Got To Love A Convertible T-bird!!! — This is a classic muscle car. It has power in all the right places and the looks to back it up. I am currently trying to restore this 1964 Thunderbird Convertible with beautiful white leather interior. It has 105,000 original miles and runs and drives like a dream! Hopefully with a little TLC and some cosmetic work this will be a show car. I will keep you updated with my progress!

Pros: Classic Muscle Car!

Cons: None!!!

1964 Caspian Blue Beauty. — I have owned this car since 1967 and have only driven it one winter in 47 years and only for a few days when my company owned 1969 Chevy Impala Caprice Classic broke down which it did constantly. I have driven this car the entire distance of Route 66 and back putting over 7,000 miles in one trip over a month in 2002.

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

Pros: Comfort, ride and good looks.

Cons: Brakes could be better but it is a 50 year old car after all.

T-bird — The best thing is that it's big and sucks a lotta juice ...... the worst thing is it's big and sucks a lotta juice !! You could have a party in the back seat ... as a matter of fact I did ..... often !! A bit of a dinosuar nowadays .... only because of it environmental unfriendliness !!

Pros: Comfortable ride !!

Cons: You need your own personal oil rig to run the thing !!

The Anti-hybrid. All 5 Mpg. Of It. — What's not to love about a classic American convertible? It doesn't stop very well, and handles like an elephant riding a skateboard. But on a warm summer day/night, there's no place better to be.

Pros: Style, class, fun as hell.

Cons: 5 mpg., drum brakes, no airbag but has a nice decapitator.

1964 Ford Thunderbird Review
WildBuckeye says:
Great body lines.Floats down the road. Great power for such a heavy car.Brakes are are a little marginal but good for 4 wheel drum brakes. Solid as a rock especially in a crash which I had once when I was rear ended by a GMC p/u. Great interior and trunk space for a two door hardtop. Latex out like an airplane cockpit.
