I would too enjoy coming.  Not sure if I would bring anything.  But definitely love to come and meet everyone; see and hear the stories.
137  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Do You Still Have Your First Car? on: June 27, 2014, 06:43:46 PM
I stole this idea from another forum and thought might try it here to see if any else has their first car.  Here is my story on my first car.


I know I do not post on very much but I thought I would add to this thread.  The car sold new at my local Chevy dealer to a guy here in town in early 1970 (late build 69).  His neighbor bought it from him in '72 and she drove it until 1978 when she pulled out in front of someone and was t-boned..  The car sat until my father was talking to a guy and he was telling him about a '79 Camaro that might be for sale.  We didnt think much about it but I thought that might be an OK first car.  When my father talked to the guy again; he said did I say 79??  I meant 69...  At that point, I was in.  We went to look at it in Nov of 1989 and brought it home.  After several hours on a frame machine, body work the car was repainted in Rallye Green (I hated Frost Green at the time; wish I wouldnt have been so ignorant at the time).  Once the car was finished and road worthy we took it back to Mrs. Brockett (2nd owner) for her to see the car could be fixed (when she wrecked the car the insurance totaled the car and she just bought it back thinking she might get it fixed one day).  When we pulled up she came out and first things out of her mouth were; "I see you put one of those "humps" on the hood..  And you added that "flip" on the trunk.."  Needless to say, she was happy to see the car again on the road.  When I was a senior in high school I pulled the 307, powerglide & 10 bolt out and slide in a mild built 350, Muncie M20 & a 12 Bolt with 3.55 gears.  I still have the car and once I finish my other projects it will return as a LS turbo powered drag radial car one of these days.

Post pictures of your trunk lid.  I think I can help with the differences.

I cant remember 100% on a q-jet but I want to say it opens to about 2/3s the way.  It should only be open about a 1/4 inch when choke is on.  If memory serves me.

Make sure the choke is coming off and not sticking closed.

Those studs were actually for chroming/dipping purposes.Most chroming companies removed them after the process some dealers requested they leave them on.When I worked at a Chevrolet dealership a memorandum came down from GM to stop using pinned emblems the the trunklids were rusting from the drill holes and had to be repaired under warranty.Thats when the all emblems were to be doubleside taped.

Good to know!  Thanks!

Did the dealership you called send that to you Darrel?  OR did you find it elsewhere?    Regardless it looks neat, and will enhance your car.. Smiley


No I havent heard a word from the dealership.  I called last week just to touch base with them and left a message and of course I still have heard nothing.  I got this from a guy over on yenko.net; he has a bunch of different ones and I just happen to see it in a post and pm'ed him about it and bought it from him.  Great guy and was happy to help out another car guy..

Scoop's (Larry's) 68 RS/Z is one sweet ride.  He sent me pics of it once he was there.  This is just making me want to go next year..  Is it me or was there not a lot of 68's at the show?  At least by the pics at this point.
147  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Frederick Nationals ... on: June 23, 2014, 02:47:36 PM
thanks for the pics Gary. I couldn't quite read the placard on the green 69 Z. What was the significance of that car according to the plaque?


Says:  "The ONLY Documented Z with a X11 Trim Tag and a "M" Code Block"

Other than that it is too small for me to read.

Great pics thus far!!  Got any more 68 pics for the few "8" junkies among us?

No hard time taken.  I appreciate your correcting my post...  (but you should know that it could turn into an almost full time job!).. Smiley

Ill just keep the corrections for 68 comments.  Ill let someone else have 69's & 7's..  lol  Lord knows I been wrong more than once or twice..    Roll Eyes  Thats what I like about this place we can all talk about things and make corrections without everyone getting all butt hurt.  Well most of us..   Shocked

Ok done hijacking..
