2nd Car. Nearly Killed Me. Went Back To Driving The Camry. — Horrid Brakes and RWD are bad for new drivers. Nearly killed me multiple times.

Pros: It's a big V8 Thunderbird

Cons: Poor Brakes, The Stereo was stolen out of it.

1989 Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe Truely Magnificent — With the introduction of the Super Coupe Ford made a statement by putting the muscle back into the Thunderbird. Muscle was lost during the fuel crisis. At 210 hp, speed sentitive steering, independent rear suspension and the PEP 151A electronic package it was a true sports coupe that rivaled the 6 series BMW. I drove this car every day through the treacherous Santa Cruz mountains (CA Highway 17) with confidence and exilleration. Its performance was true perfection. Today the car has 186,000 miles and is still running. I am now dedicated in the restoration and preservation of these magnificent machines. This car will go down in history to be the best Tbird ever. The 5 speed manual transmission gives the driver complete control from the start, accelerating and explosive speeds. The only thing holding the car back is its weight of 3500 lbs. If Ford could have lightened the car down to 3000 lbs they would have had a rocket. Altough Ford made the Thunderbird from 1989 -1995 in excess of 729,000 units less than 50,000 were the Super Coupe (6.9%) these machines will be highly sought after by collectors during the next 5 to 10 years.
