My 78 coupe eventually got that 77 grille after I slid off the road during an ice storm. I had those *exact* same hubcaps too. The silly things wouldn't grip the wheel properly and would slip and rotate a bit, and after a while, they'd slice off the valve stems, leaving me stuck on the side of the road swapping on the spare tire. I had to get solid brass valve stems to solve the problem.

I still have on of those hubcaps on my garage wall!

Is that a ding in the half-moon cover over the rear wheel?

That is one of the coolest cars I have ever seen. How much are you selling it for? Not that I have the money though.

Late 70s and early 80s car had big engines but crappy power output. Emission control devices mades v8s less powerful than some v6s.

Still I bet that car rides like a cloud

Very true but I heard that with better flowing heads and a baby cam they can put out good power.
