    5th Ann's were different trim, with 5th Ann badges embroidered on the door cards. They were Panorama silver with a different colour on the skirts so they're easily distinguishable from a regular model.

    It's a bit of a challenge trying to recall the exact specs after 26 years especially when I've never owned one but it was a neat item back in the day and a 5000i variant would be a good thing to have in the garage .... Carl is correct about the colours and I thought the wheels were coded to Panorama too but don't quote me on that .... they had nice trim too

    I think it would be good if Andrew P could dig out the facts and post them on here for all to see and fully appreciate ....

    .... but let me be clear on this statement / they will retain good value going forward and I think an original version of any of the 5th Anniv variants is good buying in today's marketplace ... and I can't help but think Crenno was tapping into the Brock "orgon energy green" that was the nickname for the "ill fated" Director in 1987 ... the colour was similar - but not exact ....

    Ah yes G.R., "The Director",....what a car. Build Number 4000, I think the color was "Ice Blue"? I've driven that car a couple of times, and have a picture of Karen standing in front of it while it was mounted on the turntable in the HDT Bertie St, showroom,.....those were the days!!

    Haven't heard of the "Senatar" before, must be a rare model indeed!

    Is the Weber Q included in the price?

    The last pic he has of senator for 85k has only done 350kms... Id rather his tho, 25k and in many pieces, will feel like its more bang for ya buck when you need to take it home in a few trailer loads
