Gold Bowties

Al/Scott,
Is there any way to get rid of the ugly gold bowties and put the original heritage blue bowties on the Z/28? Or at least make it an option/RPO code.

...and I tend to agree with you somewhat on the color, but, since I'm a factory guy...liking to keep things stock as much as possible...I have not seen a color combination yet from anyone that I would take the leap upon to change the original badges. It's up to the individual's liking.

Berger Chevrolet has them on their specialty (numbered) Camaros. They are wanting to put as much heritage as possible into the new Z/28 and the original blue bow ties would be a nice touch IMO.

Not wanting to change after the fact. Do it from the factory.

You can do it, but I would be surprised if GM did it.

The gold bow tie is the brand now so they would have to make that change and that would be tough.

The didn't offer to replace the bowtie with the SS emblem on 5th gens like they did on the first gen, so I HIGHLY doubt they'll do the blue bowties.
