Hey, just thought I'd introduce myself. I am the proud owner (again) of a '95 Thunderbird LX after crashing the one I bought new in 1995. At the time I had many suspension parts in that Thunderbird and was preparing to do more to it. Blessing in disguise, I suppose, the replacement had almost 100,000 less miles on it, interior was better, etc. But I have now had all the useful bits transferred across (brakes, JBA headers, springs/shocks/struts, 16" rims/tires) along with installing new supercoupeperformance bushings almost everywhere, one of their Griffin radiators, a Truetrac differential, the automatic transmission has been J-Modded (the "mild" version), Kenwood stereo, dual exhaust, I'm getting it to that point where it will be as it should have been from Ford. Heads still need to be done, just found out that I should get '96+ NPI heads for this thing and now a one-piece driveshaft. The more I learn, the more I learn that I need to learn, hahahaaha. I finally figured out the color it will be painted, too.

I used to read this forum on and off, many years ago I actually attended a TCCOA meet-up in Fullerton(?). That was cool, wish there were more opportunities to hang around with MN-12 owners in L.A. I thought I'd registered for this forum years ago but apparently not. Better late than never, I guess.

When I bought the first Thunderbird new it was my first new car and I wanted a muscle car. The choices for V8/2-door/rear-wheel-drive were slim, I thought the Thunderbird looked pretty good, it had the same silhouette as a '70s muscle car (Torino, Challenger), I just wished it didn't have the melted cheese nose and tail that all modern cars have (I can almost see the separate bumpers and valance panels that might exist there...). But now, looking at the replacement car, I like the shape even more. And it's not as fat as the current Mustangs/Camaros/Challengers with their high belt lines.
