88 turbo coupe

my dads turbo coupe:

Runs a 16.5 completely stock... very consistent too. I guess thats not too bad for a big 4 cylinder car.
picked this one up for $100... looking for a ranger body!

my car, for sale...

Well, its a 78 camaro. It has a 540 merlin III block, dart 345 pro 1 heads, 13:1 compression, fogger(275hp shot), and some other race goodies. Runs 9.0 on a light spray of nitrous, but the cam is extremely nitrous biased so it will run low 8s with a bigger shot. Stock suspension too. When it had the 383 it would stand straight up, but we weighed it down with the big block
here she is...

What are the plans for the four eye after you find the Ranger body?

Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are:
You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

lol, we had a red 89 IROC- Z convertible, those were so nice. I wish we still had ours too.

once we find a ranger body we will drop the 2.3t in it and lighten it and race it. Im tryin to sell my BMW so i can hopefully by one of the tcoupes, preferably the 88. Then the 86 body is either sold to someone for $200 i think... or might jsut be goin to the scrap yard after I take the leather seats out.

LMK before you tear it up, I may be interested in taking it off your hands as a parts car (if the seats are gone) or maybe as a 5.0 build.... I'm close enough to dolly it home on a Saturday.

first, the car doesnt have a title. So it can only be a parts car. Second, it will be sold w/o the motor/tranny. if youre still interested, my email is [email protected]

If you decide to pull some parts from the '86, I would be interested in some interior parts and the Marchal fog lights (if it still has them).

I'll take a parts car if the price is right, don't need the motor or tranny. We have a trailer and many dodge trucks.
