Poor Mans Mustang — This was my first car and fell in love. I love the sporty look of these cars, 89-95 Only. They should of stopped there. The new ones look too much like a chrysler in the front end. Thank you for looking

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

Pros: Very Fast

Cons: Heavy

Thunderbird Seems To Be Cursef — Its a old used car with a few problems however when running right the 3.8 has lots of get up and go. Fuel mileage is pretty good. Wish it had factory cup holders. Not a bad ride overall. The two doors are heavy when closing. Power brakes are different and took some getting used to

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good power

Cons: Expensive to work on

Not A Bad Car To Own, If You Know What To Look Out For — It's a good looking car, with a clean design, dynamic driving approach, and good ergonomics. Kinda reminds me, in the profile, of an older BMW E24 6 series, especially in the window shape, size, and general independent rear suspension design.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable, and easy to drive

Cons: The head gaskets are it's achille's heel

Awesome Sports Car. — I like the fact that this car has a decent amount of horse power and torque. It also has a sports suspension, to handle tight turns at higher speeds. Sadly I havn't got to drive it yet, because the brake's don't work right now. The brake system is the one thing i don't like about this car. I think they made the system more complicated than it needs to be. But then again if the brakes were in working order, i would be happy with them. The selling points on this car for me are the hp, torque and body.

Pros: The power and torque in this car.

Cons: Some parts for this car are very hard to find and moderately expensive.

It Runs Great, Great Motor For A V6 And Drives Smooth. — Built Ford tough definately during this era. 3.8L V6 SuperCoupe with over 250 HP to get around. Cost is fairly cheap to maintain, very simple. Awesome car to drive around town, cruising, hitting boost, whatever you feel like doing with this vehicle.

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

Pros: Supercharger!!!!

Cons: None

Solid Car But Leaves Much To Be Desired — as far as Performance goes this car sucked. the car would only do 85mph but however it did get good gas mileage it got about 25mpg which is better than my truck gets but my truck will do 110mph so it would smoke that T-bird. as far as maintenance goes it was a solid vehicle but every oh say 30,000 miles you can bet on replacing the left head gasket. just a flaw in the ford 3.8L v6 motor.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: dont waste your time. just buy a mustang

Cons: performance
