Thanks for clarifying that Jon. I was thinking it was an article written before Z28 production started, but obviously that was not the case.

Correction, they made the claim that Capri Cream was the only available color as far back as the April '67 issue of Speed & Supercar magazine, as seen in the following link... http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=12279.0

Capri Cream was not a preferred color.  Vince Piggins asked his boss for a car to use to make a prototype of a Trans-Am eligible Camaro and they gave him an already built car from the Proving Ground motor pool. It was probably outfitted the closest to what he was requesting and happened to be cream.

Nice!! Can you find a Sierra Fawn one?

Have not been able to find a picture of a Sierra Fawn 1967 Z28.

I bought a Sierra Fawn '67 RS from the original owner back in 1988.  It was the first 1st gen Camaro I've owned.  I sold it in 1994.  I didn't realize at the time how rare that color was.  I often wish I kept it.
