...Is that a common thing to do? This is a picture from that (nice) Malaga faux-ti on eBay.

The only thing I can think of is that a hole was drilling in the wheel well at some point to mount something, but now its not getting used so the owner plugged it. Without a plug it was through crap in the trunk. That's not typical.

My '75 had the same plugs in the rear shock towers and it had undergone the Rusty Jones rust preventative proccess sometime during the 80's. They drill holes in things like shock towers, inner rockers pannels, etc. and pump some kind of anti-rust compound in there. They cover the holes with the plugs when it's done. However, usually rust forms around the plugs/holes...go figure!

it some point. Little did they know that this area already had factory installed plugs on on the other side of the shock tower support. -J
