Hi all, i have just bought an 87 cabby. Just wanted to say hello. i will be posting pics and info later. I am glad to be joining the community.
If you like the CSI TV series, you'll like working on the car. Be prepared to educate yourself well. Buy the Bentley Repair Manual (now in hard cover) asap and book mark Cabby-Info.com
You'll be reading every word on that site. Trust me............. But, in the end, taking care of the car and working the bugs out as they occur is quite rewarding. Parts are readily available but stay away from the ones marked made in China. Tip off is low, low price. They work a few days or months, then self destruct. Post your questions here and you'll always get great answers from several of the top guns. I got mine to a daily driver status with their help and the web site (thank you Kammy) in very short order. The car is an attention getter for sure, as well as a very fun ride.

I've had mine a month or so, it's been pretty non-stop fixing her up both undoing the PO(s) bodge jobs and other minor things. Loving the hell out it.
Between the Bentley manual, cabby-info and the helpful and knowledgeable folk on this here forum, you should be set!
Welcome and good luck with your new friend!
Just take the time to update your profile with the year of your car, and general area of the country where you are located. So that when you describe symptoms, we can relate to where you are.

Here is a pick that my friend took. As soon as i get my camera back i will post more. Sorry he likes wierd angles lol
its an 87 cabby 2 owner. it was garage kept most of its life. seems to be in really good shape. has a few issues but nothing that cant be fixed.
only real draw back is that it is an automatic.
thanks,, i am planning on finding a donnor car and converting to a manual. later i will start working on the inside and such. the first thing will be upgrading the stereo.
btw i work on nissans for a living. so this is a bit of a change. lol
here is what i spent my day on friday
you should get the outer trim for that headlight plus the chrome strip....
