Yea it is a popular topic and the spaceing after NOR is not there, and also real tags have the numbers further to the edge of the trim plate.Got to say they did get the fonts pretty close huh?

I don't know that much about them to say if it's a fake or not, here's a picture of mine that I know is real. It's from a 68 if that will help. I don't know if that makes a difference or not. You can compare..

I have seen some tags where the bottom left rivit was touching a number or group number.that tag the numbers are far to the right of the rivits.

Looks like the tag off of an Ebay ad for a 67 SS that's been/being discussed on Team Camaro.

The 2nd line "E" for AC on a car with a non-AC firewall was what caught my attention.

- 1998 Z28 LS1/M6 (daily driver)
- 2002 Z28 LS1/4L60E (12 sec toy/bookend to the 67)

The rivets are definitely wrong, looks like standard pop rivets.
