Not positive but I'm thinking it's an '82 interstate. My 80 had that same aftermarket steel radiator grill on it when I got it. I swear that thing had to be close to 10lbs.

That's what I originally thought too, but it has 82-83 style engine guards but not the 83 wheels so I guessed 82. Looking closer, the front rotors are the 5 spoke of the 80-81 but don't have the same cut outs plus are vented. That makes my new guess an 80 or 81 with 82 or 83 engine guards and replacement drilled rotors... :?
