I just picked up this 1996 Ford Thunderbird from my in-laws. I was in need of a new project seeming the Sorento is pretty much complete at this point. It's been sitting for a few years. It's in need of a litte body work and a some mechanical work (Brakes etc..) but the 3.8L motor and the interior are in great shape. When thats all complete I'm going to put some new wheels and rubber under it, tint the windows and probably play with the motor a bit.

Darn not the 5.0
Mustang motor..

Though I had that same motor in a taurus SHO back awhile. Nice and strong, only issues are weak oil pumps, mine failed, blew it up lol.
Sad to, as the oil light comes on just as it starts smoking from no oil. Too late at that point.
BUT
you should enjoy the car, looks good :)

I would love to have a 5.0 in that car. I'm sure someday I'll eventually drop something bigger in it. It will look even better by the time I'm done with it.

I know!
