16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z/28 Barn Find?? on: January 25, 2014, 06:24:37 PM
When we pulled the engine/transmission  on my wife's car; for a rebuilding, we pushed it into an empty corner of a building my family owned.
I took my time rebuilding the engine; had a friend rebuild the transmission.    Just in the time it took to rebuild those, the under side of
her Camaro was home to many spider webs,  dust etc, that we had to clean off before reinstalling the engine/transmission.

Its always amazing to see a car labeled "barn find"; when the car looks really good.

As a  small boy watching my dad and his brother work on dad's 59 Impala.   His Impala had the Chevrolet painted on the valve covers;
and I recall thinking, "I wonder how they painted that on there, to look so good."

My cousin's new 1969 SS never had suede on the rear window garnish moldings.   I remember it very well; we washed the car and the windows (inside and out) many times for rides in the car.   My 69 doesn't have it in the rear either; (its kind of a low gloss black)   or on the auxiliary speaker grill, and I've owned it for 38 years.

Some car's must have  received the suede treatment from  Charley's picture of his car.   It would be interesting to see someone research the subject.

My thoughts:  just when you think you've seen and heard it all,  something more amazing shows up!

How right you are Ko-le-tor.   It wouldn't shock me  to see someone  trying to sell a  full size Camaro  model :-)

The reproduction parts do not impress me;  it doesn't matter what it is, it is not as good as original.   My worst experience was:  I once had the idea it would be pretty cool to have "reproduction of original" belts on my 69.   Installed the water pump/alternator belt in my garage; warmed up the car, a short drive around town, and then checked the tension on the belt.    My wife came home and we went for a  drive out to the highway (and back)  the belt broke after 5 miles of highway driving.  It turns out the "reproduction" belt was made in china.   Now the 69 rolls along with a quality  made in the USA  belt, and no worries.    Jim

My cousin came back from the war and bought his new 69 Camaro; orange with white interior.   Dad and I drove over to see the  car; and it was really impressive,  it did not even have license plates on it yet.   We walked around the car from front to back and the smile on dad's face turned to a frown.
"why did you paint that ugly black paint on the back of a new car?"  Dad didn't like it.   "It came that way"   was the answer.   My recollection is that it was neither a bright gloss or a dull flat black.  Something in between; we always wondered why they selected that kind of paint for the tail panel.  I saw the car up
close a lot; the deal was.......
"wash and detail my car and I'll let you ride around in it with me."  So my younger cousin and I spent many  hours detailing that car out.  Good
memories.

Glad it worked out for you.   Refreshing news to hear of a company that did the right thing for their customer.

Such a paradox;  the thought comes to mind,  "what were they thinking?"

Imagine seeing that in the spring; the rear end dragging as it's loaded down with little plants, lawn seed, and sod..............

Our thermostat housing has a provision for a return spring.   Concerned about throttle shaft wear;  I added a front spring  years ago.  It doesn't look correct; but the extra spring is easy  to remove.  A slightly different "feel" on the accelerator pedal ; is the only difference during driving.

I've lived in the south during my career.   Who knows why I ever returned to Omaha, Nebraska Huh??    My wife is from LA and we love our Camaro's, but they are off the road 4-5 months each year.  It sure does seem like the winters are getting colder & longer.............
