CHP area office 420, c'mon now, I guess that means I need to go roll one for the car, and it is CA. Seriously though, Bakersfield, I think?
Thanks Sam, that is the first indication that I have had where the car worked.

Out if curiosity, do you have any docs from the '70?

I really wish my dads had had a problem, cause then we could have found out where it served too.

And yes my dad has the 70s documents He will have to find them though

Yep, Bakersfield. Same office as mine, right there at 4040 Buck Owens Blvd.

What luck have you guys had in the past and/or what suggestions do you have for going about contacting the offices where these cars served in hopes of getting a name?

I spoke with a Lieutenant at Quincy, CA Station where my car served. Nobody was around any more from those days. I knew my car was involved in an accident while in-service (judging by the paint layers on the shoddy repair), but that tidbit of info did not help him find out anything about my car.

I am blown away! Thanks, Sam. A big hearty thank you. 0567 here. That's good to find out. I've been under the belief that my engine and trans may not be original to the car. Still, I'm working on a full restoration. As much as I can do.

Keep it coming. This is great stuff and more reason to keep the car. It's been a toss up since I got the car whether or not it would go if I had to part with anything from my collection. The more I've learned and documented, the more I've worked on this car, the more I've grown attached to it. I recently made a firm decision to do my best to keep this car, and the Camaro, as being so rare and special to the police pursuit car evolution. Even my Pontiac friend told me to keep the CHP because it was such a rare and cool car.

I contacted the office my car served at and spoke with the PIO there. He was extremely friendly and took my name and number, car number and said he would ask around because some retirees still come in there. That was last fall and I've yet to hear anything. I don't want to bug them, so I haven't called back yet. Maybe Steve will turn up something one day since he worked there.

Ironic, too, I just bought the service manuals on eBay last night and texted a friend, "let the real work begin." Now I read all this. And spring is here!! More daylight!!

Thanks again!! Greg
