BIRDs

OK, well I have both T/C and SC , great cars . each has their own style . I like the body of the 87-88 T/Cs and the nice ride and room of the SC . I own 5 Birds 3 are T/Cs and 2 SCs . most are 1 owner cars from the West coast . Got alot of stereo stuff in them and nice show paint . I do own the Watkins Glen speedway Pace car , the real thing , just did a resto on it and soon will be done 100% . NATO is a big site for T/C cars , but this site is great too and offer both styles of Birds , witch I thing is the best way , Some sites out there even go thru all the Bird years . SCya at some show someday , DW

I have a 87 TC, I am converting it to a 5sp and giving it to my brother. He needs it, as right now he has nothing to to a very bad soon to be ex-wife. She even illegally sold his '69 Mach 1 by forging his name while he was in the hospital... He loves the TC and we'll be fixing it up when I get back from Singapore.... Not to many 'birds on this side of the planet! (none, actually)

If there ever was a hell that woman shall be sent to it by the mighty hand of vengeance for taking a mans 69 mach 1. To me thats pretty cold so karmas a ***** she will get hers in the form of something very awful like maybe a wheelchair and a missing leg. Not wishing evil but again thats pretty cold hearted.

I have an '88. It had been sitting for several years when I bought it. It had no rear, a bad auto trans and a bad turbo. I have been driving it daily for 2 1/2 year.

Wow... There are quite a few of you guys in the KC area. We meet pretty regularly as a club. You can check us out mostly on the SCCoA midwest chapter forum. There are at least five of us that keep in touch (regularly) and about ten of us that straggle in for the events.

Soon to have some MHS parts, cams, 'luminum block, lower compression, ported heads, autorotor, and need to make long tubes. I have almost all the stuff and need some #42-50s a bypass valve, and maybe a few other things.

That's a pretty sweet car.

Hey Chris do you own a Bronco too?

How did I miss this thread.We used to have a 1988 TC.
It was my daughters first car we (Kinda) restored together.
I will have another someday, I regret selling hers.

Yeah, I have an 84 with a 357 (for the time being) and a 435 4spd. The engine is coming out and going into the 93 until I can get enough money to build the 3.8 the way I want it. Then I will put the 3.8 back in the SC and from the video above, I think you can figure out what I want to do with the small block.

BTW, I assume you know from seeing me on FSB.com?
