    Very nice. I test drove one back in '87. Would have bought it, too, but the insurance would have killed me (I was somewhat young back then, and not making a lot of money).

    So. How did you manage to find an '87 in MN with only 63K mi. and not reduced to a pile of rust?

    Wow! That brings back memories! Great find! I had 3 (not all at the same time). I prefer the original body style, but no matter which one, these are super fun cars. I had an ‘83, 84 and 85, the latter with the 13B engine. For its day it was stupid fast. I remember winding out the engine to 11,000 or 12,000 rpm with this anemic little buzzer in the dash letting me know I was, um, a “little” above red line.

    Not just fast, but I remember the one I drove as having the weight pretty evenly distributed among all 4 wheels and handled exceptionally well.

    Craigslist. He was almost 45 min outside the metro, and that must have kept people from driving out to see it. The guy was into original relics from that late 80s, early 90s era, and had a few different cars from that era that looked new. He was moving this one on because he just wasn't driving it enough.

    Yeah, I wanted a 13B. I looked for the first gen body with a 13B and had a tough time finding one, but this one was so clean, I couldn't pass it up.

    Troutster, it looks great! I don’t think I would have passed it up either!

    That's a very good find!
    Care for it as long as you can.
