I wish I did.....always wanted a Midnight Blue '68 GTO.
1970 Split Bumper Camaro. When I was a teenager, my best friend's older brother had one, and I instantly fell in love with the car. not to mention the split bumper was a very limited run. 1 year only I believe.
Shelbyblues is correct. The Rally Sport (RS) option for all four years included the split bumper and round turn signals. I never liked the non-RS version, it looked too much like a Vega to me.The first gen Camaro's 67, 68 & 69 when equipped with the RS package had hideaway headlights. When the bodystyle change was made in 1970 the split bumper is what defined the RS package instead of hideaway headlights. If I'm not mistaken the split bumper RS package was available until 1973. In 1974 front and rear end changes were made again with more euro style safety bumpers etc...
Your pic would be a 1970 RS Z/28 or a clone of one.
I had a 69 RS Z/28 silver with black stripes back in the mid 70's. I sold it when I got married to my first wife... if I only knew then what I know now.
That would be what is defined as a resto-mod. Very common these days.Thanks to All who have participated or just read.
How practical would it be to put modern guts in a 72 Chevelle and where would i even begin to find someone reputable?
I want it as an every day vehicle like my Challenger, not a show car.
Thanks so very much, Shelbyblues. I know enough about Les Pauls to be dangerous, but I don't even know where to begin. Now, knowing the term "restomod" is a beginning.That would be what is defined as a resto-mod. Very common these days.
If you aren't a purist collector type it would be the way to go if you have the funds.
The best of both worlds really.
If I decided I wanted another "play toy" type car and wanted the old school body style that would be what I would want. I have lost my desire to wrench...gett'n to old and I bruise to easily...
Restomod in my mind means restored and modified with modern components.Thanks so very much, Shelbyblues. I know enough about Les Pauls to be dangerous, but I don't even know where to begin. Now, knowing the term "restomod" is a beginning.
The "old school body style" is why I dig my Challenger so so much.
