1996 Thunderbird - 2nd owner
I am a new kid on the block. After many years of wedded bliss, raising two kids and retiring after a 28 year career in data processing, I am slowly working my way back to something I have always enjoyed. PROJECT CAR!!!!!
I am the second owner of a no rust, meticulously cared for 1996 Thunderbird LX 3.8l that I purchased, now this is true, from an old lady who drove the snot out of this thing. A long family friend who offered this bird for sale after her husband died. It has 260000 +- a few.
This past weekend as I was going to a grandchild's sports game, it over-heated and apparently blew a head gasket or suffered from a cracked head or block. So, the swap from v6 to v8 4.6l, 8th vin digit X or H, may have been moved up by about a year.
I will no doubt be soliciting help from the forum community as I get into this thing.
