I'm 12 years old and i am tryin to learn about 1967-1969 camaros. My dad has a 1969 z-28 and a 69 and 68 regular camaro. Any advice?
read every magazine you can get and subscribe to more
Try your friend google. Well look what we have on the first page of google search right here (http://www.musclecarclub.com/musclecars/chevrolet-camaro/chevrolet-camaro- history-1.shtml) . What a surprise!
Man that is my absolute dream car. A 1969 Z-28 Camaro.
mine too. i wish my dad had 3 69 camaros i'd make him give me one. heheh
i'd make my dad tell me where he got 3 camaro's from
then i'd make my dad give me one
I have a magazine from 1967 that goes over the development of the first year of Camaro, with photos of the first rough test units cobbled together from other Chevy models. It's pretty interesting, though that may not be what you are looking for. After I look into copyright issues with the original publisher, if all goes well I plan to post it on my site. Keep an eye out for it in a couple of months.
WHAT EVER YOU DO, DON'T CROSS OVER TO THE STUPID WORLD OF IMPORTS, WITH THERE STUPID ASS FART CAN MUFFLERS, STAY AWAY FROM THE RICE ROCKETS, and a camaro is the best choice in a car!!!!!! 67-69 best years!!!
Yeah, because real people are too stupid to be able to like more than one
kind of car.
Whatever you do, don't make it a goal to be as closed minded and immature as xCaMaRox67. Like the Camaros, but don't obsess over one make or model.
'69 RS/Z28 clone convertible with an LS2 and a 6spd for me (don't want to
hack up an original). Hellz yeah, classic look and growl with modern
performance, mileage, and reliability... :thumbs: .
People can make any car look/sound retarded. Don't rag on imports out of ignorance.
For original poster, try to get a subscription to "Classic Chevy", or "Camaro". Also check out Google and any classic discussion board you can find (there's bound to be a ton for the 67-69 Camaro's). Do a lot of reading and researching. Good to see some other people getting an early start :clap: .
If you want to obsess over one make and/or model go ahead.... It does not make much of a difference to anyone.
Here is the best source of information I've found:
Team Camaro (http://www.camaros.net/forums/)
It does if you go online and fill up threads in forums with worthless
garbage likexCaMaRox67 does...
But sure, let's encourage people to be closed minded. :thumbs:
Those are some nice cars. My cuz just turned 16, and his dad bought him a 68 camaro SS 502, holy 750 double pumper, high rise manafold, and alota stuff. Its red with black stripes, and the stripes have ghost flames in them. they spend 17 grand on this car, and he has the nicest camaro ive ever seen. Make yer dad give you one of those, and you'll prob have the nicest car in you school.
As a Dad, I have a suggestion;
- My son always has a better shot at getting something by asking nicely and perhaps even contributing to the proposed purchase. I don't thing the "make yer dad give you one..." thing would work that well for him! :wink2:
hell, worked for me! my dad just gave me a 1986 camaro z-28 with a 350 overbored. hooker exhaust (that means headers and mufflers) edelbrock manifold and valve covers (i know valve covers dont do anything) and it cammed pretty heavy plus a holly 650 cfm 4 barrel carb..... i dont know why he did this but i love him.
i was looking at one for £2000 british pounds (with me living in england and all..) however the cheapest insurence quote i got was £4500!!!(im 17) its illegal 2 not hav insurence over hear... its a b!tch. any ideas for other muscle cars that wouldnt be 2 expencive in that department?
My dad's first car was a 69 z-28, maroon with white stripes. He spanked a
lot of cudas and mustangs with it. He had the engine rebuilt and it had
well over 500 horses. The guy that rebuilt it raced pro-stock or somethin
with carl lingenfelter. Unfortunatly my dad sold it in '73 when he joined
the marines and bought a marantz stereo and a leather jacket lol. That poor
Z is probably in a junk yard somewhere.... :ohcrap: :ohcrap: . Shame...
I hate to say it about such a beautiful car but, ewww whats with the wheels? Totally doesnt suit the car. IMO, a nice set of Cragars look great on Camaro's.
Notice the plates? That car is in Europe, and those wheels are European
Personally I think they look better on there than Cragars (I don't like the old Cragar SS 2 piece wheels). But they don't look as good as, say, polished Torq Thrust wheels would on that car.
This would be my favorite way to set up a '69 Camaro:
Fikse FM5s on road racing suspension... mmmm
Oversized Torq Thrusts on an DZ302 powered Z/28.. Yummy.
I like the look of the second one (the oversized torque thrusts). I think torque thrusts and cragars look nice on pretty much any old(er) car. IMO the torque thrust wheels on that second Camaro are a little to big, i'd rather have a little but more rubber. Beautiful cars though.
