    I agree with the GM designers myself. Foose did a similar thing to Earnhardt's ride and it sure helps proportionally but...

    .

    Maybe because I've had 3 2nd gen, 70 1/2 RS, 72, 72, both standard cars,
    but I have always said the split bumpers look awful without the round turn signals!!!!!!!

    I like the look of all mine, and actually was trying to sell the RS when I got transferred to Asia and a bunch of guys talked me out of it.
    They said trust us, the RS will be much more popular & desirable in the future.
    I didn't like the look of the big hole, but it definitely grew on me since 1982!!!!!!!!
    So I sold the '72 with the Starsky paint job, and the RS is still in the shop 30 something years later.

    Should I put a SS emblem on the grille or not ??? , was looking at a very old pic of my Camaro from 15 years ago and I liked that look . Don't want to spend the $30 on it and then remove it because I changed my mind

    So should I put it back on or not ??? , I might even change the grille to a black 70-71 style

    Lookin good. Hard to beat that red paint. To each is their own. I like both split bumper & full bumper. Dont like the split bumpers with the standard park lights tho
