Do you own the 81 currently? They are sweet cars. You could always swap the nose and tail and make it a 77-78, or any other year at that. I really like the split light front on the 79-81 though, i think it has a nice sleek look.

Mine's not a t/a either but i bought the fenders, spoiler, wheel flares and all the other parts to make it look like one. Then once i do the ls swap no one will ever know it wasn't a t/a anyway, plus it will be faster.
It doesn't bother me at all that it's not a real one.
