77,78,79 FORD THUNDERBIRD LOWRIDERS...THE BEST OF YEARS OF THE TBIRDS
Finally starting up my 1977 T-Bird again after a whole year!
Hey everyone, I finally got a chance to start up my T-Bird and give it a
spin. It has been way too long. Last time I started it was Sept. last
year (2010). Starts up again without really any problems, small fuel leak,
40 second fix. lol.
Here is the history of my t-bird:
My dad bought it for his first car and he stopped driving it in 1989
because of some carb problems. My dad saved the car for me and in 2004 I
had the chance to get it running again. To my surprise, after not running
for 15 years, I poured gas down the carb and it fired right over!!!!! After
I bypassed the gas lines (old gas in them) I had it running like new. Haha,
first time I put it in gear it squealed the tires and jumped forward a
couple feet!!! I make sure I have the break to the floor before I put it in
gear now! Later in 2004 I brought the car in to a mechanic to have the
tranny flushed, but because of my lack of car knowledge I found out the
hard way that you don't do that to a old car. It now has tranny problems,
sometimes it wont stay in gear. Which really sucks because the tranny was
working beyond perfect before. It still has the minor carb problems
mentioned above too. And so I parked it in the storage shed in the video
and it is waiting for me to have the money and time to continue rebuilding

Here at RK Motors Charlotte, you know we're famous for finding unbelievable
cars, and this 1979 Thunderbird certainly qualifies. On the one hand, you
might be thinking that with over 100,000 T-Birds built in '79, this one
can't be rare, but on the other hand, how many have just 4219 original
Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
1979 Ford Thunderbird
Here's my 1979 T-bird, with the original 351M. It has a little work done to
it, it has 3.55's in the 9 inch with a Detroit Locker, the FMX was rebuilt
with a shift kit installed, the Exhaust is true duals (you can tell by the
sound) with Hooker Supercomp headers and Flowmaster 40's on 2-1/2" pipe.
Not a bad car, it was my first ride.
Here I have a nicely taken care of Thunderbird from 1970. Its not one of my
more favorite years.. but the price, I just coudn't pass it upI Got this
car from a Estate Sale. It was owned my a auto Tech.. so he took pretty
good care of the car. 123K miles with the engine being rebuilt (upper
motor) Rebuilt carb and Radiator. I wanted to do a longer Vid, but someone
