Well, maybe I didn't surf around enough to find a newcomers thread when I joined yesterday. But I didn't find anything like that, so if this is in the wrong place the mods can move it to where it belongs.

Our first Turbo Coupe, an 88, was purchased a couple of years ago from a long standing NATO member in Iowa. I immediately joined this site, but because of some glitch was never able to surf the various member forums on here.

We now live in central Arizona where we have collected a couple more LimaTees. One is another 88 TC and the other is an early 84 SVO.

My wife, Sue, and I are avid car fans who both grew up in families that raced and collected classic cars. THe SVO is my daily driver and she drives an 87 LX vert 2.3, 5 speed.
Our latest acquisition is the white 88 TC that is a project car. We originally bought it for the 108,000 mile engine in case one of our other high mileage Tees gave out.
We have decided that it is far too nice to rob parts from, so are now in the restoration process.

Thanks again for the welcome.
I am beginning to find my way around in here a little better.

I have found lots of good info for TC owners like me who are relative newbies to these cars.

Welcome, and as some long-ago member stated to when I visited him (and bought his last TC!), he believes that ALL NATO members should live in AZ...! Beautiful place, but a bit hot for this wretched 4-seasons man!!!
