1997 Thunderbird Sport in Laser Red. Bought it new in '97 as my first new car. Traded in my wife's '90 3.8 bird. Took it for a test drive, accidentally burned the tires at a stoplight (I was used to 3.8 power) and knew this car was going to have to go home with me. AHHHH, a love story. We're still together and I don't see us parting ways anytime soon.

Tally: -moonroof motor and wiper motors replaced under 36K warranty
-Still on first set of replacement tires(BF Goodrich Touring TA's)
-Replaced plug wires with 8mm Ford Racing wires in Ford blue
-cleaned the MAF three times
-intake cracked at 68,000 miles, $500 dollar replacement by dealer
(not covered under recall as it cracked in the rear by the water outlet for the
heater core)
-Dynomax catback and K&N panel at 70,000 miles
-Reinhart chip, 180 stat, 22c plugs at 90,000 miles

JL took his to mid 13s on a 214,000 mile block, which still looked new after he tore it down... so I'd say with proper maintenance they can go a long way.
