Here is my '86 turbocat that was saved from the side of a barn in the middle of nowhere Mi. where it had been left for dead. Car was purchased in '06, but was recently put on the road due to the multitude of repairs necessary to make this car driveable. Also this cat did have the factory fogs when purchased but the lights were broken and the mounts were bent due to an obvious run in w/ a parking block. Oh, and yes, that is a steering wheel from a mn-12 cougar. This car is far from perfect but I love her.

Future Plans:
I am planning a full custom resto, but for now my plans are to add all the improvements that were brought forth in 87-88. This discludes the ihi turbo. After this car has been brought to those standards the fun begins.
