I'm not sure what it takes to "rebuild this thread", but please do! I miss the pictures!
Here is a funny little story about Super Stockers. Many of you know I own Bill Izykowski's '69 Camaro "Super Paranoia" that ran in SS/H as a brand new car. Bill's previous cars, (which won class at the Winternationals as well as many others) were 427 powered. I asked him why he didn't buy a COPO so he could run another 427 powered machine. His answer was quick, frank and totally without thought...."To stay away from Jenkins!"
Now these guys were all friends and in fact Bill studied Jenkins' '69 Camaro while race-prepping his (mine).

From the TV show Emergency.Notice the gigantic dent near the front emblem and the hockey stick stripe extends all the way down into the front valance extension panel.

That's the 1st design D90 stripe. Done that way through the end of October, 1968; possibly a bit longer.

The famous L89/auto PHR road test car L507834 [final-assembled on or about Nov 11] had the 2nd design; terminated at the fender extension. The AIM is vague on where the stripe terminates [no dimension] but the drawing depicts the 1st design.

You've reminded me there used to be a hill climb in Empire, Michigan (which after a long hiatus is once again gaining traction).

Our friend Fred Meissinger used to run an early Z with a crossram. Fred was a GM executive and was plant manager of the Adrian Manufacturing plant when he retired. Fred passed away about 10 years ago.

Fred Meissinger and car, at Empire, Michigan:






(Me - about to put a super tune on Fred's car; Dad is coming over the fence to prevent me from putting a super tune on Fred's car):



Fred's friend Denny Hall was always right behind him:



Denny was director of GM's Advanced Manufacturing Engineering when he retired. He is still living up by Houghton Lake last I knew.

I took these with one of those old Brownie box cameras.
