Here's some thoughts:

1)  THE MORE THE MERRIER.  What about including Merkurs too?  Weren't
      some pre/non-SVO/non-TC applications of the 2.3 turbo?  I thought I
     seeing some Mustangs and even Fairmonts with hood bulges labeled
     somewhere in my hazy past.  My general sense of this is the SVO was
     elevation of the existing 2.3 turbo technology, as was the 190
hp/240 lbs. torque
     TC motor, over the mid-80s stock SVO power plant.  

     Anyhow, the point is that the more people which are included the
more potential
     (read after-market $$$$ for vendors to snif) we can hope for.

2)  Paul, thanks for getting the discussion started with NFFFC. 
Continuing the
     thrust from above, whatever comes of this consider swapping the N
for an 
     I for International, or for a W for World.  Many other lists have
owners (or 
     aspiring owners) across this shrinking planet.  One of my favorite
     moments was a real-time discussion with someone in Australia who
     owned a '68 big-block GT fastback Mustang with a top-loader.  Major

     Ford is a global player.  Let's use the whole stage if we're going
to put on a show!


'68 Mustang GT 390 Fastback:  Top-loader, 3.73
'88 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe:  T-5, 3.55
'95 Windstar LX:  *****safety rating
