I have to be honest.  Im not surprised by the poll.  I am 35 and I am a little different than most every other person my age.  Growing up my father was my hero and when he was out in the garage working on his or someone elses car I was right there with him.  Going to junkyards, swap meets, car shows and cruise-ins were the norm for me.  All the people that I talk to and hang out with are older because the people my age do not have the same interest as myself and all of you here.  Before I moved back to TN I lived in Bowling Green, KY and while there the big things were and still are the LS cars of the late 90's through todays cars and I actually did a lot of high performance tuning and building of these cars through our performance shop.  If I were a betting man I would venture to say that the current and next generation will have the same interests and desires as we do with the 60's muscle but with the 4th and 5th generation Camaros.  I am afraid that these cars will eventually become as another has said of the post war and 50's cars..  I hope I am wrong but with the increase of prices due to auction houses and people willing to spend stupid money for a car has eliminated most of the "normal folks" that may love the cars equally but do not have the financial abilities.  The another sad thing is the the knowledge of these cars is eventually going to dwindle to just a handful of folks that had the same interests as their parents or relatives or someone that sparked that desire of wanting to understand and fill there minds of the knowledge.

Again I hope I am wrong but this is just an opinion.

And there you have it--do they really understand what changing the chip is actually doing ,probably not. Uggg--one of my older kid's buddy asked the HP of the Anglia--mean avg. of dyno pulls was 680 flywheel@7200. So he tells me he's building a 800hp 4 banger Honda to run in the 8's on NOS.

You can thank hollywood for that..  Tell him 8's for a honda would be respectable in the 1/8th..  lol

very informative link. It looks like the results can vary a bit, and it takes playing with it a bit to get the amount of sheen you want on your end product. Have you tried this little phosphate experiment yet Darrell?

I have and it does take a little while to get the results you want.


Charley, I do not see that the Palmetto is much different than the Phosphate Prep & Etch..  You use the same basic process..  Am I missing something?

Edit:  Mike, you beat me to it..   Grin

There are paints that look like phosphate.  Eastwood is one company.  Phosphate is actually a chemical reaction and it creates a protective layer over the part.

  I assume this is only for the Z-28? I only ask this because of alternator fan/pulley finish differences I have seen between 2-piece and 1-piece pulley/fans designs.
Interesting how they list silver cad several times. I wonder if they confused it with silver zinc plating. I believe John Z stated on another thread that cad was not used much during the 1st gen production because of the known inherited health risks.

Mike

I was thinking that the original prints called out cad or zinc plating as the finish and due to cost & what you referred to was the reasoning for the common use of zinc plate..

There is an option in the poll setup that allows for the changing of a vote.  I don't know if the poll creator can see it but it is available on my screen.


I do not have the option.  Only options I have are adding options or clearing the votes and resetting them back to zero.

So, let a kid sit in your car at the next show...

yes-my dad did one better a few years back. He was showing 2 Anglias at the time. The blown  one caught the eye of a kid with severe disabilities. Helped get him from his chair to the car ,strapped him in and gave him a ride around the lot. I was not there but was told you  couldn't wipe the smile off that kid's face.

That is awesome..  Your dad is very cool for doing that.  Thumbs up!!

Expanding the upper age limit of the poll might produce some interesting trends.  Sixty was so long ago that I have difficulty relating.

Added more to the upper range.

A couple of comments in another thread Mecum z28  about how the younger generation is losing interest in the muscle car age.  So just figured I would find out roughly what the age groups actually are here.
