I had a 73 Camaro and it had a split front bumper, but the 73s I look at have a solid front bumper.   So what did I have?

I believe the second generation Camaro's with split bumpers were called rally sports.

Bet it looked like this 73 RS with those split bumpers --the nose was also "bump resistant":

And that picture is Camarosource's example of a 73 RS Z28...

The Rally Sport package could be ordered with the Z28 (and the sport coupe and the Type LT [Luxury Touring] --there was no SS) in 73.  Technically, those split bumpers were called bumperettes and the nose was resilient frame.  In 73 the Z could get A/C as an option, but the 350-4 V8 only mustered 245 hp.
