73 RS/Type LT

Finished a 100% every nut and bolt restoration. Did it all myself too! Can't wait for some summer to show it off. It will be in the Columbia river camaro club display at this years Portland roadster show.

Beautiful car!!!
One TINY minor little thing, unless you really like it that Caution fan sticker is a FoMOCo item. For some reason it is included in EVERY sticker package ever sold. I ordered air cleaner stickers for my '67 and they sent one of those I didn't even order, have two or three of them. For reference years when Fords used it they had a matching color air cleaner sticker.

Very nice, I agree that the fan sticker should be removed. GM did not use them, I guess GM had buyers smart enough to know not to stick their fingers in the fan...

The 70-73 all only have one headlight, the other light is a parking/turn signal light. The RS package has those. If you see a car with split bumpers and the park/turn signal light below the bumper it is not a real RS. Someone has taken a non RS and removed the full bumper and replaced it with the split bumpers.
First pic is not a real RS, second is a Real RS, third pic is a non RS.

Just because it has split bumpers doesn't make it a fake RS, it just means it's not a RS. Some people don't like RS noses but want the cleanness of little bumpers. Saying that it's fake would be like saying a 5th gen with a ZL1 bumper on it is fake when it makes no claim to being a ZL1 other than having the bumper off the car. If it gets badged, then it's fake.
