Perhaps I should have asked this question a long time ago...Which came first, the RS or the SS? In other words, is the correct label RS/SS or SS/RS? Or...does it really matter?

I know what your thinking...get a life why don't you. Grin

Thanks

When I'm talking to others, I always refer to the major option first. Example Z/28-rs or SS/rs. When ordered new, the SS & the Z were first on the order information. That's just me Smiley

Makes perfect sense to me.

Does anyone know if there was a nomenclature from the factory for this combo?

Since the Z and SS were performance packages and RS was a mere trim package I would say the Z and SS would be dominate since those badges were used if the car had the RS trim package.

The statements above make sense. Additionally, a Camaro restoration book informed me that the correct way to say it is SS/RS.

This has my vote and makes the most sense.

Super sports started in the early sixty's, carried over to F-bodys. Dinosaurs started before chickens.

Do you have a Rally Sport equipped Super Sport (RS/SS) or a Super Sport equipped Rally Sport.  Always has and always will be an RS/SS in my book.  Plus it flows better.

YES...someone who finally knows the alphabet! Grin Just kidding guys...

You'd have to admit though, there is a great deal of logic behind what Mark says. I also agree that it flows much easier.

It's even more obvious for RS/Z versus the awkward Z/RS.

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.
