Not really...  89 was the big change (interior, door handles), mid 89 for
the K24 change. 90 made the airbag standard. An early 89 is the hot ticket
IMHO - Upgraded interior, oil pressure guage, flush door handles, K-26, no
airbag so it's easy to fit a MOMO. No high premium like a 91, old enough the
price is dropping ...
