Those studs were actually for chroming/dipping purposes.Most chroming companies removed them after the process some dealers requested they leave them on.When I worked at a Chevrolet dealership a memorandum came down from GM to stop using pinned emblems the the trunklids were rusting from the drill holes and had to be repaired under warranty.Thats when the all emblems were to be doubleside taped.

Good to know!  Thanks!

Did the dealership you called send that to you Darrel?  OR did you find it elsewhere?    Regardless it looks neat, and will enhance your car.. Smiley


No I havent heard a word from the dealership.  I called last week just to touch base with them and left a message and of course I still have heard nothing.  I got this from a guy over on yenko.net; he has a bunch of different ones and I just happen to see it in a post and pm'ed him about it and bought it from him.  Great guy and was happy to help out another car guy..

Scoop's (Larry's) 68 RS/Z is one sweet ride.  He sent me pics of it once he was there.  This is just making me want to go next year..  Is it me or was there not a lot of 68's at the show?  At least by the pics at this point.

thanks for the pics Gary. I couldn't quite read the placard on the green 69 Z. What was the significance of that car according to the plaque?


Says:  "The ONLY Documented Z with a X11 Trim Tag and a "M" Code Block"

Other than that it is too small for me to read.

Great pics thus far!!  Got any more 68 pics for the few "8" junkies among us?

No hard time taken.  I appreciate your correcting my post...  (but you should know that it could turn into an almost full time job!).. Smiley

Ill just keep the corrections for 68 comments.  Ill let someone else have 69's & 7's..  lol  Lord knows I been wrong more than once or twice..    Roll Eyes  Thats what I like about this place we can all talk about things and make corrections without everyone getting all butt hurt.  Well most of us..   Shocked

Ok done hijacking..

I recall from when I purchased my 69 Z28/RS in 1976, the emblem location 'didn't look right' to me, and I moved it..  I was basing that decision on the location of the emblem on my '68 Z28 (non RS) car I'd traded for the '69.. but I had no doc/manual to go by..   it was purely by 'look' to me, but I'd been around original Z28's since 1968, but not many RS models.

I *think* the various locations of the Z28 emblem on an RS grill comes from the fact that the RS grill 'seems more narrow' than the std grill to the eye, and maybe the 'black color' of it?, and the factory assembly manual instructions shows the 'std' grill, and doesn't address the RS grill location...


FYI 68's didnt have Z emblems in the grill. Tongue

you're right DW.. Smiley   I typed too fast and had a brain fart.. Smiley   

To clarify... " I was basing my conclusion that my RS Z28 grill emblem placement as being 'wrong' on being around MANY non-RS 69 Z28's in the past... Smiley   "

Just giving you a hard time..   Grin

There's a good thread on this but I can't find the link I thought I saved. I think this is Gary's car. Mine was similar. Had grey in tunnel and foot board areas. I believe black was over the grey. I used sikkens rally black over ppg epoxy primer on my car. Sikkens is pricey but excellent product.

I believe that is George's car (NoYenko).

Post a pic of the code off the rearend & of the trim tag too.  Doesn't look like there is a plate there unless there is serious undercoating on it.  Id get out the scrapper.

welcome Newb geb78. You say the engine is original? HAcode? How could it be anything but an SS? Of course, the first thing that will be asked on this site (so, I will go ahead and ask) is to provide pictures of the Trim Tag and engine stamps/castings/dates/all partial VINs. Hopefully, you have studied all the related information on the site already and can conclude on your own what you have since there is so much information that is presented so well by our site administrators and founders with more detail  topics(and sarcasm/humor) provided by our knowledgable members, here, in the forum. Agree, your pic is hard to determine the "plate". It looks more to be an outline of where a rear ex. hanger was located, but the holes are way too big, so more pics needed, maybe cleaning off that area.


Beat me to it..

I remember the car.
Block is a restamp.

And it looks it too!!!

Don't like the alt stamp.

Alt is a restamp IMHO.

I got this in the mail today.  From the Capitol chevrolet in Austin TX.  It used to have studs on the back but were broken off & adhesive applied.  This is just another piece to the puzzle on the 68.  Very happy

Too bad its not Hugger Orange..    Roll Eyes


That poor car needs to be led out back and shot.  Or maybe all the previous owners...
