Wow, that's in beautiful shape for an '83! Paint looks fresh, and especially with it being a convertible, the interior has survived three decades very well.

Right now pretty bad at 10 - 11. I have a line on a guy that is supposed to know these old Qjet and early ECM that may be able to get it up some.

That's about what I guessed. I've had one with the same engine that eeked out 14 highway, but it wasn't a rag top.
