No I remember that thread now..  I forgot there were some cars that had both holes early on.  I need to add that info to the spreadsheet. Thanks for that and sorry for the memory loss..

Need to correct what I posted above, seems the emblem holes were drilled through a fixture, rather than punched.

John stated there was only one deck lid supplied to the plants... that is until the Firebirds started being phased into Norwood from Lordstown with Trans Am spoilers not covering the lower emblem hole sets- all these had influence on the phase out of pre-punched deck lids.

Pic is not that good and I can not verify for sure that this is original.  But it is on my 09C 68 Camaro.

Thanks Bryon.  I assume it has the tabs under the lip?  Can you make out the stamp code also?

Darrell, I can't remember on the tabs and that is the only pic I have right now.  

I looked for the date code, but could not see one. There is quite a bit of paint on it, so I will need to look closer next time. It's still in winter storage.

This is a picture from an 03E NOR X77 survivor, GM of Canada-documented car that has a production date of April 7, 1969; I noted it because the rear spoiler nuts are of the acorn style:

What is 'winter storage'??  does that mean it's stored in a snow bank or something???  :) ;D

I'm only teasing you northern folks of course...  :)

Gary, unfortunately up here I can only enjoy the car from about April to September.  

But it was 88 degrees here yesterday.   :)

If you run across any Rally Green 69 Novas down your way, let me know.  Would prefer it to be a big block car, but any V8 in that color would be fine.

If I come across a nice Nova of that vintage (any color), and it's priced in my budget, I'm going to buy it.. :)   
If it's out of my budget, I'll give you a buzz.. :)

OK, I have a few more pics.  Can't guarantee exactly what these were from originally, but will make an attempt.

First, I think this is from a 68 Frost Green big block. Wrecked in the 70s.  Date stamped in center at normal location is T23.

Second set.  I think this is from a 69. Might have been original black paint. Now mostly in primer.

Date stamped in center at normal location is 16.

That second set of pics is the exactly the types of lids I need.  Lids with the T/A holes and the tabs vs lids without the tabs and T/A holes. Right now it looks like the Feb - Mar time frame of 69 when this change occurred..

Darrell, the second one has a date code of 16th week.

Do you know the stamp date?

Thats strange.  That would put it in the April - May timeframe and none of the lids I have have the tabs & T/A holes..  Hmmmm
