I did order and purchase a 2002 coupe, window invoice on that was $50,805.00, won't be doing that again.
Ahh, That's just a couple of those old jars.......

This picture really takes you back. The Nova in the back ground looks like one we took delivery of in 72, it was a hideous green, black vinyl top and black and white hounds tooth interior, I'm not kidding, factory hounds tooth seat insets!

I have never seen a more ugly color combo since this car. Must have been "special" order, never seen one since. We did get a really good deal on the car though, I think under $2500 for a brand new car with a small block. 305 maybe?

Hi Ralph and Pete,
Thanks for the additional pictures. I REALLY enjoy studying them!!!
LOT'S more interesting things to notice……
The three sets of RWL tires that can be seen are ALL Firestone…. did the Firestone and Goodyears get installed in 'batches'?
The fit of the front valance plastic spoilers at their ends!
The fit/alignment of the grill/bumper guards.
The color of the paint on the front grills!
The fit of the rocker trim panel to the shape and 'swoop' on the bottom of the doors!
The curve/arc of the wiper bay grill and door compared to the shape of the hood.
Thanks again!
Regards,
Alan

The placards on the rear view mirrors (C-105, C-106) are almost certainly dealer inventory stock numbers.

Hi Nick,
I thought the SAME thing!
But look at the walls of the buildings behind the cars… they're tilted too!
It's the photo!

Alan

The cards on the rear view mirror were the stock numbers the dealer used. Also the pictures were not laying flat when I copied them that's why the wheels do not look straight.
