Probably The Best Driving "classic" Bird, But Really Underappreciated — My mom and dad bought a red and white landau new in April 1970. While driven a lot over the years, it was garage kept and pampered. I got it a few years ago and had it repainted. It still had the original interior, and but for a seam or two on the drivers seat, it still looks great. It is a fantastic cruiser and quite quick for the weight. The power windows are about the only problem with the car--and they have been problem since new. The gas mileage is not great, as I get about 12 in the city and about 18 on the highway--when I'm driving easy. I like driving it and use it for work several times a week.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

The 1970 Four Door Thunderbird adds a wonderful look to the car show scene.  I never see one in the midwest with exception to an occasional two door.  The space, the power, the body lines the overall appeal out measure it's lack of fuel economy.  Who buy a car like this with gas prices in mind?  Not me....

Cons

Are really any negatives?

Rare Vintage Beauty!! — Still looking for something to not like!?! I also have a 1971 Four Door Thunderbird that waits in the wings. I am currently in the restoration stages of the 1970 T-Bird. Should be completed in April or May. We will see who recognizes this car as we travel from cruise to cruise....show to show.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

1970 Thunderbird — I found a 70 T-Bird stored away in a garage in Pittsburgh and brought it home to restore. It's coming along nice, Zebart saved it from the northern rust belt. Some parts are hard to find though, I need a trackbar bushing. At 74000 miles it runs like a champ and turns heads everywhere I go.

Retro T-bird Ok, But No Classic By Luger

The retro-Birds are nice looking and average performers, but they miss being either a luxury car or a sports car. The trunk is so shallow that there is little storage. Ford got the retro part right,... Read More

Red Hot 2003 Thunderbird By Michelewoodward5
