1997 Ford Thunderbird LX
Hey guys! Well I'm now the proud owner of a 97 Thunderbird LX 4.6! My buddy was awesome and gave it to me after he let it sit for 5 years because well...he's a car guy and had too many cars and projects and I needed a ride.The car only has 72k, some bits of rust here and there but fixable. So I went and dropped $800 on tuneup parts. Air filter, plugs, wires, fuel filter, oil and oil filter, wipers, coolant, and the list goes on to brakes, calipers and rotors. Well I would post pictures but Underbird is in the shop. I had her for a week and blew the front right brakeline in front of the wheel well and she's creaking and cracking on every turn so I'm guessing bushings or maybe bad ball joint. This car is my daily now and I dont have time to do all the work that needs to be done. So yeah I took her to the shop. I am relatively new to working on cars so this is my learning. This forum comes up every question I google and I love it. My buddy is a mechanic and I've been driving him nuts with questions so I've chosen to come here and talk with you fine people. Seeing and hearing about your projects have made me even more excited to start to build this bird up. Funds and time are limited but we will get there.
