As one of the Camaros at Carlisle LEGENDS 2nd Gen Judges, this is a perplexing issue. On the one hand we have the ONLY assy manual showing what is normally seen on all the 1970 Norwood Z-28's. On the other hand we are shown a variety of L.A. painted deviations (from the assy manual). Frank Arone shows us how his L.A. Z has rear stripes closer together than the 9", stripes that end before the rear window moldings, stripes that go all the way to bottom of spoiler and not curve horizontally. Paul Jezek sent me pics (Paul, PLEASE post these in thread for everyone) of a 1970 Car Life magazine showing a new 70 Z with MFG license plates. This car was for media testing and has rear stripes that appear closer together (almost touching Z-28 emblem) than 9" as shown in assy manual (4 1/2" off center line). As a judge I personally would like to see RESTORED 70+ Z-28's follow the assy manual. However if YOU can show Original pics and/or documentation of YOUR restoration showing misc deviations, then I cant see the Carlisle judges deducting points IF stripes are as accurate as YOUR car was as new.... I would sure like to SEE more L.A. Original Paint Z-28's !!!!!!!!!!
