SO out of thousands of Camaros, this could be the first I have heard of re-uniting the original motor with the Car after so many years apart.
Really? I know of more than 10.....
Cut him some slack, Bullitt does not want to acknowledge the H.O. re-unitings,lol.
I remember the car in Texas with the L78 , http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9450.0  I think you put him in touch with the original car Kurt?! Then there is a fellow CRGer that has a L78 69 block that the original car's owner was not interested in obtaining.

 The guy I bought my 67 rs from was offered the original 327, power glide, console and shifter and didn't want them.When I called the guy this week who had sold him the car. He was flabbergasted he didn't want them. Sold all that stuff within a week of selling the car.Good news is he has a can paint for me to touch up some stone chips.

 I think with all the information out there such as the orphan section here it would be easy to get more motors and such back together with their cars. But how many of us take the time to get interested in the history and stories of our cars? For every member here their must be 20 who are oblivious or plain just don't care or believe the story that the car they bought is matching #'s.Its not until that one owner that buys something and takes that keen interest in searching the history that things get back together.

Kurt yo have been a member of the CRG much longer than I have, and you hold the keys to the orphan section and posses a huge library of Vin numbers and motor stampings. I would hope you have seen many and continue to do so, and help with the putting people in touch with such info. Your service to our members doesn't go un-noticed.

This is the first one I have seen. I really like the way Rick stick with it.

Good job guys!

 Just to keep things in the good news spirit and all round Camaro/Chevy nice guys. This week I was also in contact with a former owner(2 of them ago) who built my current ride a 67 rs. I already had his contact info that was passed along by the previous owner. After a pleasant phone conversation I told him that I was going to be in his area on Sat. and would he mind if I dropped in. He said not a problem. We arrive and he has ready for me some touch up paint, the 67 AIM some after market rs floor mats. We yapped about my car and his current projects a 57 belair, 69&66 corvette. He then invited my wife and I inside to watch a slideshow of my car when he first bought it (it looked a lot different) then offered me the original short block for my car at a very reasonable price. I was blown away by the generosity of this gentleman. Mr. Ron Dodds of Arva  Ontario. Thanks Ron for the pics !!!

I still haven't figured that deal out - evidently never will.

  Along with Ron having the original 327 block (I have the heads on the 350 in it now) I found out It has a GM cowl hood (yeah I checked out how to tell the diff) A PY 12 bolt out of a 68 Camaro original 256 gear now a 355 gear. Something I already knew but Ron confirmed that the fold down rear seat is not original
