    3-1545422164463@2x.jpg I found this picture online and thought I would share it. I think it is a Mecum Auction pic. The lower stripe on the rear end is upside down, I believe, but it's a nice angle. This one's for you, COPO!

    Clone or someone didn't do their homework. Taillight trim should be black.

    Very nice pic. I had a yellow 77. Kick myself every day for selling it.

    Nice! :cool:

    I'm curious...
    I know 77 Z28s had body colored bumpers but...
    Were they painted if the car was silver or left bare brushed aluminum?
    (I can't tell in this pic.)

    The black on the rocker was a designers' effort at making the car look lower than it actually was.

    Yup. Silver cars got painted bumpers too. I just think the rear three-quarter is the best angle view on these cars.

    What about the decals on the fender arches. Is that factory striping? If it is, I never noticed it before.

    I think it is, looks the same as the '78's when GM did the redesign bumpers. I had 2 friends buy '77 Z's both were slow as all heck, but then again it was the late 70's so what did we expect then, performance? LOL.

    In '78, the neighbor across the street bought everyone in his family a new Chevy.
    Wife got a Corvette, 2 sons got '78 Z28s (one dark blue, one dark brown) 1 son got a truck and he got himself a Cadillac.
    His '78 was probably slow but it seemed fast to me at 9 years old.
