    Just curious now that these models are seeing some serious interest, what are your favorite color and stripe combos? Post pics if you have them. I own White with red stripes but will be selling once it is finished because I want a different combo.
    I would like to see a 1980 code 40 lime green with green stripes that is probally the only one of these models I have never seen.
    I like code (80) with gold stripes

    I think my car is a fairly rare color. Of course, there are those who will say that rare doesn't always mean desirable, but I think it looks good.

    Mine is maroon metallic code 77 with silver cloth/vinyl custom interior (additional cost of $330 back in '81), with silver tri tone stripes. I don't know how to post pics.

    mine will be blakc with red stripes.. if I could have anyone I want I would have the orange / orange stripes.. the green is very color color combo but the I think the interior color would take some getting used to.

    These are the production numbers for all Camaros, not just Z28, but Z28 probably is similar.
    For 1980, the most common color would be Dark Blue, and the least common would be the Light Green.
    For 1981, the most common color would be White and the least common would be Bright Yellow.

    Mine is code 29 dark blue...


    Two other favorite combos of mine are orange or black w/red stripes.

    Owen1980, I too would love to see a photo of a lime green 80 Z28 (I've seen a few pics of 79 Z's in that color but never an 80). When I was just a kid a local guy had an 80 Z in lime green with green stripes and black N90's, I remember thinking it looked sweet at the time! At one point he had it for sale and my dad had the opportunity to buy it for like $900, but passed it up because he already had one Camaro. That was maybe 20 years ago and I haven't laid eyes on another one since, either in person or a photo - a very rare color combo indeed...

    My first car back in 1997 was a dark blue with blue stripes.
    There was a green 79 Z in texas with green stripes and interior original 2+ condition fromt the pics and it went at no reserve for $7,500. I should have bought that. The 1980 lime green I think is the same as 1970,74,76 code 40.

    I've owned two 1980 Z-28s over the years. The first one I bought in 1989 (4-speed) was the same colour as superjudge916's car:



    The second one I had was identical to April's car, this one had an automatic trans.

    My current 1977 Z28 is silver, was an original 4-speed car but now with a TH400 for drag racing.
