Great color.  Reminds me of my '63 Lark - Champagne Gold

The license plate sort implies that not base but has the RS option which probably didn't require a V8.

I'm not a Camaro guy at all, but it's a nice looking car. The badging makes it a nice sleeper. I love sleepers. I dig the color because it's not the typical obnoxiously bright color that hot rodders tend to pick for their cars. I appreciate a more subdued, mature hue.

Thank you. I am not a Camaro guy either. Wifes build really. Shes the mature one. I prefer a purple roadrunner or lime green hemi 
 

I want to sell and buy a 18-20 foot caddy. But wife likes this more 

after the shakedown - see if anything wrong - then she can drive it 

 

the willwood brakes are getting a nice workout 

Cars too loud. Embarrassingly so. Clutch is way too much of a workout

You're out and about in that weather and the top isn't down?

Beautiful car, btw. Is that a factory color choice or was it pulled from another car?

That's a great looking 1st gen F body. And I too really like the color. The black conv top and rims really set that color off. Nice work all-the-way around.

Sorry never drive with top down, or windows open. Yes I am weird. We have same weather 350 days of the year, pretty boring actually. 

Color is GM Olympic Gold

Everybody has their foibles. No skin off my nose. I'm the opposite, I think I've had the top up on my car maybe 15 times in the last 20 years!

It's a beautiful color.

In reply to iansane :

17 convertibles since 1993 (miata, s2000, t tops etc), never have driven with top down. Not my thing smiley

Very subtle. So nice to see a 69 Camaro without red paint, white stripes, and a rear spoiler. I like it a lot. One of the English teachers at my HS had a black on black 68 convertible i6/3MT with no power options.

Thanks! When decided on it about 1 year ago - I really thought it would be a dud.
