  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.

Something I noticed was the first pic shows the power steering cap as the plastic multi rib top.  When was the transition from the other 2 rib metal cap?  My Nov built 307 car had the 2 rib metal cap..?..  Was it another case of multiple suppliers?
I've been watching PS caps for years - never seen an original 69 Camaro with a metal one. Possibly other car lines.....
There was a big discussion about them in the past.

I found the thread after a search & I am still not sure it can be 100% confirmed that all 69's came with the plastic cap...  Personally I would think either or would be acceptable (assuming the metal cap was painted black).  67-8 would be zinc'd or natural.  I actually just re-zinc'd 2 metal caps this morning.  One was painted black with zinc underneath & the other was just zinc...  One that was just zinc has a longer plastic dipstick & is clear or yellowed from age.

Could also be that Delco colored the lettering for the 69 year were previous years it was left blank..??.

Its crusty but has the guts.  Not sure if its a BS ad or what.  I sent the seller a couple questions to see if this is legit.
