My driveway is as steep as they come. There's scrape marks from delivery trucks scraping
the street as they pull in. My stock SS is just fine going up and down.
I think it would be hard to get a good photo of the angle.

Always TURN INTO a grade like that - never straight into it. That's the only way to ensure you won't scrape the nose - and even then... That said, your driveway doesn't look very steep. Might not have a problem at all driving straight into it.

These cars have had this problem for what - 30 or so years now?

My driveway here is roughly a 45 or better...to the point where I test drove an SS with gfx before ordering to be sure I'd be alright. It made it up just fine, scraped just a little backing it down but that was more my fault. Yours shouldn't have any problem

There looks to be less of an incline from the lefthand side- pull in turning left and there's no way you'll scrape.

BTW- another 1LE owner relates the lower edge of the front splitter is exactly 7" up off the road. No worries .
