My 1995 Ford Thunderbird LX, equipped with a 4.6L OHC "Modular" V8 engine, rear-wheel drive and a healthy dose of torque built on the MN12 platform.
I have owned "Lightning" for about 2 years now as both my main project car and previously as my daily driver.
Even with some of the issues she had due on one part to poor previous ownership and on another to the harsh climate here. I really love this car for a lot of reasons and I find it impossible to let it go.
I just recently got her off the road to begin the resurrection project after I found another daily driver (1999 Ford Escort SE). One of the biggest parts of this challenge is not working on her though, it is actually demolishing the old garage and building a proper one in it's place, so that I can actually work on the project properly and safely.
I will post the to-do list of everything I am doing to Lightning on here eventually.
