1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: black on tailpan on ss cars on: October 27, 2013, 12:51:28 PM
How skeptical people can be. As for pics (they were polaroids back then) as far as I know all were lost in a fire on Labor Day 1976 along with part of the skin on my wrist. Yes anyone can join a site and say anything. There seemed to be quite a discussion about the black tailpan and I offered the benefit of the knowledge of a person who actually ordered a brand new 1968 RS/SS 396 Camaro, who had to wait around 6 weeks for it and, picked it up at the dealership when it arrived. The memories from a person who spent many weekends washing the car and now many people many think I may be offering an opinion about the satin black instead of fact. I really do not need to research history when I "lived" the history. That was a very special car to me as it was not only my first Camaro (I have owned several since then) but, it was my very first car, the one I remember the most. I have many fond memories listening to The Doors on my 8 track tape player while cruisin' around town. Now I wonder how many on this site actually own a Camaro! How many of you even think I never owned a Camaro! Through all the posts I read about this....not one person  expressed actually ordering the Camaro (again, actually living the history, not having to research it). The tailpan was painted satin black. For those non believers you have your opinions.

Just came upon this site and decided to add my 2 cents (well 2 cents in '68....probably a quarter today) Anyway, read a lot of posts about the gloss and semi-gloss debate and from what I can tell almost all, if not all, are opinions. Hope this will set the record straight as I actually ordered a new 1968 RS/SS 396 Camaro from Southeast Chevrolet (it no longer exists) on Broadway Ave in Cleveland, Ohio in February of 1968 and it arrived in May. Bottom line................The tailpan was painted a Satin Black when it arrived at the dealership. It was a real striking contrast to the LeMans Blue color on the car. So, unless someone else "Actually ordered" and picked up a new 1968 396 Camaro please consider it an opinion as my statement is fact. Thanks for the opportunity to clear up the debate on this subject.
