    Hot Rodded 1977 Thunderbird — Great straight line run but no slalom courses. I future I'll redo the suspension both front and back along with the steering linkage. Maybe get air bag suspension along with rear ladder setup and beefier sway bar. Up front needs to be redone too with newer technology suspension. Definitely need to get some new interior upholstery done.

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

    Pros: Awesome Straight line Power from a Small block (Very Sleeper). Comfortable, Elegant Ride. Tastefully Unique, yet subdued Styling and old Skool Hot Rodding rolled into one. One of a kind 18 1/2 foot Land Yacht! Fit 6 people in car with lots of room and about 5 more in the the trunk! Gobs of Power for the 1/4 mile track.

    Cons: Don't ever think you can slalom California Mountain roads or the French Riviera!! NOt gonna happen!! It's a LAND YACHT FOR POWER'S SAKES and weighs 5600 lbs gvw from factory. About 4000 - 4400 lbs gvw now.

    The Beastly Boat — A large car with a 400 engine with an Edelbrock intake and 650 carb. Rides nice and very reliable for age. Mileage is not good at all. Good interior with very comfortable seats. Insurance rate is very cheap. I'm the 3rd owner.

    Pros: Rides Nice

    Cons: Too Heavy
