    I was going through my many coffee cans of original GM bolts and found about 25 12 point bolts about 1in. long?
    My question is when did they start using them?
    I have seen them on some hood latches.

    The car I saw them on was a 73 also. Thing is I never owned a 73 so I am trying to figure out where I got them from. I did have two 72's, a 71 and a 70.

    i saw a body bolt kit for a 70-73 camaro which included those bolts. that being said, it doesn't mean its correct. I'm sure a member with a 70 can confirm...
