I have been around the Thunderbird scene with my LX for 3 years and have been around SCs for almost as long and now after 3 years I have my own 89 SC 5 speed. I know its stock and it could be faster with mods but I absolutely LOVE this CAR!!! I could run up through the gears with the sunroof open ALL DAY LONG!!! Plus I managed to outrun a CLK320 so that adds to the 'fun factor' Now the question is whether I can outrun my friends stock Lightning that has 141k miles.
