    Question

    Can someone tell me the difference between a '70 Camaro and a '70 Split-bumper? They are both 70's, aren't they? Mine is a split-bumper.

    not around here.........to be honest, all you have to do is buy them, put them on your car, and it's a split bumper car.

    Do you have the signal lights below the bumper or to the side of each headlight? if next to the headlights, then you have a car with the RS option, which would give you a true split bumper car :cool:

    There are alot of people that have the Rally Sport bumpers on a standard front end car that call it a split bumper car. The fact is that they didn't come from the factory that way. A true rally sport (or RS) has a few things that are different than the full bumper car. The obvious one is the small bumpers, then there are two round parking lights above the bumpers. The standard front end cars have rectangular shaped parking lights under the bumpers. Also the RE has a different grill, hood latch location and a urethane nose around the grill. The link below explains more and has pics

    EDIT: Took me too long to type, so yeah, what protour said lol

    Split-bumper

    Great!! Thanks for the info. I should have been more specific. It is a 70 Z-28and has the round parking lights next to the headlights. The side lights are on the front corner of the fender, right even with the headlights. It has the 'fish-mouth' nose on it also.

    Again, thanks for the info.

    Ok maybe I should have said RS cars are the ones that came with split bumpers originally then?
