Hey Everyone,
Just stumbled upon this site day before yesterday and thought I would say hi.

Been reading over the forum, and I have to say a few nice cars seem to be in the build.
But you all need more Fords in the mix

Currently I don't have a muscle car, but intend to buy one soon, I know everyone is expecting it, but I've been eyeing a particular mustang for a while now and it has finally come up for sale.
If and when I get it I'll make sure I post some pictures.

In the meantime I'll try enjoy the chevs on this site .

Alan.

I just stumbled across you guys last night and wanted to say hi.
Been playing around with American cars now for 25 years (mainly 60s GM)
I look forward to helping out any way I can.
And as a member of a couple of US sites, it will be nice talking to Aussies for a change.
It's also great to see an Australian site not dedicated to one brand or body.
I couldn't find where to put my name ?
Cheers guys
Dave

Don't know how accurate it all is, but here's what I get from that info.

Your Serial Number 15b569520
(info taken from: http://www.chevy-camaro.com/chevy-ca...-code-help.asp )

1 =Chevy
5 = 1975
b = Vehicle assembly plant Baltimore, Maryland
569520 = ast six digits of VIN



Casting Number 3970010 could be 3 options:
According to this page: http://www.chevy-camaro.com/chevy-ca...es.asp?group=1



-YEAR----CID----HP---MAIN--COMMENT
-1969----350--255/350--4--Truck/Passenger/Chevelle/Chevy II/Corvette/Camaro

-YEAR----CID---HP---MAIN--COMMENT
-1969----302---290----4----Z-28 Camaro

-YEAR-----CID-----HP----MAIN--COMMENT
-1970/80--350--145/350--2/4---Truck/Passenger/Chevelle/Chevy II/Corvette/Camaro



Suffix Code KO5 29 CMJ
From: http://www.chevy-camaro.com/faq/chev...-decoding.shtm


K= Engine Assembly Plant McKinnon Engine Plant
05 = Assembly Month MAY
29 Assembly Day 29th
C = Motor Division Chevrolet Passenger car
MJ = only on 350 BLOCK

*CMJ
--YR--CID---HP--BBL-APPL
1975--350--145--4---THM 350/400, federal
1974--350--160--4---t400 police




So with all this info you'd assume it is an original 350 4 bolt Block, built in 75 from an ex-Federal Car. But that just my conclusion

Top site guys, thank god there is somewhere to go to get US muscle info. I'm looking forward to getting a 68 camaro project and doing conversion myself. I know a lot of people tell me to keep it LHD but I want it right hook. I'm wondering what s/box they use (i've been told both early holden and ford) and can of any standard parts be used in the conversion?

Welcome

For my conversion they used a Ford steering box (XY).. I know there are kits available using GM box's from aussie cars.. but i wouldn't have a clue...

Planning on doing the conversion yourself? or do you have someone in mind to do it for you?

hi all,

new to the thread, and new to muscle cars. ill be honest i know squat about cars, but would love to get my hands some muscle at some stage in the not to distant future.

while im here i might as well ask, are there any cars that are reliable, not too expensive and can be driven as an everyday car.

all the best

Welcome aboard

Reliability (for an every day car) depends on how you build and drive it.. same goes for expense.. depends on what you want..

If you don't go to far out there with your build it should be fine (apart from petrol costs )..

Do you have a car in mind?

Hi all,
Finally an Aussie forum for our cars! Stumbled across this forum while looking at youtube. (following link after link after link)

Once I get use to this forum, I'll post a pic of my 69RS and I'll be happy to chat about it and I also need help with a few details.

Regards
Mike

Hello everybody from the USA!

I found this site while looking up some date codes on some parts I have.
Really great site, you guys have an awesome attitude about the cars!

I have a couple of '64 Chevys; an Impala, and a Bel-Air wagon that
I customized into a 2-door. Its not done yet, oh well.

My father always had Mopar, still does. In fact tomorrow we are picking
up a 1987 Fifth Avenue (he has 4 others already), he and mom use them
for daily drivers. When I was young, he had a '52 New Yorker with the
hemi in it, but sold it when they moved 6 years ago. I have a '73 Dodge
3/4 ton Club cab pickup that I use for hauling home new projects, but
I have a 292 Chevy 6 w/ 3 speed overdrive in it.

My father and I are fixing up a 1947 Kenworth conventional. We
stretched the frame (252" wheel base), and added a newer (1978) Peterbilt
Air-ride suspension. It will have a 48" walk-in sleeper when its done.
It has a 200 Cummins, 5 speed main, 3 speed auxillary transmission. We
hope to upgrade that to a 4 speed.

If there is anything I can do on this side of the world to help find parts or
even help with shipping, let me know. I will be glad to help anyway that
I can.


Awesome site!
Brian

Hi Brian

Welcome to the forums, should post some pics of Chevys and the Kenworth would all like to see.
Sure anyone here would like to have half as much as history with US cars as you have.
