Jano,
225/60/15 all around. No rubs!  ( JonZ68)---take a look Cheesy  I like.

Currently I have 255-70R15's in the rear ( fills well nice with no interference) 195-70R15's in the front. on the original DF's. Slight rake ,liked the look. Never was a fan of those huge meats sticking out the wheel wells. Don't like tubbed cars. (mini tubbed are cool!)

My slick is a MT  28x9x15 on 8" rally.  no rubs. (posted wrong size on another thread)

May sound silly ,but what size tires ? Great look on it and I'm assuming no clearance issues. Another member (Danny) was inquiring on another thread for his 68. This always comes up and IMO you have the perfect combo. Welcome to the site--steve.

Lot on this topic in Team Camaro--be advised more meat will fit under a 69 then 67/68.

Launch is a little hairy, after that car/engine really feel like they are not even working. Very smooth. Short WB cars are a different beast though, quite an experience.

Back to the shocks, what's a"good ride" is a matter of opinion based on the driver's preference. This is the beauty of an on car adjustable shock. You don't have to do coil overs, standards are available.

Car might have been built on a Monday ,or Friday, or after a holiday Cheesy.

That brings up another point. How many people would buy a car because it was a rare color verses a desirable color they liked. Personally if I'm going to spend that kind of money on a car and have to look at it all the time I want a color I like. JMO

There are a handful of guys on here that liked looking at it, and wished it was in their garage. Now I did not hear them say "I wish I had that car instead of my current Camaro".


Apples and oranges. My Z has been in my life almost 40 years ( in May of 2016). History with my Father, wife, kids...last link to my past as a child. And it'll see some more track time, some more memories to be made. And one day when I'm an old man, the "born with" exhaust will go back on, and It'll haul my golf clubs. So lets get it straight, there is no other Camaro I'd "wish" to have instead, just a few I'd like to have in addition to.

 Not the big block 8 second tube chassis car I want, but a very well done Camaro with some history. Too bad it wasn't wearing a popular color....lots of junk out there does. I'm sure I'll see it  on the block again, cash not tight ,I'm bidding. ( hopefully after the 67/68 BBC tube chassis car!)

[/quote]same reason brad wants to sell kids in college.

And spring semester is due. My #1 priority is my son coming out of school debt free. With a four year degree costing around 100K ,at the low end, we're on the same page. Not to say he might not be in the position to buy it back in a few years. Maybe for less.

some connection to the Z, that 400 block was in the Camaro for around 15 years, the 302 was in the Anglia while it was a street rod.

I'm a real fan of QA-1's.  I've ran Koni's, Comp engineering. Currently I have a set of regular Monroe's in the front which offered a good street ride...


I became a QA-1 fan with the Anglia. We were running coil overs in the rear , Koni's in the front with springs dialed in to the weight of the car. Experimented with springs some to get the front end to launch "lazy" (car hits very hard). Frustrated I went with a set of coil overs in the front, single adjustable shock. Night and day. Never had bad harmonics during deceleration from the get go(springs) When the car is on a hard run is where the difference in shock quality is felt. This is a tube chassis, body welded to frame, engine plate, 89" WB drag car. Very good seat of the pants feel. I run anywhere from 125-140mph,depending on dial in, and the car just handles wonderful, even if peddling. No purposing, or erratic lifting. Wanna guess what's going on the Z when it gets buttoned up?

Simple turn of the knob adjusts compression/rebound. 16 clicks I think off the top of my head. So.. If you want to play at the strip you can lighten the rebound and keep it nose up like a 90-10, or play with it some and get the feel you are looking for on the street. BTY-tech department is great.

Happy 54 old man ! ( I'm still a year and some change from 1/2 a hundred)

Don't know about you but my phone is not "smart" someone told me flip phones are back in style??? what?

Blind without reading glasses, although all are scratched up from "shop use"....safety glasses LOL!

More interest in cars then, ah, other things on the net. (wife knows when I'm on line and say nice...I'm looking at a 7.5 certed tube chassis 67/68) followed by "this is what I'm gettin when the kid's outa college"

"tuners" are a stereo component, a "45" is a record.

Inseam no longer= to waist size

Know all the words to "Stairway to Heaven"

Sometimes get lost looking through a Summit catalog.   LS what ? I miss the world of simply small or big blocks. Although I am a fan of "big cube" small blocks!

Wake up at various time throughout the night for no reason Huh

And will long for  this age in 20 years!! (all in jest!)  Check your mail, AARP card probably waiting---steve.

Car looked like sh&*t in the old pics...body lines off, under hood full of scale. not taken care off. Hope it goes for 60K+, makes mine worth that much more...
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: COPO? on: December 28, 2014, 05:04:33 PM
Very few of theses cars have not been "warmed over" decades ago.


Unfortunately for me no points for unmolested sheet metal and born with block, heads, rotating assembly, tires, ,exhaust  etc...---money is in leaking old 780's. and ER. alternators,  surface rust, LOL.   survivors
