What are you guys talking about? My 86, which is not in very pristine condition at the moment, doesn't squeak, rattle, or have leaks in the T-Tops or eat up anything (besides gas ). The motor for the rear hatch even works too.

I've been driving it for about 3/4 of a year, and it has been just sitting around for about 4 or 5. All I've done to it is a standard engine/transmission checkup, fixed a couple of problems in the rear end and it was good to go. Been running like a champ ever since.

As for the IROC in the video; DO WANT!

Today I went to Orielly's to change out my serpentine belt, as I walked by one of the Orielly's associates who was helping somebody asked me if I knew where the sparkplugs would be on a Honda Civic... I simply told him that; "I don't know, I only work on American vehicles."

He told me that was the best damn answer he ever heard.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones. My 87, which I still have, I bought new and put 200k miles on with the original 2.8/5-speed never rattled, leaked or chewed up parts. It hit 212k in 98 when I pulled the eng & trans and swapped in a 400 sbc & M22 muncie trans. The condition you get any used car is all dependent on how it was taken care of by the previous owner(s).

I owned a 1985 TPI IROC-Z and a 1989 5.7 IROC and both were great cars for the time. The style still rocks today!
