Re: 89 200 ----to a----> 200 20v worth it?

Jason, the 200 20v is a more powerful car, with some nice upgrades, but it
will be as expensive to keep up as your current car.  In several areas, it
will be more due to the complex nature of the 20v.  The key here is to find
a car that is low miles, or very well maintained.
