That's probably exactly what it is..  :)    One was supposed to remove those decals when cars were traded or sold, but many/most didn't do so..  This one on my car was put on in 1976 or so... :)

I mounted mine on a piece of plexiglass and had it on the dash when I went on base. Some of the sentry guards didn't like it, but I was never ordered to put the sticker on the bumper. Back then I shaved all emblems, decals, dealer plates and emblems for a clean look. Today, I treasure them.

67 RS Camaro ( I wonder if it's a real Z ? a lot of people added the emblems) at Duke's Italian,  any one know where that might

 have been ? I would say it's the late 70's- '80s.

Considering 67 Zs only had 302 emblems on the fenders, it's definitely not a stock emblem from the factory. Whether it was a Z28 and he installed 68 Z28 emblems on it, or just pretending it's a Z is anybody's guess.

1967 Z/28s had no emblems. 1968 used 302 emblems early. In about March 68 Z/28 emblems were used.....Joe

I knew the early 68s had the 302 emblems, and went to the Z28 emblems later, but for some reason I thought the 302 was carried over from 67. My mistake, thanks for the info.
