Thanks for the kind words. I knew Gary would have a comment regarding the interior. Yes this car is the one I have the most fun with. I recently sheared the 12 ring gear bolts off (original owner changed to 411's) and for the first time the car let me down. I rebuilt the rear and installed 373's, and as I get older it takes a lot more effort. 

I have another orange car and it's not a Chevrolet but its identical in color. BTW Mike its a Brooklyn NY car and originally owned by a famous racer/tuner.

I agree nice write up. Persistence pays off. I am guessing the 3 black cars don't see much road time, so i am glad you are able to get your "Camaro fix " with your original obsession. I see the torq thrusts and the ladder bars and headers, what other mods do you run on the car?
Any other things you still want to do to the car?

(oh yah, whats with all the pictures in the woods from back in the day? They didn't have paved roads back then?) ;D

I also drive my 69 L35 pace car and the black rs/z.  I finished the black Z in 2004 and took it to the Camaro Nationals. It needs a hair cut and a shave so I've pulled the exhaust manifold and smog and some suspension components to refinish.

The orange Z engine is running perfect now. I had some carburetor issues with hesitation which turned out to be a power valve. There is an engine vibration which I never had prior to engine rebuild and suspect it's the clutch/ flywheel. This is the second clutch assembly (Luk). The first was Ram, but was defective and wouldn't release completely. I was told they omitted a pressure plate machining operation.  Both clutch flywheel assemblies were balanced prior to installation.

The front springs are kind of tired so I may replace those and replace bushing and such. The car has 99k miles from new.

The 373 gears make it more drive able for long distances.

New pics are up. :)

FathomRSZ28 - because the feature car this month was a 69, your car has been delayed a bit - but will be the 69 shown the next time we change pics, in early April.

Sounds great. Thanks for your work on this. Let me know if you need anything further from me

I wanted to thank Bryon for doing a superb job on the write-up of my car, and all his efforts maintaining the home page and moderating the site.

Not sure why or how I missed this but that 67 is a very cool ride..  Quick question are the previous Home page featured cars links still active or are they gone forever?

Contact me if you have a 68 L78/L89 Camaro to add it to my database.
