John,

Where can I get one of those CRG hats?

Paul

As I recall, we had a small number of those made 8-10 years ago, just for the Core Group.

Would be nice to have something to wear to events. Would be easier to spot each other. I have been to a number of events, mostly at englishtown and carlisle. Other than one very brief conversation with a very busy Jerry, to my knowledge, I have never met a CRG member.

I looked at my car today and it has the mark. Mine lines up with the inside pin stripe on the passenger side. My weather strip isn't centered on the latch. It comes together on the left side and lines up with the side of the latch. Have pictures but need to make them smaller

The redish stripe/ mark is on just about every unrestored Camaro we have certified. Very comon and certainly not graffiti.

Pic of another survivor and the trunk w/s mark. Located in the area of the right side Z/28 stripe.
Some restored cars utilize a painted stripe to duplicate but it seems to be a type of grease pencil mark
from the factory. Is that the opinion of Steve and others in the camaro community that have observed
many survivors?

Again that is what I have observed. Also as noted the stripe is located toward the right side of the trunk upper opening. Certainly possible but I have not seen the seam line up perfectly with the trunk latch as noted in John Z example. The seam is usually found a couple inches on either side of the latch. My point being it was not a requirement to line up, and not comonly observed by me or the Vintage Certification team.

We will be certifying cars at the MCACN (www.mcacn.com ) in Chicago 11/17 & 18 and will have a couple of unrestored 1st gen camaros being certified. Stop by and I'll show you the stripes.... We will also have several make and model cars certified by our team of  specialist, such as 65 Shelby Mustang, AAR Cuda,. LS6 Chevelle, 69 Talladega and others.

It's normally a light grease pencil mark (IIRC, not red). Fisher used it to center the trunk ws. Not very visible, per design.
And very rarely is the ws truly centered.

Totally agree with Kurt, the red mark was the center off the seal. I have seen this on quit a few original cars, slightly to the right of center which put the seam ( Usually, but not always ) left of the latch.
 These marks are pretty common on other Chevy's too, sometime a double paint mark with two colors.
See you in Chicago Steve.

One theory was that it was the center of the seal but I found too many marks that were more than six inches off from center. Another theory was it may have been an inspection mark used to identify that the trunk lid/ seal had passed water leak test. I will post pics of my 14k mile car, where both the mark and seam are left of center which would make the portion of the seal to the left of the mark much shorter. Just an observation.

Mike I'm also looking forward to seeing you and Grady and his fantastic unrestored Nova. BTW on the Camaro side we also have a 5k mile 71 Z28 for certification and a 1970 #2 pilot Camaro.

This is from my 14 K survivor. The mark is about 4 inches to left of center and the seam is about the same distance left of center. If the point of the mark was to locate the center point they we off quite often In this example about 8 inches, but it wasn't critical measurement anyway. I live on LI so I'm dealing with the damage hurricane sandy left so I won't be able to see my other survivor cars until the weekend. I'll take more pics then.
