[DML] Re: Buyers Guide book updates...

James - It is white, without the black and silver cardstock cover. It's also printed on the thinner, glossy paper. I've only ever seen three '83 Owner's Handbooks. I saw a perfect, unblemished example in a display case at DCS in either Gettysburg or Lexington in the museum room, and the two I own. One came in my car (in poor condition), and the other I bought from a vendor table at DCS in Gettysburg. I showed it to you there and asked if it was authentic, and you said, yes, from Consolidated. Perhaps you thought I was holding a late '82 version? My manual transmission operation page is different from your .pdf file for sure. It warns of the gear grind and explains how to prevent it. The next time I know our paths will cross I'll bring one with me to show you. The one from my car came with a white dealer list I mentioned in Orlando. I'll bring that too.
