Very interesting. My '94 had the newer design center caps (the ones you show for '96) with the squattier letters and unconnected "B". I assumed they were original on my '94, but maybe not.

its really tough to tell Bob...there is not definate when they switched over the caps...i think it was on a whim when they decided to go to the newer vs the older...

Yup..........it wouldn't surprise me at all that the use of caps was very random, or that the previous owner of my old '94 had acquired some of the newer style caps before I bought it.

Excellent work on showning the variations.
