General Discussion / Re: White trim tag
« on: May 25, 2015, 03:48:52 PM »
What is the significance of a white trim tag? I've seen this mentioned a couple of times but no real info as to what it means. I have a 67 SS 350 4P car 04 Dec build from Norwood that I'm tracking info on. :-\

Yep, there were some that were painted white in 67. The tag on my early 68 also seems to have had some white paint on it originally (09C car). 

Gary, it's OK.  Just messin' with you a little.  :D

I have never heard anything like that.

Gary, it is hard to disagree with solid number evidence from the database.
And you are seeing the numbers in the poll, right? ;D

Rare to me would mean less than 1000 cars in a model year.

"Collector" might be a more appropriate term.  But I hear you!  :D

Thanks Bill!

Everyone else - My estimate is just what I have seen in my area. :)

And RS/SS cars in 69 are less common around here than RS/Z28s.

Steve, let me check on that.  I am not sure at the moment.

Edit:  OK I checked, and added the max number of votes to 5.  If anyone has more than 5, send me a PM.  If you have multiple cars and multiple votes, feel free to let us know in the thread with a post.  No requirement for that though.

It's cool Gary.  No issues.  I did not take it as an attack but wanted to make sure things did not start to escalate.  I respect your opinion.  I just don't think they are all that rare.  Just my experience..  I am sure we would be laughing about it by now if we were discussing this over a cold beverage of choice.   ;D

Just a difference of opinion Gary.  And the topic is production numbers on RS Z28s, so that is what I am talking about. 

No need to get personal.  Everyone can have an opinion and I am not challenging yours.  But I can have an opinion too.

I will make a clarification on that.  Thanks Gary.

FOR THOSE THAT ALREADY VOTED - I changed the categories.  So you may have to change your vote.  I apologize for the inconvenience on that but Gary's suggestion was a very good one.

There is a separate thread asking about 1969 Z28 Camaros with the RS option and production numbers.  There are no solid numbers on how many 1969 Z28s also had the RS option, so we are doing this poll.  Thanks in advance!

From my time playing with these cars during the late '60's and early '70's...  I don't recall seeing very many '69 RS-Z28's at all.    OTOH, I do remember seeing most of the RS options attached to SS Camaros, or base V8 Camaros...  the RS option was a way to make the car look good.   Most Z28 buyers wanted their car to 'go fast'.. :) ..   they were also predominantly young men, who had more 'need for speed', than $$.   I'd also bet that a very large percentage of Z28 buyers were servicemen... (as MOST young men were in the service during that period - or college (but their money went to tuition) - and the servicemen had a place to sleep and food for 'free', so all we had to spend our money on were cars, insurance, and gas (leaving out other necessities such as booze and girls)!.. :)

Gary, that is going to depend a lot on WHERE you are talking about.  That may be the case where you were at the time, but not around here. 

I may start a poll on the site to see who has what.  It won't be scientific, but it might be interesting.

Ah, thanks Mr. Miller.  Very detailed.  I haven't seen that page before.  I guess I haven't figured out how to navigate the site.  I go to the home page and can't really find many options to click around.  It appears I'm stuck in the discussion forum section for some reason, lol.

If you want - go to the main page.

Then from that main page, you can click on the different areas where text is displayed.  For example, there are sections on Exterior, Interior, Underhood, Engine, Transmission, etc. near the top.  Then toward the bottom of the page more links such as Technical Articles, Research Topics, About The CRG, etc.  

LOTS of stuff to view when you have extra time.   :)

We also have a link to the production numbers and options broken down by year, cost and production on our CRG page.  Here is the PDF link. You can zoom in as needed to make the font display larger.

Welcome Mark. 

Your name will now display when you "mouse over" the image of your car that is displayed.  I did not change the file name itself yet.
