They had the slim slot lights at the front (first prelude not to have popups) with two small "Nostril" intake grilles with slats in at the feont next to the lights near the centre of the bonnet, and the large trianglular shaped rear lights. the last ones, the generation 5's have it the other way round, large square sloping front lights, and the rear clus like a slot across the back of the car. I don't like the gen 5's as much as the gen 4, plus while they have more power, they are heavier, and I've been told they don't handle as well, but they are out of my price range anyway. I did a very silly thing today. I have been admiring quite a nice condition series 3 Supra (the wedgier one before the latest (that was used in the fast and the furious)) for the last few months, and yesterday I saw a for sale sign. So I rang about it today. Insurance won't be much more than the Saab, and for some insurers, actually cheaper than a uk or import Prelude. I know I wanted to save money and buy smaller, but there is something enticing about 3 litre straight six turbo RWD Electric everything and cruise and aircon still works. It's also a manual, so fuel should be a little better than slushmatic. leather interior, with electric adjustment. MOT till december, no tax, £1800. Unfortunatley the last owner kept the service records, so there is no history with it. But it is still tempting. -- Carl Robson (The poster formerly known as Skodapilot) http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
