A search didn't come up with anything on this VIN so I thought I would post it. Hopefully people are searching these VIN's before buying and getting ripped off.

I've no idea if the tag is fake or not, but if you are going to fake one..  why not a beautiful orange/black Z28.. :)
(no wonder everyone loves those colors...   I'm guessing that Bullitt is going to bid on this one).. :)

Totally wrong rear and mounting hardware.   Wrong manifolds.   57 miles on the odometer?    And the list goes on.

What is up with that rear spring mount???  The spring mounts are deep multis as well as the multi shock plate, they are all correct, but it looks like they left old spring pads or spacers in there.  why would they do that? If they mounted them correctly, it would raised the rear up to a more proper level.  And of course the upside down cowl seal, tsk.

That is one of my big 'irks' also, Kevin..   Seems half the cars I see at car shows (even the nationals) has their cowl seal upside down (and inside out).   TIP:   When you purchase a new/repro cowl seal, it seems it is turned inside out (and most just install it that way)..    If you will first unroll it (turn it opposite), the little sealing lip will lip around the metal plate on top of the air cleaner, and the rubber will turn 'OUT' as it's supposed to...  :)   I can't help myself from attempting to correct the owners when I see this..  some appreciate it, and some don't..  :)  and the latter ones I let go on in their ignorance...

It's possible...the rest of the tag looked similar to mine.  I emailed the dealer to ask them to post pics of the engine stamp, trans, and rear end. So I am hoping to see those and compare them to mine.

I wasn't saying that the tag wasn't fake, I was just wondering if I missed anything else on it. I'm hoping to buy myself a 1969 Z/28 someday and am trying to learn as much as I can so I don't end up on the wrong side of the deal someday.  ;D BTW what was the ballpark date on spoilers becoming mandatory on Z/28's? I read on the CRG site that they did became mandatory late in production but couldn't find the ballpark date.

Definately do not want to hijack topic, but a COPO is for sale also on eBay that does not have spoilers. Weren't all COPOs (L72) spoiler mandatory trim cars too? I thought? I know the Z in question has the spoilers and trim tag is wrong, so I am not confused on topic and perhaps should have a new post, just was on my mind when reading about D80.

Well from what I read on the CRG site on the D80 option, the only cars that were required to have spoilers were the pace car replicas and later build date Z/28's. Still would like to know when the spoilers became a mandatory option on Z/28's though.
