That is definitely a rare car.
Why does it look like the air breather lid has little/no paint left? I'd think he'd have fixed that before selling.
Hopefully it'* fate isn't as sad as the Stang below.
I remember the 1984 Mustang Pace Car my neighbor had when I was a kid. She bought the car new and swore she was never gonna sell it, and wasn't gonna get married so as to protect it from any menacing husbands. Then in 2000 she found she was pregnant and got engaged -the Stang had to go. Sold the Stang in October to a local kid for practically nothing (considering the car was still showroom mint and still smelled new inside with only 52,000 miles). March 17th, 2001 the local ambulance went north of town on a report of a rollover with 2 injured minors. Turns out the Stang had went to meet it'* maker. Apparently the new owner had been drinking at a party and the guy he gave the keys to had had almost as much and driving a stock suspensioned 1984 Stang at 90mph on a sharp * curve with a 45 mph posted limit was too much when they caught the gravel on the ride shoulder, overcorrected and sent the car spinning, and into a culvert upside down on the left side of the road, ejecting both occupants, and killing the owner (passenger) and only minor cuts for the driver (who now resides in a state penetentary).
Sad part for me was finding out about it after I had spent two hours bitching about how 'Mike' was late for work and I was having to do both of our jobs -then I found out he'd never be in to work again in the detailing department at the Ford dealer we both worked at.

I still am active with them, just not as much as I used to be. my Shelby Dodge mechanic said to bring the TURBO GTC up to his place this winter so he can go through the engine in his spare time and hopefully in the spring I run my first 13.xxx 1/4 in almost 3 years and in my car.
My SD mechanic also has a couple SHELBY CSX'* (1987 CSX w/57k, and 1989 CSX-VNT with 80k) in mint condition, as well as a Dodge Shadow with a body kit similar to the 1989 CSX-VNT. The Shadow now has around 350 hp and will be running low-mid 12'* if he can get some slicks.
