31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 396 350hp fuel pump on: March 10, 2014, 02:14:49 PM
You're welcome. Hope this helps. From more reading from the same poster, it looks like "K" might actually be 1971. Mine was a late 69 build, so the pump I have is more than likely a warranty replacement.

From DCL70SS on CRG:
"The first letter is the month, A=Jan, "B"=Feb. ...........................L=Dec. (the letter "I" was used).
The second letter is the year, E=1965, F=1966, G=1967, H=1969.
NOTE: The AC pumps made in 1964 and prior do not have the 2 letter. I have an AC pump stamped only "4657" from a 1964.
Sometime in the early 1970's the date code changed to 3 numbers (the day of the year) and one letter (the year)."

More info from what appears to be the same user that says K is 71

Congrats to both of you guys! Buenymayor's car looks great. ko-lek-tor, I'm happy to see you have things back underway. It's a great feeling I'm sure. I'll keep an eye out for your posts. Maybe I can pretend it's my car getting some wrench time seeing how they're almost twins.
33  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 62-64 Nova Hemi Hilborn injection gasser pictures help on: March 10, 2014, 11:31:34 AM
I know this isn't Camaro related, but you guys are always a great source of information. I'm looking for the needle in a haystack. I'm looking for pictures of my father's drag car from back in the 60s and 70s. There are a ton of pictures of it out there somewhere, but I don't know where. The last pictures seen were at a World of Wheels show in Boston back in the 80s. A track photog was selling them. My dad is a very modest guy and was never interested in pictures so he didn't keep too many.
 He raced mainly at New England Dragway, but at several other tracks in Connecticut, NY, Jersey etc.
 The description of the car is pretty straight forward: 62-64 Nova orange hilborn fuel injected 426 hemi with the stacks sticking up out of the hood. Straight front axle. There were no stickers etc all over it. When it was racing it had a set of magnesium mags on it. If memory serves me right they were Torque Thrust style, but could have been American racing or something similar.
 I'll post in a couple of other places, but figured I'd give it a shot here. Thanks for any help.

Here is a pic of mine. This one is date coded 1973, which means it was obviously replaced at some point, but it's the correct pump and number. Mine is an L34 like yours. Good luck.

Nothing wrong with a nice 4th gen. I miss my 93 Z28. It was a great driver and did pretty well at NE Dragway in the late 90s.

Mine:





What mine wishes it did... always loved this action shot.

124379N609965  ZL1 #27

Here's the real story on the car: http://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/306777/1
Yes, it was rebodied in 76 - the floor had been completely hacked out of it - and it was sold as a drag car. The VIN was then removed from the drag car (with most of the #27 parts still on the drag car) and put on another body - the one for sale I believe.
Wow, what a story. I hope someone can mate the real VIN tag back with the original body at some point. It's a shame to know they're separated. At least the guy that did it is open and gave up all the information about it. It makes the research a little easier for someone.

"Liberal Argument Playbook - Use these tactics when debating conservatives:

 1. Ignore Facts that hurt your position. When that doesn't work...
 2. Blame President Bush. When that doesn't work...
 3. Call them a racist and then run away!
   Note: If facts continue to come your way, repeat steps 1-3"

 Until the unions stop giving money to the left, they are going to continue to sink. If you give your money to a union, you are supporting the left completely right now. I see guys getting out of the union constantly because of that. Think about it if you are a union steward, president etc. Time for some union policy changes if you want to survive.
 I can't believe you guys allowed me to get into this on the internet lol. Over drinks next time ok?
Not going to quit? Sometimes it is easier to attack someones character then to debate the issue. FACTS are FACTS and OPINIONS are OPINIONS (sometimes based on facts) If someone is getting their information from CSNBC they might tend to disagree w/ the "facts" reported on FOX. If someone is getting their information from FOX they might tend to disagree w/ the "facts" reported on CSNBC. However belittling and ridiculing a person based on their assumed political affiliation aq determined by their OPINION does not make for a healthy debate of the FACTS.


Back to the Pretty Cool Ole Car... and examples of FACTS vs OPINIONS

FACT: The car came from the factory painted Olympic Gold

OPINION 1: Olympic Gold is the best color ever
OPINION 2: Olympic Gold sucks out loud

FACT: The car is not a Z/28

OPINION 1: Too bad it would be really cool of it were a Z/28
OPINION 2: Who cares? I'm not a Z lover

FACT: The paint is in poor condition

OPINION 1: Looks fine. Clean it up, drive it and call it a survivor
OPINION 2: Restore it and paint it Hugger Orange. All '69 Camaros should be either Hugger Orange or Azure Turquoise, except the one (also not a fact) that came painted Champagne.

FACT: The CRAIGSLIST listing has expired

Thanks for not kicking me off of the site !!!
Take it easy there Francis...

Are you sure that is a weld, and not just a painted bushing?
I agree. Looks like the rubber bushing painted over. Did you try pushing your fingernail or screw driver etc into it?

That doesn't look like overspray to me. Hard to tell in the pic, but it looks like it goes right under the hinges and the rust seems to be feathered over that paint. Hood insulation might have stopped somone from cleaning the rusty areas and the orange you see could have just been maintained better. Just a theroy...

From "Jim" on the Yenko site: "The 69 Pace Car camaro that was pictured here in the Turkey Rod run friday picts met an untimely end on its way home last week. A very good friend of mine bought it and was tranporting it back home to Pa. I left Daytona Sunday at noon headed back to Pa only to encounter 3 accidents slowing 95 just north of Daytona, cruised thru Georgia to wind up stopped just south of the South Carolina border, i had exited to get food when my phone rang . My paniced neihbor told me he had been in an accident at mile marker 5 in S.C. and he needed my help. It took me an hour to get 5 miles. What I saw was not easy on the stomach but he was unheart. His Duramax dually, 35 foot 2 car trailer and 69 Pace car got tangled up and slid jacknknifed backwards down a 65 foot ravine rolling everything over and over. You wont beleive someone walked away from this. I need help to post the rest of the pictures on here ."
The trailer ball snapped off. Supposedly the car went to Cali to get repaired after the insurance company sold it to a new owner with a salvage title.

I thought I saw them fix that one? I can't recall. I remember seeing posts about the accident and remembering how sick I was for the guy.

Government doesn't care, and there is not enough of the public that is actually engaged in politics to stand up and make a difference. IMO the general public, pays very little attention to politics until a presidential race, and even then they are only listening to a 30 second commercial and who looks likable to make their decision.

Sorry, this always strikes a nerve with me. In my short life span I have seen people get dumbed down by TV, and told what to think by its news anchors and talk show hosts.The media is a huge blob of influence now. John Q public just wants his sports, or tv show, un-interrupted. If they can get paid (unemployment, food stamps) to stay at home they will continue to vote for the party that helps them do this.
The honest days work, the pride of making it on your own has turned into "you didn't build that". I guess thats why the vehicle hobby is so great, it is a instant source of pride, each vehicle represents an effort by the owner, a extension of them and a source of pride. There is a sense of pride and freedom in turning wrenches for me.
I wish the rest of the country would find themselves, and get back to being the best workers in the world. Tune out the media and get involved with turning this country around politically.
Very well put.     OP: Lots of potential. Seems like a solid project. Hard to tell from pictures, but worth a look. I'd probably leave as is/preserve and maybe put the vinyl top back on.
