LOL, I had to Google to get the Airflow (I think that I am right). We try to use it as a last resort. I waited a while for others before I did.

That is why the photo questions are the best because you can't google it very easy.

It's nice if you know the answer, but Google away otherwise.

Thanks Dan,

Ok boys, the Chevy Camaro had hideaway headlamps on their RS models for a few years.
1. What years?
2. What powered the "doors" on these hideaways?

In 1984 with the Dodge Omni modified by Carroll Shelby, upon his test drive he said somthing which became the abreviations for the Shelby model. What were were the abreviations/ what did he say?

Ok, no one is grabbing this so I went to Google, that is funnier than heck!

"Goes like Hell" GLH. Then they added an S for Shelby.

Vega

Brian, There were different ways the Buick V6 was used. Also two different V6's.
These were all rebadged Vegas-

1978 Chevrolet Monza S, optional engines were 196ci and 231ci Buick V6
1978-79 Chevrolet Monza Wagon, same options.
1978-79 Pontiac Sunbird Safari Wagon, same options.

There was the Skyhawk, but it used the Buick 231 for more than just one year. Something like '74-'79. Or '80? Always thought of it more like a Monza than Vega, but I suppose they were all H-cars.

You got it Nolan, and it's specifically the 78-79 Monza Wagon that I was looking for as that WAS a Vega body.

It's your floor.

1974

Thank you Brian. The year was 1974. It came in white exterior. It had hideous colored stripes in the seats and on the door interiors. It had shag carpeting in parts of the interior. It had a sunroof. It had the interior stripe pattern on the exterior of the car also. What is it?
