    Talking New To This Site

    Recently purchased a 89 sc 5 speed with less than 80k on the clock. It's white with gray interior, completely rust free! I plan on doing some mods to it in the near future.

    Love the sight!

    Thanks for the welcome. I bought a 95 5spd, pearl white w/ tan leather interior. Looked for about a 1 1/2 years in all the classifieds and I really wanted the 95 w/ 5spd do to its low production number. They were either to expensive or totally beat on, if I knew about this site I am sure I would have found something sooner. Well I found mine 2 miles from my house at a buy here pay here for 3900, all and all I thought it was a good deal. Drove it for 2 months, the supercharger belt was rubbing on that u shaped little hose, rubbed through it and the car got hot (Fla summer) and it has been sitting in my driveway since august. Tired of looking at it while it sits there but when I am done redoing it she'll be awesome. Even in stock form the car seemed well balanced and the 5 spd made it a really fun car to drive as I like to shift my cars. I Plan on holding on to her forever or until she turns into dust but with proper car and no accidents she should out live me. Thanks again

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!

    Couldn't help but notice the Icons on your thread. Fabulous. First show, 1975, Golden Gate Park. (I was 5, mom took me.) Anyway, a friend told me he had a car for my girlfriends' daughter. I asked what kind, he didn't know. Some old Ford, left by his ex. I thought oh great, a Taurus or something, but said I'd look it over. Surprise! 92 SC!! Metallic black!!! Good condition, just really filthy. Blown head gasket. After sitting four years in his yard like that, I put the jumpers on it and it fired after like three cranks. The car has spirit and wants to live again. He just gave it to me, and had it towed to my house! I am in love. I am excited. What a car! It cleaned up nice. I started breaking down the motor today. I'm gonna do the gasket kit for now, providing everything else (other than the stated issues) looks good. I've had cars I was proud of before, but this is different. My girlfriends' daughter isn't getting it. I'll find her a Toyota. I may need advice, so I'll be sure to update for ya. I can't wait to get this rock rolling!

    great find, there is alot of information on the site here to properly do the head gaskets so they dont blow again, and also ways to make sure it will run forever. The next step would be to pay the 15$ membership to get access to the rest of the forums. Also do post up pictures its always nice seeing an sc being restored back to the roads!!

    Did I read that right, someone smacked your car?! Thats' awful. Hope its' fixable. I'll take some pictures and post 'em for lookieloos. I plan on paying the 15 bucks, just haven't done so yet. After a good days' work on the bird, stripping it down to the heads, I started getting overwhelmed and down on myself a bit, while sitting on the couch like three hours later! Oh my god, can I put it back together right? There's so much stuff. I've got skills and I'm handy. Maybe I'm just tired and neurotic. Gotta go to work, make money, pay for this project. Check in later tonight.

    yes my car was totalled and no its not repairable, there was over 8 grand in damage. Also when i had to tear apart part of my engine its good to take alot of pictures, and also go buy a sharpie marker, and some zip lock baggies. Place bolts in the bags, and label them. Also if it will help draw little diagrams as to what bolts went where and how many just in case something misses the bag. Doing this raised my confidence alot and made the reassembly process alot easier and stressfree!! Alternatly if you do get stuck post something in the tech thread as there will be many people willing to help you and give advice from previous experience!

    Cool New to SC ownership and here.

    I just bought a very clean 1990 SC and it runs great had it inspected by a mechanic and the car is in mint condition. The previous owner was the original owner, very well maintained vehicle. I have affectionately named the car the Scuba Coupe after the fact that my nephew calls me Scuba Steve. lol Anyhow, I love the car and have already planned a few major upgrades. I will be looking to you all for support in what would be best since this is my first supercharged vehicle.

    New To SC's but, Third T-Bird.

    I purchased my SC from CaifanSC in the middle of Sep. It's a beautiful car in the interior and I'm currently fixing the engine. The paint is a little ruff but for some reason dark colors for Ford were in the mid 90's. I just paypal'ed my dues in and can hardly wait for them to take affect so I can get on the members only section.
