We had to go to Nashville to get it. Its an 88 Thunderbird Automatic. The previous owners took it to a shop that didnt know what they were doing before they sold it. The vacuum lines were all messed up and the timing had been set without pulling the spout.

The car is fully loaded and everything works great.With a little TLC and the red parts from the silver car (which will be painted silver, ironic huh?).

Enough blabbering ---- PICS!!!

Looks good, but lose the first couple of pics. It looks bad to have a Ford being towed by a Chevy. lol.

Nice car. Same year and almost exactly the same mileage as mine but nowhere near as much rust as mine underneath. I'm asuming a southern car?

The car was bought and picked up in nashville, so yea, if you call tennessee southern. The car actually had a tag on it saying that it was going to be towed on the 27th. We beat the tow truck by about an hour.

That thing was awesome for the trip. Its an LT with Autoride and a 5.3 Vortec. Got 13mpg running 80mph on the way down and got 12mpg on the way back towing the car at 80mph. Its time for a tune-up.

I think my favorite part of the trip was stopping at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green on the way home. We only took up 8 or 9 parking spots.
