My first car was a 77. I think the big bumpers look fine. I'm glad you're keeping them.
I'll add a PS to my earlier post. I still say that it's your car, do what makes you happy..... BUT.....
I not only like the big bumper cars, I prefer them to the other 2nd gens. Just my taste. I like the slant of the nose and the wide rear window. My car isn't pic worthy yet, but here's a pic of a BB that belongs to a member here (chuck706). Just an example of one of the great looking BB cars that I've seen here at NastyZ! Not a lot of people restoring these, but the ones that are restored look fabulous
^^^very nice example of a big bumpered car.
Here's my old one: (Converted from '81 to '70)
I really like my 75' and everything about it I've just been obsessed with this red 71' SS and that I see almost every year at the Morro Bay Car Show and I was thinking about making mine look like it. But the more I look at my car I see a sort of see a split bumper lay out with a full bumper and I can live with that. I'm working and saving up as I can to paint my 75' by the end of summer I've got my fingers crossed. I'm thinking about painting it #75 Cranberry Red w/ Tuxedo black 70-73 Z28 panel stripes, or 11U Light Pewter Metallic from a 4th gen with the black panel stripes.
What are the mods to the bumpers?
Do you know how many people would want a big bumper front end as clean as that? The front end on that car looks great to me.
i agree with alot of these guys in that that looks very clean. I realy dig the color as well.
About the bumper mods (As i remember):
-Narrowing it so that it tucks to the fenders real nice
-remounting it, bringing it closer to the car.
-Painting it the body color (Or just painting it)
-Shaving off the black plastic strip.
Personally i advocate leaving it nice and shiny and cuttin' it in everyway.
This goes for the front and back bumper.
Now i wouldn't be suprised if i missed something, but i think i gave it a good shot for a '73 owner. lol.
