    It has a big wing!

    First off,beautiful car man...Really sweet!And I like the fact that you are planning to return it to stock...

    I am a little curious though...why the 'bump"?Are you selling the car?And I don't understand why the little teases about the history of the vehicle.If you have proof of these interesting history facts of the car,why not let us in on it?

    I do understand that it is your car and you have the power to do as you wish with the info but,if you want privacy concerning the info then why the teases??Why say anything about the private stuff?

    Just curious about this SS.I hope I don't come off as sounding like a jerk or that I am doubting your SS is real.That is NOT my intention at all.I am just VERY curious about what seems to be a very rare and beautiful SS.

    Good luck on your future with this car...

    Oh BTW...with it being a Pilot car.Does it actually have the RPO code on the door for the SS package?I probably missed it if you mentioned it...sorry and thanks!

    I really like it when surprises like this come up...Very cool.

    mystic teal metallic
    1998 Z/28

    Thanks for the compliments on the car.I did the bump because The Z/28 is for sale, + someone wanted to see pics,(The 1st 2 pics are my Z) so it made the thread easier to find if i bumped it to the top.
    It does have the door tag which gives the WU8 (SS) + also the 79U (Mystic Teal Metallic) +79Q (mystic side moldings) Also the other normal tags are there giving the build date 5-15-97, and the 17 wheels, Actually the build date tag just says 5-97, I got the exact build date later.
    The doortag also gives the
    WD1-(pilot car)
    1AA-(Retail Amenity Delete) +
    WDO-(Platform Containment Vehicle) Codes, And all the normal option codes.
    As for the teasers, Its hard to have all this great info + not let some out, At the time I still hadn't got my title yet from the seller,+ he knew only that it was the only mystic SS ever built, + not some of the other things i have since discovered, + didn't want to take the chance of my title being held as ransome for more money,Didn't think he would do it , but i really didn't know him.Also there are 1 or two more reasons why i still havn't spilled it all yet,one is i would like to get the complete picture before i do that, so i can present the whole story of the car at once.Actually when i get all the info on the car i'm going to see if one of the camaro or chevy magazines will want to do an article on it. Also somebody had posted they would be interested
    in hearing about that info , so thats why i let some out at that point,but i guess your right it probably was a tease,it was meant to be more of a little camaro info treat, then a tease. But there is one Really good reason I still havn't disclosed everything on the car yet,And that is..... Sorry i cant tell you. Now thats a Tease! Ahhh, I Crack myself up sometimes.
    e-mail me + i can fill you in a little better.

    O.K. here we go, some info on the first 98 camaro + LS1 cars.A great guy from GM ,just came thru with some big time info on my car, + the first 50 cars built,
    I now know the exact time + date my car was built, painted, assembled etc.
    Too much info to put it all here, but here is some,
    some of the 1st info i had was sketchy but, this is all documented,directly from chevy.
    of the first 35 cars, 29 were auto, 3 were 5spd, 3 were 6spd. 17 were 6 cyl cars,18 were ls1's.
    #'s 1 2 3 4 6 7 9 17 19 26 28 31 33 34 35 37 + 40 were scrapped or dismantled either almost imedietly or years later,at least 5 were scrapped in ohio on 02-01-01 for ? probably done there intended service + not released to the public.
    If you look at the #'s, the 3 cars before mine (#'s 33 34 + 35) + the 1 after mine (#37) were destroyed,mine is # 36 Whew!!! scary!
    Mine was really the only special car among the pilot cars,except for a purple Z/28 vert (#25) w/white top with a light grey int,(ps. that int never made it to production) that was a japan export, shipped to tokyo.along with #27 a white 6cyl hdtp + #32 a silver 6cyl auto hdtp.
    There was also a black Z/28 (#6) with a(flame red interior that was never offered on a 98)but was destroyed.
    #5 a 6cyl hdtp was shipped to germany.
    A bunch of these early cars were used as pic cars for the 98 brochure, (which i have) + its easy to pick them out.
    There is 1 car though that is kind of interesting,+ the 98 production #'s need to be updated because of it,Its not super special but would like to have it + did some searching + found that by 02 it already had 82,000 miles on it,so don't know the condition now.
    A few things about mine:
    "I'ts the First LS1 SS 6spd convertible ever built".(There was a basic red auto SS vert finished before mine, It wasn't destroyed but by 02 already had over 50k mi.on it, don't know the condition today or if its still exists) but for some reason mine was built over the course of 10 days,(Body assembly on 05/05/97 a 10:36 am + completed on the 15th) so mine may have been started 1st, but held up for? maybe a 6 spd trans?Either way mine is still the 1st 6 speed) Actually just discovered that that was most likely the hold up (Remember GM was on strike at this time.) because chevy shows the motor + trans (a Borg Warner) going in at 9:28 0n 5/15/97 + the car was completed at 14:58 on 5/15/97.
    Another hold up was the paint or paint testing/matching,There was 7 days between the paint day(05/07) + the next stage Gen Assembly(05/14).if it was a test mule for the color to be put on the SS, because i think in 98 chevy began assembling the SS instead of slp, + they only went to slp for the exra slp options.Chevy may have been testing it because now the whole car could be sprayed at once verses the 96 + 97 cars that were shipped to slp and the hood + spoiler had to be matched. (Remember this color was not available on the SS before this car was built)(or after) .Still don't know for sure why it was built, The previous reasons are a possibility but i Still think a chevy big wig wanted the top model,All the options,+ a special color + one nobody else could get.
    Also found out mine is the Last pilot car built (I dont think there would have been any pilot cars for 99-02 production would have just run straight thru with only minor changes,thru the years.)
    + That at least the next 14 cars (#'s 37-50) were all bright red cars,+ were only started to be built 3 weeks after mine on 06/05/07 + all 14 + probably more were built that day, + was, it looks like the beginning of reg production 98's, even though 97's were still being built.
    Hope you find this stuff as interesting as i do,I love this kind of stuff,Its maybe a bit more interesting for me because my car is at the heart of it,but its also where all of the 98-02 + up cars began.
    So thought i should share It.
    Thanks Nameless at Chevrolet. You showed me exactly what my car is,+ documented it to a degree, i never dreamed of.Thanks for all that work,Maybe i'll see you at Carlisle + take you for that Top Down cruise in it.
    Anybody with any of the remaining pilot cars (especially if is an LS1 car) please e-mail me at cleganite@webtv.net

    mystic teal metallic
    1998 Z/28

    Took the light bar off today, + registered it,
    saw it for the first time with the top down,I almost had to call my doctor cause i Think i got propecia( or what ever the word is on the commercials for Viagra) for the erection lasting more then 4 hours.
    will trade the light bar + my rear interior panels(plastic panels on the side of the rear seats) which are slighly notched to fit the bar, for some unnotched ones. must be the dark grey int.

    Thanks! Its really the first, I've gotten to mess with it.I bought it in the middle of winter, basically trailered it home Thru a cover over it + parked it for the winter.I registered it today but wont drive it till they clear the roads.But the weather was nice so i've been pulling it out of the garage to dust off the cob webs, ,charge the batt etc.+ am getting psyched for spring, It looks like a totally diff car without the light bar. So much better.
    This particular car is so much more appealing as a stocker.

    Called the guy today + that car on e-bay was originally black,he had it painted blue at maaco, he wanted something different.
    Just so no-one is confused, we are not talking about the ss vert in the pics on this thread.
    But i apreciate you pointing it out, If there is another mystic ss out there i want to know about it.
    And i'm a buyer.
