Thanks!! Just in time! I was on another test drive and got your message
relayed on the cell phone. I abandoned that '91 200TQ--left it deep in a
ravine in the middle of nowhere  (outside of Boulder CO, I think). I didn't
even take the keys--just ran back to the highway and hitchiked home.  The
headlights wouldn't even stay on after I turned off the ignition!! And it
doesn't even seem to have a battery! It also lacks the proper even number
of cylinders like God meant engines to have. I have newfound respect for my
'82 Chevy Citation.

And to add insult to possible injury, the dealer wants MY Citation and
another $4000 for the deal! ;-)

But seriously folks, this 200TQ just spent an overnight at my house. Could
be a serious relationship developing here.

BTW, I wonder if any lister (other than DeWitt) might be acquainted with
this '91 200TQ?
