hey guys.

just wondering if you can tell me what you think of this.

its a 1989 Telstar TX5 Turbo. white, manual, lowered, 2 1/2 exhaust, tinted windows, polished TX5 rims, alarm and immobiliser, AUTOTECHNICA steering wheel, boost gauge, boost controller, 240,000 kms.

a little bit under $6500. just want some opinions before i buy it.

thanks

hmm I was going to but one of them as well..

the only thing that really steered me away was that nost 89 Turbos would have pretty high milage by now.

Has the engine and turbo been reconditioned? That would be my first question. Also how is the gearbox?

Other than that and the whole FWD thing..they seem like a top car..just increase teh boost a bit as 92 odd kw's for that kind of car seems pissy to me.

Good luck
