New Gold or Old Blue Bow Tie?

Which do you like better, the old 69 Style Blue Bow Tie or today's Modern Gold Bow Tie?

If I had to choose between the 2 I'd opt for the Gold.

But I don't want either. I'd rather it was brushed silver.

for that blue car, gold. Any other color and I might say blue.

Personally, I want blue for mine....although Ellwyn's idea of brushed silver sounds kind cool.

I like the idea of having the older "Blue" bow tie put on or even just using a reflective Blue decal to cover up the Gold, however, I have thought about making it represent the country I love !

I will be changing mine to blue. I have a brand new blue bow tie grille emblem for a 1969 Camaro that looks like it will fit. They accidentally sent it when I ordered one for my Chevelle and did not ask for it back.

About any color Bow tie they have put on Chevys are available through many aftermarlket suppliers, You will just need to find one that fits.
To tell the truth the only 3 colors I can remember from the factory are Blue, Red and Gold.
There are some decal places on E-Bay that makes overlay decals of any color you may want even Carbon fiber, I am sure they will be fairly quick with Camaro overlays.
