What is wrong when several spark plugs are dripping with oil on a 95 Ford Thunderbird V8?
It seems to me that this would be a drastic engine break, maybe a cracked piston or cracked cylinder. Although with multiple cylinders showing signs of oil leakage, I would lean more towards bad head gaskets, leaking fresh oil into the cylinders. A way to check this is to remove the oil filler cap with the engine running and see if there is a significant amount of "blow by" air coming out of it. Also if your radiator is loosing fluid, or your exhaust is white with steam, this would be a sign of a faulty head gasket. If it is just one side, or row, of cylinders, I would check both the head gasket, and the intake manifold gasket to make sure they are in good working order.

If you are aware of which two cylinders are NOT firing, I would change out the spark plug wires and the spark plugs with brand new for those two cylinders. If you aren't sure which cylinders AREN'T firing, then do a complete change of new wires and spark plugs. HINT: Try not to use Bosch plugs... I did, and had all kinds of trouble with them even tho they were inexpensive and supposed to be…
Spark plugs receive electrical power from the ignition system. This uses a transformer (the coil) to change 12 v power to several thousands of volts. This high voltage current is carried to the plugs by the plug wires. When the electricity jumps the gap between the electrodes of the plug, it makes a spark.
Follow the spark plug wires from the distrubitor to the plugs located under the valve covers. I'm sorry but, if you have to ask that question, you SORELY need to buy either a Haynes or Chilton book on the car. It includes info on how to and what NOT to do. It's important... you could get in serious -and expensive- trouble
There are several things you might consider, first off I don't know what plug you are using but you might want to try one step colder on your spark plug.
