<VV> Hood and trunk lettering

No holes anywhere on mine. Not even any holes in the brace piece (in 
the front of the front trunk) to access the holes. I'm beginning to 
wonder whether somebody has swapped the VIN? It has no damper on the 
engine, but it has the transverse spring on the back. It has the later 
front 'grille' emblem & side emblems, so who knows?
Frankly I don't much care - it's a Nevada or Arizona car and, apart 
from a couple of pin holes in the front floor pans, there is no rust on 
it anywhere, and that is what counts.
