Well I can't take all the credit for that one. I had to look up the year. That's why I PM'ed you.
If anyone has a good one put it out there. If not I'll come up with one.

The other pic on another thread is the MKIII zephyr. The MK IV was an ugly car.

Your question bb.

If you see a 68 Z/28 what is the first thing you look for to know if it's a real Z or simply a Camaro with Z emblems? No need to open the hood, nothing, it doesn't even have to be touched, just opening your eyes.

I know there is a difference in the tail lights on the RS model. They had a separate backup light below the bumper and the Base, SS, and Z/28 had the backup light in the tail light assembly. No 1st generation Z28's had an automatic. That's all I know about any outside differences so this will be interesting.

The lights would still fit if it was an RS Z/28 carrying both sub models, very common. So no, the tailights are not what I am after.

Just for clarification didn't the Z 28 have the b/u lights in the reat t/l and all the other models had b/u's in the valance?

Only the RS had backup lights in the valance. Or as Brian pointed out you could order one with both the RS and the Z28 packages and it would have the backup lights in the valance. All others had them in the tail light assembly.

You know what, I didn't think of that. What happens if it has mags?

I was thinking of something else.
