18 years ago, I parted with a silver 87 auto TC.. Ever since that day, i have wanted a black manual but for some reason they eluded me. Every once in a while i would see one and it would either be to far gone or out of budget. At long last I found a solid, running black manual TC.. Well actually, my wife found it on FB. She was snickering to her friend how she shouldn't show me and when she did... Message him, i want that car.. On to the car.. zero rust and all original. Every receipt for the car, manuals, wheel locks, you name it. Its not perfect, has some paint issues which most will polish out but i may need to get the trunk lid painted.. The factory head unit is gone, i will likely find one just for originality but it will have an aftermarket system in it. Interior is fair, at least everything is there and everything works. Ill post pics along the way but Im so damn happy to be posting about my TC again! Anyhow, hello everyone and thanks in advance for all the knowledge i am going to need.

That is awesome, congrats on finding one. It still amazes me how many of us had these cars years ago, sold them, and have wanted one back ever since. I was in the same boat till about 4 years ago when I found my replacement TC. I am not selling this one!
