I think the question is "What is your point?"

Since you are posting here you must have some reason for posting?

  As in something worth contributing to the conversation?

IF you don't, then don't post on my Thread.  Thanks!   :P :P

Are you Shopping for a Small block or Big block 1968 or maybe own one already, the production numbers and surviving cars sure account to rarity (availability) and market value (costs)

Hey Jim.
I have read many of your posts.  You are very helpful to many members seeking help and info.

No I wasn't considering values or which is better... It was a simple observation from the CRG data that I had never noticed before.  I would have thought that there would have been more small block SS cars since I figured that the factory would probably have produced more 350 cars than 396s.  I love big blocks.  And I love ALL 1st gen camaros.  :D 

 I have been using CRG since around 1999.  I have been a member of Camaros.net since 2001.

I have a 68 RS SS 350 that I bought in 1983.  My first Camaro was in 1978.  It was a 67 big block 396 4 speed car.  It had been turned into a Bracket car.  I built the car myself when I was 16.
And yes, I was the creator of the thread on this forum.  And we are all contributors with our posts to the thread.
So it's not mine, but I started it.  :D
Thanks for contributing the ways these cars can be valued differently based on many factors, some of which you pointed out for us.

Nope. You have to add the 272 L89 engines and the 4575 L78 together. It also has it's own engine suffix code, MT vs MQ.
Show me a 1968 WS that has both L78 and L89 options on it and I will change my mind.
L78 and L89 were separate options on the window sticker.
