Hi! This is my non-turbo '88 Daytona, 5-spd. (obviously). It's kind of uncommon because it's the base model with T-tops. I poached the rear wing and louvers from a junk turbo model an old guy had. It's currently in my driveway awaiting a new clutch frown

I love these. I have owned 2 88 Daytona Pacficas, 1 88 Daytona Shelby, 1 86 Omni GLH, Shelby Lancer #24 and about 5 other Turbo Mopars.
It always makes me happy to see them still driving.

I remember they were some of the hottest cars offered from Detroit in that era.

My friend had one. I remember driving it for the first time accelerating hard and the shift from 1st to 2nd.....torque steer was phenomenal. Other than that it was pretty fun.

My niece had a brand new '85-'86 Plymouth Laser Turbo. It really scooted in the day.

I'm incredibly jealous. I love all Turbo Mopars (and 80s Mopars in general), every last one. A guy near me had a Shelby Shadow up for sale on Marketplace, but it was just too trashed for me to bite on.

My very first car in high school was this teal '91 base Shadow 5-speed. I drove it for 3 years with no issues at all, and I did zero maintenance to it. [Linked Image]

Back when I was in college I had an '85 Daytona. It was a very trouble-free car.

I had a 88 Daytona Shelby Z back in my early/middle 20s. Mine was the Turbo 2 paired with a 5 speed and removable tee tops. Gosh how I luved and miss that car. Still kick myself in the rear for letting it go. Body was in perfect shape but toasted the motor and did not have the extra dime back then to invest.

Wow, talk about a blast from the past! I haven't seen one of those since 2005 when my friend had one for his first car. Don't think I've even seen them in the salvage yard anymore either.

I've only run into one other running one. A guy who's about 60 in my area has a blue 88 or 89 Shelby that he bought new. It still looks amazing. I told him I'd trade and he declined for some reason smile

You should have just parked it in a field like everyone else did. You know, to get it running again, someday...
