I just have to say that our shop 280TE that we imported in 1985 has to be one of the great all time cars.
We used it as a shop vehicle for 15 years just retiring it last month for a 91 300TE. We sold it for more than half what we paid for it to one of our mechanics that helped federalize it fifteen years ago.
For years we pulled a 19ft ski boat with it on the week ends.
