I let Steve drive my 67 last Saturday and caught him admiring the vent windows! :D

It looks like a well optioned 67.

The trim tag indicates it started as a Tahoe turquoise rally sport with a deluxe turquoise interior, deluxe seat belts, fold down rear seat, powerglide with console, rear seat speaker, and Z23 interior trim.

My 67 is also an 11E LOS car. There were only 3 working days the fifth week of November 1966. The bodies on our 67’s were built during those three days. They could have been built on the same day!

Nah!!!! Steve's gonna lay the parts out in his barn, pick the barn up with the forklift, and shake it. Then he's gonna spend the rest of his life trying to figure out which parts go with which car!

Wow!

What exactly is the record for going from 0 Camaros to 4? (I'd better hit the post button fast, before he buys another one)

Score a droptop 68 big block car, and you'll be pretty well set.

He really did! Funny thing was, since I quit amoking 25 years ago, I couldn't figure out what purpose they serve :) Guess that comes in time

Steve, looks like a super clean start. What color you going to paint it?
That's what I was thinking about on the way home from work. I stopped and talked to a guy I met last year who owns a performance shop. I saw him painting his SS vert last year (today he was prepping a 69, + a 70 Chevelle SS). He doesn't do painting / body work, except on his and his friends' cars. I was trying to see if he could recommend anyone locally, but he said he doesn't really know of any quality shops inthe area. last year I "Interviewed" about 6 places here, and so far I haven't found anyone that I would take it to. I will be on the prowl soon.

Nice Steve!
Now you just need to start working on them! Sell em and buy a driver?
Car #1 - The 69 SS - Don't think I will ever sell that one. Kind of attached
Car $2 - The 69 "Driver" - Might sell that one, might not
Car #3 - The PJ 307 - I bought that one for a purpose. when it serves it's purpose I will either put it together, or sell it as is... time will tell.
Car #4 - The 67 RS - This car is incredibly solid. I will definately paint it and have some fun with it. Unbelieveably, the wife likes it. Will have to see, but I will probably own it for at least a few years.

Nah!!!! Steve's gonna lay the parts out in his barn, pick the barn up with the forklift, and shake it. Then he's gonna spend the rest of his life trying to figure out which parts go with which car!
THAT was funny :)

# 5 may be just around the corner.. .will keep you posted :) 1971 BB - All original --- best news, it's in a barn and has been for many years. ROAD TRIP

Would they have also put 11E on the cars built on the 1st and 2nd of dec.
Then start 12 A on the first full week. I'm not shure how they did the split weeks the is the first time I saw any mention of something like this.

Sorry ... my bad... it's 123xxx --- 6 digits. Turns out my car was born on December 7, 1966... Pearl Harbor Day. so, does this mean its a "bomber" lol. It's 40 cars away from Farmboy's. His decipher is that this car was in the plant at the same time his was. He's might be coming over Saturday. If he brings his car, we'll just lock them up in the quiet of the shop together so they can catch up on the good ole days :)

Congratulations........:hurray:

Steve, that is just too cool that your's and Farmboys were so close together !!!!

Please consider repainting it the original color...it isn't seen often and in my humble opinion is gorgeous, especially with the Turquise custom seats...:thumbsup:

Here's a link to one with Parchment interior, which is gorgeous too..http://www.dealsonwheels.com/search/detail.aspx?id=80439

Nice the wife likes it too...makes it easier to live with them both......:D I'd mention her good taste in liking the vent windows best, but that would just start another "window war".....:yes:

At this point in your "collecting" stage, you might consider taking a body and paint course at your local Vo-Tech. Set up a booth in your shop and start doing your own paint.....practice on the 69's and then do the 67....;) . I'm considering doing that myself for my next "project". I can't do bodywork to save my soul now, but would love to be able to. I've done some painting in the past and actually did pretty good with it.

I sure wish I lived down there and could find cars like that !!!

man that looks nice. Looks like all the body work is done!
Not quite all, but it's real, real close to being done

Might that be just a bit too much blue?

Nice the wife likes it too...makes it easier to live with them both......
I take offense to that... what are you trying to say? I post a simple thread, and you take it to the gutter. How DARE you insinuate that Camaro's are hard to live with!!! (gotcha :) )

Already looked into it... the off campus of the local JC is about 1 mile from my house, and they have auto shop / body & paint, etc. Will look into that in the fall.

practice on the 69's and then do the 67....;) .
Funny... that's EXACTLY what I was thinking... however, you must have mis-typed... I'm sure you meant practice on the 67', then do the 69's
I sure wish I lived down there and could find cars like that !!! [/quote]

My head would pop off if i had that many...
To me it's quite simple... find a running, driving car and see how long it takes you before you break it.... then just go find another one :) - Seriously, for me it's the "thrill of the kill". The part I like best about this hobby (so far) is the Hunting / Gathering aspect. As time goes on and I gain more knowledge and confidence I may actually start working on one of them. Until then, "Let the Games Begin".
