This is my third 5-speed '88 Turbocoupe. My first was what made me fall in love with these cars,
but I was rear-ended by a guy in a Trans-Am with no insurance and that was the end of that. About
two weeks later, I found this gem on the internet and drove four hours to look at it. It was so
beautiful, it made my blood feel cold in my veins when I first saw it - kind of like your first kiss to
the prettiest girl in school, ya know? I've owned the car now for about 3 years and have had my
share of normal and not-so-normal maintenance issues, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. While
I owned this particular bird, I bought another gray one for my wife that ran fine for awhile, but the
down time got too frequent with it so we decided to get rid of it. There are way too many kill
stories associated with this TC so I won't attempt to write them all here, but I can say that it has
done me proud throughout the years.
