    If you make the spoiler taller it will look like this! :eek:

    have read the 1pc. actually cancels downforce at high speed

    Either are fine on the early cars. The reason why Chevrolet went to the three piece rear spoiler was to get more rear downforce in racing,

    The one thing about the 3 piece that I'm not a fan of is how large the two outside pieces are and how they cover a large part of the rear quarter panel. I was at Good Guys in early October and saw a black Gen 2 with a 3 piece spoiler. The end piece on this spoiler was different from any I've seen, see pic below.

    Can someone shed some light on this spoiler?

    BTW...if the owner that belongs to this Camaro is on this site, you have a very clean, good looking car!

    Michael,

    I agree, that is a later year spoiler on an earlier body style. My question, most 3 piece spoilers I've seen, the end piece wraps around the rear quarter of the car. The one in the pic, the end piece is a lot smaller. My question is this a different manufacturers style or a from a different car, maybe the trans am or something.

    Thanks...

    Definitely a fan of the short spoiler. I think it gives it a more bullish look.
