I turned 16 in Dec of 76. I could not wait to take driver ed. at school because I would not get my license until the end of school year, so I went to a private driving school and got my license in Jan. of 77. Dad dictated what we could drive and bought us cars because he wanted something safe. I did not like my choices. Ist I got my older brothers car, a Mercedes 220 Diesel. A uncool slug of a car. Then, a 69 Cutlass 2dr 6 cylinder that dad got from his insurance guy. It was his son's car. It was Robin Egg blue(yuk). I worked at gas stations and tire stores because I wanted to learn how to work on cars. I bought air shocks,painted the rear axle yellow,cut off the NEW exhaust to make it loud(although a sick sounding drone) and put bald wide tires I took off a "hippie van" at the tire store on ralleyII wheels also freebies from the store. After working the second summer and now, 17, I bought my own ride, a 67 SS Chevelle 396. Dad was not happy at all! That fall, he sent me to Military School. Upon graduating in 79. I bought the 2 69 Camaro I still have and another 67 Chevelle SS (Maroon). Sold that when I married, but still have a soft spot for 67 Chevelles and would like another someday. Green P.U. in background is a 71 Chev 3/4 (still have it as well!). Cutlass in background in 1st pic. Dad got rid of it when he found out I was going to put a 389 tri-power in it that I was dealing on. Wish I had kept a set of those Cragars. Tongue

That's an easy one,  Steve Powell has done some incredible work on all types of radiators. He has done many one off, unique and exact fabrication work on Pebble Beach Concours level cars. He knows details and knows GM 60's radiators. I know you would be happy with what he can perform and the attention to detail.

My 68 Camaro is my first car. its been with me since I was 8. My grandfather found it in the paper and bought it. we spend the next 7 years restoring it. He only worked on it when I could after school and sports. we did all the bodywork, engine work. had a guy shoot the color on the car and then we did all the reassembly. Got it finished right before my 15th birthday. I learned how to drive a stick in the car. Im now in the process of putting original parts on the car to replace some of the cheap stuff I threw on when we put it together originally to get it on the road. My car will never got back to 100% original. I hate the factory colors (Matador Red with a black vinyl top) but I love the factory 327 ive just dressed it up like a Z/28. Kinda doing a what if chevy built a L79 Camaro.
Lest we old timers forget, we have a young lad among us. My friend, you already have what us older guys/gals have, and that is memories! Keep up the good work and cherish the moments and friendships your car will produce.

Sad thing is I have 1 hole the size of a quarter were a mouse got in years ago ,in the rear panel .Other than that it would present as new.

I too had a hole above visor from dang mouse. When I pulled it down there was the other 1/2 of the seat stuffing and the reek of urine,yuk! It's hard to know where to stop in this resto process, keeps eating the bucks! Mice,rats and whole new meaning to throwing money down a rat hole.

Gary, If I had witnessed all those cars being shredded,like you, I would still be in intense psychotherapy,lol. As a teen though and without that perfect hindsight, running a crane was probably totaly fun and cool.
53  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Frederick Nationals ... on: June 27, 2014, 08:20:25 PM
While at the Nationals I met a guy from CRG and we talked about my car having the wrong year trunk lid. He mentioned he had several nice lids. I wrote his name after our conversation but can't find it now. If you read this can you contact me, I am very interested. I need a nice late 68 - early 69 lid. George

X2...let me know too. Meaning I need a better lid. I know the 69 lid has tabs on the underside lip where it meets tail panel, A couple of mine have dates a couple don't. Someone else might chime in with exact ID in addition to what I mention. Will find a pic. bottom of post shows 68 lid with tabs,like 69 early before 3/69.

 came in the box with my 1969 dated NOS 302 pan.

Regards -
Not intending to HiJack, but I have never seen or heard of a dated oil pan? Where would date be located?

Good Morn' Lawrence, looks like you forgot the link. You must have stayed up too late looking at CRG,lol.
56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Purpose of this bracket?? on: June 25, 2014, 06:45:36 PM
Looks like only single exhaust cars. I don't see any reference to it in the N10 or the NC8 option pages.


To clarify Gary, single exhaust usage only, but ALL cars got it regardless.

Yea Scott, I'd knew it would score way up there by the pics I've seen and knowing your tenacity to make 'er right. Congrats. Beautiful ride.

Well...  I have been gradually accepting the label of 'Hoarder' that my wife calls me...  and now..based on this last post, I suppose I have to begin accepting 'Long Time Hoarder' as a more descriptive label, since I've got parts I've never used that I obtained long ago.. ie. a '68 Muncie that I bought in '71, etc..  Smiley...  .. but actually the 70s were a great time for collecting 60's and 70's parts... Smiley
I don't see anything wrong with that...guess that makes me one too!! Roll Eyes Wink Grin

"There's a Sucker born every minute" (attributed to P.T. Barnum), and this sucker went for some good coin, IMO. Is a title worth that much? Apparantly so, as that is all that's left. Also, $6,400 for the Yellow one that OP asked about.
