I may be returning sooner then I thought

Well I just sold my 87 Tbird a few weeks ago. While searching market place late a few nights ago( first mistake, lol) I stumbled across a 4 eye bird. (This one is kinda special....I will leave it at that for now)My first bird was a 4 eye and it was always the one I regretted selling. Anyway it’s a 3 owner, low mileage 85 with V8. I’m in talks with the guy now ( he’s elderly and doesn’t drive the car anymore) . I will update in a few weeks if all goes well with the deal.

Hope ya end up with it!

I'm searching for an '88 Sport (or even V8 LX) myself. HAS to be an '88, and has to have a very nice body, no rust.

I have settled for too many shitbag cars in the past, this time I want one that doesn't need body work, It's gonna get an rngine and trans update and that is it, well, brakes/suspension, but nothing else.

Have a lot going on with the house, and all but keeping an eye for the car all the same..

What’s up guys. I do indeed have the car now. But the week it was delivered work took off and I have been working long hours. (Which is a good thing) I have not even driven the car yet but I have it registered and insured. It is a 30th Anniversary edition with low miles. I will try to get pictures soon.
