That 1980 Camaro front end looks just like the S3.

So where does 200 extra pounds come from between 73 and 74? Do you have the text for 75,76,77?

I think that's correct. My 73 chevelle frame is different than 74-77. My rear bumper has brackets that bolt to the SIDE of the frame in the rear. The 74-77 rear bumpers have threads (bolts) sticking out of the rear side of the bumper and bolts straight onto the bumper mounts.

So there is a weight saving there but I dont see that much.

That's cool, Chris.

Noticed, too, that the '74 and '75 are 3" longer than the '73.

Does the book also show the tail ends, too?
