit to.
Hope this helps,
Bob

Hi,
     I believe most of the vendors sell a reproduction of the Power Book. Likely the first edition, published around 70-71 if I remember correctly.

Hello,
  I utilize both a Wells Cargo and also a TPD 8X20 enclosed for the 69 Camaro. No problems at all. A winch is the normal way to load and unload the car. You really don't want to drive the car on, as it is very destructive to the clutch on any car.
   I have found the width difference between an 8 and 8 1/2 footer to be very detectable with the tow rig in regards to aerodynamics. Something to consider.

Hi Steve,
I recently attended a Goodguys show in Pleasanton. One of the large vendors had a display Camaro with a cowl with no vents. It appeared to be an aftermarket produced item. Sorry i didn't get any info. You might do a search or question on http://www.lateral-g.net/forums/.  Most of those vendors post there. At least someone might send you in the right direction. Definitely no need to fab your own.
Good Luck
Bob

Hi Marty,
 We use these on all our cars. They are foolproof.

Scott, and family, glad to hear it was a family decision!   I've found lots of patience is needed when it comes to paint jobs, its nice you have the family's support. Please keep us posted as to your progress.
