Well put Kurt. Sometimes our inherent human nature flaws rear their ugly heads when we don't get the answers we want to hear........  This is undoubtedly the most informational site addressing the 1st Gens to be found anywhere. You guys please keep up the good work.

The OP (desmreed) stated in one of his earlier post:
"Again I bought this car 36 years ago for $1000 when it wasn't that special, just an older car."

He asked for our opinions and advice, and we gave it to him.. He'd be well served to pay attention before he invests additional time/$ into that car.  As it turns out, there IS something *special* about that car, but probably not in a 'good special' way.  He should have figured this out for himself, but in case he hasn't.. I'll say it more bluntly here.   He 'probably' purchased a stolen car in 1980 which had been disguised by altering the VIN/cowltag/engine, potentially years before he purchased it.   The original person who did that should show up in the record of prior owners.

The OP has deleted all the above photos from his Photobucket account.

For future reference, the two VINs involved with this car are 123377N100143 & 124377N150322
