Wow, what a mess!

Least you're getting it done! Where in Maine are you gonna race it? Or are you going to a track over in NH?

I own a place in Springfield up above Bangor (you know - the middle of nowhere); my family is all from Sumner.

Wow, what are the odds! Right south of Bangor, isn't it? Next time I get up that way, I'll have to stop by and see your car!

Oh you mean like this:





What makes you think your car is 92 Thunderbird Sport?..


It appears to be a 93 Thunderbird LX w/ 5.0 V8..



It has or had the 93-96 6 gauge Cluster..
1991-1996 Thunderbird or Cougar 6 Gauge Cluster.jpg
Notice the orientation of the Volts and Fuel gauge..


Your Thunderbird also has the Windshield Washer Fluid Reservoir next to the Radiator up front..Exclusive to a 93-97 Thunderbird/Cougar..


Not all MN12 Thunderbird's with a 5.0 are Sports..



I hope that clears up any confusion you had thinking you had a Sport..

;)

I used 2x3's on the inside of the car where the role cage would go.
Welded the rear to where the rear met. in front of where the K mounts.

to far forward can't get trany out.:zdunno:
