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.

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

Connected cars are coming en-masse. We know this much. How, though, remains something of an open question, especially as two of the world's largest tech companies are preparing to battle for control of your car's dashboard. On the one hand, we have Apple and its CarPlay system. And now, we know what Google has been working on with Auto Link.

Its new name is Android Auto, and yes, it's based off the Android architecture that is the primary challenger to Apple's iOS mobile operating system. Announced at Google's I/O conference today, Android Auto functions similarly to CarPlay - owners will need to plug their smartphones into their cars to access the full breadth of capability.
In Android Auto's case, that means a wealth of voice controls to limit distracted driving. Google's marquee apps will be available when the interface arrives in production models later this year, including Google Play Music, Google Maps and voice-activated texting and text playback. Meanwhile, developers will be able to begin designing custom apps for the new system via an upcoming software development kit.
Ford must be desperate to get itself ready for the beach this summer because it is really trying to get into shape. Shortly after unveiling the Lightweight Concept that cut the weight of a Fusion down to that of a Fiesta, it's now the rest of the line's turn for improvement. The company is wrapping up a 10-year research project aimed at developing next-gen automotive batteries to improve efficiency.

Ford claims that 70 percent of its lineup will have stop/start tech by 2017. The key to this massive proliferation is its new dual-battery system that combines a lithium-ion battery with a lead-acid one and regenerative braking. The setup works by harvesting braking energy and converting it to electricity. When the vehicle stops, the engine shuts off, but the Li-ion battery has enough juice to keep the accessories running. The engine starts up again as drivers take their foot off the brake. The layout would mean less wasted gas while idling. It's already available on Ford hybrids and is somewhat similar to the i-Eloop capacitor-based system from Mazda.
The bigger challenge is tuning the regenerative braking right. While hybrid drivers may be a little more adventurous, when it comes to getting a hang of regen braking, conventional buyers might not be so open-minded. The systems have a tendency to be a little grabby at first and then taper off at very low speeds. Ford needs to make sure it's just right to avoid turning off buyers.
YouGov's mid-year Brand Index rankings of America's best perceived brands has been released, and Ford has found its way to the top. The Dearborn, Michigan based manufacturer beat out online shopping giant Amazon, The History Channel, and home improvement superstore Lowe's, to take the top spot.
Ford jumped from sixth overall in 2012 to first for 2013, but those that have been watching these rankings shouldn't be hugely surprised. Ford was rated the best perceived automotive manufacturer by the same organization last year. The Blue Oval's success on the overall brand rankings is made all the more impressive by the complete lack of other automakers on the list.
YouGov (that is, survey respondents) cited Ford's first quarter of 2013 business, which saw an increase in market share and the best earnings recorded in over 10 years. Successfully launching the Focus and Fusion (pictured) and keeping them fresh in the minds of consumers has also contributed to Ford's best overall score.
