Thanks! Yeah and the WS6 package would make it fun to drive even in stock form. 301garage.com has also given me some good tips on how to remedy the lack of power while maintaning stock equipment. One sad part is that it has the deluxe cloth interior which is a one-year pattern for 81' and nobody is reproducing that pattern right now, so im going to have to revert to vinyl

Congrats on a great find and welcome to the site.
I had an 80 Turbo and loved it . I am hoping you do a full restore considering it's a Y84

Thanks guys, yeah the other day my friend was asking me about what it would take to get this one running and i just said "im not really concerened with getting it running right now, its getting the full treatment, and it needs it" haha. I wish i knew how many were actually left out there rather than production numbers. After 30 years of thrashing, theft, scrapping, weather (thinking tornadoes and hurricanes) who knows how few might be left anymore. Oh and dont forget those people who just let them rust to death in their yards >_> LOL
