Just bought a 1987 IROC, 5.7, TPI.  77K miles.



Elec locks, windows, powered driver's seat.  AC and heat both work. Original stereo (hairbands FTW!), and not a tear or crack on the interior.



T-Tops, of course.



NOT my car, but a pic of the same make/model/color.







I'll get pics of mine as soon as the mechanic finishes with it.



New plugs, wires, dist, rotor.  



Transmission pan was leaking so new gasket, filter and fluid for that.



NO oil leaks, none, nada.  Not even a hint of a past leak.



Mechaninc also replaced a high pressure hose from the power sterring that was leaking and a smog pump belt (boo hiss, smog pumps).



No major mechanical issues.



4000.00 US, cash.

Actually, I am in need of a haircut right now. I told my office-buddy that I was letting it grow so the mullet would look better.








The GF told me it makes me look middle aged.  Damn, I am gonna miss her.

$4K?  You got robbed.  I can throw a handful of stones in any trailer park and hit 4 or 5 of them in as good or better shape than that for less.

Car was in good shape, for what it is.

You must have one helluva arm to make a throw like that.  From Florida to Texas, and sight unseen on my car?

Thsi may come as a surprise to some people, but I am anti-technology.  I don't even own a digital camera.  Even my cell has no camera (Iconsidered that a selling point).

At some point, I will get pics, but ... don't hold your breath.

225 Factory HP.  My 740 BMW runs circles around it, but ... once the mullet grows out, it will all be worthwhile.

I am desperately looking for Poison, Motley Crue and other hairbands.  

FAGARAK offered me a collector's set of the Bangles, but I declined.

I see the hood has the "auto pop" feature installed. This is a good thing as the hood stays up more than down on these cars. Also you should buy hood struts in bulk. They only last about 5 times and then the hood comes crashing down on you with every breath of wind...

rofl...
Seriously..it's in great shape. They are a lot of fun and parts are cheap.
here are a couple of web sites you will find useful.

http://www.thirdgen.org/
http://www.top-downsolutions.com/
http://www.hawksthirdgenparts.com/
http://www.youngsfbody.com/home_page

If your doors are sagging..get the hinge pin repair kit from top down solutions. it's kick ass!



So far I have not found anything that this one 'needs'.  Bone-stock factory right now, and I don't seem to have any of the problems that others have reported with doors, etc.

I have browsed the sites you listed for information about the year model, but haven't found the Arfcom of the ThirdGen world out there.

I just remembered I need to go get teh title switched to my name this afternoon.  Pretty day here, good time to remove the tops.
