MOST V8s in 90 and 91 models with 5 speeds came with sport seats.  The rare
late model 90 (auto) car can have lounge chair seats.  Of the 5 or 6
examples 91 5 speeds I have seen, only one had the lounge-chair seats.  I
also read that there were 54 of them imported, not 77.  But whatever, it's
not a large number.

It's your left foot, Bart!  If I twist mine out and enjoy it, it's 15 mpg
zone.  Driving smoothly will actually deliver 20 mpg or slightly more. The
PO was honest, but clearly not agressive.
