Hello all

I've noticed in a lot of your sigs that many of you are also Tbird owners. I have a 94 V6 LX Tbird, just picked up a 2007 Fusion SEL V6 last week. I cant help but wonder, Just how many Tbird owners are there on here?

My dad had one when I was a kid, I called it the batmobile (I was a big batman fan) it was black of course inside and out with velour seats. Not sure which engine he had. I think it was a turbocharged engine probably an I4 he bought it brand new about the same age as I am now (18) he bought a tbird I bought the fusion. Both of us bought brand new. 8)

Also the salesman I bought my car from owns a thunderbird and a fusion.

My parents had a 1978 Cougar with a 351. I remember a little since I was only one when they got it. Dark blue with the orange vinyl trim on the roof/B/C-pillars.

Found a similar car online - http://files.conceptcarz.com/img/Mercury/78_mercury_cougar_xr7_pvgp_04_dv_02.jpg

Had some fun with FN-10 Mark VIIIs back in the early to mid-90s...same platform as the MN-12 1989 T-bird. My dad had 3D CAD drawings of the '89 Cougar/Bird in 1983 that he brought home for my brother and I to color with crayons.

I had a 1995 4.6L V8 TBird, black with leather and moonroof. It was a fantastic car, with hood struts, a hydraulic dampened glove box, soft-touch plastics, and a very contemporary wrap-around dash. The V8 was only a $500 option! I bought it for a little less than $17k on the Ford A Plan. I still miss that car. You could shift it from D into 2nd gear at 4800rpm and it would chirp the wheels nicely. You could also lock it into 1st and 2nd gears when you pleased and the OD off button was right at your fingertips on the shifter. I had a Superchips module which greatly increased the shift firmness and added about 200rpm to the shift points. It was a nice ride, but by 60,000 miles the trans was starting to go south and I really wanted a truck so I traded it in on a new 1997 F150. I still have the truck with 220,000 miles on it. Too bad Ford never made an SVT version with the Lincoln Mark VIII engine and a manual. I almost ordered the SC but didn't care for the old 3.8L V6 even with the supercharger. I wanted the newer 4.6 and its great sound effects + super smooth operation. But that early 4.6 engine did have a very narrow powerband for a V8. It would come alive at 3000rpm but the party was over at 5000rpm. It was slower than a manual Escort off the line. I would compare the power to a Pontiac Grand Prix with the 3.8, both rated around 200hp.

I know exactly what you mean over there. I've was one of the first 30 members back in the mid 90s when it was called BirdCats. I also got tired of the BS there and pulled my sponsorship last month. I still have my 92 5.0 Sport and it looks better than new still but is getting a new drive train.

My best friend had a red '90 Thunderbird V6. That thing was a tank that sounded like a jet. We had so many adventures in the car. Good times.

After I graduated from high school I bought my 5.0 mustang lx and a friend bought a T-Bird super coupe, that thing was very close to as fast as the mustang, I was pretty impressed with that little supercharged v6, with the combination of power and luxury.

I have owned six T'Birds over the years, including '84 and '87 Turbo Coupes, and an '89 Super Coupe (a great road car!). However, the one I've owned the longest still sits in the garage next to my Fusion. It's a little older than most of the ones that have been discussed in this thread, and I enjoy taking it out to the Woodward Dream Cruise every year!

Here's a pic:
