A Part Of American Culture! — It was a fun car that I never should of gotten rid of. It was like part of the family. When I got the car, it had only 35,000 miles on the engine and well taken care of and in mint condition! I always took it to cruise nites in the summer and it turned alot of heads!

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

Pros: it was good on gas and was a fun ride!

Cons: no complaints!

My First Car So It Will Always Be One Of My Favourites — I love the 1980 Silver annivessary because of it's electronic dash and keyless entry I still have my car. I love how comfortable the seats are in these cars as well. This was my first car did lots of work on it, always trying different stereo's and ways to improve the motor on a limited teenager's budget

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

Pros: interior, accessories,  style

Cons: motor

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

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
