ya its hard to tell from that pic because nothing really matches up.

Here's what the grill on my '80 looks like (obviously the stock old school logo has been replaced with the new one, but other than that it is stock I believe.)

after comparing them it looks like the red one bakelight posted is a 79 or 80 with a newer chrome grill. The headlights look stock... just the grill doesn't match up.

Yup, take a look at the VIN plate on the firewall or driverside door pillar. You can also figure out pretty much every option that it came from the factory with

then I think you have bigger issues to sort out than simply discovering the year...How long to cook an egg on it? (or does the egg just vapourize on contact?)

I already have an 83 with papers that I bought. I did a check with ICBC on this 81's VIN, it's not stolen and I resent that you would think I bought stolen shit.[16]
