Hate to say it, but from my experience solving the problem didn't matter much then and doesn't today either.  It's all about PROCESS and PROTOCOL at the General in many areas....
Try working for the Federal govt.... That's where the saying "Don't make it a federal process" comes from lol. Plenty of the "big fish in little pond syndrome." I can't tell you how many times I've gotten lit up for doing what John did. I still do it though... ;-)

Glad I could/can help! Like I said though, you're going to have to fight my sons to get it out of my garage lol. My 3 yo is geeked that we have two orange 69s. "Daddy, now we have two Camaros, but that ones whole." Thanks for the reminder bud! At least he knows they're Camaros.
 It's safe and secure, so sleep easy Bentley.

Semper Fidelis Marines!

I picked up a 3931067 intake last night. The intake date code is A319. Jan 31, 69. Would that be too early to be "correct" for a 7/28/69 CJF 396?





It's not impossible, but it's certainly not "typical" to have an intake that pre-dates its usage by seven months.
Thanks John.

In MI, you can run year of production plates for a lifetime for a 1-time fee. Easy choice for me....
That's what I'll be doing for my 69. You don't want to know what the 69 396 plate is on for now... It's my DD and tow vehicle.
And that's pretty pitiful in Washington state. I get what they're trying to do, but seriously, no 1969 on a 69 car?

I got this "302" plate for my '69 Z 15 years ago - couldn't believe it was still available without the Mustang guys grabbing it.  Smiley
69 396 was still available. That is until recently ;-) I was pretty surprised. Especially in Michigan.

And finally, I'm going to spam you with a pic of my Camaro just because.
That's not spam, that's 1st gen porn and more than welcome! What a great picture.

Tony at Muscle Car Metal out of Seabrook, NH has a custom subframe that he builds for this purpose. To answer your question "do you just add a frame to the rolling chassis to fit the body?", the answer is no.

I remember watching the tail lights go around the corner when I sold my Z28 to finish school. Not a good feeling. Be thankful it went to a roof over your head. Good luck.

I guess there is a market for about anything....maybe I'll start selling bags of trash and yard waste on this site???
Just call it fertilizer and it will be worth alot of money! lol...

This was taken when I first pulled my subframe out. It's the best one I could find while they were still attached to the car.

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67-9 Fuel lines on: November 21, 2014, 11:26:18 AM
My lines are original and complete with the clips, but they're out of the car. Would pics of those help?
At the tank for starters:


Bad picture, but before they were removed:

Special notes - yes, but not many about the destination. Mostly about the build configuration.

I see MI MFG plates all the time. Heck, I got one on my car.
I see them on different cars zipping up and down 23 all the time. There's a few nice Vettes that I see on M50 all the time with them also.
