    I'll try to get some pictures of it this week with a digital camera. Hopefully it will show it pretty well.

    As far as the balljoints and motor mounts.. I orderd some Tokico Struts and Tokico Springs. When I go to put those in, I'm replacing the ball joints, all suspension bushings with poly, and gonna drop in some new motor mounts

    is it one of the 2 birds in the trunklid's reflectors? or down on the bumper, maybe one of the reflector emblems on the trunklid is loose and is moving somehow?

    A loose emblem on the tail light? Good lord...

    The emblem is inside the bumper. In the center of the vent area in the bottom of the bumper. It isn't there when the car is still.. when the car is moving.. air forces it downward and it spins on an axis.

    So you can see it tucked up in there somewhere when it's parked?

    Weird. Take a pic if you can.

    Ok.. here's the deal.. You can't see anything resembling a T-bird logo when its parked. I crawled up under there and saw nothing. The only think I found was a black plastic flap...

    Tonight I went out driving with a camera.. I must have took about 50 pictures.. and the picture can't seem to grab it. It doesn't spin.. it looks more like a strobing light in the shape of a logo.

    I think it has something to do with that flap.. and its directing light at some reflector when the car is at higher speeds. I worked on another SC today at work that was a 1992.. He had that plastic flap. Where you see the logo is right where that plastic flap is. My guess is that it is a factory thing.. just no one ever notices because they arn't driving behind their vehicle, and other people don't think anything of it.

    You all should check it out.

    Yeah.. its only visable at night time. Looks like it reflects your headlights back at you.
