pics of my 1988 TC

I just bought this car about a month ago and I love it. Just got my new 17X9 Cobra R's in Wednesday and got em on.....thought I'd just show it off a little.....its a work in progess bought it for $2000 at a local used car dealer. Working on saving up for boost controller, exhaust and FMIC at the moment. Order a set of white face gauges and new sway bar end links a few days ago. plan on doing some more when time and money allows it. Also anybody got a COMPLETE middle console all the tabs are broken on mine.

Looks good man. I loved my Fox Bird, but it was too old, and I couldn't afford to do everything I wanted to it. Yours looks pretty clean. Take care of it. TC's are getting pretty rare.

Go to NATO.com and research before buying any performance parts. I found tons of useful information there and the people are really helpful.

yeh figured id tease people a little, since there seems to be a lack of turbocoupe discussion on this forum, but thats alright. i know how you feel i was wanting a supercoupe pretty bad, but gave up then ran across this car in the local paper and snagged it up. thanks for the compliments

I really like the 88TC's too. Wish I could get one. Well I probably could, but would have to either get rid of my SC or my truck. I saw one for sale near where I live that looks absolutely mint inside and out. Looks like it rolled right off the showroom floor. Guy is tryin' to sell for almost $6k! And it has about 120k miles on it.

heh....wish mine was mint, but ive been trying to get it to where it needs to be......just hoping im not gonna have to sell mine, since i just found out sunday my wife is pregnant.....hehe....hopefully wont have to sell and get a station wagon.....although the dodge magnums are pretty intriguing......but doing what i can to hang on to it, especially since havent had it but a few months. hoping i can save up some money and get me another car and sat the tbird to the side to fix up like i want, but $6 grand for that car seems pretty outrageous with those kinda miles, but oh well.....if somebody wants it bad enough they'll pay for it

Nice car!! Gotta love those Cobra R's.
Keep it nice, as the TC's are getting hard to find in that kind of shape.
