** Note: Some early 1984 models had both a stalk-mounted and a steering wheel-mounted horn. The stalk mount horn was technically not an official feature for 1984 although they do exist as carryovers from 1983. The turn signal stalk lost the horn function sometime during the early production of 1984 models.
