I really dig the original blue/yellow California plate.
I am very enamored with this 1985 Mare-coor. I spent a bit of time this afternoon chatting with the owner, a friendly octogenarian. The infamous bi-plane rear spoiler sits in his garage. The owner didn't like its added weight or the fact that it actually increased drag.
It's a two-owner car. The original owner was a mature businesswoman. This car was never hooned.
Cosmetically, it has seen better days. But there is hope. A tree branch fell on the hood and damaged the two front fenders as well (near the base of the A-pillars). The hood came from a red model. I think a trip to the body shop; some paint on the hood and fenders; and a nice wash and wax job can do wonders.
The car is practically all original, save the 14" Enkei rims (tres '80s) and the manual transmission out of a Mustang. It's a daily driver, is regularly maintained, and the turbocharger just had a rebuild. Did I mention it's got less than 90,000 miles on the clock?
The interior is in very decent shape. A carpet covers the dash, so I doubt it's cracked underneath, despite being a car that hasn't seen the inside of a garage for at least a decade.
I think this car has a lot of potential. I gave the owner my contact info and asked him to call me when he's ready to sell it. Does anyone want to talk me out of it?
