	Never seen an example of the Graphite Comm. Design CGT. I would very
much like to see one and if there is a lister owning one in the North
Shore area of MA, e-mail me. I will reserve judgement until I do see
one, but think the red/black combination would be too weird of a match
and do not like Coupes painted in black anyway. As a matter of fact, in
my opinion Coupes do not look that great in any other color than Alpine

	Read my rebuttal again, you'll see that at first I also thought it was
too much.

	Actually, I'm glad you ask, because I was going to answer but not in a
positive manner. That combo to me seems more like a Cadillac than the
Alpine White Comm. Design, but I cannot imagine anyone but Sonny Crocket
driving it thru the streets of Miami. Go figure?!?  ;)
