I hardly ever see birds of our era on the road anymore so any sightings are rare but this one surprised me not just because it was a bird but also because it was actually running!

That one has definitely seen better days

I've actually been seeing a couple of 87-88 tbirds around here in pretty decent condition driving around, no turbo coupes though
1987 T-Bird
Too much stuff to list
Running better than ever

I've had some people ask me what kind of car the turbocoupe is. It's shows how few are out there but sad that don't know what it is.

There's one for sale locally. Unusually good condition for an '88. I think it's black, maybe charcoal. 130k+, I think he's aksing 42. Been for sale for months.

Oh, just noticed the one above -- AUTO and still on the road?! Wow. Wonder if trans rebuilt or converted.

In that condition though, maybe just missing a TP.
88 TC -- Dark Blue 283k
