Hello, I just purchased an L30/M20 67 Camaro and was wondering what additional resources or information was available for these cars. Rich's article was great, and as I continue to decode the car it looks like matching numbers engine, trans, rear. The car is real rough and rusty but has all the parts and the original paint! I just need to find an intake and possibly heads...

Not sure what else you are looking for.  Not sure what else Rich could have put in his article.

Daniel's right, but have you looked at information sources:

I agree Rich's article is great, I just wanted to know if anyone had personal experience with these cars or currently owns one. Any ideas on how to tell what wheels came on the car?

Thanks - I have enjoyed reading all the posts for so long - now I finally have a camaro in the garage!

Yes, others have these cars.  Rich has a very nice restored 68 L30/M20 coupe.  Maybe some of the other will speed up and get in contact with you.

I've got one - a 68 convertible that my father ordered/purchased brand new.  I'm still working on the restoration, but here is a picture of it on the day it was delivered:

Second owner of one, Brother in law bought it new in April 1967. Mine had full wheel covers on standard steel wheels painted black.

 ...I owned an unrestored L30/M20 RS briefly, ...but have since sold it (CRG has all the info on it).
   Here's a link to some photos I took of the car  http://rides.webshots.com/album/254439242GomVOm

  Interestingly enough, ...the guy who purchased it from me (from Missouri) had it up on Ebay (advertised as an RS/SS): http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=002&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=120067117799&rd=1,1
   ...it went over what I sold it to him for, but didn't meet his reserve.
 
   ...What I couldn't quite figure is WHY he painted the trim tag??
 
    Here's a pic when I had the car (nothing touched):


 ...and this is from the Ebay auction for the same car:

 
  ...I will refrain from jumping to conclusions, ...but it does make one wonder...Huh

Thanks for the info, I do wonder why the tag was painted? I will get some pictures of mine up soon but they will not be pretty!

I picked my "68" up about 7 years ago. First 4 years was used as a driver/showcar, the last 3 years I've been doing a total restoration on it. I never heard of an "L30/M20" until I read Rich's excellent article about 3 years ago. My car came with power disc brakes and luckily it still has all 5 original disc brake rally wheels, RonM.

Same here.  At the time, I was putting a lot of time & effort (and a little $) into my restoration.  Several people commented to me that it was just a "Regular" Camaro, so why bother trying to keep it original.  Rich's article was just what I needed. Smiley
