I had an 85 Turbo Z auto and loved it at the time. I had a problem with the vacuum lines being replaced with lower temp vacuum hoses by the previous owner and melting closed. Then I tried buying a used set (no replacement at the time) then trading it off. I liked how low the car set but the turbo lag was slow. I liked when the turbo kicked in and it handled well. Good car overall.

I'll agree with you there. I don't see the fwd mopars ever attaining the status of the old mopars, or even the 80's mustangs and camarobirds for that matter. And those sure have been ratcheting in up price around here lately for nice rust-free examples. I still enjoy seeing the 80's mopars around, in the last year I have only seen 1 on the road, a k-car in amazingly mint condition.

I have pulled apart a couple with bad cams, but never seen it in the 88+ models when they went to the roller rockers.

Considering a basic B-body project is still far north of $5000, $5000 for clean Turbo Daytona doesn't sound that bad.

Can't sell now as I promised both my kids I would teach them how to drive a standard this summer, It's my daughter that's the most excited to drive that car.
