The Z409 Camaro: Going A Bit Retro With A Classic Musclecar

Too Many Projects The multi leaf springs were on 250 hp 327 and all the big block cars too. Nothing special about it being a Z because it had multi leafs...
The 6 cylinders and some 2 barrel 327/pg cars still used the single leaf.

Since prolly nobody converts back from multi leaf springs to mono leaf springs, if a 'Z28' has mono leafs, it's prolly a clone...

What about BBC Camaros? They prolly also had multi leafs, didn't they?

Still, a well done clone is very hard for even a knowledgeable person to pick out from just looking at the car from the outside.
All of the stripes and emblems and stuff can be faked. That's the point of the question, what can a person do when they are walking up to a "Z" at a show to at least start with to know if it's a real Z or not? Now it's not that hard to change this too but DAMN I have seen a number of "Z's" where they didn't change this and it was pretty lame. You can see it from a distance but if you get to close to the car you can't without bending over.

LOL !!! ... In the 1950's Chevy was convincing people they needed 14" wheels in place of their earlier 15" wheels to get the cars lower to the ground... then in the 1960's they were convincing people to pay extra to get 15" wheels again !!! Now they're getting people to pay big for 19" wheels and tires the thickness of rubber bands...

You know what, I didn't think of that. What happens if it has mags?

I was thinking of something else.
