Hey everyone, I'm sad to see it go but I'm selling my 1990 35th Anniversary Thunderbird SC. The car runs and drives perfectly fine. Just had it out today, (3/9) to make sure everything was working properly. The motor and supercharger are strong and the trans is shifting fine. One hose clamp needs to be replaced to the water pump, slight leak. The car has been in storage since November. The paint is good except for a few spots of rot, nothing major as you can see in pictures. The interior plastics are becoming separated from age, nothing is cracked though. It is only present on the dash and a door panel. Minor wear inside the car is present but nothing major. The back seats have some minor stains in the suede but I believe it can be cleaned. Any other problem areas I have show in the pictures. Please email me with any questions you may have, or come see it!
New crank sensor
New brakes all around including new rear calipers
Tires are 75% Goodyear Eagle RSA's
Wheels repainted a few years ago
3 1/2 inch cold air intake (I have the original parts)
The rear ride control is not functioning, It is stuck on firm setting (does not affect driving)
The cruise control is not turning on, possibly a fuse but I'm not sure
The original head unit is blown but I still have it
The gauges need to be replaced because the tachometer is not reading properly.
Right rear speaker is blown as well as factory subwoofer.
Soaring Spirit book
Factory Floor mats in plastic

I'd prefer someone to pick up the car on their own, and I encourage taking a look before bidding.

General Motors isn't the only Detroit automaker posting falling profits in the first quarter. Ford just released its Q1 2014 financial data, and it reported a net income of $989 million, down $622 million from Q1 2013. The drop is partially blamed on higher warranty and recall expenses than the company had anticipated.

Financially, Ford suffered a rough quarter almost across the board. Its pre-tax profit of $1.4 billion was also down $765 million from a year ago. Things were even worse in the North American market where operating profit fell significantly to $1.5 billion, down from $2.392 billion in Q1 2013. However, its global revenue ticked up slightly to $35.9 billion, from $35.6 billion in this period in 2013.
Ford admitted that it spent about $900 million on expenses that it hadn't planned for during this quarter. According to Reuters, the company paid about $400 million in additional warranty and recall costs in North America. The automaker didn't explain why the costs were so much higher than expected. However, in the last three months, Ford has had several recalls, including on the 2001-2004 Escape for rust, Explorer for its steering, Edge for its fuel line and others.
Lincoln fans might want to give incoming Ford CEO Mark Fields a pat on the back for having a hand in saving the brand from the chopping block last year. He's among the people spearheading the rejuvenation of the division away from its stodgy image to appeal to younger customers.

According to two unnamed sources speaking to Bloomberg, CEO Alan Mulally was ready to kill Lincoln last year. Following the slow production ramp-up of the MKZ combined a with a costly ad campaign, Mulally was frustrated and openly suggested dropping the brand. However, Fields and Jim Farley, Ford's marketing boss, convinced the CEO that the brand was worth saving. They also created a plan to prevent similar problems for new models in the future.
It seems that one part of the strategy may involve waiting until new models are at dealers before starting a big ad campaign for them. Lincoln global director, Matt VanDyke, recently told Autoblog that the division is holding off on a full marketing push behind the new MKC crossover to prevent the supply problems that plagued the MKZ last year. Its big offensive begins in the fall when the CUVs are at all of the dealers and consumers are at home watching more TV. VanDyke also told Bloomberg that Fields, Farley and Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of the Americas, have more direct oversight over new product launches now.
There was more than a bit of public indigence following the recent story of Enterprise Rent-A-Car billing a customer $47,000 to replace a Ford Mustang GT Convertible stolen from a Nova Scotia lot. To recap: Kristen Cockerill rented the Mustang for two days, returned it to the lot on a Sunday and left the keys in a secure dropbox only for Enterprise employees to find the car gone the next day.
Despite Enterprise policies stating that customers are responsible for vehicles dropped on off-days, the company has admitted that the situation could've been handled a bit better.
In a recent statement, Enterprise has backed off the big-bill story, and claims to be working with Cockerill and her insurance company to resolve the issue. Further, the Enterprise general manager overseeing Nova Scotia has spoken with the harried renter, and apologized "for the way this claim was handled during the last few months."
