    70 Manual Disc Brake Problem

    Unless your problem is air in the line, manual brakes stop as well as power, you just need to press a little harder. Your problem is probably that you are not used to pressing harder. I have never had an issue using my manual brakes.

    Anyone Have Coker Wide-Oval Bias or Radial Tires?

    I assume that when you are talking about 'bias-ply' you really mean 'bias-belted'. Bias-ply's are not that good and should be avoided. Bias-belted are ok to use. Radials will handle better than either.

    How old is the antifreeze in your engine?

    I've always used the regular 'green' (IAT) antifreeze. I'm still not sure what is the best to top it off or what should never be used to top it off.

    F78-14 Bias-ply Tires on a '70

    FWIW, I know some use the terms interchangeably but they should be bias-belted, not bias-ply.

    Crate Engines

    FWIW, there was a chart in either MT or C&D a year or so back showing the best bang for the buck of numerous crate engines. The LS3 came out on top. I think it was rated at 400 or 430HP.

    Does numbers matching really "matter"?

    You asked if numbers matching matters and it does. There is value associated with numbers matching. That doesn't mean that a highly modified car wont necessarily sell for more.

    So how good are the Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) guys?

    They are OK but they have their limits and I'm afraid yours passed it.

    straight 6 camaros are left

    People bought the Camaro for style and handling, not always for acceleration numbers, and did not want to pay for premium gas.
