What motivation would GM have for getting involved in the fake trim tag issue? Their business is selling new cars. The cars involved in this issue are not new. For them to get involved would require legal expenses which they would  be unable to recover? What would be in it for them?

I believe that the 57 Ford outsold the 57 Chevy. Hard to believe today. Where did all those 57 Fords go?? I know several that are now part of a river bank. I guess they helped slow erosion?

Thanks for the info. I guess at the very beginning of a new model run, eg 67 Camaro, dealers were really going out on a limb since they had no history on which to base their orders. If a model was a dud, they could be sitting on some expensive inventory.

Curiosity, Who actually initiated orders for 67-69 Camaros? Some were obviously customer initiated by individuals at dealerships. Did dealerships order cars based on what they thought they could sell? ie, colors, models, etc? Did someone in Chevrolet marketing order car models/colors based on what they thought would sell? A combination of all of the above?

575  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 69 Tach - no gauges on: July 11, 2007, 09:59:24 AM
I see a Z/28 on e bay which has a tach, but not oil-water-ammeter-fuel gauges in console. Fuel gauge is between tach and speedometer in dash. I assume this is correct, but do not recall seeing this before?
Is this arrangement pretty uncommon?

I actually do have a fairly original 69 Z which I've had for 25 years, but I think if I ever tried to sell it, (I won't)  half the population would probably think I am a fraud or a liar!
Been told many times it can't be a Z without tach/gauges, no such thing as a rally sport Z, etc., etc.

Got it, Thanks Ed
578  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: X77 Trim on: July 08, 2007, 07:24:49 PM
Thanks Ed. It does. I just see so many cars on e bay with "incorrect" stuff, that after a while I begin to think it's me.

Would an X77 car come with the chrome wheel opening moldings, chrome quarter panel louvers, and the bright roof drip rails? I thought these were X33 trim?

I'm just curious. Did the line ever stop, or it ran basically continuously?? Unless there was some major snafu?

RJ_RS_SS_350, you are correct.

583  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Body Tag No. versus VIN on: June 29, 2007, 09:52:28 AM
I know that body no.'s and VIN no.'s are not in sequence, but is there still a general correlation between the two? That is, would an expert looking at a trim tag be able to spot a fake from a body no. that would be out of range for a VIN/build date?

584  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: '69 exhaust manifold. on: June 27, 2007, 03:08:40 PM
My original manifolds from my 69 Z are on the shelf in my basement, since I am running headers. Makes me wonder if these cars are worth more together or in parts?? $1500.00 is amazing. No way I could sell them separate from the car, however. I know I'm naive, but money's not everything.

Makes sense to me. Note that my VIN is 516355 and my Trim Tag  is 10B.
