I've search around on the net looking for that color combo on another Z.  I just wanted to see what it'd look like finished.  I've yet to find one (I'm sure they're out there).

Stumbled on this video...Dusk blue Z white stripes and white vinyl top..Complete with the infamous Caution Fan sticker lol...

The FOX Sports 1 commentator is April Rose and she spent quite probably 30 seconds or so with my car before moving on to another ride.  Picture below isn't the best - hard to take a good photo off of the tv, but anyway you get the idea.


Now when you say the pictures not the best are you referring to your car or April Rose? Smiley...
I was there and actually saw both your car and April Rose. Took the time to check both out. I was going up the escalator while April was coming down. Im not sure all the body panels were original but man what a sweet ride...Thats actually very cool that you made it on the broadcast. Maybe I'll see you next year we had a great time this year and have already made plans to go back. Check out the 5 Z28's that were all together over at Victoria Square.

CRG Research Report
1967-69 Camaro Emission Systems

In 1968 and 1969, the California and federal emissions requirements were the same and all cars were built to the same 50-state standard. The AIR system was installed on all L6 cars with manual transmissions, all small blocks with manual transmissions, and all Camaros with big blocks.

It sounds to me that unless you have paperwork to back up a COPO claim, an X44 can be a plane Jane?
Mike

Yep..Thanks the point. The tag is basically worthless and he wants $225 for it. I'd love to know what offers he declined..

File this under joke of the day. X44 tag for sale for $225. Whats really funny is there have been 2 offers for it that were declined.

Yep..No doubt this one is fake. Any pics of the car? It would be interesting to see if in addition to the tag being fake if they screwed up on yhe trim as well and coded it X77 when it should have been X33.

I have a question about the stampings. The partial vin on the transmission and engine do not match. (for instance the font on the 6s is clearly different ). I just recently learned that there are in fact documented cases of this happening but I thought I read they were all really late in the year. This car has a 5A build date. Anyone able to shed some light on this? Did it in fact happen throughout the model year?

Ebay ad mentions a 51 page appraisal upon request. I didnt ask for it but was able to turn it up with a google search. Interesting reading lots of pics

There are other Garnet Red 69 Z cars out there, just have to be patient to find an original, or a nice correct resto.

Or you could just buy a Hugger Orange one because thats what everyone really wants anyway Smiley ...( Sorry Austin couldn't help myself).  Speaking of Garnet Red 69 Z's I vote we go back to Indiana later this summer and pick yours up. Truck and trailer are at the ready just say the word..

Give me your email and I can suggest someone for you, he did my J2 68' Z28. It had lost it's top many many years ago and it's going back on as we speak.
PM sent.. Thanks
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Reinstalling Vinyl Top on: June 16, 2014, 10:24:31 AM
It looks very good the way it is Jack.. Smiley     Did it originally have a white vinyl top??

No on the white top..Its a 72 B car like yours and as near as I can figure it lost the top and got white stripes about 15 years ago. So along with the top I'm going to repaint the stripes black as well.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Reinstalling Vinyl Top on: June 16, 2014, 02:54:34 AM
So I've decided to put the vinyl top back on my car and I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Maybe I'm over thinking this but I feel like this isnt a project I want to take on myself because A) Ive never done it before and B) The original mounting pins were all removed when the car was painted years ago. So that said, I'm hoping someone here might know of someone in the Southern California area that they could reccomend. And while I'm at it anyone have any original trim pieces that they might be willing to part with? Thanks....
