My 967 Camaro RS/ SS 350 started out new in Wichita Kansas and via two owners made it to Lompoc, Calif ornia in the late 1980 9s. I saw the car advertised in the local pa- per f or $700, and decided to go see it. I t was in rough shape, although eve- rything was there and it had not been wrecked.
I struck a deal and drove it home. De- spite the noises the tired 350 engine made, and the f aded yellow primer paint, ... more. less.
I drove that car f or nearly 3 years bef ore I realized that this car would be a keeper.

August is a busy month for the Puget Sound Region.<br><br> It began with the cWood Tour d - a tour for early Chevrolets to 1936. Eleven Puget Sound Region Members were there. The event was hosted by the Johnson 9s in Poulsbo.<br><br> The next week Garage Nite was hosted by Bill Barker who opened his garage for the group and gave away some goodies. Seventeen Puget Sound Region members were in attendance that night. Not more that four days later Jerry Brownell and Al Howe led a tour to Mount Rainier and Sunrise.<br><br> Later in the month, on the 25th, we celebrate the Club 9s 40th Anniversary with a tour and meal at Fort Borst in Centralia. There are currently 62 people signed up for that fes- tive occasion. Finally, the next Monday we gather at the Triple X in Issaquah to have a ham- burgers and shakes, then share experiences of the summer.<br><br> Thanks to all the people who or- ganized these events and saw to it that we all had fun. Jim Farris TAPPET CLATTER 5 (Continued f rom page 1) I n the midst of restoring several other old Chevys I tore the Camaro apart and took it right down to the last nut and bolt. Much research was done deci- phering the cowl tag and VI N number f or the cor- rect color and options.<br><br> Af ter nearly 2 years of work the Camaro was f inally f inished. The car is really something special. I t was ordered as a SS 350 with the Rally Sport package added on.<br><br> That gave the car the deluxe interior and hide away headlights. Other f actory options include air conditioning, posi- traction rear axle, disc brakes, and the rally wheels. The f actory color was a good choice, Bolero red with the black bumblebee striping.<br><br> The rally sport inte- rior has upgraded seats and f ancier door panels and trim. Af ter nearly 20 years of f un owning and driving this car, I still get the same thrill and enjoyment out of it that I had the very f irst time I drove it. The way I see it, my 967 Camaro was well worth the time and invest- ment and will always be a keeper.<br><br> My 1967 I mpala Sedan By Daryl Davis My aunt, Louise Weatherwax Bigelow, got this 1967 Chevrolet I mpala 327 sedan with a 6-way elec- tric seat f rom her spouse, the Chevrolet dealer, in a divorce settlement. Why she did not get a muscle car is beyond me, as she was that sort of person. I n 1957 a new Corvette owner stomped into Bigelow Chevrolet, f uming that some blankety blank housewif e in a 1957 Chevrolet wagon just beat him in a drag and there must be something wrong with his Vette.<br><br> They didn't tell him who the housewif e was. Aunt Louise stopped driving the I mpala as she was having too many bumper car incidents with it in parking lots. I in- herited it.<br><br> Retro Rods in Everett made it lovely again, but minus that ref rigerator-white color. I t has always been under cover or garaged, and as of now it has around 29,000 miles. Impala-Camaro-Chevelle The Impala Caprice was reintroduced as the Chevrolet Caprice in 1966, taking the top position in the full-size Chevrolet lineup.<br><br> The Impala; however, remained Chevrolet's top-selling model until the late 1970 9s. The 1967 model was redesigned along the lines of the 1963 Buick Riviera. The Coke bottle shape was strengthened and the curves were biggest with the 1967-68 model.<br><br> The big news in 1967 was Chevrolet 9s new Camaro, a "pony car" made in North America by the Chevrolet Motor Division of General Motors. It was introduced on 26 September 1966 as a 1967 model and was designed as a competing model to the Ford Mustang. The car shared the platform and major components with the Pontiac Firebird, also introduced in 1967.<br><br> Four distinct generations of the car were produced before production ended in 2002. A new Camaro is expected to roll off assembly lines in 2009. The Camaro was initially advertised on Top 40 AM radio stations of the day in an at- tempt to woo the young adult market.<br><br> Although it was technically a compact car (by the standards of the time), Camaro may also be classified as an intermediate touring car, a sports car, or a muscle car. Though the car's name was contrived with no meaning, GM researchers reportedly found the word in a French dictionary as a slang term for "friend" or "companion." In some automotive periodicals before official release, it was code-named "Panther", however, the project designation for the Camaro was XP-836 and some early GM photos show the final Camaro body labeled "Chaparral". Automotive press asked Chevrolet product managers "What is a Camaro?", and they were told it was "a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs." The name conveniently fit Chevrolet's "C" naming structure that included Corvair, Chevelle, Chevy II, and Corvette.<br><br> (Continues next page) 6 TAPPET CLATTER Our 1967 Chevelle Malibu By Jake and Lila Jacobs Our 1967 Chevelle Malibu was purchased from a Mrs. Olsa Ostrem in February 1991. It originally came from University Chevrolet in Seattle.<br><br> It was serviced regularly at Salmon 9s Service Center on N.E. 65 th . Since Mrs.<br><br> Ostrem only drove it to the grocery store the mileage was just over 42,000 when we purchased it. The 1967 has been going to the VCCA ever since. Rabid City, SD was the 1 st time it had been driven long distance.<br><br> We had to replace the water pump on the way home in Chey- enne, WY in 1996. In 2001 we drove it to Spring- field, IL with no problems. In 2006 we drove it to Grand Junction, CO.<br><br> We did have a little problem on the way there, the fuel pump went out in Idaho, but considering it was the original fuel pump we feel that the part was well made. The Chevelle now has 65,000 miles on it and is still running strong. It still has the original paint and interior and looks good for its age.<br><br> 2007 Club Meetings & Auto Events Calendar TAPPET CLATTER 7 August 25 40th Anniversary Tour & Celebration Centralia August 27 XXX Drive-In - Issaquah September 23 Corn Maze Tour (T) September 24 Meeting Darby 9s October 22 Meeting Tillicum November (T) 3 Col.

(Continued from page 6) The Chevrolet Chevelle pronounced "shavell" was a mid-sized automobile from Chevrolet debuting in 1964.<br><br> It was produced from 1964 through 1977 and was one of General Motors' most successful cars. Chevelle models ranged from economical family cars to powerful coupes and convertibles. The Malibu was at first the top trim level of the Chevelle line, and it replaced the Chevelle name entirely after 1977.<br><br> The Chevelle chassis (based on the reengineered GM A platform) provided the platform for the Chevrolet Monte Carlo, a very successful model itself. The Chevelle was intended to compete with the similarly sized Ford Fairlane and to return to the Chevrolet lineup a model similar in size and concept to the popular 1955-57 models. Early design photos show what would eventually be the Chevelle wearing Nova nameplates, the name that was used for the top trim level in the smaller Chevy II series.<br><br> From 1964-69 the Chevelle was the basis for the similar Beaumont, a re-trimmed model sold only in Canada by Pontiac dealers. Four-door hard- tops were available from 1966 though 1972. In 1967 the Nova was still named Chevy II.<br><br> It was also the last year of the Corvair, Chevrolet 9s car introduced in late 1959 as a 860 model to compete with Chrysler 9s Valient and Ford 9s Falcon. It was an innovative vehicle with an air cooled rear mounted motor. It became a victim of the press and the undeserved title, cUnsafe at any speed. d Chevrolet introduced a newly designed pickup in 1967.<br><br> It came in the Fleetside or Stepside versions. That body style lasted through 1972.

Gail Darby wondered who Jim 9s other wife was when she read in the June Issue that Jim and someone named Gayle were cele- brating their anniversary. Sorry Gail, that was a an example of a senior moment by the editor.<br><br> Sis Barker received a speeding ticket from a patrolman on her birthday. She was going up hill. Dick Jones informed the editor that his motorcycle was a Gold Wing, not Gull Wing as improperly stated in the TC.<br><br> Sorry Dick. Dick and Fran Olson drove their 831 Coupe on the Wood Tour in Poulsbo earlier this month. While on tour the Chevrolet Emblem broke loose from its mounting on the stone guard.<br><br> They were for- tunate that when it fell it lodged itself on the guard about half way down the radiator. Evidently it had been there for some time be- cause Wally Martin saw it earlier in the day and assumed it was suppose to be there. Gail Darby returned recently from a visit with relatives in Iowa.<br><br> Bill Barker gave a ride to a woman on his running board while go- ing up Toe Jam Hill on Bainbridge Island.

The world was unsettled. It was the year of the six day war between the Arabs States and Israel and the United States was deep into the Vietnam conflict.<br><br> Lyndon Johnson was the President of the United States. A sewing machine cost $149 and an 8-track Tape Player $67. A gallon of gas was 33 cents.<br><br> The average income hit $7,305 with minimum wage at $1.40. A new home cost $14,425, new car $2,724 and first class postage was 5 cents. The Concorde was new and the first microwave ovens were sold.<br><br> Computers were first used to generate electronic music, Rolling Stone magazine is founded and the first human heart is trans- planted. Mickey Mantle hits his 500th home run and Peggy Fleming wins the World Figure Skat- ing championship. 1967 was the year of the first Super Bowl and&..<br><br> It was also the year the Puget Sound Region began its journey. How about some of our members? What were they doing that year?<br><br> Roger Orness drove his freshly painted 1933 Eagle Coupe to the first meeting of what is now the Puget Sound Region. Adrian Taylor was attending first grade at the Central School (elementary) in downtown Den- ver, CO. Jim Seiber graduated from Western Washington State College, drove a 1956 Buick, and got his first teaching job in Issaquah.<br><br> Sue Seiber was an honors student at Washington State University, majoring in education. Sallie & Don Comstock exchanged marriage vows in December of 1967. This was also the year Don completed the 1966 Corvette coupe that Sallie was pictured on the hood in a sexy pose on her 21st birthday.<br><br> Gary Barquist was enjoying his senior year and graduation in 1967. Wally and Judy Martin's oldest daughter Jennifer Lynn was born on October 3, 1967. Jim Farris 9 son Jim was born November 27, 1967, the first day he began his job in the School District Administration.<br><br> He joined four sisters. Donna Onat was a sophomore in college at Central Washington in Ellensburg and was thrilled to have her first airplane ride home to Eugene for Christmas. It was a DC 3 and she still remembers boarding at the tail & walking uphill in the aisle to find her seat!<br><br> cIn fact, somewhere in a box, I still have the ticket & boarding pass! It was so amazing, the view of the snow-covered Cascades from the air for the first time. I'll never forget. d Dick Jones graduated from Boise College in 1967.<br><br> First four year graduating class for the school. It is now known as Boise State University. Bill Johnson left Ottawa Kansas to go to Miami Florida and ended up in Seattle, never having seen Florida.<br><br> Jim Martoza drove a Schwinn Sting-Ray with a banana seat in 1967. However, his parents drove Chevrolets. An Azure Aqua '64 Impala 4-door hardtop was mom's and a '54 210 2-Door Sedan for dad, which Jim still has today.<br><br> Bill Barker moved from Concord, California back to Seattle, WA. On the back of his trailer he painted a sign that read "Fresh Air Smells Funny." It got many horn honks and waves during the three day trip north. Bob Helgeson was working at Boeing in Estimating and Florence was staying home happily raising their 1 year old daughter Kimberly.<br><br> Bill Damm had been working at the Boeing Renton 727 flight line for 1 year as an Avionics technician. David White graduated from High School in Burbank, California. He says 1967 was a watershed year for many things, Monterey Pop Festival, Summer of Love, and the Release of "Sgt.<br><br> Peppers". Ernie Tear was out of the Navy and working at Boeing in R & D on the SRAM program, an early version of the Cruise Launch Missile. He dated his future wife Gennette and was driving a 1956 Pontiac.<br><br> Also that year, he volunteered for a layoff from Boe- ing in the fall and returned to college. In a few years he finished school and bought and restored a 1935 Chevrolet Master Business Coupe and joined the Puget Sound Region of the VCCA. George and Anita Warren became parents for the first time and brought their daughter home from the hospital in a 1962 Impala.<br><br> In December they bought a 1968 Impala SS and still own both Chevys. George and Phyllis Kowats had their home built and moved into it in June 1967. Shortly afterwards they brought "Jake", their 1936 pickup home for the start of restoration.<br><br> Dave Haddock used money earned by mowing neighborhood lawns in Colorado to purchase his first motorized wheels, a 1967 Yamaha dirt bike. Diane Haddock got her first job working for a food broker in the historic Boston Custom House.

Custodians of the Glove Box Why Nitrogen? What 9s wrong with cplain old air d?<br><br> Safety Corner A camera for your glove box, The throw away kind is fine, To document an accident, Of a less than happy time. So when disaster strikes, We hope its not your own, Take a picture of the incident, So that it can be shown. DRIVE SAFELY Always c 8Plain old air 9 contains OXYGEN which has smaller molecules that NITROGEN.<br><br> For this reason, OXYGEN escapes from a tire 3 to 4 times faster than Nitrogen. Air also contains moisture. The moisture in air will expand and contract with ambient temperature changes and when the tire heats up from normal operation.<br><br> This results in fluctuating tire pressures. The NITROGEN that Costco uses to inflate tires is absolutely dry. The dry nature of NI- TROGEN helps minimize fluctuating tire inflation pressures.<br><br> Together, moisture and OXY- GEN have the potential to corrode rims and rim hardware. d What is Nitrogen? It is an inert, dry gas that is non-combustible, non-flammable, and non- corrosive. In other words, NITROGEN is as safe as air when used in a tire application.<br><br> Where is NITROGEN found? Nitrogen makes up the majority of the air we breathe. The air we breathe is made up of 78% Nitrogen and 21% Oxygen.<br><br> The other 1% are other gases in small amounts. Nitrogen helps to stabilize a tire 9s inflation pressure when there are no defects or damages to the tire that could promote pressure loss. Stable tire pressure helps maximize Vehicle Handling, Fuel Efficiency, and Tire Life.<br><br> (From the Costco Tire Center bulletin) TAPPET CLATTER Classifieds FOR SALE TAPPET CLATTER 11 WANTED 1931 Chevrolet Independence Sport Roadster (rumble seat) Canadian model., excellent body, rolling chassis, I have lost my storage, hidden hinges and some other oddities compared to U.S. model.
