But it is conceivable that he owned an earlier model bird when he wrote that, and the info applied to that year bird, and not the bird he currently owns. So how do you tell what year model the poster is referring to? I hope I made this understandable.
Brian, I agree that can be problematic. But when an owner changes models he changes his signature and I doubt that can be changed. So, the only reasonable alternative is to have patience, read the threads and post thoroughly, to see what the thread and poster are talking about. Whether it is a 1983 FC he had or the 1997 WB the owner now has.
