Man..  you dredged up an old argument there..  Smiley
and I'm not changing my mind..  it's a Z28 (with RS)..  thus Z28/RS..  Smiley

My German heritage would not allow me to state anything before "SSCheesy
All kidding aside, I'm with Gary on this one. I believe the primary designation would be the 'base' model (base motor or performance -SS or Z) followed by an appearance option (RS).

Hey Mike & Gary,
I thought the same thing but if Chevrolet referred to them as RS/SS I'm reconsidering....though I still think it SHOULD have been SS/RS. Smiley

I feel like when we are talking about our cars, we refer to them as "ss" or "Z".... we all have camaros, so the model of camaro we have becomes the noun as we use it to refer to the car, leaving the word Camaro out . Thus in proper English, the descriptor would typically come first:

Burnished brown Z
Dusk Blue SS
Garnet red L-78
Rs SS
Fathom green Rs Z/28

In spanish, well that would quite something else....

Which is Dusk Blue Super Sport
Forgive the translation if its wrong, but just to illustrate.
egg then chicken I think

It has always been RS/SS and RS/Z28 to me.  I can't say it any other way.

Is it a Super Sport Camaro with the RS option, or a Rally Sport Camaro with the SS option?

When asked what you drive, do you say;

I have a Rally Sport, or I have a Super Sport?

The performance option in front makes more sense to me.

If you're looking at a 68 or 69 ZRS it has a bold "Z/28" & in small block letters it says "rally sport" meaning Chevrolet wanted the Z/28 to be dominant not rally sport. On a SS/RS the SS was what Chevrolet wanted their car to be known as. No difference in badging at all. 2 more of my cents...Joe

Basic english. With emblems removed on Z's and SS's. . .  Would you say " a blue car" or " a car blue"? Always will be RS/SS.

How about just a plain brown wrapper? That's what we use to call the unmarked police cars in the 60's and 70's. I agree with others, I have always used RS first then SS or Z28.

Mike that is too funny. "SS" I was watching the AHC/Military Channel a few nights ago and finally heard the name SS stood for. I can't pronounce it.
