Question Which spoiler do you prefer?

So far only 2 GM spoliers are offered in addition to the RS/SS spoiler. Would anyone like to see a 69' style spoiler offered?

The top one looks like a modern version of the 69 style, I think it will look great. The botton one looks like someone fell asleep at the mouse and had a photoshop accident. If the hing wing spoiler really looks like that it is Fugly. Can anyone say camaricer?

Yes, a 1st Gen style spoiler would be great! Some may disagree, but the high-wing spoiler is a little too "ricey" for me, and the other blade spoiler (2nd Gen style) just doesn't look right to me (too 70's I guess!). I'll be sticking with the stock SS/RS for now. I'm sure the after-market suppliers will come out with a 1st Gen style soon, if you're willing to go through the trouble and money to get it color-matched. That would be a good suggestion for the 2011 though.

SS/RS Spoiler for me.... IMO the other spoilers take away the look of the camaro.

the same as the Blade spoiler?

I also prefer the stock RS/SS spoiler.

If i was forced to choose out of the ones listed I'd pick the dovetail.

Yes, they are the same (just terminology). $400 from GMPP, then you have to pay to get it painted. And here's a thought...since the blade/dovetail spoiler has a brake light in it, I wonder if there is any pre-existing wiring anywhere to hook up the light, or would you have to run your own wiring to it??? Seems like more trouble than what it's worth.

SS/RS for me.
Looks like the dove tail is a modern version of the '69
needed to add one more option to the list 2010 SS/RS spoiler.

What really ruins the blade (dovetail) spoiler for me is the way it wraps around the side. It just looks too tacked on. The '69 version stops at the edge of the trunk. It would look alot better on the 5th gen if it was like that.

The description on the GMPP website says "Features a Center Integrated Stop Lamp (Not Shown)" Here's the link, click on the DJR Car and then click on the dovetail spoiler under the list of available accessories.

I think I really prefer the small stock spoiler. The high-wing is just too much for me. If I had to pick on the others, I would like to see something like the '69 version.
