General Discussion / Thought I would share.
« on: July 09, 2013, 08:11:17 PM »
Since everyone loves to see pictures I thought I would share what I ran across a few days ago.  As I was going through some old photos at my mothers I ran across this one.  Still going through old pictures and hoping I find more of the vintage ones of the cars.

My father Carman Cook with his new Camaro - April 1968




And the car he traded in for the Camaro.

Does anyone know when the cut off was for the number being cast into the neck portion and the base?  Or was this a result of different manufacturers?

Originality / Original Tire options

I always see Firestone and Goodyear tires as being the original tires for our cars but what about the other tire manufacturers that were used?

General Discussion / I Just Dont Understand...
« on: April 19, 2013, 12:47:07 AM »
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Frame-Up-Built-Camaro-Z-28-Rally-Sport-ZZ430-V8-4-Speed-/121093160632?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item1c31b6feb8#ht_14068wt_978


The sale of this real-deal Z/28 includes an original owner's manual, an original Protect-O-Plate and a full package of information from Camaro expert Jerry MacNeish.

With the price of numbers-matching Z cars hovering around six-figures, they're obviously moving into the "too nice to drive" category. But if you're the kind of guy who believes in putting his hardware on the road, in the feel of a perfectly executed downshift, and the banshee wail of a powerful small block, this exceptionally clean and diabolically fast Z/28 is an absolute bargain! Documented, well-restored, and a pleasure to drive, you'll be proud to answer, "Yes!" every time someone asks if it's a real Z/28.



If you are going to make a statement like that wouldnt you show the evidence?  Not to mention all the things that are wrong or missing on this car (including the "Caution Fan" sticker)...

I guess this covers their rears..

Please note that all sales are binding and final. Our cars are sold "as-is" with no warranty expressed or implied. Please carefully read the terms & conditions of the sale before bidding. Winning this auction does not entitle you to come inspect the car and decide if you want to buy it, but obligates you to complete the purchase! A $1000.00 deposit via PayPal is due within 24 hours of the auction close ... NO EXCEPTIONS.


Pretty sure this company has been discussed before..

General Discussion / Looking for any info possible..
« on: April 16, 2013, 01:42:51 AM »
I was able to go as far back as I can with the history search on my 68 car.  The first known owner of the car was a gentleman by the name of Donald A Dixon.  He was stationed at Kelly AFB and title was issued 05/01/72.  And a loan for the car was done on 04/12/72 thru Goodfellow Federal Credit Union at Goodfellow AFB in San Angelo TX.  This is the only info I can come up with and is the only info they have in Texas.  I did contact the Air Force and received a letter back stating they did not have any info on Mr. Dixon..  If anyone happens to know of or remembers him or the car please let me know.  Thanks in advance..

General Discussion / Anyone in or from the Austin, Texas area?
« on: December 08, 2011, 03:19:51 AM »
I am looking for a dealership that would have been in the 1968-75 range by the name Armstrong-Johnson.  This was the last known area that my car was before making the trip east to TN and I want to try and track it down to see what info I can dig up.  I have called the Texas DMV with my vin and nothing came back in their records.  Thanks for any help in advance..  Darrell

Decoding/Numbers / Question about the hidden vins vs vin tag
« on: December 03, 2011, 10:38:11 AM »
I thought it was kinda odd that the hidden vin would be off one number vs the vin tag.  Assuming this is possible and chauking it up to human error but wanted to get some of the experts opinions.





This hidden vin is very hard to read but it too is 320496

General Discussion / Just wanted to say....
« on: December 03, 2011, 04:23:37 AM »
Hello and that I have been lurking on this site for a long time but just recently registered.  Great bunch of knowledge here and I truly enjoy reading and seeing all the Camaro knowledge.  Love to learn new and interesting tid bits on these wonderful cars.  My father actually got me addicted to Camaros being an enthusiast himself up until his passing back in 2006.  I have a few myself..

My first car I ever owned and still own.  Bought it way back in 1989 when I was 12 yrs old..  1969 plain jane 307 powerglide.




1967.  Its a true ss/rs but other than that nothing original..  Still in the process of finishing it.




My 1997 SS 30th Anniversary vert Camaro.  One of roughly 120 build with the auto.



Lastly my prized camaro 68 302.  This car has been down since the early 80s and I have known the previous owner since I was a child.  Ignore the R/S lower panel.



Also here is a video of my father waaay back in 1996 when he was on Motor Trend Musclecar Archives.  Anyways great to be here and never to old to learn something new.
