View Full Version : Sold off my last bird

02-02-2017, 02:45 PM
Well after about 20 years and 17 tbirds the last one has flown the coop. I`m now birdless. Being a Ford man I did stick with at least a Lincoln. I bought a 2012 Lincoln MKS ecoboost. Its the 3.5 twin turbo with 355 hp 355 tq. With the stage 2 package which ups the boost it should put down 400 whp. and all wheel drive makes this a nasty sleeper. The MN12 was by far the best cars of there time. Did anyone notice that the underside bolts came out clean on 20 year old cars. I never broke a single bolt off on any of my cars, underside only. I broke one off in a intake manifold once. I still give a thumbs up to all the MN12 drivers I see.
I still love the SC`s and might wind up with one some day but until then keep the rubber side down guys. I still have some rare sc thunderbird parts and some free parts
Like a passanger side fender and door black from a 96 LX. I will dig them out this spring. Mark

Best of luck to you with the MKS and modding that potent EcoBoost. I've had my SC since 9/99 and although I don't drive it much since I got my first Lincoln, a '98 Mark VIII LSC in 2010, it's very hard for me to part with it.

Hope you hang around the board still, great bunch of people on here!

I will always come back here as the SC was my first love. I looked for a 98 LSC black for years and never pulled the trigger. Every one I checked out has some kind of defect as in bad dents or neglect. Loved the 4.6 4v and wanted to put one in a SC with a blower. The MKS will do for now.

Give me a call first to make sure i`m home. I`m retired too. I only saved the good parts.

Sorry to hear that Ron. I spent a month there myself not that long ago. I held onto the parts and I will hold them for you. I still have that perfect passenger door and fender in black from a 96LX if you or anyone here needs them. I have good half shafts and like new tires and rims but you have first dibs. Hope your doing better. see you soon.
