By 1974, possibly even earlier, they were just using screws to hold on tags. Here is a 1974 Z28 tag.

Of course not acceptable for 1969.

You gotta admit, it's not going to fall off the firewall -

Actually looks neater than the #10 sheet metal screws we had one proud local owner show up at a car show sporting on his "X33 Z28" a couple of years back - really.

Does it spell TCBY ? Is there a "C" behind the hood hinge ? Maybe it was built by a franchise owner -

Good one -
