02E. Was there a 5th week?

Yes!  You can check here:  http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#Calendar

1968 was a leap year too!     :)

Never mind. I missed the 1968 part. :-[

It started out as a question on 1969 manual and ended up in 1968.

Yes.  The rusty staples.

oh and also my original has yellow (not yellowed) pages in the center section.  The repop has all white pages.

cheers

So this is a definitive tell for the 69 manual?  The original has to have yellow pages in the center?  How many pages?

Thanks,
Jerry
