Thanks for the correction on the 4KQ. I recall the Calloway CGT.
Red type 85 (don't recall if it was an 85 or 86), some black centered
mesh style rims, suspension work etc. My mistake on the drivetrain
on the 4KQ. Still thought that was one sweet ride. Too bad it's gone,
but I'm glad it still "lives" on in it's transplant-ee.
