46  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: new restoration endevour on: November 24, 2013, 12:28:33 PM
OK, My late father purchased this Jimmy new in 1954 (55 1st series) He drove it daily for 30 years and put over 500,000 mile on it. (still retains the original speedo which was still working at last drive)

It had the motor R&R twice the tranny replaced and rebuilt once and the rear end replaced once. Always retained the 6 volt electrical system and has never had a body panel replaces or repainted.

Then the GMC became a victim of poor storage Sad

Is this a SURVIVOR ? just curious.

My thought is that neither one of the cars pictured in this post look like they have "SURVIVED" anything. I think that these cars can be repainted and reconditioned at a fraction of the cost of complete restorations and the owners shouldn't feel bad rehabbing them. In fact they should feel good about improving the car's quality of life.

If you are comparing a high performance BB or SB (11:1, high lift & duration cam) to a typical stock motor of course yours won't sound or perform as good. You can easily over spend on headers and exhaust and it will just sound like a stock motor w/ headers and dual exhaust. louder may not be better.

I know this is not camaro related..... but I know some of you were in the" Nam" during 1965 thru 1974. And for you younger guys, you can see what  these brave men had to endure. Vietnam Lost Films. The Beginnings ( 1964 - 1965 ) 1/6  Terry P. S. How many times have we heard of the servicemen coming home and buying a camaro...
and many never came home..   and I heard of many, and know of at least one '69 Z28 which sat in his parents carport for many years.... in the last '70's, still waiting for the return that never happened....  It was a gorgeous azure with black vinyl top car..  that was one of the first Z28's I'd ever seen with the smog still intact, and I have no idea now what happened to it..   and forgive me for this one..  but in October of '69, while I was in the USAF, I ordered a lime green roadrunner HT... and I don't know where it is now either.  Smiley

You wouldnt have been stationed in Texas by chance around the 69-73 time frame?

54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: 69 owners with "Pebble-grained" steering wheels (not shrouds) please check in on: September 24, 2013, 02:09:07 PM
Correct me if I am wrong but isn't the "pebble-grained" steering wheel that you are refering to and what GM refers to as the "grip assist" steering wheel the same? This should be included in the z23 option unless the wood grain wheel was ordered. Are you trying to document the factory's build accuracy as related to  this option package?

He is hiding "fisher" from "BODY BY FISHER* doesn't want you to suspect that a fisherman found it under water!!!

Sorry if my original post seemed kind of sarcastic. Maybe I'm just bitter that I sent a 69 away to the crusher that still had a usable roof,firewall, and cowl tag. Just seems at some point to be too far gone. 1f you have to replace 75% of the sheet metal, 100% of the running gear and interior, 90% of the glass and 100% of the trim, what do you really have?
I guess that's why I kept the VIN and Cowl tag from the one I sent it away.

Maybe if they moved the cardboard you could see the gas tank through the rust holes ?
60  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: original paint 69 Z on ebay... "survivor" on: September 05, 2013, 01:00:28 AM
i zoomed in on the rally stripe pics. To me they look added or like a later repaint and not the original lacquer. The ride height looks good to me and I think that the protect-o-plate picture is intentionally blurry for privacy of original owner info.  Anyone? Anyone?
