And one last one for Weave's tummy!
OK Tony, this one AD is borderling on the verge of "Pimp mobile". When they start putting those cabriolet style "S" emblems on the side of the car that has "Pimp mobile" written all over it to me. I will be helping the Weave fill up that bucket if I start seeing fuzzy steering wheel covers and imatation Tiger skin seat covers and dash pads too.
Any guess to what's up with that tighty little ASS Panel!!???
The rack and the tail pan have some unsanctioned Mod Effects!!!
Weave will love it!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I dont feel good!!!!
I guess you could say we going from Mod Tops to Mod Bottoms. I can live with the luggage rack.
GM had the luggage rack accessory which I think looks good on some Camaro's, but not all of them. A highly optioned Camaro convrertible would look good with luggage racks IMO. Gives it that long distance travel look or ready for a picnic look to it.
Now, about that MOD Bottom look! I would need a couple of doobies for that one.
Although, if the Camaro had the top done and all the paint graphics to match it like your earlier convertible picture Tony. Hell, why not then! Got to keep the theme going.
I'm thinking if this thread keeps up, we may all need to burn one!
Weave then will have the munchies!
After all the hurling buddy, you need to eat something...anything...everything!

You guys are too much. I am LMAO in hysterics here. Who needs to burn one with you guys around. My gut hurts from laughing so hard.
I know that there was a GM document possibly one of the following , GM Service Bulletin , GM sales brochure or something in one of the GM Communication boxes that advised the GM dealer to get into selling a painted on vinyl roof to buyers. I think from memory there was a pic of a real vinyl top car sitting next to a painted on vinyl top. Anyone got it or know of it? .. Crazy **** man. Let me know when the doobies are going around
These are all wierd tops.
This must be the (PAISLEY) edition, Eh ?
Tony, was this GM doing this stuff ?
Or maybe to many folks were making brownies.
As for the luggage racks, They are pretty cool. But I just don't see those around at all. Does someone make repops?
I had forgot about the painted on "vinyl tops". What a nightmare they were. Two pieces of tape to simulate the seams, a couple of cheap moldings riveted on, and what looked like black undercoating sprayed on the top. Looked ok from 10 feet the first few days/weeks, but you really couldn't clean it off very well. It dried out and really looked hideous, and then might start to peel. Those spray on tops were an old used car lot trick. I remember after Geoff prompted this, that there were shops here painting on the "vinyl" tops for as low as $19, including the moldings. How would you have liked to had a $19 job like this put on your new 67 RS SS coupe .... Steve
I have a very faded memory of this....my first impression on reading this was I remember at one point the concept of a TWO TONE cars was a hot ticket!
69's were available has two ton cars...
I remember seeing some 7's or 8's running around like this..... I guess this is what it was!
I have most of the Communication Boxes for 1967, I'll check them out when I get a chance.
Tom M. and I talked about addressing this at one time or the other.
I believe Chevrolet had at least two designs that were available for the 1967 Camaro.
The Factory design and the Dealer one.
The Factory one was also the same one used on the 67 Vette and Firebird, if I remember right. This is also one of the reasons that there was a shortage of this model. I believe the easiest way to tell the difference but not the only one, is to see if the mounting legs have "FEET" on them.
The dealer one is the same model that could be found on a number of different GM models and this design did not have "THE FEET" plus it also had extra openings for additional mounts.
The end tip design was also different but I can't remember exactly what it was....maybe it didn't have the Black end caps on the outside bars seems to come to mind.
Then, of course, there is these tie in accessory Catalog parts that have also been found that I posted above.
These are observations so please chime in guys.... the last time I really looked into the topic was when I noticed I had a different rack on a 67 rag that I had bought than the last time I had come across a car with a rack.
Here is the shot of the rack I saved that I believe is the Factory Rack.
I completely agree with Tom D's earlier comment that he loves the look of a 67 loaded rag top with a rag!
67 freaks seem to think and love the same things!
Da Feet or da foot!!
Ilove the original '67 background that you use to shoot your rack on. I remember searching Ebay for a rear rack for my collection, but they were runnng way too high for me. There a nice original one that sold on Ebay about a year ago for $500. It had tie downs for the ski's too. That was too much for my budget then. I would love to find an original one not all rusted out. There was a young gal in my home town that drove around a really bad rusty '68 Camaro with an original rack on the trunk. I met her one day at the AM/PM and asked very nicely if she would wanted to sell it with the trunk lid and in return I would give her a a new replacement trunk lid and install it for her. She said "Sorry, but it came on the car". I guess that meant she wasn't going to sell it.
She could of made $200 plus a replacement trunk lid for her Camaro, INSTALLED!
It will show up one day in the Penny Pincher magazine for sale I am sure.
