I never saw the rear end of the car.  Is the area around the tail lights black, or blue?
Answer from the owner himself below :)

Sorry, I thought I had pics of the back. It is definately black around the tail lights. I'll have some pics of the back real soon.Dwayne




I just threw the old rally's out last year....just heaved them into the trash bin.

You threw OUT T/A parts?? Shame on you :o ;)

I've never had any trim rings come off, but alot of center caps from snowflakes.
And not from driving, just some people shopping at midnight auto.
A few weeks ago, a friend of mine out here, just had his GTA wheels taken off his '83 Firebird!
A day after a guy went up to his front door, and asked if the car or wheels were for sale.
They even screwed up his front fenders, jacking up the car!

That's why I thought it might have been yours.
I wasn't trying to upset you.

I was tired of storing them.  I had them for over 25 years sitting in the garage!!!

Funny that it would come off.  Those stay on pretty well.  I'm glad you've got all of them.

It didn't fall off. I took it off when putting air in the tires.

I think that's the KmH and just doesn't look blue because of the flash. MPH numbers are on the outside of the circle.
