Beautiful Lines And Power Out The Ying/yang — performance wise it was no sports car.on the muscle end it was all power. 105 and only half throttle. solid body no rattles. beautiful styling. a bit fuelish and high octane to boot, but a fun ride even the wife fell in love with it

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: because you love it

Cons: man , the gas. this one was thirsty

Well I'm A Car Lover. I Car Look At Everyones Car And See The Art That They Created For Themselves. —

I own a 1961 Ford Thunderbird and I just love it. I think that car was made with me in mind. Sitting behind the wheel I have the perfect cruzing arm rest that is the top of the drivers side door. I love the looks. It's not the most popular look but it's beautiful. Sure there are things that I had to change that I found Ford didn't do a very good job when creating this car like the Radiator. This car would away over heat when I would hit a hill. I took it to a race shop and had them biuld me a radiator that would keep my car cool. It cost me a some money but well worth it. I hate the blinker switch. I bought a new one years back and the new one acts like the old on. Doesn't hold when turned on. Do Ford failed at the too. Will have to come up with something for that. I haven't restored it yet due to no money. So I was thinking of rat rodding it while I work on the body. And under the hood. So Sure there are things I dislike about the car but I have had this car for over 16 years now and I would never dream of selling it. One look at this car and it brings out the boy in me.

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

Pros: This car is a work of art. Someday I will finish my work.

Cons: None. If you are a car lover than why avoid a car. Sure it may not be your cup of tea but who care love it anyways.

A Beautiful, Well-built Automobile — This car is so unique in it's styling - totally 1961, totally beautiful. Back in the day it was a pretty good performer, but couldn't compete with much today. It is rock solid, however. The reason you drive one today is because you like the look inside and out and it just makes you feel happy. One of the things I really like and am always amazed at is that everything can be taken apart relatively easily, cleaned or repaired and put back together again.

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

Pros: Unique styling, plenty of horsepower

Cons: Needs it's own oil well and refinery

Don't Have The Car Anymore Sold It So My Parent Could Have The Money They Were In Need! — Loved it's tilt park stering wheel. The steering wheel would move to the center of the car to park. Made it eazy to get in & out of the car. Also was one of the first cars to have power windows. Had lots of power!!!

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing
