Question

I know this has probably been ask before but which comes first SS RS or RS SS I have always heard the SS came first and the RS was a ordered unless it was a just a RS car. First generation is always been my first choice. If drugs was any more addicting than these 60's Bowtie cars I sure do not need any of that stuff. Even though I have had first gen. cars since I was young I do like the 66 & 67 Nova's (GREAT WEB SITE)
67 SS RS 350
68 Z/28
67 RS Conv.
67 Conv. 396
69 Coupe X44
68 Coupe factory A/C
66 Nova SS L-79
66 Nova SS
66 Nova Wagon (For Sale)
3-67 Nova Wagons (For Sale)
66 Chevelle Conv. (For Sale)

The base car is a Camaro, we all agree on that... From there it could become a Z/28 or an SS performance model. (can't mix the 2 except 4th gen '96) Let's stay with gen1! You can get the RS option on any of the three. So you get an RS optioned Camaro, an RS optioned Z/28 and an RS optioned SS. (The RS option is a visual enhancement) So that leaves us with:

RS Camaro
RS Z/28
RS SS

That's the DjD definative but I assure you someone with SSRS on a vanity plate will provide just as good an explanation to counter mine...

I refer you to the 1968 Camaro sales brochure Cover Car: The Cover is titled / labeled as; "COVER: CAMARO SS SPORT COUPE WITH RALLEY SPORT EQUIPMENT AND VINYL TOP YOU CAN ORDER".

Fun cars any way you say it.!
Sounds like My Vote is for SS/RS

Actaully, the "correct" discription is SS/RS. The SS option took presidence over the RS option on a SS/RS car.
