obviously nothing with with a 5.0 powered TBird, I wouldn't trade my 97 for one though.
And yes, my 89 has been more reliable and stable than my 97.
89 = head gasket replacement
97 = two blown intakes
I want two 5.0 powered MN12s, one to drive, one to take the engine out of for my 63 Falcon. A 5.0HO out of a Rustang still commands a premium that I am not willing to pay. I wouldn't want to take a running 5.0 TBird off the road just for the engine ether though...
