SCCoA Super Coupe Club of America: Dedicated to the preservation and performance of the Thunderbird Super Coupe - 1989-1995


Super Coupe Club of America> SC of the Month > February 1999

Dick Adams' 1995 Thunderbird SC

This car is the second SC I have owned. The first was a 1989 5-speed. Between the 1989 and my 1995 I owned a 1993 Ford Taurus SHO (great engine looking for a car) and a 1994 Ford Explorer. I was on the verge of trading my SC on a Mustang Cobra when I read in Super Ford magazine that Bill Hull was starting a Super Coupe club. I called Bill and joined the club. Shortly after that my wife Judy and I attended the first SC meet in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and as they say "the rest is history".

We have attended every club event that has been held. The great thing about these events, besides all the great looking SCs are the super people we have met. I have recently started a Super Coupe Club of the Carolinas Chapter of the SCCoA to serve members living in/near North and South Carolina. We plan on holding a kick-off meeting in the Spring when the weather opens up.

In addition to the SCCoA meets, the car has been shown in numerous events and local car shows. Listed below is the awards the car has won.
