You were lucky. I have had four as well, two new '78's, a used '79, and a new '84.
Both '78's I had to have repainted because of all the scratches including one I picked up at a dealer across the street from the factory. Great quality control and great workmanship by UAW members. With the '84, both power windows, digital display and a/c went out within the first 2000 miles. Last American car I ever owned.
