I just discoverd something new about my door locks.

When the car is running, open your door and try to lock it. They automatically unlock themselves. This is nice so that you dont accidentally lock your keys in the car while it is running.

Not sure if this is specific to the 85-86. Pretty neat though.

The 85 & 86 have that feature. I think the switch for the key is located on the ignition switch lock cylinder.

Yup... 84's do not do this..... funny story to go with it.... realize Im late for a helocopter flight from my office down to Redondo beach, come tearing up, park the car grab the breif case and RUN to the chopper which is running and waiting on the pad, return 6 hours later and as the chopper lifts of I reach for my key, hmmm where are they? I must have locked my keys in the car *oh no!*... but wait it gets better. As the chopper leaves and the its sound dies down I hear the sound of my Sup idling :dumbass: , the car has been sitting, running next to the helo pad for 6 hours. Not great for the car I know, but still. :oops:

Well did you at least leave the A/C on so it'd be nice and cool when you got back? :p Good story.
