    All of them beautiful cars...I've had a few.

    Still have my '86 Escort GT, have an '84 Coupe, a '90 hatch, an '89 5.0 convertible that is donating most of it's drivetrain to the '84, and of course my bastard Thunderbird, that has parts from about 8 or 9 other cars.

    I even had a Taurus, but it was just a lowly 3.8 car that needed some serious work...I junked it. I think I lost 500 dollars on that car lol.

    Nice little writeup. I wish I could buy a new 87-88 Thunderbird turbo. Even if it was around 30k, It'd buy one. Albeit, it would have to look exactly like the 87/88 on the exterior. I saw a ford sponsored forum of sorts, and ford said they'd build them again, but they needed 15,000 pre-orders or something like that. I had only have my 88 for a month, I was 15 and I couldn't commit to the 5,000 or 7,500 non refunable deposit. Never able to find it again.

    Maybe someday factory five will make a kit car, hahahah. Would love another 87/88, but they're aren't many nice ones, and those that are just aren't worth $10,000

    Only those of who have swapped in a full HO engine

    Reminds me of a guy I briefly knew....he told me one day (since I was wearing a Ford hat) that the new Mustang (this was early 1994, the SN95's were just out) had a Boss 302 engine....he shut up when I told him that the Boss 302 was only available in 1969 and 1970, and these Mustangs weren't worth putting that engine in. He argued with me...said he'd seen one.

    "You can't fix stupid."


    I ended walking away.
