Actually inspected a genuine X33 car 20+ years ago with a dealer installed complete GM A/C system in place - car was for sale, NOM, but a documented vehicle.


x2 but just a few months ago.  Had a camaro expert with me at the time.  You probably know of him..   ;)

Better not - my "barn car" L78 would be front and center.


Don’t worry. I’m still patiently waiting for that phone call to come and get it..  ;)

Thanks Ed. That is what I was after was someone typing the vin so it’s searchable later down the road..  I wasn’t clear in the post.

Thank you Darrell for the quick response. I appreciate the help! Here is the VIN. Anything in your database?

For the record I do not have access to the CRG database nor am I a core member.  I keep my own data for my own personal interests which I have branched out to include all 67-9 solid lifter Camaros if anyone wants to submit their data.   ;D

Restoration / Re: Repro vs. NOS spiral shock tube
« on: January 01, 2019, 07:31:23 PM »
Mike is there a lip around the bottom of the upper tube on the NOS shock? Seems to be a faint line there.
  No lip. It must be the way the light is reflecting off the shock.


I know this was an little older post but wanted to give some insight.  The original & NOS spirals (rears) have a very small and slight "bell" shape to the lower portion of the upper section of the shock.  Here are a couple photos that will hopefully show that.  It is very subtle but is present.

Tail pan.  Thats where the dealer stuck them.  Oddly enough Austin; Bentley hooked me up with a dealer emblem for my 68 Z.  I had one but this one is more the correct era.

Note there is more blue overspray on the rh upper side panel than the left. John Z stated that Fisher hung the cowl vent grille along the side of the roof for paint.

Has anyone confirmed if LOS did anything similar?  Haven't looked my 68 LOS to see if there is a difference left to right.  Also anyone have a photo of how it was mounted or angle?

BTW great photos Jim.

"the Camaro] is a nice stepping stone before entering the Corvette hobby"
What a crock. If I wanted a Vette I'd buy one instead of a Camaro. Sorry for the rant but I do get sick of the nose in the air attitude of many Vette owners.


100% agree..

Looks like someone thinks it worth the asking price. Supply & demand.

Seems to have the correct big block fuel line.  Which is a good sign.
