Hi all,

I bought myself this for Christmas.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/1988-Ford-Thunderbird-SC-Coupe-/292359064135?hash=item4411f54a47%3Ag%3AkpcAAOSwsI9aGdTI&vxp=mtr&nma=true&si=4OpBJHjW7hL%252BxneVkcbvSmI0pWg%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
I always wanted a TC, considered buying one new. This car is almost like new. It has a coupe of cheesy issues I need to work on. It has a coolant leak, and it is shaking a little bit at 3000 rpm, but maybe they all do. I don't know. Somebody put a weenie single exhaust on it at a muffler shop. Otherwise mostly I'll be trying to preserve what's there.

I am in Kingsport, TN. I also own a Mark VII LSC Special Edition

Thanks! I like it. I like the blue too. I had a friend here who had a bright red one back in the day. I have never seen another bright red, not even a picture on the web.
