Easy to build up. That is why so many kids buy them. Be original go for a car that not everyone has. I would take a Ford Thunderbird 87-89 Supercoupe and do that up! The supercoupe is turbo charged but to swap to a 5.0 is easy to do.

No, the earlier generation of the Thunderbird was called a TURBO Coupe, not a supercoupe. It was a 4cylinder Turbo setup.

The first start of supercharged in the T-bird was 89. I'm sorry the supercoupes were 89-92 I believe the Turbocoupes were 83-88. The 87-88 were the nicest ones they had the hood scoopes.
