Fun To To Drive Around Town But Not A Long Range Vehicle. — I am the third owner of this car. My son drove it as his first car. The car is not a speed demon but handles very well. The car rides and drives great. Performace wise this car is no speed demon but drives like a car of this vintage should.

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

Pros: Fun to drive

Cons: Big and Boaty

Two Tons Of Disco Fury — Performance: Since the car is from the late 70's the performance lacks a little bit due to the introduction of emission controls under the hood. Build Quality: The car is 32 years old and has no major/moderate problems. Appearance: the car is just drop dead sexy Cost of ownership: It is expensive, I only get 8 m.p.g. Fun Factor: The car has a lot of torque, so it's pretty fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: Gas Mileage

I Should Not Have Scrapped That Car — There wasnt much I didnt like about it except for the fact it would constantly break down. When it was running it was a great car. It was a great car to drive and ride in too bad its gone.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it was so big it was hard to not spot floating down the road

Cons: it would always break down

Still In Love With My Thunderbird Even Though It's Dead And Buried — this was my very favorite car, it had the most comfortable interior i ever had and the exterior allowed for alot of flying down the freeways maintenance was basically standard oil changes, spark plugs, nothing extraordinary, added to the fun for me had a cb radio in this one and used to check out the smokey reports before i flew down the freeway, was an awesome ride the most memorable car of my life, IF you ever find one NEVER LOAN IT TO ANYONE, my best friend of that time borrowed it and totalled it - saddest thing that i can think of right now

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

Pros: smooth ride

Cons: not exactly environmentally the best car available

This Would Be A Great First Car. — This car accelerates fast with lots of power, does burnouts a quarter mile down the road, brakes good with anti-locks, and handle just right. This car when first bought needed a new fuel pump to run, and after it was in, it ran great. No squeaks, rattles or road noises. This car looks really cool inside and out and is very comfortable. This car is very fun to drive, do burnouts, whatever you want, because its got the power. Only one setback, on 12 miles to the gallon. With its 351M and 4,500 pounds (yeah its a boat) to carry, thats actually good mileage.

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

Pros: Pretty much everythind is flawless.

Cons: 12 mpg

Pros: Fun to drive, Lots 'a horsepower, no noises

Cons: Only 12 mpg

I Want Another One!!!!!! — I paid $1400 for an 88,000 mile car in 1995. The car was very clean, with only 2 minor surface rust spots. The main problems I had with this car were the boat anchor of an engine (400-M) and the 3 (FMX) transmissions that I had to put in it. The car was beautiful, rode smooth as silk, and handled quite well for such a large car. I want another one.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: comfortable, spacious, elegant yet sporty styling, THUNDERBIRD

Cons: 9 mpg city

Big Red Land Yaught — This really does feel like a boat to drive, and is about the same size as one. You can barely tell you're even on the road. The car has no road feel, is extremely quiet, and comfortable. The transmission is so smooth you cant tell when it shifts. The engine is pretty unreal too, the 351M is a great engine all around, and it can be stroked easily. It is very easy to work on. The only really electronic device on the car, the cold start system, has been my only problem, so I just took it off. Some people seem to think its too big, but I've never really had too much of a problem with that. For a car this large, it has great acceleration, and handles better than expected. The car is exceptionally cool in every aspect, especially with vacuum headlight covers, retractible windshield wipers, seating for 10, and 20 square feet of chrome.

Pros: Ride quality, interior, comfort

Cons: stock wheels look way too small for the car
