KY New FC Owner - bought a car with the original window sticker!

I've been a 240 guy for years. Really thought about getting back into one again after selling my last in 2014. Toyed around with my 370z, then bought a more practical Mazda 6. I moved from Tampa, FL to Louisville, KY. I bought my wife a house, a puppy, and picked up and moved up here so I rewarded myself with a new project, since I got rid of my only fun car before moving. I don't know much about the FC, but after lurking here, and on Aaron Cake's site, I'm starting to get a feel for the community and I'm super stoked to be part of it.

I found a 1989 Turbo II shell hiding in Arkansas. Still have the paperwork from when the car was purchased for 30k back in 1989!

Plans right now are to build a fun street car. 250-300HP, comfortable shocks and lowering springs, and some gripping tires to run thru the mountains. Any recommendations would be awesome.

What a great find!! Will be looking forward to seeing pictures of its restoration. Window stickers are not very commonly found in these cars. I've only ever found one in an RX-7 that I bought and it was from an 88 TII.

Thank you I'm really looking forward to digging into it. I started taking the interior apart to clean it, and found 2 big puddles of water behind the seats. working on pulling the carpet out and getting that cleaned up so the car doesn't smell like a swamp.

Sunroof leaking perhaps?

Most likely. I haven't taken the A pillars down yet to check the drain lines. Car is garage kept now so no more water will be getting into it, but I'd still like to find out where it originated from.
