My latest eBay purchase: DM's 1969 silver COPO Camaro.  I've been looking for a DM Camaro hardtop without a vinyl top for a while.  The shape of the vinyl tops is way off, IMO.  This one seems to be the most accurate of all DM and FM hardtops.

However, as nice as the top is, the front end is another story.  The headlights are too large, and the grill is too tall and boxy. Check out the following pictures of the 1:1, DM, FM, and DM RS/SS.  I think the old tech RS/SS look the best.

Anyway, even though this plain Jane Camaro is not as accurate as it could have been, it still looks good and fits in with the other Camaros in my collection.

Thanks Tony!  It's interesting photographing a silver car.  It looks like it was shot in black and white, but the pictures are color and right off of my iPhone.  Maybe I should have used a colored background.
