    Congratulations to ALL new SC owners!

    You made a good move! Best of luck if you just bought an SC, or Cougar XR-7!! Great cars.....I absolutely LOVE my Super Coupe! I had a 1985 Turbo Coupe back in 1986, it was a great car, and it started my Thunderbird love affair! They can be money pits if you choose to "do all the mods" but the satisfaction I get from my 90 is well worth the occaisional headache! Good luck all!

    Sounds like a good deal to me! You'll have to post some pics when you get done!! I'm surprised the SC didn't al least give you a runm maybe it had some problems, or a whimpy driver!! LOL

    Best of luck with your XR-7,
    -Jeff

    PS-I got 120k on my 90 SC, and it STILL runs great!

    Black Lights

    Hey guys,

    Just wondering where I can get black headlights, or what I can do to give them that blacked out look. My bird is black, and I think it'd look pretty sick with black covers or something, and super whites behind them. Also, what do you think a black SC would look like with the 35th Anniv. rims on it? Thanks.

    Really like the hood on the red Super Coupe, may want to do that to my new ride, mentioned in earlier post; a 91 Red SC, 5 spd.
    Will take delivery this week.

    All original, well maintained, 120K miles, runs great.

    I want to hook up with some other SC fans in the Florida area or at least the Southeast. I was just at Turkey Rod Run Thanksgiving, had no clue I would be finding this 91 SC even though I've been watching the car for 11 years. Fellow worker at Siemens in Orlando.

    Anyway, he bought new car, put his 91 SC up for sale; I'm the lucky new owner.

    Hey Camp89 i believe our SC's require a steady diet of Premium Gas. depending where you live is what octane grade they will offer.. 93 octane is good, but some states offer 91 octane as premium.. the reason for higher octane is because of the supercharger, if you put gas that is less than premium you'll get detonation and that will kill your engine, possibly even break the pistons.....

    Thumbs up

    As the the proud new father of a 3800 lb. (Baby SC) Black w/ grey leather w/ automatic I can say that this website was very instumental in my finding the exact car that I wanted since the ad was in your clasified section. It was also very helpful in securing the research that I needed for information on this vehicle. Everyone was very forthcoming with helpful and insightful information about the MN12. Thanks to all of the guys that replied to and are still repling to my questions.
