Triple A Window sticker
« on: February 05, 2006, 06:46:07 AM »
I was just looking through some paper work I have on one of my cars. Back in 1982 the previous owner had a search done by Triple A Enterprises using the cowl tag and vin # to reproduce a window sticker/option code document. What, if any, valid information could this Co. aquire back then? I'm guessing its just an old scam?

Don't know if it is a scam or not... but they are still on the web. :-\
Here's what the site says,

 Triple A Enterprises has been printing correct window stickers since 1979 with GM's and Chryslers approval."

And I did find this in the "small print": "This document does not validate or authenticate cars."


--Of course, you cannot believe everything you see in print --even electronically.  Not sure what GM approval means... I've been watching a couple of these sites wondering if it is worth it.
What do some of you other veterans think? ??? ??? ???

Triple-A doesn't do any "search" on cars, but they've developed a pretty good database over the years for dealer/zone numbers, ECL codes, base car and RPO prices, etc. They just create a repro window sticker based on the information you send them and apply what they feel are the correct ECL codes, prices, and dealer/zone numbers or names (if they have them). Good for car show displays, but won't fool a document specialist; I have them made for my cars - car show spectators get a kick out of the 30-40 year old prices. :-)

John,
Do you have your window sticker posted in your window or as part of some other display? ???
If in the window, where? (Driver's side front?)

I had it laminated in heavy plastic (at Kinko's) and put it on a clipboard over the hood latch so spectators can see it without having to walk around the car.

Thanks, John!  That's a great idea. 
But I cannot imagine anyone not wanting to walk all the way around your car... twice! ;D

Hi guys a lot of great info here. Would a special order car have a window sticker with standard pricing on it? reason I have the original invoice for my car and while it only has about 6 options it seems like the dealer discounted them, because when you total them up using the factory costs the sum is like $300 more. maybe special order cars didn't have window stickers?please let me know thanks

Here is the link to CRG's RPO's. IMO the best on the web. Not only do you have the prices for each of the RPO's but you also have the numbers sold for each category. Begin your search by looking for your RPO on the left hand column.

Nice to have another certifiable Camaro nut on board...welcome!

Every car had a window price sticker - it was required by federal law, and showed the manufacturer's suggested retail pricing (MSRP). Dealers could discount pricing any way they wanted, but those discounts only showed on the dealer's in-house invoice, not on the window sticker.
