256  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 RS Convertible with special-order two-tone interior - RARE FIND? on: December 31, 2005, 01:25:57 PM
I have a 68 RS with a 722 interior and its also two-tone...now. A previous owner covered the seats and the tops of the door panels with a dark green vinyl w/original pattern. The dash pad is also green. Everything else is still gold and it all looks pretty good. I intend to change it back to all gold eventually because I think the gold ext/gold int Camaro is hot!

Some states, like Maryland, will issue VIN plates for theft recoveries and "replicars".

  Funny, the same issue road tests both the new 390 GTA Mustang and the 67 Plymouth GTX. The GTX gets nothing but praise and C&D admits suprise to how awesome the big block Mustang handles. Go figure. However, the March 1967 Car and Driver got ahold of the 67 Z28 and, reluctanly, gave it an OK...."With the Z-28, Chevy is on the way toward making the gutsy stormer the Camaro should have been in the first place." also..."As a racing car, we expect the Z-28 to do quite well. Modified to the legal limit, the 302 engine should be capable of 390 horsepower."
   Great reading (or re-reading) material that gives me a little perspective having never experienced these cars when they were new. I did just sell my 66 Mustang 2+2 this summer in favor of a 68 RS to bring my Camaro count to three, if there were any doubt as to where my heart lies on this subject.
  Thanks for all replies,

  After reading the Road Research Report on the 67 Camaro SS350 in my Nov. 1966 Car and Driver magazine I have to wonder if people, in 1966, saw the Camaro as a major disappointment. Seems C&D had not much good to say about the car as they used the first three paragraphs to absolutly trash Chevrolet and the Camaro. Apparently, nothing on the test car could please them. From the "mildly tuned" 350, to the Corvair derived styling, to the french or spanish meaning of the name Camaro, the car just could not meet their expectations. "Chevrolet's Camaro does not offer the extremes of performance that the Mustang does."C&D says.- When compared to the 390 GT and no mention of the following SS396 or Z28.
  For those of you who were potential buyers and/or enthusiats at the time (1966,67) did you feel the same? I was not around until 7 years later so by the time I had an opinion, the cars were already classics (old). I've owned and driven both a 66 Mustang FB and several Camaros but my judgement had already been skewed by newer, better handling, and better built cars.
 Thanks for any input.
