I Love It! — This car runs great and it is reliable....this car hasnt had any build flaws except for the replacement of the fuel pump about 2 years ago....the interior to my knowledge is all original and on the outside there are no flaws except for a small rust spot by the hard top....cost of ownership is not that bad right now to keep it fueled its a little outrageous because of high gas prices....its definitely a fun car to drive because with it being so old it turns heads going down the road especially the younger generations.

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

Pros: It is a classic some say an antique and its just a fun car takes you back to the 70's!

Cons: Right now top reason to avoid is because of gas prices.

Absolutely Fabulous — Years ago I bought a 73 bird for $600, fixed it up and had about 4 years of the time of my life for a 17 - 20 year old kid. I had to sell it when in school as I just couldn't afford to maintain it or feed it! Recently I found and purhcased a one owner w/ 148K on it and it is just a dream. I have never had so much from a car then and now!

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

Pros: Power, smooth, turns heads

Cons: Hungry!

Ford Thunderbird — My first muscle car, and by muscle...there was A LOT of it. This thing was a tank. I remember I had actually hydroplaned one night into a hill and it did nothing to the car. I moved a mill before hurting the car. I would still have this car too if it had no went up in flames.

Pros: Built Tough

Cons: RWD

Beautiful Steel-blue Ford Thunderbird By MaricelaHoward

50 Anniversity, Limited Edition By heinem1

Wife's Toy By Luger

Rather cramped for tall people. Little storage and the trunk is very shallow. A car to cruise in, not for trips.Had to get custom seat covers since a black interior will cause damage in 115 degree h... Read More

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

Great Car By Vwags

This car is a joy to drive. The style is very nice and it has the power and handling to support the style. The car gets surprisingly good gas mileage for a V8. I would think long and hard about get... Read More

Impressive By 97TBirdOwner

The Ford Thunderbird in this generation is a very nice mix of performance, luxury, and style. They can be relatively inexpensive if you look around and get lucky. I drive this one daily, and as mentio... Read More
