Great pics, Ed. Wish that underhood shot had been a Z -

Brings back a lot of memories visiting the local showrooms of Nashville's Chevrolet dealers - including the near miss purchase my dad passed on in '67 (an SS Chevelle convertible, 4 speed car - I was foaming at the mouth when he didn't buy it. He waited until the '68's came out and bought an Impala Custom Coupe in gold, black vinyl top and bench seat interior. At least it had a 327/350 TH in it -)

Regards,
Steve

Austin, That paper Van Nuys tag is just a repop Item ordered from Vendors a few years ago, Since I am a west Coaster Most Camaros around Wa (PWN) seem to be LOS (VN) Bodies. Looks Neat on the Dash at a Show.

Dealers in Wa are assigned a Dealer Number as part of their registration with the State (Taxes & B&O) things.

SOUTH TACOMA MOTOR COMPANY
D-199

Here is a snap shot of the original "Pink Slip" for the car obtained at the time I purchased it in 1983, For when the car sold NEW in May of 1968.

I was walking thru a local swap meet and looked down at a stack of dealer plates issued for Model year 1968 & low and behold Dealer Number 0199
BINGO
I chose the suffix "J" plate for me (JIM)
Best 15$ dollar plate i EVER found!
