Couple more...

There were a few others there and at the Saturday national meet....


Wow! Closest color match to my Z I've seen. Only diff is RS. Well, mine also has black interior.

The Z/28 emblem would override the R/S emblem. Chevy wouldn't put two emblems on the car. What would they do on the rear body panel?
We CRGers know how it is supposed to be, but what about the guys building them back then. This may have been the first Z or, at least, Z/RS built in 69! Maybe there was some confusion or no clarity at the start of production and it got both emblems. Is that possible? Who knows if that is even the original grille. I am just throwing out an idea that perhaps early in production, some anomalies may have occured until assemblies were clarified by supervision. I could see how it could be possible to leave the plant with both emblems myself. Others have a thought? JohnZ? Ed?

Anything is possible, but two emblems on the grille would stick out like a sore thumb and probably wouldn't make it out of the plant. There were only two possible rear panel emblems - the Bowtie, and the Z/28, both of which had the same pre-pierced pin/hole pattern.

I thought there was also an RS rear panel emblem on rally sports that were neither SS or Z/28?

The only emblem on a R/S Z that wouldnt be "Z/28" would be "rally-sport" on the sides of the fenders.  Normally where the Camaro script would be.  Grille front edge of fenders and tail panel are "Z/28"

That's how mine is.

Oct 68 RS/Z rear emblem

Maybe the guy who bought it is the one who has that TV show. Can't think of the name of the show, but he's a character, and his wife's a well endowed blonde. One of those soap opera car shows where they wheel and deal cars, fix up, and supposedly make money.

So I looked at the auction, and noticed a couple of things different from my 69 RS/Z; Mine's a 10B (1968 build) car, so a month later than this one. No RS emblem on my grille, so maybe someone added that to this car? My steering wheel is also different. I have an RS emblem on my steering wheel. Mine has the wood grain insert as well. Should this one have the RS emblem on the steering wheel? I see the the bright pedal trim, so it's got the special interior group trim I believe.
37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heavy undercoating was it factory or dealer applied? on: June 05, 2014, 08:31:37 AM
Had a friend who had his 84 Camaro Zee Barted when new. Guaranteed not to rust. So when it started rusting under the hood, he took it to them and they "fixed" it. They wire brushed to rust off and sprayed more Zee Bart. What a joke!. Oh, and by the way, the Zee Bart job voided his factory rust warranty. So he got it from both ends. Are those Zee Bart guys still around?

I thought the attorneys got involved with the Rally Green Z. Maybe he got his money back? Never really heard the out come of all that.

There was a guy in my area who did a lot of Corvette resto's as well as other muscle cars. The place is gone now. Rumor I heard was that he's in jail now for misrepresenting some Corvette that he sold several years ago.

I love 55 Chevy's, but what they are doing to them nowadays  doesn't appeal to me. I like the 60's/70's hot rod versions, but I hardly ever see them like that anymore. I guess today's versions don't jive with my nostalgia version.

Show how naive I am. Never heard that. Guess I better not tell anybody that I used to street raced! They'd spot me for a fraud in 5 seconds!! Cheesy

That one didn't behave or sound like any z28 I've ever seen or heard...  it made the fella who made the video look like a 'joke'....

I agree. Sounds nothing like mine. What kind of exhaust did it have?  And why the always on backup lights?
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: May 14, 2014, 10:03:39 AM
After reading Gary's post I'm curious to see what mine says, since I know the original dealer (or at least I think I do) by the original new car warranty sticker which is still on the back of my rear view mirror. We'll see if the report matches up.

Oops! Looks like I'm outta  luck. One of the missing ones 516355

Yeah, but the shipping is free!!
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Muncie Transmission tag (pn?) on: May 08, 2014, 02:53:47 PM
So I'm assuming the M22 was only available over a narrow range of rear end ratios, thus only needing 1 part no.?
