I dunno; it looks more like that classic GM problem of bad primer, which lets the finish coat go after a few years, and the paint starts falling off in sheets. (You see it a lot on blue or silver Corsicas.) If this is the only place where it'* happening, though, count yer blessin'*.

I guess by me having a white car, I don't have to worry about that.

Wha!?!?!

The 96-99 spoilers have a 'gap' underneath at the bottom rear. This leaves the 'front to rear' depth of the spoiler shorter. Less trunk lid contact surface area, and 2 fewer fasteners, too, I believe.
