Beautiful and fun car marred by gaskets
By JS on
1993 Ford Thunderbird LX 2dr Coupe
My very first car, and I loved her. Excellent slow speed handling and turning radius. Quick off the line but slow to 60. Wobbly on the highway. Had the notorious head gasket failure at around 70k miles. Otherwise, just minor sensor issues and a leaky radiator.
Comfort and looks. Never driven a better long distance rural cruiser. Stunk on the highway, but handling at low speeds and general comfort level made long distance rural driving a blast. Loose steering contributed to this enjoyment.
Needed more power, reliable head gaskets. Cheap plastic dash in a beautiful car felt out of place.
