1986 Turbo C/S: 5 speed, power everything, digi dash,...
I picked this car up just outside of Virginia Tech on the same day that wacko kid shot the place up. I was driving to get the car (I was in a rental car) and was getting passed hell, west, and crooked by news vans. I finally turned on the radio to find out what was going on. I'll never forget the day I got this car.
