YES.

Pic attached. What I wanted to show in this pic is how well the Top chrome (Stainless) trim flows into the belt reveal at the top of the door when viewed from the rear.
Nice feature with the 68's so equipped.

( Yes I race my numbers matching factory born with drive train for 10 years now at our local track on street tire friday night drags Smiley

Jim,
Great looking car!  Great looking event... Where (and what) is it?
And spot on observation about how the belt reveal, trim, and vinyl top (especially black) come together for a great look (line) in your 68 (and others so equipped).

Mo,
Interesting comment on the "floating" look of 69 vinyl tops.  Wonder if that's what the designers were after when they made that change in the look of the top?

Keep the pics and comments coming...

Parchment top on my 69 RS.  Really sets it off with the white sticks/interior on Rallye Green.

69camcon,
Welcome!  Great looking car!
Mo's comment about the floating look of a 69 has me looking at the 69 tops in a different way.
Could you post a side and back view of your 69?

Thanks for the welcome, been reading on here & on some other boards, had to chime in with the Vinyl as I'm a big fan.  Here's some more pics for you.

Phillip,
 Thanks again. Its almost all finished after a re-paint a couple of years ago, still lacking proper starter and distributor.
 ( I likely changed the originals out myself in the early Eightys)  All original "born with" Drive train. 396 M-21,   Standard black interior, gauges. I love vinyl tops!
