Sluggish '89 200; looking for '85TQC

When I had an '89 200, I noticed that I couldn't get full boost all the 
time, and I also noticed that the coolant temperature gauge wasn't working 
correctly either.  I replaced the sender (4 pin, I think) and it fixed both 
problems.  The computer won't allow full boost till the engine is warmed up, 
and the faulty sender was telling the computer the engine was still cold.

BTW, anybody know of any '85 TQC's for sale?  I really like my '90 Coupe, 
but it just doesn't have the "personality" that my '83 TQC did.  However, I 
don't want something with that much "personlity" ($$).  So, if anybody's 
interested in a '90 coupe, I can e-mail you the particulars.
