Just bought a 50th LE

So yesterday I bought a 50th Anniversary LE. It was sort of an impulse buy...I bought it from a dealer but I didnít do any independent inspections or anything. I guess I was too excited to be smart.

Anyway, now that I have it, I may as well do what I shouldíve done and find out if there are any issues I should take care of immediately.

What are some of the known problem areas of this car? What should I look for?

I'd look at everything. Why skip anything on a car you know nothing about?

Are there any specific problems or issues that these cars are known to have?

Posting here IS part of me doing research. Oh, did you think this was the only place I came to and am relying solely on the members here to tell me what I need to know? You know I do actually know how to use Google and I know I can get facts that way. I came to a discussion board to get some discussion to go along with the facts. It never ceases to amaze me that so many people on discussion boards are against discussion.

Encouraging people to learn is hardly the same as being against discussion.

hey, it's been kinda slow in here lately, so we'll take all the threads we can get! LOL

it would be great this did spark a discussion, or if someone who knew all the details off the top of their head from direct experience would chime in and summarize for you, but I have a feeling that might not happen . . . next best plan is to scan the threads in this forum; try the "search" feature even though it is typical search (will give lots of results that you don't want, and hopefully a few that you do want)

meanwhile arguing with the way someone chose to help you, is probably not the best way to encourage others to help you too
