I have dreamed about owning another T Bird since I traded mine 25 years ago for a mustang. Regretted it ever since. My son has a 88 5.0 he got as his first car. It had 89000 on it. He found this car for me in Sylva NC where he is going to college. The man kept it garaged all its life. It had 44607 on it when I got it a month ago. It's caused some problems with my wife but you only live once and sometimes your wants are more important than your needs😁

Thanks. Gonna enjoy many good times with my son and his 88 at some car shows in the near future. We are a classic car family and this is a crown jewel.

I'm in the Charlotte area, btw, not far from Gastonia. When my Tbird is back on the road, we should meet up sometime at a car show or something.
