My friend just picked up a 90 SC with 55,000 miles on it- mint body, ran great- only kind of crappy looking parts were the front leather seats (cracked). Anyhow, about 3 weeks later he blows the head gaskets- takes it to ford for supposedly a $1500 head gasket replacement, and they ended up getting him for $6000 for a new crate motor installed- said he cracked the block and the heads and they had to replace the whole engine. So his $3500 find turned into a $10,000 nightmare- at least he gets a fresh engine to mod......Does this seem high for a new motor? The thing that gets me is that the car never ran crappy to the day it went in, just overheated. It didn't seem as serious as they told him it was.
