General Discussion / Re: AACA board of directors
« Last post by Mike S on Today at 06:17:44 PM »
 I was at an AACA (Peconic Bay region)event this past Sunday here on Long Island and one of the two judges commented how he didn't like that the bypass hose was painted Chevy orange. I explained to him it was on the engine during the paint process along with the exhaust manifolds (I have high heat overspray on the manifolds). He agreed with me but still didn't like the way it looks. I don't know if it cost me any points but I have to admit that it was one of the more thorough judged events I have had my car to this summer, and at the end of the day I took home the trophy.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: Inaccurate Partial VIN on Engine!?

OK, as you suspected, that fits perfectly.  99 percent sure that is the original engine for the car.

Since it's low miles and has original components, would you be willing to share the data from the car for the CRG database?  Tag info, VIN, casting dates, etc. ?

Just recently purchased this car.   i knew it had a CE block but i know nothing else about them.  What was the general process of these.  I can see remnants of a 3 and 4 on the pad.  What is your thoughts?  Thanks

How do the rest of the engine component (heads, intake, carb, distributor, alternator) dates compare to the build date of the car?

Jason, what is the build month and week of this car from the trim tag?

Looks like the last 2 digits of the body number on the X77 tag could be 70.

"My plans were to build a Cortez Silver X77 to the genuine original trim tag that matches the 01B date of this X11 all original unmolested Camaro."

He forgot to add the part about then "selling the car for big money and prizes".  :(

Thanks to Doug and others for the support!
Actually,  except for the nomination articles in Antique Automobile,  there is really little "running for office" in AACA,  so any chance for "putting in a good word" is truly appreciated.
On to more important stuff: Chick, are you bringing your car to Hershey? I appreciate what you said about AACA judging. Over time it has become my opinion that any properly restored Camaro should have no problem with our Judging  Guidelines. 
Hope to see any of you at Hershey.  Once again, thanks for the support.

Garage Talk / Re: F Body National Sept 21-22 - Has anyone attended??

No, It would cost a fortune and does not have A/C. Looking at schedule it looks like more of a car show and track event. I'll put the MD show on my calendar.
