    RS = REAL SLOW, and SC = SH&%TY Car...lol

    Most late model RS' ive seen were two tone. I think they had the interior of the Z28, but with a 305 v8 or smaller. No spoilers other than the rear 3 peice trunk deal.

    The SC was the low model I think. Alot came with 6 cyl's, idiot lights and some had a 3 speed manual.

    When u say they are cheap, do you mean option wise? They're all built with the same quality right?

    The Camaros were all the same quality. The Sport Coupe was the baseline Camaro. If you wanted more options, you added them on top of that. (and you paid more)

    .

    It's been a long long time since this came up. IIRC, I believe the early RS's had better front suspension.
    Thicker sway bars, quicker turning ratio, handling upgrades.
    I would have to find my box of books from the 70's for what was written exactly & what Chevy claimed or advertised??

    The 2nd digit in the vin is Q. Which could be sport coupe, RS. Or a Z28. How do I know what I have?

    All late model Rally Sport Camaros were two tone, they had standard interior unless you wanted to pony up another $300 for custom/deluxe. In 1978 and 1979 you could order a 350 in the Rally Sport, in 1980 (last year for the second generation Rally Sport) you could only get up to the 305.

    The Sport Coupe was the "budget" Camaro, most Sport Coupes I see have maybe 3 or 4 options, example is a 1981 Camaro Sport Coupe we owned.

    However, I have seen quite a few Sport Coupes with a 305 and a 4 speed, or in 1978/1979 a 350/4 speed and limited slip.
