Ah, I thought you were referring to the CAMARO NATIONALS.

He (Bob) may not be aware that the Camaro Nationals, that was held at Carlisle in conjunction wthi the GM Nationals up until a couple years ago, is NOW held at Frederick, MD on the same weekend; last time I went to the joint show, there were a ton more Camaros than all others combined (at least that's the way it seemed)...  I would think there would be a lot more Camaros at Frederick than at Carlisle given the situation!

Gary,

You're right! I was unaware that the Camaro Nationals had seperated from Carlisle.  That explains why the past couple of years I've noticed a dramatic decline in the number of Camaro's at Carlisle. I was going to take Friday off to go to Carlisle but now I may have rethink my plans.

Thanks for the info!

No Problem Bob..   I'm leaving Thursday morning before dawn to drive the 700 miles to Frederick; saves me about 100 miles(est) rather than Carlisle .. Smiley
PS.  I did enjoy seeing some of the other cars, but the main reason I went to the GM Nats before was the Camaros..

Thought I would provide a quick follow-up posting to this thread with the hopes it may benefit someone else who went down the same path I did.

I ordered the superseded shock nut (p/n 3866766) mentioned earlier in the thread from the local Chevy dealer. The nut in the attached image is what I received today. It's pretty darn close to the nuts from some of the images posted from others. The thickness measures .371". It's difficult to tell but it does not appear to be zinc plated.

This is what I'm going to use which brings me a whole lot closer to what was originally used versus the nuts I picked up earlier.
