Not taking anything of mine but may help a friend who is taking over more than one car. Give me some info on your Z Eddie and I will look you up for a hello...... Can PM if you like! Forcast can change but it seems it will be cooler by end of the week (mid 80's I believe).

Just back in from unloading the trailer from the Super Chevy Show this past w/e, at the Maple Grove Raceway Park...What a nice facility, very clean and well maintained...

I did not ask, but based on a quick row count there must have been more than 450 plus cars and trucks there each day with Sunday being an even bigger turn out of cars and trucks...

According to one of registration guys on Saturday.  They sold out of registrations cards for the first gen. cars on Sat...So I'm thinking more than 30 first generation car there for the show on Saturday...There were at lest 10 cars in the GM Boulevard event...These were cars that received the tracks top picks..

There were some very nice camaro's there both days..A couple that I looked at a spoke to the owners were original Z-28.  I only wish I had taken some pictures this time..

I met 68camaroz68 "Chick" from this site.  What a nice guy.  We talked cars for quite some time..


One question that I was asked, that I never thought to ask anyone...What was the factory list/sale price for an original cross ram, carbs and linkage set up from the factory...I was guessing somewhere in the $750.00 to $1,000.00 price range.  How far off am I ?

Eddie is correct in that there were some very nice machines there representing many different GM makes and flavors.  Eddie's car is, well just awesome looking and the color combo stops you right away. Great car Eddie and thanks for the compliment but the pleasure extends both ways as we both enjoyed each others company. And don't you be bashful ;D Eddie's car won another Gold Class Award and Best Interior, Best Motor, and Best Paint.. Congratulations Eddie!!!!!!

The complete over-the-counter kit in a box was $375.00 in October, 1968.

Wow !!!! Its hard to believe it was that cheap for a complete setup...I remember buying a set of Holley 660 (I think) double pumpers for my tunnel ram back then.  I recall them begin somewhere in the $100.00 to $125.00 price range, but I could be wrong.


Chick, AKA 68camaroZ28 and I were talking and this guy came up and asked...What will a car like yours sell for..$39K ? We kind of chuckled to ourselves and said not quite.  Then we got the fully story about cars like ours ( camaro's) that could be bought for less than $39K...

Then the person asked about the crossram intake setup, and when he was told what a set up would cost, you guessed it, we were wrong again.  Its kind of funny when you know what something cost, and the uninformed always  seem to know more than you do and they don't even own a car or setup for a basis of comparison..God has to love those folks !!!!

Thanks for the information.  Now, I'll be able to answer this question should it come up again.  I don't think is will be this guy though since he sold his 1979 Vega on Sunday !!! LOL,LOL

Yea Eddie, that guy was quite a hoot!!!!!! It was nice that none of us jumped on him like he jumped on Lonny when he mentioned what REAL unit can sell for.  By the way, since I'm such a fair guy I will give ya not 39 but $40K for the car ;D  I know, plus what??????

John, man would I like to buy some of them set ups now for that price......
