yeah i saw that earlier too. must be really rare, like it said only 16 , i had never even heard of the turbo motor in the 82, i thought it was strictly a cosmetic package.

Here are some pictures of one that lead a rougher life. I rescued this one from the crusher. Everything was there except the original turbo and motor.

Unfortunetly the only way to save this car was to swap VINs onto a good shell. I ended up selling it to someone else with more ambition than money. It may still be in the Omaha Nebraska area.

That's not right. There are 22 and counting....

16 was an ESTIMATION made back in the early 90's. Unfortunately is been reported so many times that it now accpeted as fact.
 
After looking at your homepage I have my answer. Still seems strange that even an authority such as gnttype.org would have different numbers.
