Trivia Thread

Sorry guys I have been on a couple of other forums I am on and also trying to email some pictures of a S&W revolver I have advertised for sale on one of the forums.
I think I recognize thae old sedan, didn't they chop the top later in the week.
We, my entire family leave Sat. am for our yearly family , Wife of course, two Daughters their husbands and our five Grandchildren, vacation. When I first came out of the stroke fog I was told we always went on a family vacation where I pay for a four bedroom condo and cary everyone out to my favorite seafood restaurant. My Wife says the girls couldn't go to Gulf Shores if I didn't furnish the lodging and the big going out to eat meal. the trouble is when we first started we got by with a three bedroom condo at $1,200.00 for seven days and now $3,500.00 and the meal was $125.00 and is now around $300.00.
I will be online tommorrow afternoon and night.

Garrell

Well no ones biting so I'll give you the answer. The builder was indeed Jim Lytie. Lytie had a thing for building cars with Allison engines. including the car Brian found " Big Al" ( which is the very first all fiberglass drag race body and is now in Don Garlits's Florida Museum). Tex Collins , cwner of Cal Automotive, bought most of Lytie's car and either showed them or raced them back in the 60's. The name of the car? Take one Allison aircraft engine and stick inside a BMW Isetta and you've got the Alsetta!

Somebody else jump in here with a question.

There is a distinct difference between 67-68 Camaro bumper mounting. What years are the brackets for? And don't go google it or look at URL's, first think about what the "evolution" of the bumper mounting may have been.

1.

2.

I learned this years ago when I had a Camaro and found that it had been hit and had the wrong bumper (well that I am not sure, the bumper may be the same) and brackets on it. Never knew looking at it, it was all in the mounting.

I have no idea what you just said.

What I am asking is what year is photo number 1 from and what year is photo number 2 from?

And really you if you know the answer you should be able to tell me why they are different.

1967.


1968.


This bracket goes over on the fender to hold the end of the bumper. They are different on these two cars, why?

Prolly has something to do w/front end impact resistance. No idea of any specifics, though.

Was there a shearing, cracking, or vibration problem involved with either of the two cars because of the bumper?

I don't know if there was a problem with it but it seems like that would have been the problem.

Do both the brackets mount to the body with the two small holes?

Yep, they mount between the fender and the little extension under it.

The last time I saw a bracket with a big mounting hole like the top bracket has was on a Audi compressor bracket. It used a rubber insert that the mounting bolt went through for vibration purposes but I don't ever remember see a bumper mounted th at way. If that is what that big hole is for., then the top bracket would be for the newer car because the rubber insert would be used to correct a problem There is only three holes in that bracket and the two smaller ones are on a curved section that would fit against the body so the big one would have to be a bolt hole also and that hole looks bigger than a 1/2 " bumper bolt.
