Re: 5000 CS Turbo Quattro

In an article which included the NADA retail values for the '86, '87,
and '88 5000CS/200 Turbo Quattros, Eliot Lin attempted to rationalize
why the '88 was perceived to be so much more valuable than the '86/87
by citing the former's torsen differentials and updated interior.  In
fact, however, I've got to believe that the most important difference
between them was a small piece of chrome on the deck lid.  The '86/87
cars said "5000" (hello, Mike Wallace), while the '88s said "200" and
that was enough.  Don't want to end up with one of those haunted ones
now, do we?
