Howdy.

I'm not sure what to say about myself other than I'm an engineer in Central Texas. I don't own a Thunderbird but I'm in the market for a nice 1987-88 Turbo Coupe. My mother worked for Ford back in the 1980s and, having recently inherited a (very) little bit of money I'm interested in getting something fun from that era. I knew a person who owned a TC and always enjoyed the styling and riding in it and now seems like a good time to pick one up for myself.

The ideal car would be blue with a blue interior, have a manual transmission, well optioned, and still stock. That said, I'm keeping an open mind as cars periodically come on the market.

Take care,
John

Log onto searchtempest.com and it will search all of Craigslist for a specified radius from your home that you determine. It may help find what you are looking for. Good luck with the search.

Good luck on your search!

Your best results will probably come from SearchTemptest as 50Racer mentioned. Sometimes they come on Facebook too, but across the country.

Good luck in your search. There are plenty of them out there, and of course they are a joy to drive.

Thanks. I know the right one will come along at some point, it's just a matter of keeping an eye out.

Do I get a finders fee?

It's up in Minnesota.  Looks pretty good.
Publicity, fame and accolades can make a theory popular. They can't make it true.

That metal flake bass boat paint, though. Yikes.

This one I think would be worth the drive.  Gorgeous looking car:

Is this owned by one of our admins here, Jeff?

Thanks! I'm definitely looking for an '87 or '88 though.
