I wish that we could have gotten blue houndstooth in a camaro!
Beautiful combo - the cars - the colors - all of it!

I'm glad we have that out of the way, the L78 Pacer I am doing now will have it body color.

Sounds like you have the arm adjusted right, yes the fast idle should be more than 1100-1200 -I believe 2200 is correct, it does seem high to me as well, however mine is in that area as it will cost me points in NCRS judging.
FWIW if the intake is REALLY cold it needs the engine speed to keep the fuel in mixture- try driving one straight off start and they wheeze, pop, and snort.

General Discussion / Re: Storage during off season ?
« Last post by firstgenaddict on Today at 04:34:48 AM »
Fresh oil change prior to storage would be the only thing if storing for any length of time, that way there is not fouled oil sitting in the bearings and crank case. 
We drive our cars at least once a month during the winters if not more, so it's not very frequently that they are sitting for more than a few weeks.

Restoration / Re: Help needed - 69 COPO brakes and firewall

You will chase water leaks if you don't put some sealer around the speedo cable retainer holes, and the cowl induction harness clip hole.
There are some good photos of the sealer on original cars around here.
The accelerator pedal pass through is difficult to get in place with the firewall pad installed.

**Remember to install your pass kick panel before putting in the heater box. IT IS WAY EASIER and much less likely to scratch the kick panel or force you into having to tweak it.

Just curious is to why the trim tag on Norwood 707 cars has Y for yellow interior paint for metal trim on the upper right corner of tag?

For the 707 interior the carpet and dash are gold and the tops of the doors and around the back are painted yellow.  It is the only Camaro interior for '67 with two different painted colors.

We have owned an '89 Camaro RS convert for 27 years. Same procedure every year: fill the tank, wood under the tires, battery tender, do not set the parking brake. Not started for at least 6 months, fires right up come spring.
