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.

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.

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.

I wonder what the dovetail would look like without the wrap-around ends. Either way, it wouldn't look good enough for $400. I'm sure this is one of the first things the aftermarket will hook us up with.

why didn't you put an option in the poll for stock SS/RS bumper? That's what I would choose..

The dovetail spoiler isn't meant to mimic the '69 spoiler, but rather the second gen/70's style spoiler.



To me it detracts from the car's otherwise very clean appearance and I'd prefer a first gen style variant. Maybe they tried a first gen spoiler and it just didn't look right, who knows... but know matter what angle I look at it something's just 'off' about the dovetail.

For now I like the dovetail, but I would love to see what someone can do to more accurately mimic a 1st-gen style spoiler. The stock SS/RS spoiler just doesn't do it for me, too small. The problem with doing a first gen spoiler are the corners of it. It would have to stretch onto the fenders; no big deal, but the rear of the 2010 isn't flat like the 1969, it's curved. They can adapt the 70's style dovetail to that kind of rear end but it's hard to envision a 1st-gen style. Maybe we'll just have to wait.

I like the functionality of the dovetail spoiler. GMPP has pointed out that it is the most functional.

I like the stock SS/RS Spoiler best of them all. But there's no option for that.

Of the 3 listed above I prefer the High Wing Spoiler.

My favorite camaro spoiler is the one GM is showing with the new camaro SS.

Its understated and sophisticated.

I like the one on the showcar from GM and from the press releases.

I picked the dovetail, but I would like to see what it would look like if they designed a '69 style blade and adapted it to to curve of the new Camaro.

I'd also like to see what the dovetail looks like with out the those wrap-around peices, just for kicks. Either that or see a custom job with the corner peices molded into the body lik eon the 70's cars that it was based.
