hah.   Well, they're rare because they didn't import many and manual 
transmission versions are even more rare.   They were pretty 
expensive when new.   It is tight in there with the W8.   I hear some 
sensors you have to pull the engine down to replace them.  Still, 
that wouldn't scare me off of one though.
