    There was a dealer in Texas (I think) that did that. Don't know the name of the dealership but they were the only ones to do it.

    And to Mcnord how did you find out that that one specific dealership in Texas put the window engraving on their camaros or other GM cars maybe?

    There was a similar thread in LS1TECH a while ago, it was 5 or 6 pages, several people had done some research & found 2 cars (in differant states) that had the markings & both were traced both to the same dealer. One of the owners contacted the dealer & they confirmed it. I looked & can't find the thread anymore.

    Very old thread but I just came across some more information of the logo etching of Z28 on the windows. Apparently, throughout the Chevrolet Dealerships in Houston, TX there was a guy who would come out and do all the logo etching onto the windows of these cars. After looking through posts on ls1tech there was a member who had contacted one of the dealerships in Texas and they confirmed this. Also they stated that they have not been in contact with the "etcher" for about 10 years and that they had no data on him. I thought this was very interesting, I wonder how many Camaros/Firebirds got etched all together throughout Houston. Cool to know for me because my white z28 has them. I also know now that my car started life in Texas, and eventually found its way to california where Ive had it the past 3-4 years.

    Well I found what I was looking for.

    No idea how I found this, but sometimes the internet is a miracle. I found the guy who did the logo etching on all late 90s F-Bodies that were sold in the Southern Texas Area.

    As far as we know, this was a special offered by the dealerships that he serviced.

    The company is called Etch Houston. Started by a guy named Ronald Brenes I believe. He would go service all the Chevrolet dealerships throughout Houston, Texas to do window etching on all the f-bodies in the late 90s. They are even still in business to this day!!

    So if anyone in the future, has one of these camaros equipped with the engraving on the windows and have questions on how it got there or who put it there, or need a replacement because their original window broke. Look no further I have found em! It was these guys, the real deal right here!

    Etch Houston is the professional Window Tinting, Glass Etching and Digital Graphics specialists for Greater Houston.

    Some time this week if I can get some time, I'm going to give Ronald a call and see what the low down was back then, and wonder how many cars they ended up prepping for the dealer!?

    Did you buy your SS brand new? Was the lo jack dealer installed?
