The 323 with a 712 rack is impossible since the production date for the car and rack doesn't match. However, this doesn't mean Rich is providing inaccurate info. Maybe the 323 owner had his original rack replaced by a 712 and then turn it (712) as a core years later.
really that's all you got out of that whole post that needed to be enlarged, quoted and bumped? sorry, poor selection of words on my part. i should have said "i know some things about the 323", it was late. i meant to come off confident, Not arrogant.
but please pay attention, I already said car may have had it RETROFITTED or number mistaken when sent in (core). Retrofitted Definition: to furnish with new or modified parts or equipment not available (or considered necessary) at the time of manufacture

haha, nah i don't need a nickname(not sure what Grand Kodiak even means?), though it may be fun to use it from time to time when we're getting along but don't want to lose the Alex or Alex323Ci that's been getting me in trouble for some ~8 yrs.

Cars get in fender benders with cracked racks all the time and body shops replace them with g-d knows what.
yep we need to be sure of what the racks that he gets come out of. that they are original installed parts from factory or if they have been retrofitted. when we get more confirmation we can get a better picture. think that's all everyone wants at this point.
