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
