I kept it for 18 years, eventually modifying it for a bit more "punch". (See below.)
But I drove it less and less. In the last year I owned it, I think it only went about 500 miles - for a total of 75,000 miles. So in January, 2007, I sold it and ordered a new Mustang.
The '87 was sure a fun car. If I had more storage space, I probably would have kept it. (It still turned heads.)

A triangle which connects the two strut towers with the firewall (see picture).
Also to improve stiffness -- something all convertibles lack.
Includes Ford Motorsport wires, high-output coil, timing.
Increases air flow.
Also increases air flow.
