    1990 5 speed anni

    My favorite is my 92 automatic, rae or not, I've had it 15 years. I just found a 90 anniversary 5 speed but I am parting it out so it will never be driven. One of these days I would like one that can be.

    I have had both. Currently I have a black 94' 5-speed in gorgeous condition, but I might trade for a 90' if it were as nice. The things I prefer on the 90' are as follows: Better 1st and 2nd gear ratio, deeper lumbar seats, rear bumber cover, and for some reason (which I haven't investigated) the steering seemed to have a faster ratio.

    According to the action both my cars get in the rare occasion I go to a car show I hope they will all be highly sought after cars. My vote is the later model sc 5-speed, only 2 years of production with that body style and they made more power. I think we have at least 15-20 years before seeing a thunderbird on the road is pretty rare, that's when we will see if they are something special to the world or we are still having the same conversation. I don't see any combination of thunderbird bring as much money as the 95 5- speed in general right now, so it gets my vote.

    I voted 94-95 5 sp. I am partial considering my 94 is a 5sd I really do not like the interiors of the 89-93 birds.

    I have neither a 35th or 94/5 5spd. I didn't vote cause I want to get both eventually.

    I don't know, I'd love to have either one...or both

    Personally I'd rather have a 1989-1990 Cougar SC, because they are more rare than Thunderbird SC's

    As a whole yes but the '94 SC had the fewest total number of cars produced according to productions numbers taken off of this site.

    I like the 94/5 5 speed but have owned several anny cars too. I just do not like the suede inserts texture. Otherwise I like the two tone int/ ext set up. Both very nice cars.

    A 94/95 5-spd is definitely the rarest particular SC, and I've heard they are slightly better-performing than the rest of the Thunderbird SC's.

    I totally agree with you, I was just getting at how of the approx. 1.5 million MN12 cars, only approx. 70,000 are Super Coupes and of those, only 8,388 are 94/95 Thunderbird SC's and 8,592 are Cougar SC's.

    I just felt that Cougar SCs should be mentioned since they are practically as rare as 94/95 SC's (including automatics)

    In my dream car shopping list, I'd want to get a 1995 SC 5-spd, a 35th Anny with a Many-Tranny , and a 1989 5-spd Cougar (year that the SC was Motor-Trend Car of the Year)
