I'm just curious to see how many of the 128,533 Turbo Coupes this site can account for. So include all of the Turbo Tbirds you currently own, ones you have owned and the ones sent to the crusher. Don't include ones you sold to other active members on the board. As of now I have owned one. I own an 88' 5-speed.
1988 total is 1 out of 35,271. Total Turbo Coupe numbers are 1 out of 128,533.

P.S. Teh cites sub scripsion to speel chek is owt.

I'm in for 2-88 5-speeds with all the options and I have an 87 5-speed parts car. I have sent 2 birds to the yard with not much left on them, defiantly won't be on the street again. I have owned 6 in all, but one of them I sold to "chemist" who lives in Florida. So I guess my count would be 5.

From Finland you can account following TCs:
-My 88 black 5spd (ex automatic)
-83 owned by friend, originally dark red, now black (nowadays equipped with supercharged SB)
-one 85 5 spd, dark grey (found from sales advertise)
-six 87-88 which I've seen on the road or in sales advertises, all automatics (one dark red, one white, one grey, one medium sandelwood, one dark blue, one black)

So total 9 TCs around here but probably there are more hidden in carages. These are known to exist for sure, seen by me.

Well, as far as Turbo BIRDS I can't account for any, but for the Turbo CATS, I have a 1985 XR7, and there is also an '84 and an '86 XR7 in my small town, both run, but neither seems to know what they have. The '84 the guy wants to turn into a "race car". Around here that means dropping in a 5.0 or 351
