Re: 86 CGT Digi-Dash??? What's up?

Commemorative Edition CGT's were sold in 1986.  They were either white or
Anthracite Black Metallic.  They had red leather interiors, very dark
grey carpet, body color rear spoilers, and digital dashes.  The digital
dash was made optional for 1987.  The body color rear spoiler stayed. 
The mirrors and side window surrounds also became body color.  Mid year
1987, the 2.3 litre engine and rear disc brakes were added.
