I am so envious of this guy. Earlier this year, I search everywhere as best I could to find a shorty (88-89). I had to settle on a '92. It's a nice car too, once I worked out most of the electric issues which should have been engineered out by the end of the run, but I still prefer the shorties. Once again, thanks for posting. I think you and I are the only Toro owners keeping this forum going. Is there another, more active toro forum that you belong to? Thanks, Ren

There is not. I am a moderator here and I work daily to keep the forum alive. I do appreciate you posting. I hope you and others will continue to post. I am not a fan of downsized era , but I make sure I talk about all the Oldsmobiles downsized or fullsized. The downsized era from from 1986-1989 for Toronado.

I have to tell you that the '86-89 Toros are a great handling car. They just needed a supercharger and a 5 speed manual would have been nice. They had the advanced electronics already. More drivetrain performance would have completed the package and appealed to sports handling enthusiasts.

Regarding lack of participation from members, I just don't get it. I members viewing but hardly anyone comments. I guess none of them work on their cars themselves and/or pay someone to do it. Oh well, thank you for taking on the administrator responsibilities. Because your dedication and efforts, I have access to past posts that provide helpful hints and tips such a the cluster gage write-up from 2000. Thanks again.

I just purchased an ‘88 Trofeo with 36k miles this weekend. Already have an issue with it, that I wrote about in a more appropriate thread. This is a great resource! Too bad more people aren’t using it. I always wanted a short body toro and finally have one!!

tpsullivan84: I didn't want to speak negatively about the lack of current participation in this forum but since you brought it up, I agree. I have been purchasing 20+ year old GM cars for years such as Bonneville, Riviera and Cadillac and they all have very active forums. You may want to join the Riviera forum as they had a lot in common. The 3800 sub group of the Bonneville forum is also good with respect to engine concerns. Well I guess it's up to us to keep this forum active as 98 Regency does a huge amount of work to keep it going. Post pictures when you can.
