Then why dont we start a chapter. It aint rocket science. We could at least get together for a lunch or something. Lots of S.C. guys in this area.

i would like to have one in illinois. I live like 20 mins away from chicago in des plaines. In my city alone there are 4 t-bird which 2 of them are sc. so i think it would be a great idea.

I was thinking that as well. After seeing attendance fall after setting uo three meetings for S. C. owners, I'll wait and see.

I am also the founding Chapter Leader for the Illinois Chapter from the Ford Truck Enthusiasts site. I've been an officer in many Ford product clubs over the years.

IF........someone gets it started, I'll be happy to help. I just don't have time lately to establish a Chapter myself at this time.

Hey all from Illinois SC. I met most of you guys at the Village Tavern a couple of months ago.My name is Sam and I had the white 89 SC and my buddy Kevin had the black and blue flamed 94 LX. Well anyway my 89 SC when I bought it leaked oil from the oil filter from hitting the cross frame. A week ago I saw more oil on the ground and it was smoking a little from under the alternater. So I took off the coil pack and alternater to take a look. I have some gunk under the valve cover, but I have oil that is puddling up under the exhaust manifolds ,next to the heads on the block and all around my oil pump, it's leaking down the block and running across the cross frame. I also have a high pitch knocking either in or under the supercharger. I took off the top SC tube and found oil in the tube and on the blades of the supercharger. The only MODS I did was the cone air filter running down to were the fog light was and 2&1/2inch from CATS back and two flowmaster mufflers. Oil pressure reading fine, no idiot lights are on in the cluster and the car is running strong as ever. On my 93 I spun a bearing and I don't want something like that on my 89 SC. I hope its just some gaskets to replace cause I don't have the money for big engine work. Just worried because its my daily driver. Hope one of you guys can throw me some ideas. Thanks for your time and can't wait for summer to hook up with you guys again. Thanks, Sam

We're trying to plan another get together your input would be welcome :D


Sam I would offer some advice but am not familiar with the SC motors.

we should seriously meet up. Also we should meet with the supercoupe club of iowa.

Most of us in the Iowa Chapter are in Central and Eastern Iowa, so something in Ill would not be any big deal with a bit of notice.

FYI, in case you were not aware ... every year we do a Spring and Fall "Drag Racing" event at Tri State Raceway in Earlville, Iowa (45 mins west of East Dubuque). We race against the GTP's. We call it Club Clash. Pleaee note that you are all very much welcome and invited to attend. It's open to any SC, T-Bird, Cougar and Lincoln Mark series vehicles as well as GTP, Grand Prix and like GM products.

What happened then? I even asked about a Chicagoland Chapter in another thread.

08-20-2008, 08:16 PM
OKAY................I'd be willing to get things rolling and organized. We just need some owners to speak up and attend a meeting when we set one up.

09-08-2008, 10:43 PM
