Re: November 2018 Ride of the Month

Hi All

This Month, My 1969 Camaro is 50 Years Old,

Built in the Norwood, OH Plant for an "Overseas Sale" to France in November of 1968.

It is a SSRS, Original 350 w/ TH350. Engine was bad, Took it out, put it on a Rotisserie and took care of what needed to be done With Allot of TC Help, Thank You !

We Built a 427 BB and installed a 700R4 Transmission.

Special Options are 0 - 200 KPH Speedometer, Power Windows, Tilt Steering Wheel, Rosewood Steering Wheel, Fold Down Rear Seat. I added a Classic Auto Air Conditioning System, and had EFI Installed.

My Son and I did all the work except the EFI, for our "High School Resto Mod"

Thanks' Timmy from CT

I recently finished my Bolero red 67 SS L78 Camaro. It took me about 1.5 years from start to finish.

I did nearly all the metal work, body, paint and finish myself. This was my first restoration and was a blast to work on.

I still am in contact with the original owner who raced the car in 67/68 against names like Grumpy Jenkins and the Moody brothers.

Just finished the buffing and will be taking the car to the Turkey Rod Run.

Re: November 2018 Ride of the Month

My 1968 SS also just recently turned 50 years old. Been doing a lot of updates and upgrades in the past year or so. This car is nearly twice as old as me so itís been fun learning how everything works. Highlights of the car include a supercharged, aluminum headed 383 stroker making 560 hp that just fits under the small hood cowl, built 700R4 transmission, 12 bolt rear end with posi, Auto Meter gauges, updated front seats, cold A/C, and a new sound system including a radio with some DSP ability, front and rear speakers, 2 amps, and a sub hidden by the custom trunk trim. Itís a great weekend cruiser or stress relief after a long day at work. At some point next season Iíll definitely be finding out what it can do on the track as well!

Re: November 2018 Ride of the Month

Throw my ol' school meets new school 69 SSRS into the mix.

Lt1 ramped up a bit with components from Lunati, Comp, Holley. From there power is transferred to a rebuilt M20- 11" clutch housed in a Lakewood scattershield..... ending to a final drive of 3:55.
A few years ago I decided to enhance my driving experience by adding some bolt on's, Hotchkis front & rear springs, as well as F & R sway bars, Delphi 600 14:1 steering gear, C51 front brakes ( LS1 rears next year). Creature comforts include BMW front seats, Morris 3 pt. seat belts, leather wrapped steering wheel along with SW mech. gauges.
18" BFG g-Force Sport comp 2's help transfer power to the pavement.
In 2012 I got the car painted to its original Cortez Silver, all original sheet metal with the exception of a GM ZL2 hood.
