The only known Lordstown pic's from 78 to 80..

Postby marco_1978_spyder » Tue Nov 05, 2013 12:41 am

Here is a pic I've uncovered in my quest for assembly line pictures from the Monza years 1978 to 1980.

Of course this one is barely visible, it's of an Oldsmobile Firenza actually, as workers put the finishing touches on it.
Its from a copy of an old newspaper black and white, so it's pretty hard to see...

Here it is..

Thanks Jeff, look's familiar! I just took that pic with my digital camera and posted in on my blog.

It's from my chevy friends magazine, and thats the Introduction of the monza Pilot line at St.Therese Quebec. in 1975.

It's from my new blog. chevymonza.blogspot.com... Looks like it's showing up in google searches...

Nice find..
