Might Flight If Fancy
NOV
14

Manufactured in June 1988 and purchased in the summer of 1988 with only 64 miles on the odometer, my Turbo Coupe has traveled (flown) California interstates, mountain passes in Santa Cruz and country switchbacks, the nations interstate system from California to Florida. Drives from the San Francisco bay area to Lake Tahoe, Napa Valley, Monterey, and Yosemite National Park (love that “firm ride” indicator from the automatic ride control. Best part, to hear the whine of the turbo spooling up when you hit the gas! Odometer reading still climbing upwards past 237,000. In her “golden” years she runs a 40-mile interstate jaunt to get me from mom’s to my local airport where I really take flight.
