About 1/2 the time I will turn the key and nothing happens.No clicking or anything.The 2nd time I turn the key it cranks and starts like normal.It doesn't seem to be heat related as it does it in my air conditioned garage or in the 90 degree outside.Any ideas?

Could be several things (the obvious being battery connections, starter connections, etc.), but my initial thought is the ignition switch. Ford has a recall on several model years for replacement of faulty ignition switches. Depending on your model year, you could be covered for replacement from Ford. Somewhere on one of these Thunderbird SC sites there is a TSB/Recall list. Hope this helps......
