Bullitt65;  you may be right about it depending on the day, mood and who was spraying, if it were masked off.   My car is 08C too; but not masked off.

Reading this tread prompted me to go out and look under my hood(Norwood assembled car).   No P T B stamps are seen on either side; although thinking back over 40 years, it seems that there was at least one side stamped when it was purchased.   It would be really cool if they were still there, but I can't see any, so its alright.

I've never heard anything like that, and can't see how the owner would know a story like that.   It sounds like nonsense to me

Convertible big block reminds me of buying my 69.  When 18; dad and I drove to the local chevy dealer to look over the Camaro's.  They had 2; a red with black vinyl roof, and a bright yellow convertible 396.   I wanted the convertible; dad wanted the convertible, unfortunately my mother was in tow with us.   One look at that 396 and the sales guy saying; "it might be too much engine for the boy" was all she needed to hear.  (Last time; we took mom car shopping with us.)   I paid the down payment and the red "small block" was mine!  Little did she know............

Back on topic,  if its a real tag, they should have used the correct rivets to re-attach it to the car.           Jim

I like it!    Wish it were in my garage!  Old unrestored cars have always been extremely interesting.    Jim

You are right,  it does make a person wonder how a distributor could be guaranteed original.   Jim
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1111499 Distributor Question?? on: August 31, 2013, 07:02:05 PM
I don't know; the numbers do look very "crisp";  stamped deeper, and more defined than our distributor.  It is very clean; but they do clean up nicely.  It was surprising how easily our's cleaned up with a little time and dedication.   I'm not an expert on distributors; so janobyte's suggestion is a good one.   What will everyone else think.    Jim

Your pictures look just like my car.   Body color, over spray, trunk splatter paint "splattered" on.   Not an abundance of body color or splatter and some area's on the tail panel with neither.

Indeed it is interesting MO;  you're right,  all the pictures are clear except the trim tag.  Clear enough to see the "hit and miss" aerosol spray can paint job on the suspension.  It would have been better to have not painted the suspension at all.    Jim

 
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Crane XR-i points conversion question. on: August 01, 2013, 03:14:59 PM
Our 69 runs well with its points; we run a quality set and carry a spare set. The spare has never been used yet..   A friend had his electronic conversion  fail on a cruise last year, his 67 arrived back at his house strapped to the back of a flat bed tow truck.
In the past I had tried electronic on another Camaro we owned;  no change at all in engine performance, but it wasn't a race car and didn't see a lot of  high rpm's.
It's a personal choice; if you want a rev limiter, try electronic.   You can always change back if you want.
