Strange Trim Tag
« on: November 06, 2010, 06:08:15 PM »
What's up with the trim tag on this Camaro? Is it a foreign produced car or just a bad reproduction.

I think your right Paul. Putting those two tags next to each other and they look an awful lot alike. You don't see too many of those around.

That's interesting. I wonder how it got to Canada.

Thanks Kurt,

I did e-mail the gentleman that was selling it and he stated:    (I bought it from a dealer that bought it from a guy that bought it from his friend who had imported it from Venezuela. From what i was told, it was kept in a garage up until the dealer bought it).

That Camaro is about 1 and a half hour of my home. I talked with that guy and he ask about 14500$  He says he had the original AC system! If you look at the under car picture, you'll see the floor painted with some kind of orange paint of primer ? This is the same thing for my car. Any Idea for this paint ?
