The B-pillars were driving me nuts with the paint flaking off. I didn't do the best job but rattle canned some paint on them for the time being so I don't twitch anymore.
I've put about 3000 miles on it this summer and just did another oil change. I need to get it in for an alignment since the front tires are showing some outside wear. Slowly collecting parts to update the brakes and rear suspension. there's a new noise in the front so might be working on the front too.
I went to a car show in Prospect, CT Sunday. Over 500 cars there. I was the only Fox body Thunderbird there.
I really like the 04-08's. The 09-14's kinda turned me off. But the 15+ they really sharpened them up. And that's a great shade of blue.
Thanks! My previous daily vehicles (2) were white. I needed a change bad and couldn't resist my favorite color. I checked around with some online friends, some of which work at Ford, and they said 16+ newer were good. Not that '15 was bad but it was a first year model and had some problems as they all do (every brand). Today, I turn in my leased '16 Sierra. It has been a good truck but a few things had me wondering. I am sure it will treat someone else well.
Sorry I didn't mean to start the debate on warm up of vehicles. Next should I ask what kind of oil to use? LOL
I am lazy and don't like to scrape the windows in the morning during the winter/cold months. I just use the starter when I walk out the door of the house so it might run 1 minute during the summer before I start driving.
That sounds like great mileage to me! My 06 Silverado 6.0 is a gas eater!
But it has torque!!! I do notice the 5.0 in this compared to the 5.3 in my old truck has a little less torque down low so it needs to downshift earlier. Traffic was bad last night and I got stuck in standstill too. Dropped down to 17.9 mpg and now with the ride back to work it is at 19.2 at mid 90 some miles. If I did out by hand I am certain it would be lower since I have been using the remote starter to warm it up.
