That's got SC written all over it!  Just add a motorcycle gas tank to the roof and drive it!

I'm learning about t-birds.  this one has a 390 ci v8 and gets 9 mpg city and some posts say 20mpg on highway.    115 mph top speed when new.     It may have a sliding steering wheel that makes it easy for fat guys to exit car.  I see a few barn like ones for 2-3 grand.  this one looks worse than those.....  much worse.  Why would a seller say he can't start engine today cause it has no oil in it.  Do people ever remove oil and use it in other cars?  Oil Vampire's?..Oil Evaporation?

Zen,  it comes with 2 gallon red plastic gas can in the engine compartment.
Near the engine is the best place for gasoline, keeps gas warm, prevents vapor locks.  SC

Hey SC . . . just so you'll know this ahead of time . . . WATER is not the best thing to put out a gas fire with.  Just remember that.  It'll come in handy somewhere down the road if you get this car.  Don't ask me where I learned this.   ;D
