General Discussion / Faking Zs Even when you had a L34
« on: November 18, 2016, 02:29:42 AM »
This was a car my father bought/traded in a 65 Mustang for my older brother back in the early 80's..  It was an Ash Gold/Gold Deluxe interior car, L34, 4 speed with a BU diff.  Once my brother graduated high school he had the car restored and it was then known as the black car..  Long story short the car was sold back to my father and he built a nice L78 engine and ran that up until he sold it in the spring of '96.  It went to a chicken farmer down in Bryant AL.  I actually was allowed to get the car out on the weekends and "cruise" around but what my father never knew was I used to street race this car and I was never beaten in the car..   8)  Used to hit the local car wash to get all the rubber out of the wheel wells and off the quarters before going home for the night.  Last I heard the guy who bought it popped the motor and had a truck 454 in it..  Would like to know whatever happened to that car.//

This was from a small cruise-in at our local sand blasting place here in Lebanon, TN.  They have been featured on Horsepower TV and Musclecar a few times in the past.

Garage Talk / Vintage Camaro Magazine Ads and Such
« on: August 08, 2016, 01:27:11 PM »
Since we dont have a drag racing section..   :P  And since I was going through old magazines over the weekend I thought I would start a thread with ads and other stuff from BITD about Camaro and drag racing..


Ill go back at some point and scan in the photos to make them more view-able and readable.

General Discussion / Y55 Battery
« on: June 20, 2016, 12:31:55 AM »
I have read the CRG page on the batteries and I am wanting to make 100% certain that in 68 say a L30 4 speed car (or any other engine option aside from the 302 & 6cyl) could not have gotten the Y55 battery..

This the first 68 DZ block I believe I have seen..   ::)

Someone needs to go back to photoshop school..  Surprisingly I asked for better photos of the stampings through text and I havent heard a peep..

General Discussion / Delco Battery Toppers
« on: February 21, 2016, 10:41:36 PM »
I ordered one of the battery toppers a week or so ago and it came in last week so I went out today and got a new battery.  I cant take credit for this as I have read in other threads and posts of the toppers not fitting all the way down and having to open the holes up.  So I took to the dremel to get it close then used a socket wrapped with 320 sandpaper in a drill to even everything out..  I still have to modify the Delco Eye to make it look correct..  Hope to get to that sometime this week..  I failed to get a pic of the posts in relation to the openings before hand but you will get the idea..  Just thought I would pass this along to anyone else that maybe thinking of going the topper route.

Restoration / Friendly tip on Plastic Lenses
« on: February 14, 2016, 06:41:36 PM »
If you have scratches in your cluster lens or gauge lens dont waste money on new ones.  If you have a DA polisher use it along with #105, 205 & 7 to polish the plastic.  I even did a cluster housing but you have to be careful not to discolor..

General Discussion / Anyone know what these shocks fit?

I have searched and I cant find what they fit..  Anyone know?

Originality / Muncie Shifter Assembly
« on: January 26, 2016, 02:25:16 PM »

I put this in the Originality section due to this piece being preserved.  Purpose was to remove all rust and inspect and reassemble.  I found a new product on eBay called RUSTAWAY which is considerably cheaper than Evaporust and seems to work just as good.  Also using Cosmoline Rust Veto for the protection of bare metal parts. 

Here are the before on the Muncie shifter.
