Found this gem near Toronto. Rare 35th anniversary super coupe with a 5 speed, with 13000 original km.

You have a beautiful car!
Ford raced the hell out of these cars winning everything. Love these birds from that unprecedented time in Ford racing history from NASCAR's Awesome Bill from Dawsonville to the King of Pro Stock Bob Glidden.
Congrats!

Rocketman always jokes about me making him look normal ....

If I were to have somebody that cars wise made me look normal I guess you pretty much fit the bill 😂😂

You still have the Cyclone?

Cool choice. I’ve owned two of them in my lifetime. A BMW 6-Series killer for sure.

Very nice! When I was in high school, I wanted an '87-'88 Turbo Coupe in the worst way. They were 5 years old at that time, so fairly cheap, but my dad said "no way" when I took him with for a test drive and made the mistake of accelerating a bit too hard. Love your eclectic collection. True "car guy". 🍻

nice find.

what are you doing to the Mark IV?
Gonna have Jeff do an EFI conversion on it. Tired of it not running well/carb needing maintenance with the ported heads/cam setup off my old Mark V.

I do like those, but I need a mint '89-90 SHO first!

interesting to see how one of those setup behave on an older big block. I have a hard time starting the Mark III if it sits more than a few days but once it gets going it starts right away ever time you shut it off.

Yeah, toss some gasoline on the fire of the V-6 haters..... Yamaha to boot....

Great car, a family member had one new, then on to the v-8 after. The gen one was much more fun with 3 pedals. Ironically the Contour came after the SHO's. I drove them all a good amount.
