	I am under the impression that the Commemorative Design series was a
1986, not a 1987, production run. I am sure my Comm. Coupe is an '86, as
are all others, but I am not sure what date the "Celebration in
Engineering and Innovation" was actually honoring. I also am slightly
vague about the history of this 'Commemoration,' so let me know, please!
And is it possible for the 4K C.D.s to be 1987 s? Thanks.
