I know this is a Coupe thread, but a really nice Horizon Blue cab popped up in Orlando CL recently: http://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/3163832304.html

27 F6 Cobalt blue North American 968 cabs. 9 varieties if you factor in interior and top colors. Post the last 3 digits of your VIN and I'll tell you how yours compares.

Jack,
Here are the details on your cab:

#921 of 2,008 NA 968 cabs
#254 of 354 1993 NA 968 cabs
1 of 27 F6 Cobalt blue NA 968 cabs
1 of 1 F6 Cobalt blue NA 968 cabs with a cobalt top and a light gray/cobalt interior
Options include the tip, partial leather, XD4 painted crest center caps, 403 17" Cup1 wheels, 437 full power driver's seat, 490 hi fi sound with amps, 691 single in-dash CD.

Your carpets may have been replaced as they should be light gray in color. There was a deviated carpet option. What color is the carpet on the bottom of your door panels? It should match the floor carpets.

Cool that you have a 1 of 1!

Very nice, you definately have 3 colors going on there.

If you have a minute, take a look at your vehicle information sticker for me. It lists your options codes. You can find it on the opening page of the maintenance manual or stuck to the rear floor/rear tail panel under the carpet, to the left.

I have all the 3 digit codes for your car but not the 5 digit codes which would include the deviating carpet option. You should see 09991 which is the exclusive program and you have that because the the XD4 painted crest center caps. After that you should see another code, maybe 15801? Can you grab that and let me know? I'm still documenting all the 5 digit codes.

Thanks
Jeff

Jeff, the 5 digit code is 13941. I always wondered what that one was for.
And while we are sharing... do you get much cowl shake on rough roads at speed? My cab shake seems to be increasing with age (just turned 80,000 miles). I have the 17 inch rims like you and the ride is good but firm. I have replaced the rear shocks - but the fronts are original.

I am actually not far from Alexandria, only about 20 miles. The second last owner lived in Alexandria as well, would be great to find him.
Are you at Katie's Cars and Coffee once in a while in Great Falls, VA?
