Hi, new here.

Postby 4slinger » Mon Jan 01, 2018 1:10 pm

I am an old car fan, mostly personal luxury types, and have owned a handful of old cars in the past 35 years or so. A 48 Dodge Club Coupe fully restored, 64 Thunderbird, 63 Thunderbird, 63 Old's Starfire, 74 Buick Electra 225. Not counting the one's in high school and in my twenty's, 67 and 68 Cougar and in 1976 I bought a 1970 Buick Riviera GS with buckets and full console, only wish I would have had more appreciation of what that car was. What can I say, youth and ignorance. I have recently gotten the bug to get another old (classic) car to tinker with and enjoy. Always loved the 83 to 88 Thunderbirds, especially the Turbo Coupe, but never owned one. Remember seeing a Lincoln Mark VII back then so that recently came to mind and have fallen in love with this car, very pleased to find this club. So at this moment I am in the process of looking to see what's out there, look forward to learning more about the car and learning a great deal from the great people here.
Hope you all have a safe and happy new year.

Welcome to the group, and the obsession. I just bought my Mark VII a few months ago, a '92 LSC, black with black leather, & fairly well optioned. It's my first, & I started looking for it a few years ago. I'm on the east coast of Canada, & not too many around here. Rust is a problem locally. Hopefully, Denver will have more to choose from. With all of the things these cars have in them to go wrong, and limited parts available, I'd suggest finding the best one you can, instead of a fixer-upper. It's tempting, when you see one at a lower price, but its my opinion that it'll cost a lot more in the long run. They're pretty well built, but a 25+ year old car. Sounds like you've been around the scene long enough that you'd might agree. Unless you really enjoy the challenge. That used to be me, but not so much anymore. Good luck with the search. I think a car is like a pet, when the right one comes along, things just line up right.

Welcome, and I agree, take your time and find the right one for you. Some parts are harder to source, so look at those items carefully on used possibilities, and hunt those soon when you can.

Welcome to the forum. I totally agree on what has already been said. As these cars get older, they are getting harder and harder to find in a decent shape. One will come along with patience. Some just come along unexpected too. :o That's how I acquired "Blu" , our blue 90 lsc. I really wasn't even looking, but this one came up on craigslist that was just to good to be true. Original owner, low mileage, with all paperwork and garaged since new, I just could not past it up. ....... So keep a look out, one will come along someday.......

Keep us posted one what you come up with and remember we are all here to give you advice if you need it. :mrgreen:
