I''ve had several Fords and two T- Bird. My first was an `85 that lost an argument with a snow plow. I ordered a bright red 1989, but it came it was white; I said I'd take it only if they painted it red. They refused but ordered it again; I received it as a 1990. I wasn't disappointed. Great looking, great handling (smaller turning radius than my wife's Subaru). Living in Chicago and New York I mainly drove my T-Bird long distances, and they were dream drives. I once rented a non-SC for 3 weeks while shooting a Rte. 66 documentary. It was good, but my SC was far better. Wish I had it now, but times changed and I aged, so I donated it to charity.
Power, handling, looks, not necessarily in that order.
Better paint job on the bumpers. Every time somebody bumped me, the paint cracked, even with the "flex" included. My biggest suggestion would be to bring it back, and make me 21 again, the way I felt while driving it.
I bought this car on my birthday, and the five speed is awesome. I have killed many a Mustang in this car. It was very advanced for its age, and well thought out! Some people complain about the head gaskets. I would rather replace those than the whole engine block! Moonroof, cd player, power everything, ke, auto belts, very smooth ride and turning!
CD player, moonroof, 5 speed, pretty much everything is perfect!
Cupholders, not a single one. I guess Ford didn't want anyone to drink and drive
I have owned this car since 1991. Drove
in in hard winters--repainted it once
and got a new bumpter. The only thing
that went wrong in 13yrs was an
alternator, an oil leak and cosmetic
stuff. The engine runs terrific---
still can go 100 up a big hill with no
issue :) These are great and fun cars--
if you are ever thinking of buying
one. Its just kind of sad this car is
considered "old"..I remember when I
first drove it up to work and it turned
peoples heads...now people look at it
and turn their head (hahah)
ergonomics for driver, auto seats,
320ft/lbs torque, big trunk, fold down
trunk seat (35th ann edition)
no auto seatbelts (almost chopped head
off plus now the thing is stuck
in "ding ding ding" land)
