MCACN
« on: October 30, 2016, 10:37:00 PM »
Just wondering how many members are attending MCACN in Rosemont (Chicago area) which is now less than 3 weeks away. As some of you know from my build thread on Team Camaro we are taking our recently completed 68Z there. I've been addressing a few items that were rushed to complete in June and believe she is ready to go. Some of those recent updates I need to place in the build thread to keep that up to date but what's important here is, Who's Going? Anyone else taking a car?

Of course you already know I'm going, although I'm not taking my car this year. I'm looking forward to seeing you there Chick, and that beautiful car of yours too!

I wish I were going..  Im hoping for 2018 to have the green car there.  For the 50th anniversary of 1968.  I have no idea if that is or will be a theme; just something I thought about.  Good luck, have fun  and of course take a shit ton of pics for those of us unable to attend!!!!
If you have solid lifter 1967 - 1969 Camaro please contact me as I would like to add your car's info to my database

Chick, I will be the one with the vintage CHEVY jacket the security Gard will be pulling  me away from your Butternut beauty drooling all the Way.

I sure hope to visit with you a bit.

Good one Jim and look forward to meeting you and all Camaro Friends. Just to know one of my long lost relatives from Rwanda will be joining me and he stays close to the car but does not like company much. LOL

Have a great show Chick - MCACN is on my list of must-see events, hope to get over there within the next couple of years. Would love to meet you and your amazing car, and of course as many fellow CRG-ers as possible.

Sherri & I will be there.  Not taking a car.   Taking some parts for a Canadian friend, and picking up a vintage fiberglass hood.

Jon:   very disappointed I don't get to see your 67 Z.   Chick's 68 will at least partially make up for it.   Not slamming your fabulous car Chick, just something about the 67 Z, especially the first one built!

I'd like to bring it but it's an expensive trip and I can't swing it this year.  At least I'm able to bring myself! :)

Chick the pics of your car look great. I can imagine it sitting on the show room floor.
Question did you replace the leaf springs in the back ( and they haven't broken in) or is it sitting slightly higher because other 68's have original leafs that have sagged a bit over the years?

Chick,   

  You had better watch closely that your Rwanda friend doesn't take notice of the car's yellow and think it's a huge banana and try to peel it back, starting with the hood  ;)

Looking forward to the event. Another year and yet more unbelievable cars displays.  I know where I'll find, Chick, Grady, Phil, Skip, Jon ,Robert & Mike. Vintage Certification also has another fantastic group of Survivor cars. Look forward to seeing everyone and all the cars...

Yes, they are new leaf springs as my originals had one main leaf cracked and too difficult to make new looking and I tried. Anyone obtaining new leaf springs better be prepared as the car sits very high when first installed. Ours have come down over 5 inches. I placed two 5 gallon buckets of damp sand in the trunk for several months and another in the rear seat area. I'm sure it will come down some more over time but think its within tolerances (range) of height. Do agree or surely assume survivor cars sit lower due to spring fatigue of almost 50 years. I will add this, the like original leaf springs available look great and met all of my expectations.

Oh yea Steve, I would not miss those great original cars that come to be examined/judged. And what an opportunity to check them out when on the lift. Look forward to seeing you, Chris and the team also. Great team!

Mike, good one on the banana but not part of their diet luckily....
