Hello, and welcome to my 1988 Ford Tempo GL page! I bought this car on August 5th, 2007 from an online classified for only $200. She looks a bit scary right ... Show morenow, however she runs like a top and I like to think of her as a blank canvas. Fun car to cruise around in too.
Soon after the purchase, the car was named Gloria! after the song of the same name by Laura Branigan being played on the radio.
I plan to make this car a fuel miser by using aerodynamic, engine, and weight reduction modifications, so be sure to check in periodically.
This is what I want the car to be when I'm done with it:
The car has the 2.3L HSC engine with 98 horsepower mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. Other extras include power mirrors, door locks, trunk, and air conditioning.
So far I've removed the front passanger seat and replaced the broken tailights: Show Less
