 I thought those plates are now in reproduction.

If it isn't puking any water, I'd change the coil. This sounds like a classic case of the ignition coil overheating, then working once cooled down. Just a thought and good luck.
 I have seen that happen with my fathers '66 Mustang. It was easy to narrow down because when the car was hot and no longer would start, the spark was weak and yellow in color instead of a strong 'snap' and blue in color. Changing the coil fixed it.

 This must be an error about the motorcyclist "...Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and is listed in serious condition"
Non-life threatening and serious condition in the same line?
In my 40+ years of riding motorcycles I have yet to see a serious condition not life threatening if they collided as the early story is eluding to and judging from the damage.
 
 The last time I personally witnessed a motorcyclist race an old GTO from a stop light, the bike went down within seconds of the green light when the bikes rear tire swung around.
The bike was a BMW with a shaft drive which are known to torque a bike.The event, though an embarrassment to the motorcyclists pride, caused a huge laugh with the real biker crowd who was there on the sides to watch this 'bravado' match as the motorcyclist challenged the car already at the street light.
We have a saying in the biker world....racing a car is bad arithmetic because 3000 (lbs for car) goes over 700 (lbs for bike) one time with nothing left over. (adjust weight to suit)

I hope all involved come out fine though their pride deserves the hurt.

 The location of the dealers name, if it has a larger section extending past the frame thickness border, may be state related and plate year. Here in NY if a license frame overlaps the New York name or the sequence number even by a little then you can get a ticket.

5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: HELP!! I need info regarding original exhaust DB level!! on: July 15, 2014, 04:02:28 PM
    Luckily on Long Island, any car older than 25 years only needs a safety inspection and no longer requires an exhaust pipe test so there is no problem with DB readings. But, the tail pipe(s) have to extend to the back of the car. The only time I have seen cops bust chops over loud exhausts is when the drivers actions warrant it, otherwise they leave you alone (and may admire your ride).
 Here is the NY code and reading it closely would indicate you would be OK if you use a stock type system. IMO, if a reproduction/aftermarket OEM type is installed for your year car then it should be acceptable.

NYVTL 375-31. Mufflers and exhaust systems. Prevention of noise. Every motor vehicle, operated or driven upon the highways of the state, shall at all times be equipped with an adequate muffler and exhaust system in constant operation and properly maintained to prevent any excessive or unusual noise and no such muffler or exhaust system shall be equipped with a cutout, bypass, or similar device. No person shall modify the muffler or exhaust system of a motor vehicle in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the motor or exhaust system above that emitted by the muffler or exhaust system originally installed on the vehicle and such original muffler and exhaust system shall comply with the requirements of this section.

A muffler is a device consisting of a series of chambers or baffle plates, or other mechanical design for the purpose of receiving exhaust gas from an internal combustion engine, and effective in reducing noise.

An exhaust system is a series of mechanical devices for the purpose of receiving exhaust gas from an internal combustion engine and expelling it into the atmosphere.

 If you are referring to the vacuum advanced, there are Corvette reproduction and some have the same usage number. I bought one from LI Corvettes for my '67 L35 and it looks and fits exact. The only exception is the number 1 in the code is slightly different (top tail in 1 . vs. straight l ) . I'm not into judging and the number is not easily visible so I went with spending the $45 for it.

 Just to show how the AIM has errors, it even shows the R/S grill center lower molding to valance rivets inserted in the opposite direction from what was actually done.
I wouldn't be surprised if there were other errors.

 Are you sure you have the correct Z-bar?

 Where specifically....tub or rear quarter? Inside the wheel tub they are the plastic type and on the rear quarter drop down  (behind the tire) it is rubber on my 67 04B and 05B.

I would say early is more accurate. The limited amount of "mid" Q-jets I have seen were dated around Feb 67.

John,

 I see the trunk lid striker plate is painted. I guess in '69, or sometime before, the process was changed to install it (and adjust likely) prior to paint?
My '67 is not painted.

Great thread on original stampings! I was looking at the 1967 MP block and was wondering if it was common sometimes for the factory to stamp the VIN upside in relation to the block code. I've never seen that before.  Huh
Yes, it's happened a few times. There was a small run where the year and plant code were reversed (ex: L7xxxxxx vs. 7Lxxxxxx). I have one such stamping on my 67 BB from LOS where is it L7153XXX

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Lid Identification on: June 30, 2014, 08:05:37 PM
 Here are two pictures on my '67's from 04B (original paint) and 05B (in primer).
 Hope it helps sort out when changes in the stampings approximately occurred

Mike.
