Poor Mans Mustang — This was my first car and fell in love. I love the sporty look of these cars, 89-95 Only. They should of stopped there. The new ones look too much like a chrysler in the front end. Thank you for looking

Thunderbird Seems To Be Cursef — Its a old used car with a few problems however when running right the 3.8 has lots of get up and go. Fuel mileage is pretty good. Wish it had factory cup holders. Not a bad ride overall. The two doors are heavy when closing. Power brakes are different and took some getting used to

Its A Great Car But... — i take the car because my brother give it to me. This is the fastest machine i ever ride. It was a beautiful car, it is very long and heavy but it have a unique style that can surprise anyone. It is very fun to run because of his quick response on steering and acceleration.

It Runs Great, Great Motor For A V6 And Drives Smooth. — Built Ford tough definately during this era. 3.8L V6 SuperCoupe with over 250 HP to get around. Cost is fairly cheap to maintain, very simple. Awesome car to drive around town, cruising, hitting boost, whatever you feel like doing with this vehicle.

Cons

The head gaskets are it's main weakness

Ford Could Have Done Better — Nothing to tell, I don't own the car anymore. Sent it to the junkyard over the weekend, and almost everything was expensive to repair, and despite it's fun to drive nature, it just was too expensive to keep any longer.
