Yes, that sounds great.  Some articles will apply to many cars, though, 
so 'tb r/r' would have an article, say, for the 10v engine, they're all 
the same (I think).  Hopefully the title will be exactly as broad as it 
needs to be, like "Euro headlights (type 89)") sort of thing.

Watch the 5000 stuff, since they are "really" 100s and 200s (in the ROW)

Also, models make great categories - put every one that applies on if 
you can.

Yup.  Also, the main, unspecified article could list them all and what 
they apply to.  Of course, categories do that automatically for us if we 
include them carefully.

Anyway, I was just trying to head off trouble before there's too much 
work to fix it.  Right now, we need articles.  Once there are, oh, I 
dunno, 40-50-100 or so, structural enhancements begin to get easier to 
figure out.
