*If you don't have stripes, you can't use the emblem... Smiley   J/K....

That's what I get for buying a Stripe Delete Z/28.
OK OK.  you get to put your Z28 emblem in the center, or use the RS emblem.. Smiley

I think Jerry hit it on the head; forget the verticals or RS or not..  just center the Z28 emblem under the driver's side stripe...   I spent some time going thru all the photos I have saved for the last few years, and the more original cars do have the Z28 emblem laterally centered under the LHS stripe and centered vertically... Smiley ..    ie..  check the original car that Chick and Skip recently found....  Smiley

Well..   only two reasons I can think of...

1) Restoring one car is a different situation than when the factory was building 90 cars per hr.   Whereas it would have been time consuming at Norwood/VN to 'tape off for nice sharp lines'..  in restoration, it's probably *faster* to do the tape line than to try to 'replicate' what the factory did.

2) 'overspray is not 'pretty'...  and lots of restorers and/or owners would prefer to have their tape lines nice and sharp even though it's not exactly how it was done in the factory.

It depends on your goal and what you want.

Man..  you dredged up an old argument there..  Smiley
and I'm not changing my mind..  it's a Z28 (with RS)..  thus Z28/RS..  Smiley

There was also a '69 Corvette in the building.. sporting a 435 hp, triple carb'ed 427 engine... Smiley

Sitting next to Eddie Sells car was a beautiful frost green '69 Z28 (owned by Frank Arone I believe?)..
The second photo is of the engine compartment of the Rallye Green Yenko sitting in front of the door of the building...

Unless I've forgotten already.. Smiley..  I don't recall seeing a lot of photos from the Carlisle Solid Lifter Display... Smiley

Needless to say, TMR (Eddie's) orange/black Z28 got my eye almost as soon as I entered the building..  that's Eddie with his back turned, wearing his CRG shirt talking to Frank Arone and Eddie's wife facing the camera..

44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 2014 Z28s at Frederick... on: June 30, 2014, 07:59:03 AM
The Camaros at Frederick were not limited to 'old ones'....  Smiley     

We also had a good look at a couple of the new 2014 Z28's while there.  The white one was owned by Charles Lingenfelter (brother of John btw), who had the red/red '67 Z28 going thru judging.  Charles told me that he had owned it 23 hrs when I talked to him briefly.. Smiley
The darker one was owned by Larry Christianson.  I understood he had the stripes painted 'custom' to get that color combo.. List price on the window sticker was $76K... so save your pennies fellas.. Smiley

No, don't have it. Growing up in Atlanta my first car was a 64 GTO 4 speed at 16. Bought it off a high school friend with a spun bearing for $125.00 in 1969. Had a mechanic friend fix it while I was pumping gas at the local Chevron across from my parents house during the summer. Got it all fixed up and got into a boat load of trouble with it and my dad took the keys and had the car shredded into little tiny pieces while I watched. My dad managed an aluminum plant and this car shredding plant for Max and Bobby London Inc, some old Navy friends. After seeing that my new job was running a pedestal crane 60 feet in the air dropping cars into that shredder. I was 17 that summer. Oh, I had one car explode when someone below didn't tell me the gas tank was still in it. What a bang. 

OMG..   shredded?  literally?   '64 GTO was one of my favorite cars of the mid-60's...  a HS classmate had one, and  I will remember forever his passing the school bus (that I was riding home in) .. full bore, cutouts open...  I didn't care for that fella, but I loved his car.. Smiley
