General Discussion / Re: 2015 Z28 vs 2016 GT350R

If Chevy is going to 'outdo' that GT350R, they need a different body than the *over fat* Camaro body they currently have.   hopefully any replacement will be a bit smaller (eliminating the useless back seat would not be a bad thing), and HOPEFULLY provide some driver visibility as to his surroundings.

Ford has answered the old question: 'What beats displacement??"       REVS!!   :)

PS.  Chevy needs to find the engineer who defines the Mustang exhaust systems, and hire him (or her) to be PC.. :)    Mustangs always sound great, regardless of the engine they install...

I had seen the early press releases touting a flat crank and the sound is unbelievable, a symphony to a 'gearhead'. That stuff about Ferrari and the comparison to Ford is not new or unheard of. Read about the Shelby Daytona and the GT-40 programs of the sixties. As I recall, Ford met with Enzo F. and comparing thier success, it goes, Ferrari said Ford would never be a dominant force in racing like Ferrari. Ford took that as an insult and pumped untold fortunes into a racing program just to humble Ferrari.
Too bad, such neat masterpieces are so expensive and low production allowing only the elite to ever relish ownership. Still, I prefer( translate: can only afford, barely) old school, unsophisticated, stab and steer, brute muscle...the smile meter is pegged by this stuff.  I like this Ford (and who wouldn't), despite it not having a bowtie, but I can almost assure you, Chevy may be late to the dance, but their entry will be a 'Cinderella' spectacular response...I hope?

I cannot comment on the both side of cowl stamp. I only have found one set on the LH side (Yes, a Dec. car). Someone got a little creative with my stamp. Not absolutely sure on the B..it is (was) very faint. For posterity's sake.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Old 1960's AC racing spark plugs

Joe, those look more like 1950's era spark plug, including the packaging. In the '60s they had the Fire Ring type with the 4 green stripes around the upper part of the white insulator. I don't know what the application is for the ones you posted.

I've owned the car since 1976, and never noticed the existence of the stamp marks until 2 or 3 yrs ago, and after reading JohnZ's believable explanation of what they meant, I checked and found what I found.  It was more recent than that, after removing my Booster/MC for rebuild that I found a faint '2nd' T mark below the cowl tag. 

As far as explanation, I'm not sure what you mean unless its why they aren't on both sides on all cars?  I suspect that situation is due to having a single person doing that inspection in the Fisher plant, rather than one on each side of the car.

Who's done any serious towing with their Camaros over the years? Got any pictures? I crack up when I think about how much I did it with my 84 Z28 and 93 Z28. I drove from Mass to SoCal (Camp Pendleton) and back, Mass to Florida and back a few times.
The funny thing is, I still have that trailer that a girl in welding shop welded up for me 25+ years ago. Made out of a pop up trailer suspension. Made it a tilt and everything.

Somewhere in Texas or New Mexico.



I towed this jetski and my Harley back from Cali.
