I watched 1 episode and they lost me.....these guys been around a long time. Seem to remember them running big block Camaros, " Big Boy's Toys" something like that ,anyway they know their stuff. I hate it when these shows put a distributor in 180 out  to " chase" created problems. Big arguments ,blah, blah, blah...

It was a long time ago.. " Flat Head Forever" generation. He was out having fun with it...

Any more on the car or the old salt flat racer (birthplace of Hot Rodding don't forget ,cut him some slack) Anyone can buy one from a dealer I think they used to say.

Younger guy in Cali building Flatheads still, torch was passed from a legend.

Love when old pics surface of cars that are " alive and well at the track" Remember the NRP article ,fact that it was a Z caught my attention. Believe I saw it in the Summit Motorsports email. Seeing those sort of takes the guilt away of me not wanting to put the car back together stock.

Reminds me also,  Jerry@CHP ,Jim Allen is an Amsoil distributor and the #1 owner of my Z. Last we spoke he dropped quite a few names...your paths ever cross when you're running N/E Ohio/Michigan ?

Pretty car ! From what I see ,lines and gaps are on the money Smiley Plus I'm a fan of the color.

 (personally I run Lucas Plus 20W50 , in the race engine. Very pleased with the performance per post season engine tear down) Also , Lucas, Amsoil , and I'm sure others sell kits where you can have a sample of your oil examined for wear indication. #1 owner of the Z happens to be an Amsoil rep.

Another online post:

I recently contacted the technical department of Lucas oil and inquired about the ZDDP content of the Lucas motor oils.

Here is what I was told
Standard 30W = 1265 parts per million
Standard 20W50 = 1265 parts per million
Standard 10W30 = 900 parts per million (has the seal oil industry seal and cannot exceed 900)
Racing synthetic 10W30 = 3031 parts per million
Racing synthetic 10W40 = 3031 parts per million
Racing synthetic 20W50 = 3031 parts per million

Here is a link to this oil

I have been using 10W30 Kohler Universal Engine oil in my Jeep to protect the Flat Tappet cam as the Kohler oil has around 3200 parts per million ZDDP but I think I will switch to the Lucas Synthetic Racing Oil at my next change now that I know that it has so much ZDDP in it and due to the availability of the Lucas products. The person I spoke with at Lucas assured me that the Lucas Racing Oil would hold up for my normal oil change interval of about 5000 to 6000 miles. Actually even the standard Lucas oil at 1265 parts per million would be more than enough to protect a Jeep 4.0 flat tappet cam.

I still strongly suggest picking up a Chilton's repair manual for your car.  #28280  Very wisely spent 30 or so dollars. ( 24.99 at Autozone)

I have created quite an extensive library over the years. Good place to jot down part numbers ,(consumables) notes about the car ,etc... Then throw it in your trunk with a few basic hand tools. May help to get you home one night if you break down while out cruising.
54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Anyone here heard of this car? Pandemonium on: January 26, 2015, 06:54:05 PM
Chassis would have been out of Cleveland " Lakewood Chassis "   Larry Sikora (bell housings) would have done the welding. If really interested, look him up, he may talk about. He's still welding ,and relatively recently finished a nostalgic funny car for Coughlins. (Jegs). Also welded/fabricated for Mickey Thompson up to his passing. Before my time, but in the 70's all the big name top fuel/funny car folks would bring their cars to his shop prior to the events. Side note: he built the chassis that saved Tommy Ivo in his famous crash.

He's a true craftsman ,one of the guys who wrote the book leading towards chassis development/safety.

The bolt that goes with this Smiley   I remember dropping it years ago ,at the time not the biggest of deals...but it bugs me.

Agree with Bullitt...very crisp , all cylinders hitting, (no smoke) nice "lobe" to it.  Can't beat firing it on a stand  prior to installation. On the race engine I have alignment marks dist/intake.

I love that look in that time frame.

In the mid 70's a friend of my Dad's (at that time) had a 427 factory Camaro. COPO-Yenko, could not tell you. By that time already had the psychedelic paint scheme : purple lace on white. I forgot about the car until I found some pics of it next to the Z. Ran into the owner some time ago. Had long since gotten rid of it. Bad a$$ car ! I remember the noise. It was reported a high 10 car. Really something for a  car driven on the streets in the 70's.  If you search YouTube (vintage Dragway 42) you'll find some shots of it. Also "Big Red" A 67 Chevelle ordered minus 396. 427 added at the dealer (another story for another site). Rode in that car a few times as a kid....him and the "old man"  street raced each other a lot. Hence my love of the high winding small block.

59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Bad Luck is Better Than No Luck; Right? on: January 20, 2015, 07:32:05 PM the fuel by the battery next time on the stand  Wink   ( I am a firefighter.)

Looks like it's coming along nicely. Schedule permitting ,should be finally able to get back to mine end of Feb. ( coming off a much needed skiing vacation, so I'm not complaining) Honestly just been prolonging as I have been undecided on the direction. Never wanted to go back stock , Day 2 was an option, but confines it still. To be continued...

stamped ,as you know ( don't have to pull the part out of storage for this one ,LOL) side's never been in the rain or snow( at least since 76 ,and reported was always a toy) Honestly I don't know if the wipers work because I've never seen them operated ! It'll get a bench test before reassembly.
