I find it very interesting that a 1993 90 FWD sells for about the same price
as a good condition Type 85 4000q or Coupe GT (regardless of year). Much
older car with much less "going for it" selling for the same price as a
newer luxury sedan? Seem off to me, but I have no clue what the newer cars
really sell for.
1987 CGT 2.3
