I agree, that SOM # is wrong. And is this for just one production year? It would be cool to see totals for the LS1 years.

All were driven by GM employees and most were disposed of thru the GM auction program. . . which means GM dealers would have bought them for resale to the public.
** A total of 5 Z28 Coupes were built in the 1999 model year in color 63U Sport Gold metallic. While Sport Gold was discontinued near the end of the model run in 1998, a contract had been signed between Chevrolet and Days Inn for a sweepstakes where the final prize was a Sport Gold Z28 Coupe. While the sweepstakes ran in the spring and summer of '98, the contract specified a 1999 Z28. Thus Ste. Therese built 5 1999s for this sweepstakes. Two units were given away, the other three were driven by GM executives and then disposed of through the GM auction system.

I got it from http://www.camaroz28.com/articles/20...rs/index.shtml
If you look at the bottom it says its from GM. I tried to find all the numbers for ls1's but no dice.
This is off topic but I did read in a book that some lucky camaro/birds came out of the factory with an ls6... thats sweet.

Everyone has favorite colors.
Personal opinion.
I love a black car, but would never own one again due to upkeep.
White always looks dirty (probably because it is).
Silver cars seem like "I can't really decide on a color, so just leave it unpainted."
