My friend had two '84 CGT's, and he "upgraded" to post-'84 DOT lights
the appearance.  What a waste of money, eh?

That's nothing compared to him swapping the motor from his old one to
new one for like a half a horsepower, because the second one had a
bit old CIS system.

Ah, if he only knew of the list.  He could've been exposed to and had
eurolites and a turbo motor for his troubles and $$.

He had a Zermatt Silver '84, which was replaced with a red (dunno which) 
'84 after he rolled the first one off a hill.  Beautiful color on that
