Damn, I thought the Cordoba kept its round headlights for like, forever. I was right about the year range, however.

Is the cop car in the background being used to stop traffic during filming?

1979 only due to absence of line under grille.

I see that you are trying to use information posted here:
TWX wrote The grille says '78. '79 didn't have that smaller horizontal line under the grille frame.

/vehicle.php?id=113243

But you are reading the info incorrectly. The line he is referring to is under the top of the grill. The difference between the 1978 (eggcrate style grill with both horizontal and vertical chrome dividers) and 1979 (waterfall style grill with just vertical dividers), is that the horizontal chrome divider at the top of the grill is missing on the 1979 models.

I made a comparison, and you can see the top horizontal line is missing:

This particular model has the eggcrate style grill of the 1978.
