Hello gents,

I wanted to introduce myself and my car.  I purchased this pretty decent bird about 8 months ago.  I purchased it from the second owner, in non running condition.  After a handful of repairs it has become my daily driver.  I never knew how many people liked these cars until I bought it on a whim, I get comments and compliments every single time I drive it.  It’s really cool!
Anyway, thanks for the wealth of knowledge and hopefully I’ll be able to contribute some as well.

Some of the work that I’ve done so far includes new belts,tensioner, timing belt, rad fan motor and rewire, 3g alternator, fix the AC, fuel pump, floor mats, restore headlights.  I also recently fixed my PRC that was acting up.

Nice looking ride. For a non running car the condition looks awesome. The leather interior looks hardly used.
1988 T/C Silver with red interior, fully loaded except for leather. 5 lug conversion with 97 Cobra wheels, Cobra 13" brakes up front, Mustang brakes out back, Koni adjustable shocks and struts, NOS Koni lowering springs . Maximum Motorsports control arms and caster/camber plates, subframe connectors.
SOLD September 2020. Will miss this car after 19 years of building/driving/showing....time for a new chapter in my life.

Yes these cars are awesome, On three different occasions I've been walking towards mine in a parking lot and saw a note on the windshield. After the initial panic that it's the other guys/gals insurance info because they hit it, I found that it was a note wanting first dibs if I ever wanted to sell it.
Enjoy the ride.

Wow, that car looks great for a non-running purchase. Most of the stuff I find that isn't running is a total project. I LOVE the red interior in these cars but the car I picked up is blue. Glad to hear you're having fun with it.
