Well I have to agree with all that I have read, but here is my view. I have built many a Clone SS, Z-28 and even RS. If you take an LA built car that has no X-code then put in the correct parts ie:, casting numbers, dates, fuel lines,12 bolt, 2 piece brake lines, and the rest of the correct SS pieces down to the welded on rear frame dual exhaust mount, then what you have is a SS that did not come off the assembly line. Yet in every way it is technically correct with the exception of numbers matching vin. Is this car now any different than a "Real" SS that is being sold with out numbers matching? Don't get me wrong I NEVER state that my "Clones" are real, but I dare most to tell me they can tell different.If the car is nice and you like it, and the price is in your budget, then you are most likely to buy it whether it is real or not. right? Just my view.
