She's A Boat Of A Car. — Performance - Lots of horsepower for the hills but had trouble sticking hard turns. She was very responsive and handled with easy. I even dropped a valve and she kept right on going. Appearance - My best looking car. Nothing wrong inside or out. A few dents since I was still in high school. Fun Factor - She was my funnest car.

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

Pros: Easy handling

Cons: Bad with gas

Makes A Great Race Car Too! — I got my first 1984 Thunderbird (Turbo Coupe) and stripped it out and made a stock car out of her. It is my rookie year and I am having a blast out there. It is the nicest looking race car at the track. I wanted a parts car in case I slammed into the wall so I found one in a tiny town sitting in a field. I paid the man who owned it (it was his mother's car) $100.00 It has a blown head gasket which I hear is quite common on these cars. What a steal I got on this car. It is in immaculent condition, not a ripple or wrinkle on this car (inside or out). I told my husband that I do not want to use this car as a parts car. I am now going to restore it to its original grandueur this winter. I am going to put a 4 cylinder so I can putt around and get great gas mileage. I just love the style of this car.

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

Pros: just a pretty car

Cons: unknown negatives yet

Freebie — Not too bad a car. got it free from neighbor because he couldn't start it. bought a battery cable and battery and the car runs fine but seems underpowered with v-6. hope to see the kids use it for a few years before it dies. I think it looks cool--it has nice wheels and is fairly comfortable.

Pros: styling

Cons: lots of little problems

Eh.. — Never really liked this car. It was more of an impulse buy, just wanted a car so bad after my first, I did not care what it was. It came with mag wheels, and I did drive it for over two years, being as old as it was, it held up well. It had a lot of rear end body damage, other than that, the body was in good condition. The inside was not. The mags and the 12" Kenwoods in the trunk were worth more than the $400 I sold it for.

Pros: Reliability, acceleration, the outside looks nice after a nice wash/wax job.

Cons: Inside smelled like mildew. Instrument cluster was hard to see at night. Just all around POS.

A Heavy 2 Door! — A car thats easy to work on for the backyard mechanic who wants a fairly reliable winter or beater car.

Pros: Lots of heavy steel to protect you!  The 5.0L V8 is a fun motor

Cons: Heavy! Body roll, parts getting rare in 2008.

Best Winter Beater Ever!! — When I bought my Thunderbird (VIN 1FABP4636EH208850) In October, I had planned on keeping it for a long time. It was a gorgeous vehicle. The 5.0L HO with a 5 speed manual transmission made it a rare bird indeed. It was fast, and tons of fun. One of the few cars I regret selling. I'd buy her back if I could find her. Unfortunatley the need and want for a 4x4 was too great. I actually owned it side by side with a 1990 Jeep Cherokee, and when it snowed, I would drive this over the Jeep. It was that much fun in the winter!

Pros: So fun to drive.

Cons: 1st Gear was stripped, and the cooling system was deeply flawed.

310,000 Original Miles — This car was fantanstic. Aside from figuring out how to set the idle on a throttle body ignition, she can go from 55 to 80 faster than anything i've owned. She still had her original 5.0 and tranny in her, as well as smokers windows and an old school factory sun roof (no retraction, just removal).

Pros: Leather seats, 5.0, 310,000+ miles

Cons: never replaced the starter, couldn't start her when she was warm.

Nice Car, Nostalgic, — The car looks like money and yet is affordable. Like the era and the style. Color is great (red). Has a sporty look without looking dangerous.

Pros: Nice running, looks affordable to keep in good repair.

Cons: Old but maybe not old enough to get the price up in a few years.
