    Me too. 84 GN mostly original except for the usual bolt-ons, alky, hot wire FP, etc.. Owned her since 1988, good shape inside and out, runs great. High mileage summer dry daily driver. Unless I'm offered a stupid amount of cash It's not for sale.

    OK, I'll bite - how many has got to be a guess but I know of at least three in Canada that were bent around a telephone pole or bridge abutment. There were some 200 of the 2000 imported into Canada and only 4 in the Ottawa, Ontario, Canada area. Mine was originally sold to a Dan Davis from Harvey Pontiac Buick in Pembroke Ontario. I bought it from Dan in October 1988 and have enjoyed it being bone stock ever since. I have driven it to Florida for the winter, the last seven years. I love it just the way it is. In Jan/Feb 2016 a shop in Bonita Springs Florida told me my intake man was cracked so i had a spare blasted and took it to the shop. they said they had cleaned it out thoroughly - BS - two weeks later - bad engine knock. the shop said wrist pin - no biggy so I put in Royal Purple and drove it 1600 mile home. Bottom line - they didn't clean it out well and the oil pickup was 80% clogged. Rods, mains, pistons, cam turbo etc.; all shot. Hope to get it back from the machine shop soon 'cause i want to drive it to Fla again this Halloween.

    So sad - but still a committed 1984 GN owner.

    I know this is an ANCIENT thread but I have an 84 t type with standard cloth buckets. Pallex material like the later cars but brown. I believe it's original but don't know. What's the RPO codes for these options?

    Old thread. I've been away from the forum a while. Not sure why. I drive my 84 weekly. It's got 140k on it. Not stock but still hot air. I hit the drag strip maybe 5 times a year.

    This August I won our local turbo event called turbo thunder. We we're bracket racing so I wasn't the fastest but I was super consistent and did accidentally pull a 12.80 on a 13 dial in. Luckily the other guy red lit.

    This winter I'll tune it to run sup 12.5 and see how it likes that.

    Minus 1 ... 9-11-16, She got rear ended and careened into the median. Parted the wreck, many usable parts went to '84 owners and the engine lives on in my '85.

    Factory 0-60 same as a '64 Ford Galaxie 500XL with the dual 4BBL 427, oddly enough. So should whup it in the 1/4 mile. Those Fords were kinda heavy, def better mileage. :D
