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.....

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.

I love my new car

I just bought a red '93 Thunderbird SC as MY first car, my last car was an '87 saab that my dad gave me. I bought my SC for $2,450 with 130,000 miles, my dad thought i was retarded for buying it because there's no room under the hood to do anything, but i love the car and i'ts now mine - he wants to drive it all the time though, i will never let him. For the audio system, i've put in a Rockford Fosgate 9300 CD/MP3 player, 2-12" Rockford Fosgate Punch Z 400 watt subs and a Rockford Fosgate 300S amp. I also put in some Eurolite Xenon crystal blue headlights and GTS headlight covers. I want to get together with some SC owners around the south-eastern MA and RI area, i live in South Attleboro MA. By the way, i love the Ram-Air hoods, are they functional?

90 White SC with 65000 miles

Hey everyone,
I finally found a Super Coupe in my area that was in decent conduction. I really love this car. I previously had registered a 90 Tbird coupe. It always drove excellent but the new rid with the super charger is totally different and far superior.

The new ride came to me totally stock. There's two items that need fixing. The A/C is out and the subwoofer distorts, so I'm looking for advise from some experienced people on those two items.

Here's the car.. anybody know what it would retail for?

wheel Hopping

Hello I have had a 90 35th anniversary with a 5 speed for about 2 weeks. Is there a way to stop wheel hopping or make not as bad? Any help is very appreciated.

The easiest solution is to put some good rubber on Find some 225/60/16 ZR...speed rated tires. Its what came on the cars from the factory. They will help but not elliminate wheel hop.
Many SC owners wore out the original tires and opted to put cheaper rubber on...not the best idea for performance type driving.
Also there are improved bushings for the suspension.
If nothing else check out the bushings/IRS and rear suspension for damage & replace with the better bushings
