    Default New (to me) car coming home tomorrow

    One I've been looking for for over a decade. Needs a little TLC, but .

    (Hint: Check the daily pic thread (yesterday) for an interior shot of this make/model)

    Yes. 1986 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z with a 5 speed. :smile:

    I had the same car, but red exterior and automatic from '95-'99. I've owned two '88 Z's since then, but they both had flip up headlights and gray leather, just not the same. I've been searching for a non ragged out '86 with the black cloth interior for over ten years. John, that's the bad part. The guy who has this one had "trades considered" in the CL add. I called and asked what he was looking for in a trade. His words "Well, I really like this Daytona, but I've always had a soft spot for Fieros and I would like to find an '88 GT 5 speed". I was quite surprised (so was he when I told him that I have one), and since my wife simply does not like the Fiero (never even sat in it), and since my two boys always want to fight over who gets to go with me when I drive it, I bit the bullet and sent him pics. He was blown away and sold on the heads up trade. I'm sad to see the Pontiac Go Cart GT go for sure, but really, do I need 8 cars?

    The itch I've been trying for soooo long to scratch...

    My baby in '99, right before I traded it heads up for an '85 Jimmy on 44's. I sold the Jimmy within a week for $5500, twice what the Daytona was worth at the time. I went back to offer the kid $3000 for the Daytona back only to find it in his driveway with the front end crumpled up into the front seat. He rear-ended a parked garbage truck at 45+mph the night he got it. He survived with no major injuries, but I stll get sick to my stomach when I think of seeing it that day.




    The two '88's...(Yes, two different cars. One C/S w/t-tops, one Z w/sunroof)
