Thanks to all of you who wrote back to me about my impending purchase.
 I've posted a quick ad in my area (Portland, OR) looking for a '91, but
I'll likely be buying the '90 as my chances of finding a '91 seem quite
small.  Test drove it and had a blast, and I'm looking forward to
learning about it's internals and doing some tweaking on it.

Thanks again!
