2005 Ford Thunderbird

The 2005 Ford Thunderbird continued the two-seater tradition with its typical sharp-yet retro-convertible.  Considered a luxury vehicle, prices for a new T-Bird started in the high 30's.  

The standard engine was a 3.9-liter V8.  The engine is a little loud, as is typical for V8's, but the all-around drive is fun and smooth.

The car pays proper respect to its predecessors, with round headlights over a grille that can look like it's either smiling or snarling, depending on how fast the little roadster is coming up behind you.
