Other than badging, cowl induction hood and racing stripes, is there anything else necessary to clone a Z-28?

And you call yourself the Camaro Guy!
What about a 4 speed, a 302, a 12 bolt, multi leafs, power front disks, and more!

Cowl hood doesnt have anything to do with the Z28, it was just a Camaro option.

If you were to clone this for yourself you be doing research instead of asking for answers.
try http://www.camaros.org http://www.camaro-untoldsecrets.com
to learn about aerodynamics option on Zs and the X-Ram
Maybe a 12 bolt, not positive
Tachs for sure
and 4sp,

I'm pretty sure I have a Camaro spotter's guide on the bookshelf. What year are you looking to clone?

Z/28 Clones are what they are. So long as the owner admits that it's a clone, no harm no foul. However, for those of us who actually own the real thing, it's frustrating to hear the same statement all of the time; "That's not a real Z/28, is it?"

Yes, it is a 1969, and yes, I will call it a clone. But for your info, i am only 15 and this is a project between me and my dad, so we can't exactly buy a real matching #'s Z-28
for my first car. Besides, I doubt that I will get any less respect at my high school with a clone

Hey guys, cut the kid some slack!!! I personally am glad to know that there are still some youngsters interested in muscle cars. Hopefully they will never die!!! He could be asking questions about putting 13 x 18 gangster wheels on an '88 Escort!!!

Amen to that!! My dad was nice enough to hand me down the family 73 Rustang that never ran. I bought a 75 Malibu with a 350, bucket swivel seats and a console. 295/50r15s in the back and 195/75s in the front. I had a spoiler on the back and a front airdam Keystone classics with bfgs all round. It was fast and the chicks loved it. That car got me lots of....well never mind

me too,

Power to the Musclecar revolution.

My first car was a 67 Mustank , although I later turned to the dark side of chevy (more reliable and less oil drips) it was a great project, and also a good time with my father, I believe it was one of the best times in my young life, restoring a muscle car with my dad, I will always remember that time for the rest of my life...

Yea,I know what you mean sixtysevenrs/ss,my car got me a lot of pinkslips too !
Steve,do what you want with your car,as long as your not going to try to pass it off as something it's not,who cares,it's your $$.More power to your dad also.I wish I had a dad who would have spent this kind of time with me!(boo hoo...right?)I just hope my son has an interest in muscle cars like I do.Based on his love of speed and cars,I'll say he has a good headstart.

Drake-drag your kid out there when hes young and soon he'll catch on muscle cars

My dad always got help from my brother and I cuz it was on his camaros-and the reward was a ride

Now he sold them all for the family, finally got back in the business when my brother and I turned 15 since then (were 16 1/2 now) we owned 3 chevelles, 2 trucks, and 1 camaro.
We got him back into it, like he sold them for us-we remembered that so we promised ourselves to get a muscle car no matter what
