Without seeing, and I am sure a pic will come soon, I am guessing the holes were for a modification that would have a special discharge nozzle that squirrted fuel into the secondaries as well as the primaries acting much like a double pumper. A drag trick for sure. Many felt that the Vacuum secondaries were inferior, not understanding how to properly set up a vac. secondary carb. There IS NO problem with vac. secondary carbs, just a bunch of Hocus Pocus sold to an ignorant bunch who insisted that carbs could be made better. This mod. was usually accompanied with a gear driven mod. attatched to the throttle rods to mechanically open the secondary barrels simultaneously with the primaries...what a messed up idea,IMO.

Definately do not want to hijack topic, but a COPO is for sale also on eBay that does not have spoilers. Weren't all COPOs (L72) spoiler mandatory trim cars too? I thought? I know the Z in question has the spoilers and trim tag is wrong, so I am not confused on topic and perhaps should have a new post, just was on my mind when reading about D80.

21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: December 31, 2014, 08:28:43 AM
Bentley, I think Kurt is referring to the stamping font on the  gang stamp not matching, not that the vin numbers are different.

That (font and any other irregularity in partial VIN stamp comparisons of matched block vs trans) is also what I refer, apologies for any ambiguity. If another unit (I.E. trans. or other major component) was exchanged during the assembly process because of damage on the line, the new unit would have had to have the partial VIN added on the line. That replacement's stamping may not be identical in appearance to the engine block's stamping .

Disclaimer: I am no JohnZ and was not involved in any automotive factory. This is just a supposition and opinion of what may have occured to explain irregularities in appearance of partial matching component VIN stampings. Shoot, I have not been through the Norwood plant since I toured it as a Cub Scout in 1970! I was 9 years old! Y' all have a Happy, safe, productive, New Year...like a fine wine, all our cars will literally become a year older tomorrow.

I've seen a few examples in 69 where they didn't match.
I guess I try to understand why there is a mismatch in some stampings when that is noted. John certainly could verify this, but a plausible reason, IMO, is that in a hurried environment and some carelessness factored in, some trans or other units may have gotten damaged before they made it into the chassis and had to be replaced, hence a different stamping. Just throwing that out there while it was on my mind.

New Yahoo article that I thought may interest T/A fans. https://autos.yahoo.com/news/daytona-winning-firebird-actually-camaro-153039013.html
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: COPO? on: December 28, 2014, 01:56:44 PM
Ah yes, I saw that one too. I'd leave it as is and drive it like I stole it...providing the subframe doesn't fly out from the rust and torque,lol. A few good holeshots should loosen up what loose rust is there.

Thankful for the Lord seeking me out at the age of 26- PTL and thankful for those He has put in my path this past year, much thanks to all that have been a blessing to me here. Looking forward to a better, more productive New Year.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: in case anyone is interested on: December 23, 2014, 08:50:54 PM
I wonder if any CRGers know anything about the whereabouts of the traded in car at the bottom of the yellow paper work? 68 Camaro N355597?

That's why I'm such a fan of this site, like-minded people who often go the extra mile to help a fellow member.
Glad you got the car with no issues or missing parts Bentley; is that the X22 car?

...no issues or missing parts Bentley; is that the X22 car?  Issues, missing parts? , not sure about this as I have not had a chance to look over my parts or the work completed, so there may be an issue or something missing, won't know this for awhile.
X22 car? Yes! Thanks Tim, you are one of the great ones here, if I may ad.

What would t136 mean. Shouldn,t that be an X code on a 12D car?

A: It is a Van Nuys car, so no.
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / A Friend in Need... on: December 18, 2014, 07:18:45 PM
...is a friend indeed! Although there are several interpretations, I always translate as: real friends help when you are in a time of need. And I was in real need and SgtHawkUSMC gets a huge thanks from me as well as CRG and what it provides to the hobbyist.
My Camaro has been at a body shop/restoration shop for 8 months. I got some disheartening news recently. The guy is closing shop, so he says, and would not be finishing my car as agreed. He informed me I had to pick up my car and all loose parts(many) by the end of the month. I planned on renting a trailer , but weather, here in the Midwest, is unpredictable and an open trailer was not the best scenario. In my desperation, I reached out to SgtHawk and asked if he had time to help me get my car? This was on a Friday (last week). He quickly replied and hastily came up with a plan to meet me at the shop in Ft. Wayne, In. the next day, Saturday (I am East of Cincy, Ohio, Hawk is in Mi.). I am glad to say that it all went off without a hitch and Hawk has my car at his house now. I am thankful that there were no problems getting the car and I am not as stressed and concerned about the car's well being now. I did not have a bad experience with the body guy and stayed amicable and cordial although I am deeply disappointed that I still have an unfinished car with so much time passing. I just wanted to convey the gratefulness of members, here, to help me and even though I hated to ask of this quick favor, Hawk rose to the challenge and for this I give my thanks. Hope to find someone local to finish car as another saying comes to mind: "Once bitten, twice shy". I may take it to another member, here, to finish, but this long distance experience has not been real positive.
