1992 trofeo is on a distinguished road
Default

no aol or msn, usually come here after work (6hours ago from nowish), and around this time every day
I would really love to see pix of your 66 and 90... I hope you get those wheels... Depending on where you are it might be easyer to sell (or keep as a winter car) your 90 and buy a 90-92 trofeo--hint do not get the VIC, When my dad was ordering the car like 13 years ago, he said... "should I get that t.v. thinngy?" I as being 16 said, "hell yeah!!", but now I realize its best that he didnt. cuz that vic is just too much more crap then its worth... and these cars already come with enough extra stuff.

Does your 90 have a moonroof? both of mine do...
my 87 with velvet has buckets
and of course my 92 has leather buckets... velvet wasnt even an option for trofeo.

Your not too far away from this one out side of Chicago

very clean with tan leather. 92 trofeo... very tempting.. only 78k miles... mines got 138k miles and running stong, and my 87 has 220k miles, running but not liscenced.

If you get a trofeo with a digital feed/anologe style then you will need this at some point.

everything but the tach doesnt work, I was so confused for a long time... it was 255cdn to get it fixed..

Also (this goes for all 90+) the drivers side window may go off the track, all you need to do is glue(with windshield sealing sylicon) it on again.

Also (goes for 90+) the outter ring of the door handle on the drivers side may bust...

Also (goes for 90+) If you find your heat/ac isnt pumping very hard, you have a sealed car... your going to have to ask the dealership to uncloge it... (a good way to check is to shut your car door-without the other open, or mooonroof, and watch to see if the moonroof pops up)
because going down the highway air runs though the car (inner doors, and out the back around the wheels)

um. no moonroof. my window made a noise a while back but that stopped. my displays are all very bright. no VIC. do have keyless and killer tinting mirror. the keyless and rear view mirror are my fav options.. everything works great except my ac condensor has a leak in it. I have no ecm error codes. i do have a bcm code for the ac being low and since i have a column shift i get the shift position error code a lot because I dont get it fully in place all of the time so it wigs out and sets a bcm code. you know how to retrive codes? off and warm at teh same time.. that is the best part of the car also. I paid 1000.00 for my toro from the original owner. he went into an old folks home and it was sold off. it would not start so i offered 1k and they took it.
ended up being the fusible link near the battery. besides that this car was never driven in the snow. until me last winter but I was it whenever its dirty. inside and out and go for all of the hard to get rust gathering spots to prevent it.
I also oil inside of my door areas like the bottom corners to prevent rust. the only problem I have is the nosie that the engine makes after a while. the dunk dunk noise. ill hit up a shop monday. it drives very strong for 112k. i bought it with 90k something. i want to build a circut that will make the taillight flash like the car from knight rider did on the hood. that or sequential turn signals.... ill take pictures of the collection. lata

its 1:30 am.. blegh
