Description
In January 1994 I was driving a mint 1984 Lincoln Mark VII that was broad-sided by a hit-and-run driver. As a result, I had to buy a new car. I didn't want a Mustang, as they were too common, so I narrowed my choice between a Corvette or a Thunderbird SC. Corvettes of the same age were about $4-6k more than the SC, and I didn't want to be car poor. A local dealer advertised 9 "Executive Driven Demo" Thunderbird SCs for sale. I test-drove the 92 that I ended up buying. Purchased with only 11,608 miles. In the long run, the Corvette would have been cheaper I'm sure (and faster), but I would not have met the great friends that I have because of this car.

You did a lot of good work to this car, Kurt. Pretty awesome you fixed your transmission problems right before you got your lift installed!

This car has evolved quite a bit since I purchased it back in 1994. I doubt I will ever quit modifying it.

I finally had the fiberglass hood reworked and PAINTED!
