    Typically, I only get the 87-88 turbo coupes, not that I am opposed to the LX models, just none have presented themselves. I just today picked up number 15. It's real ugly, but still runs good and has a lot of good parts.IMAG0357-20180512-141852748.jpg

    Even when they're not pretty, they're never ugly

    Looks like a nice find. Haven't seen the inside though...

    Just be glad you still find them out by you. Up in the north where it *salts* in the winter they are all but gone.

    X2. So true around here.

    I am usually looking for spare extra parts, and in the yard they are so worn, they are worse than my parts. What is a person to do? I guess get a Mustang, and have it all easy...….Nope.
