    this should only apply to 1970 and 1971 models because after 1971 the low
    profile was not available anymore... my choice is the 1 piece low profile
    thanks axle

    Definately the low rise on the very early 2nd gens.

    I like both but the 3 piece with the front spoiler is the best look. The front spoiler doesn't look right with the low one piece. My 70 SS396 has the one piece and it looks good.

    I like both. My car came with the tall spoiler and had it for years. But, I prefer the short spoiler.

    My opinion(s)....

    Whichever one you look at the longest is the one you'll like the least....

    I like the tall spoiler with either the flat hood or the cowl hood...

    I like the low spoiler with the cowl hood... it looks a little boring to me with a flat hood...unless the car is an RS which adds a little more interest and has that long and lean look. I have a low spoiler with flat hood now; I'm leaning towards reinstalling my cowl hood (but I'm not crazy about the shape of the cowls on the metal cowl hoods). I'm also thinking about larger wheels in the rear.

    I like no spoiler if the rear has larger rims/wheels on the rear... and the car is a little jacked up... more of a drag look... I've seen some beautiful clean cars without spoilers but all jacked up a little in the rear.. stance is everything. I saw a grey car a while back with an L88 hood, no spoiler, and custom billet tail lights... it's was awesome.

    And then there's Jesse Greening's custom spoiler which is a shorter three piece...

    Whatever spoiler is used has to fit perfectly, otherwise, I don't like 'em. The tall spoilers are much harder to fit up and align well if they weren't on the car originally.... the end pieces don't fit the quarter panels well. Fit up needs to be done while you're doing the body work before painting. Workmanship is also everything.

    Shorty, because most people have the tall spoiler.

    I prefer the short spoiler. To me, it blends better with the body style of the 70-73 Camaro.
