I'm looking to purchase one for '69 Camaro. They are available on eBay and elsewhere, but describe some of the pages as "blank" or "possible illegible", due to poor originals, or something like that. Is that something you just have to accept, or are there better sources?

Got mine from Classic Muscle. Part number   3940195  Had no problems and might have to buy another one before I get my car finished.  Roll Eyes     Grin

There is a current thread over at TC on this here was my reply...

If you do purchase a printed AIM at a swap meet thumb trough it as some of the versions out there are a hundred generations copied before your copy was made and some details are impossible to see.

The PDF versions of the 67, 68, 69 70, and 72 I have seen seem to have been scanned from very good low generation paper copies. I have both a paper and PDF 1969 AIM and find that the PDF pages are almost always better quality. But I need the paper in the Garage but sometimes I need to print off the pages from the PDF first LOL

I now prefer the pdf copy because I can print just the pages I need right now, and if it gets oiled, or otherwise damaged, I can just print another copy.

yeah if I didn't already have one or two printed versions of them kicking around I wouldn't buy one. Of the two copies I have - one is my buddy's who sold his Z years ago so I doubt he will ever need it again - but its printed on green paper and very hard to read.

 I just purchased one off of e-bay for my 68. It was much clearer and easier to read than the others I own (69,73,77) and the guy I got it from said it is copied from his original.
