..I don't understand where did you get "T W"//it should be a 1(one) or a 5 (five) the 80 is body style
the "A" is the engine type( There is no "A" it must be an "H") the 9(nine)is the year( 1979)..the "Z" was built in Freemont California.and the six(6) ditigal numbers is the sequential numbers(serial#).
..If you can, take a picture of the VIN numbersso we all can see it and decode it for ya.:dontknow:
