IMAG0067.jpg I have done very little to enhance the car. It was in great shape as it stood when I bought it from Joe a few years ago. I had it shipped from Kansas to Virginia and it now rests in NJ with me on the Central Shore area. I put dual pypes exhaust on it, an ISAC alky/boost controller, custom blue T mats, and a new a/c system. It needs a bumper filler (stupid Jersey gas pumpers), a/c recharge (it's a newer system but needs looking into), has a slight oil leak from the attachment for the oil cooler (it's minor and my garage is too tight to fix it. Just needs tightening and teflon tape). Runs great and I only put 4k miles on it. I am also including brand new (as in never driven on this earth) firestone drag radials on spare 8.5" rear wheels. Here is the post below from when I bought it (I modified a few items as appropriate). I am asking $17,250.00 and can't go too much lower. Don't really need to sell it but could use the money on some home improvements.

have a VERY VERY nice/clean 84,xxx mile survivor 1987 Buick Turbo-T for sale. I own a small performance shop in Paola, Kansas that specializes in turbo Buicks and have done a lot of very tasteful mods to this sleeper car. I wanted to stick with a stock look but focusing on a driveable high 10 second car which I accomplished with ease. The car is a rare light blue with dark blue interior (1 of ~200 made in 1987) color combo hardtop with p/w, p/l, tilt, cruise, rear defog, posi, concert sound II radio, remote mirror adjustment, power trunk release, aluminum bumper supports and brake drums. The body is rust free and almost lazer straight with incredible OE paint that really shines and looks great! It has the rare black out trim with chrome accents. There is no fading, tears or holes in any of the interior parts and the body is damage free. You really need to see this car to appreciate it. It can be driven anywhere and handles like a charm. All of the parts listed below are new or have been purchsed recently. Title is clear and car is ready to go.

This car has run a best of 10.91 and 10.90 @ 121 mph on an easy tune (24 psi and low timing) and runs 11.0's - 11.teens all day long with no problem. It has run a best 60' time of 1.42 and will run 1.5's everyday on a decent track. It typically runs 7.0's in the 1/8 @ 98-99 mph and has run a best of 100 mph in the 1/8 with 6.70's et's....these numbers with a 61-52 turbo!! The new tranny has 0 street miles or track passes since being rebuilt on 11/14/2008. This car was recently driven 500 miles to Bowling Green, KY. for the Buick Nationals (May 2008), averaged 21-23 mpg doing so, ran deep 11's all week. I actually won bracket 2 this year with this car running within .02 of my dial and qualified in the #1 position for TAI and B2. Based off of the times posted above I would guess that the motor is making 450-500 hp to the tires. The car weights 3385 pounds without driver (1/2 tank of fuel) and is full OE sheet metal. It has been in Kansas its entire life and has not seen any road salt nor has it ever been a true daily driver. I knew the previous owner who purchased this car in 1990 from the original owner who he knew well...this car is very well cared for and it shows.
If you want to see a good pic of this car launching on drag radials, check out page 50 of the January 2009 edition of GM High Tech magazine...my claim to fame.

Mind slip on the firestone...they're goodyear drag radials. Plenty of info on their prior performance online. Not trying to sell them separately unless the car doesn't sell.

Actually tax refund may have put a stop to me having to sell. Now all I need is a new bumper filler to bring her back to perfection. And yes those times were on MT drag radials. I too have only used the MT's as the Goodyears (not Firestone that was a typo/mindslip) are brand new and have never seen the earth's surface under friction.
