New Guy

Hi Folks,

Just looking for a good first gen camaro forum thought I would try this one. I have 2 1969s - a hard top I bought in 79 used to drag race in the early 80s and a Pace Car I bought in 1984. The Z11 is about to get a frame off resto done - building a motor for it now. I hate to let these two toys sit so much so decided it was time to get one freshened up so I can drive it with pride. Both were quite nice at one time but both need work now. The new motor's a 400 sbc with 1969 z28 intake, Dart Heads, Scat forged crank set, Hydraulic Roller Cam, and 10:1 compression. I think the only thing I'm missing on the resto is the front cocktail shakers - anyone make repros of these?

Re: New Guy

Welcome aboard

In regards to the front cocktail shakers, I do not believe repros are being made. You either have to check ebay from time to time or I found these links.

Re: New Guy

Welcome ot the TC Crew, Steve.

I've got a line on some shakers...they have gone up in price, eh? Rears for sure... not certain about the fronts.. they seem more difficult to get... frontal collisions, I guess?

Give me a PM.
