For the model years '67 through '69, the RS package consisted of hideaway headlights and "RS" (Rally Sport) badging. It could be had on any version of Camaro, including the SS (gauges, Super Sport badging, SS wheels, or wheel covers, depending on the year, bucket seats- though all Camaros had bucket seats- you could get an SS in most models) and the Z/28. For '70 on up, hideaway headlights were deleted, but the RS carried the split grill and RS badging.

Both RS and SS could be had with any engine/transmission combination. You could also buy an RS/SS, as the parts were really just trim, that didn't conflict.

I've had ignorant know-it-alls walk up to my Buick and tell me it had the Oldsmobile "Rocket 350" in it. I got a kick out of explaining that, no, I had removed the Buick engine and it now was powered by a Chevrolet engine. Given the ubiquity of the Chevrolet engine, people around that person could easily see that that was true, and not accept that self-styled expert's disclaimers that I was wrong. Laugh out load

RE: Some astonishing ignorance at display
I was shopping on day with my mom and she looked horrified I wanted to get some white jeans. To this day I am still wondering 'Why is it so horrible I wanted to wear white jeans?' Every other color was fine, except white?

IDK then again she thinks the USA has a national langue and it's English. And that the white people didn't do anything to hurt the Natives. Ignorant as ever.

"Governments don't want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking That is against their interests.
They want obedient workers people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork And just dumb enough to passively accept it."

Thanks for those tips. And yet Shannon's are supposed to thoroughly check for the authenticity and provenance of all the antique and/or vintage cars they auction. Obviously, they don't have a Citroën specialist in-house LOL.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
