I don't doubt your resources either. Also the VIN in ETKA says "M"
meaning 1991 model year. Perhaps a few squeaked by as a 1991 m.y.

Hopefully Kristst can check his VIN and see if it says "M" or "N".

As a side note, my 1990 90q20v is an early 1989 build date, has the "L"
in the VIN, therefore called a "1990" but the owners manual supplied
with the car says 1989 - weird.
