another data point


	I saw an '87 5KCSTQ fro sale in Flint yesterday at a used car 
lot.  They wanted $8200.00 fro the car.  It had a black leather interior 
which was torn in a couple places, the cold weather package (although it 
did not have heated seats!?) and it had 89,000 miles on it.  It also had 
the pearl white paint, but the front right fender had been 
replaced, and the paint didn't match at all.

	As a progress report on the OHTSU tires that I bought a few weeks 
ago, I should say that they have been performing very nicely.  
They were a little slick for the first couple of days, but I think 
that it was due to mould release still on the tire.  They stick 
quite well in rain or dry, and are quiet and smooth.  For $67.00 
each, they have to be one of the best deals in tires I have had in 
a while.  I run 38psi front, and 40 psi rear.
	It really is impressive how this car likes to cruise all day long 
at 80-100 mph.
	Is anyone running 17" wheels on the 5000?  I have a suspicion 
that 17" x 7.5" would fit with 215/45-17 tires, particularly if they 
were BFGs which seem to run a little narrow for their size.  Any 
	thanks for all replies.
