Exactly.. and the only thing they were intended to 'set the pace' for.. was SALES..
ie.. nothing special about the cars except for the options that were discounted to zero.... the factories have always done similar things (and still do) to spur orders when sales are slow...
I realize that it was nothing special I was just thinking since my car has most of those options it may have been.
Now I am also curious why this (nothing special) car ended up at the zone office.
With the the options available at the time, why go for a 6-banger vert?
