I'm 32 and bought my sc in 05 with 86k it was a garage kept one owner trade in and do to a major pricing error I bought it for 2900$ I believe it only has 105k on it today. I was always really picky about it never let anyone eat drink or smoke in it. Never has it been on a gravel road or driven in the snow. And it's always been garaged (with the exception of now it's sitting in front of my garage lol) I knew nothing about sc's and saw it at a car lot I drove past everyday. I stopped in to to look at it and the guy tossed me the keys and said "be careful that. Damn thing is fast!" I took it for a drive and fell in love e first time I floored it! Well I didn't have e 4900$ they wanted but I sure kept thinking about it! Couple weeks later I drove by and it said 2900$ on the windshield ! I stopped in and told the guy I'd take it and had to go find some money! I asked why the r educed price? He said "what are you talking about?" when I told him that he had dropped his price by 2000$ he about had a heart atack! Apparently the guy that washed all his cars had mixed up the price of the sc and a geo tracker sitting beside it when he put the prices on the windshields. The guy was honest and told me he'd honor that price not a penny less if I could come back with the money in 2hrs! I ended up going to the bank and having to use my crappy Honda and my crappy truck for collateral because the load value on the sc was like 1500$ lol my wife was pissed that I bought a car without talking to her (until she saw it lol)
im 37 and bought my first sc in 1998. my story is similar to yours.i was 23 and wanted a buick gn in the worst way. my dad talked me out of it and took me to the local ford dealer. i noticed a black 90 tbird with the sc embossed on the front and back bumper and wondered what it stood for? the salesman said it was a supercoupe it had a turbo! i asked him to pop the hood and what do i see the 3.8 top with what looks to be a blower ! much to my surprise. i took it for a test drive and was hooked . never knew what an sc was till that day. i no longer have that car as i bought my 93 with 33k in 2001. and now has 107k :) needless to say im glad my dad talked me out of getting a gn :)

I've had my 94 bird for goin on 2 years now it'll be 3 years in July 2013 (bought it when i was 21), and this is probably the car I've put the most time and money into.....My buddy took me for a ride in it, (when it was stock) and I ended up buying it from him a few months later! Now I've had 2, kept the first one and used the second one for parts :D

First 1989 XR7 I saw was red with ground effects. It was in front of the Autozone on Pat Booker Road in Universal City Tx. A Msgt from Randolph AFB was driving it. I was 18 and wished I could own one.At the time I was driving a beat up 67 Cougar XR7 with a 351c 2v that I had stuffed in it with a junkyard c4. Years later Im on my third mn12 and trying to do it right this time.

I'll be 31 in a few weeks. I have had an SC since I was 16 years old, still have the same one. Over the years I've acquired more.

old fart?

seems most of the young whipper snappers here weren't born yet when the SC's hit the street.

I'm an old fart- and us old farts will either out drive you into submission or

we will just flat out kick your ~~~ for disrespecting us.

Remember, without us 'old farts'- you may not have been in existence....

:D

turned 60 this year...... So..... let's see.... (takes off shoes and socks....) Yea, still just enough fingers and toes to fit in the 40+ category.....

Wanted an 89 5 speed from the first time I saw the ad for it. But kids, med school, houses, business delayed that until 5 years ago....

I got my 94 sc when i was 20, fell in love with it right away. Owned it five years now, hate when it gets called a thunderchicken or the super poop. But after you put the pedal down that usually stops.

I feel like I need to go back and change my initial answer now as I've moved into a new age bracket since I answered the poll years ago lol

I was 29 when I bought my first SC, a 95 5-speed. Sold it when I was 38. Big mistake! Bought my current 95 5-speed 13 years ago, when I was 42. Sold it when I was...oh wait...I will NEVER sell it!!! :)

I bought my T-Bird SC exactly a month ago and I haven't driven it yet... It'll be a real treat once she's all fixed up to be a daily driver :)

Replying to myself, :D
I had just turned 19 when I got my 1991 SC 5-speed with moonroof (Oxford White paint, Titanium Leather interior) back in 2012. Since I’ve bought this car, I went to community college. Then in May of 2015, when my 1991 was giving me many problems, I bought a 1990 SC 5-speed (Oxford White paint, Blue Cloth interior). This was my daily-ish driver for years. I got my Associates Degree in Business MGMT, transferred to Reinhardt University, got my BS in Business Admin and graduated in 2019. The 1991 blew its head-gaskets that summer and (with the help of my mechanic friend), got the head-gaskets changed. In the fall, I bought a 1993 SC 5-speed (Oxford White paint, Black Leather interior) that was presumed to have blown head gaskets. To my amazement, the head gaskets were fine... for about 10 months then they blew. I had the head gaskets replaced during the summer of this year and have put on over 1,000 miles since the change. I’m now 27 years old and still own 3 Oxford White SCs with 5-speeds.

I’m honestly considering putting a roll-cage in one next year and taking stunt-driving classes (you don’t use your own car for the classes, btw). I was going to spruce one up to be as nice, clean, and show-worthy as possible, and the third would be a spare. I know I promised I would start filming Youtube videos this year, but I promise, as my New Year’s resolution to begin filming something in 2021. Things are shaping up, I’ve got over $1,000 worth of parts to install and I’ve thought long-and-hard about my story since my last update post. Hopefully I can deliver a quality video series prominently featuring a Supercoupe starting next year. Its a story that means a lot to me and that has been evolving since before I bought my first Supercoupe. I’ve grown a lot since then, even though I’m still in the 19-30 year old group. Hopefully all those years of frustration and hoarding MN12 parts will amount to something meaningful.

Thanks for reading :)
Happy New Year!
