Default Supercharged 91 6 speed let me down

I guess I will have to sell it. Yesterday while driving quietly and sanely I discovered the left turn signal did not work. What a disaster. When I got home I discovered the front driver's side turn signal bulb was not coming on. Should I replace the bulb myself or just sell it as is? It is a Bright Turquoise Metallic coupe with about 88000 miles on it pushing 320 HP to the rear wheels. I've had it about 5 years now. Can I do this difficult job myself? Do I need to buy special tools?
Oh well, on the bright side I sold my 1915 Model T and the new owner took it away yesterday so I have some room in my heated garage to work on the 91.



1915 Model T touring. Gone


1991 Corvette. Broken.


Back up to the 1991. 2000 convertible.


1962 Thunderbird. Big tub cruiser if all else fails.

I'm going to assume this is a humor thread
Love the Thunderbird!

Did you ever have a drag race between the 91 and the Model T ?? might have made a good race.

Love the T!!
Tbird looks great as is but would look killer with some wider rubber, some non ghetto rims and a slight drop. Great cruisers

You have a very rare car. For whatever reason only a handful of the turquoise cars were built with a 6 speed!

Did the Model T have a burned out turn signal, too? Did you buy it new?

The answer to both questions is no. The Model T did not have turn signals, unless you count the driver's arm signals. The problem with the T was that I could never adjust the Klaxon to work perfectly. Sometimes it would work and make a great noise and other times it would remain silent.
I may be old, but I am not old enough to have bought it new. Thank you for the compliment.
