Don't forget about " cubic dollars "

This is what makes anything Al prints wonderful reading, David vs. Goliaths. Played by the rules and they were out there "doing it" being competitive.

I was wondering what your old partners are doing. Did they stay in racing or the high performance business ?


BTY...I really have no stomach for cheaters. Love to see who comes out on top in a level playing field, little bit of an idealist.

Hey, I might get to see it. Ordered a stencil kit from him yesterday, and plan on picking up a small list of parts this summer. My wife has family near by so we plan to make a weekend out of it. Found out he knew a couple of her cousins and a 69Z one of them once owned...small world.

Welcome, you happened on a great site. Opinions vary quite a bit ,no 2 cars the same here....build the car you want in your garage. That being said posts above are correct...clean it up ,tune it up ,and go from there. I really cannot think of any questions you might have that cannot be answered here---except the stats on a stock 68 Z fuel pump ! LOL

I use to think I was upper middle class up to about 2000, but in reality it's more lower middle class now. Boy, I can't wait to see what it's going to be like when I OFFICIALLY retire in 2 years. I'm semi retired now and it sucks.  Shocked Roll Eyes

I'm in the same boat, except that retirement is getting farther away rather than closer. I'll have to work 'till I'm 90 to pay off the college bills and eveything else - then maybe I can restart my "hobby" (also read as "affliction").


Both of you are correct....almost behooves you to plan for a retirement "career"  I work with quite a few younger medical professionals in a sideline career, all of them say between 6 figure student loans ,trying to start a family...money really is not available to put a substantial amount away for retirement. They see it as a pipe dream.

Like probably quite a few on this site ,my car's not for sale, but could never really justify buying it what it's worth...hypothetically speaking. Tax time ,always puts me in a foul mood!

Shot the underneath of my plow truck with POR in the fall. We've had a terrible winter in N/E Ohio this year and the paint is wearing well without a trace of rust coming through. Very pleased with the product.
52  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Finally! A Camaro that makes mine look good! on: March 21, 2014, 05:31:28 AM
Somewhere in here I've posted basically the same as above. Probably the worse was the 3 I found when  stationed  in South Carolina during the 80's. All minus motors and trans ,on "seement" blocks in this guys front, what I'd loosely call a  yard. To paint a mental picture: cars haphazardly placed with vegetation growing up about ,dirty little shack of a house with the front screen door hanging off. Worse part that sticks in mind to this day were the little kids who came to the door , filthy.

If I remember right 2 69's and a 68. Offered a good price ( wanted all three ,would have settled for one) "Gonna fix em up one of theses days"

My guess is trees through the floor ,overrun with black widow spiders by now....kids probably have a booming "met" kitchen...really does still bother me when I think about it. Angry

Could have called you "Bandit" !
55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Trim Vinyl top ? on: March 18, 2014, 05:45:29 PM
you know your spoiler is going to hit your rear antennae?

just remember to push it slightly to the side---or you'll chip your paint. Really nice color ,few years back a guy who lived by me owned one that color with vinyl--really looked nice.

Never get enough of those old pics--too bad no sound clip of you winding it up on a straight away. Kinda sound that stands the hair on my arms !
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Order of assembly when painting car on: March 15, 2014, 12:13:41 PM
My comment was based on KO-LEK-TOR's car. He's owned the car since the late 70's and from my readings reported no accidents or other issues which would point to a problem with an out of aligned sub frame. If he just purchased a roller and had no verified history or was replacing his outright of course I would recommend measuring reference points to ensure the chassis is square to build off of. And yes, measuring prior to be safe makes perfect sense. If the car is square to begin with , and he wants it going back exactly the way it came apart with no second guessing, and I'm sure there will be some head scratching, this is why I am bald, I suggested  a few discreet pilot holes for piece of mind. Measure twice, cut once.
58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Hardware to attach Alternator Brkt. to Kustom Headers on: March 13, 2014, 08:35:52 PM
thanks, what I deduce my Z had the Kustoms ( per #1 owner and must have gotten changed out for the Hookers that were on it when purchased in 76 up until now)Luckily I still have the original exhaust , manifolds to tail pipes. Very good condition which verifies it was dropped  early in the life of the car. I'm on the fence with getting a pair of the reproductions. I know fit and finish is A-1, done my homework. Bottom line for me is if a pair were once on it, I'll splurge.

Professional doing the paint and body ,I'm just a set of hands this weekend. I asked prior--6 of one ,1/2 a dozen of another as far as the front end goes to him. Getting assembled for final prep and paint--stripes. When it gets home from the booth it's coming back apart. More work but in the long run ties into our schedules better. Plus this car is retaining all of it's sheet metal, shims and fasteners. (bagged and labeled, pictured and diagramed)Think I read your car also started out rust free. My buddy's same quote, never took one down this clean. Usually re-doing someone's disappointment. I'm just stoked with the idea of having the engine in it , done. Then covering it all up. Many hours leaning over fenders. Going to be nice working on it off the lift with nothing in the way. Like working on something with a one piece tilt.
