I had an 85 XR7 Turbo with a 5 speed for 40,00 miles in the 90's. I painted it black, added 48 lb. injectors, a Superchip and manual boost controller. It was a real hoot! I've had a C5 & C6 Corvette and a SN95 Mustang since but I've always wanted another XR7 Turbo. Alas, that's a damn rare cat these days so I bought a beautiful black 88 T-Bird last week instead. It was last registered in 1993, has 35,000 miles and is equipped with dual power seats, light package, power moonroof and a mouse nest infested automatic climate control system. I intend to undo a couple visual customizations and add some HP. I'm looking forward to exchanging info and getting the groups two cents worth.
Is posting a picture of a damn sexy car a violation of the sexual content clause in the NATO user agreement???

The Mach 1 style whale tail is going away. I originally intended to remove the body kit but it's is growing on me so I'm not sure yet. You get first dibs though.
