Ummm... that's not an RS option.

Is there any change to the fenders at all to change over to the SS front end?

No RS badge in front?

Ok. just read your the fine print too.

Cool dad! But I guess he thought you weren't too devastated or he would have replaced the engine to go with the SS bumper as well.

You could take it back but personally i would keep it being so rare coming from the factory like this.

It didn't come from the factory like this, it was done after an accident! I think it is less valuable, it will draw questions in the future if you try to sell it and will be obvious it was in an accident.

i dont plan on selling my first hot rod it would be cool to hand down to my son one day or daughter either way selling it has not crossed my mind and i like the unique factor anyway regardless if it was the regular bumper it was still in an accident (idiot drivers) and its not like its a valuable collectors car...i could understand if it was a 69 z28 with a 68 bumper on it (dont know if thats possible to fit just using an example) but its just a v6 that im proud of
