... yup, even though they didn't seem to sell all _that_ well, I never heard
the asking price come down much.  That is why I purchased my '83 used in '86
... for $22K ... YIPES!  :-)  At least I did get a brand new transaxle in
the deal ... 

In hindsight it probably would have been better for me to try to scrape
together the means to get a new one ... oh well!
