    I am investigating purchasing one as a toy to play with...

    Are there any differences between the 1992 and 1993 models?

    What are some common problems?

    Who are some performance part companies for them?

    My friend had one back in 93 all red with black leather. LOTS of fun to drive, the only problem he had with his was the turbo went out and at the time he didn't know about turbo tuning and swapping, so he sold it. Only if I knew what I now know about turbos that truck would be 100 times better. Other than his turbo going out the truck was perfect. Sorry I can't help you much but thats my experience around one.

    I've seen a few in person from time to time when I was looking at Grand Nationals to buy. They are wicked machines, and I think in a few years I'll seek out a real low mileage one to play around with.

    Yea the range in price is similiar to the G/Ns i have seen anywhere from mid 5s to 30s for super low mileage gems...I think i am looking somewhere between that so i can get something that is straight but also mod worthy

    Not much difference between the two.
    '93 I believe, has a full psuedo leather seat, whereas the '92 has cloth on the backside of the seat.

    There is not a difference between the 92 and 93.

    None that are severe to my knowledge.
