Didn't they have an optional tire deicer...I thought I read somewhere that they offered a deicer option...A push of a button on the dash set off two bottles of deicer set up in the rear wheelwells...Is this correct and has anyone seen one..Thanks

I have the defroster option in my 67 race car. I wish I had a tissue dispenser instead so I could wipe the tears away when I add up the cost of parts for this thing. LOL

the Liquid tire chain option (RPO V75) was a 1969 only option and out of 243,085 69 Camaro's sold only 188 had the option now that i would say would be hard to find.

Hey someone in my club saw the liquid traction option on a car last weekend.

I guess one of those cars is floating around in the Dallas-Ft Worth area.

I've heard of another one but I think it only came on 69s. The head lamps washing system. Are the nozzles installed on the bumper or on the metal trim underneath the grill on 69s? Oh John, you forgot the Tic Toc Tac, sorry but thats the one I have.

Jeff,(Hawaiian Camaro), Are you sure that the liquid tire chain was only available in 69? I have a 68 that has squirter nozzels sticking thru the rear wheel wells. The guy at the body shop thought they were part of that option. If you have any other info I would appreciate it. Erik
