Great catch Dave!!!!!! Having grown up in Denver and working in garages there I can attest to the "HAP" that cars were brought in with. In some cases it was as Dave said a leaner carb or even a different carb in later years as well as dist curve changes on some makes. If a car came in and wasnt running right one of the first things we looked for was where the car was delivered. The worst case were cars delivered to Calif and then the people moved to Colorado. If you want to see the difference try hiking at 10,000 feet. As always Dave you are the eagle eye. Grant
