I thought you might want to know: There were only 1500 Sonic Yellows produced, divided between sedans and wagons, and were only available to North America. The sedans even had their own special VIN#s.

I also wanted to mention, my wife had a 1990 turbo GP... nice when the turbo spooled up, but what a hunk of $#!T.

Nice when the turbo spooled up? Hell, both my running TGP's (1 auto, 1 manual) have FULL boost (13.5 psi auto, 15-16 psi manual) at 2200 RPM (auto) or 1300 RPM manual!!!! That coupled w/ the massive torque (well over 300 lb/ft on a chipped (my chip) manual) made for a nice little mid 14 sec. $1000 car. :wiggles: I love them, but NO comparison to my Sonic Yellow Snow Cone.

Nice to know those numbers BTW, I knew it was ~1500 but didn't realize it was NA only and split sedan's/wagons. I get alot of pooo about the color, but I wouldn't have it any other way! :thumbup:
