Nice A66 conv on eBay but the tag is strange. What is a G35? Seller says side mirror delete? Could you do that? Or is it a fake tag with a typo? And M51????

Wow, I missed that. A 71 color code on a 70! Impressive.

I laughed the first time I saw it, convertible with a sunroof.

It is sad how many people have fake tags made.

The people willing to help others make them by giving out data, the people that want them made & the tag stampers should all be ashamed of themselves.

I'm totally with you on keeping all my data top secret. Like you, I have nothing else going, so it makes me feel important even though it's insignificant.

It is VERY significant when people use other other people's / cars info to help others make fakes.

It is an epidemic in the hobby.

It is sad to see, it is happening all over.

Sad? Oh please, might as well put a tag off a 71 Camaro on the car, it would be as close as that one.

That is one of the few things correct on the tag. All e-bodies have 000 here as this is the interior paint code. E-bodies use full plastic door panels so no paint needed. They get 000 in this part of the tag.

The question is, Did he do it on purpose or is the creator of the tag that uniformed. One thing about it, you can spot this one a mile off. LOL

Cool enough car, but no telling what's real and what's made up on this Frankenstein. Totally butchered fake fender tag makes everything suspect.

And I love his statement: "Car should be able to Show/Win very well at any car show and is restored as fender tag reads."

So by his account, the convertible top should be vinyl, and have the power sunroof within the fabric top... shock

"Delete standard outside mirror"...I don't think so... realcrazy

"White bumblebee stripe"...must be a very pale shade of white, with a heavy blue tint... whistling

Be better off having NO tag than a fake tag.

Nice looking rig though.

Yes.

E-bodies did not have an upper metal door panel area to paint like the As & Bs, it was covered with a full plastic panel.
