Its A Great Car But... — i take the car because my brother give it to me. This is the fastest machine i ever ride. It was a beautiful car, it is very long and heavy but it have a unique style that can surprise anyone. It is very fun to run because of his quick response on steering and acceleration.

Pros: it is very fast, the handling is owesome, it has torque and power and the interiors are very comfortable.

Cons: it needed to be repaired so many times,the original body kit broke too easy and  the brake is not the best

Like Driving A Big Boat — no steering feel, extremely floaty suspension, really bad build quality but engine and transmission felt like it would last forever.

Pros: good looking car

Cons: heavy, kinda slow and floaty

1990 Ford Thunderbird —

fun to drive car,very low mileage when i got it( 80,000 miles) very smooth ride, very spacious and roomy inside the car. acceleration is very good for how heavy the car is. Love the look of the car it has a sleek design for a 1990. Gas mileage is a big factor with this car. i barely get 20 mpg with this car and the tank is huge (15 gallon). it costs me 45 bucks to fill the tank half way. interior of the car looks awsome for how old it is. very clean and comfy seats and looked like it was hardley used when i got the car.Exterior the car is in very good shape. No dents or scratches on it and very very little rust which is amazing for how old this car is. Mantience wise i knew i would have to fix it up since it was an old car. ive had to replace breaks, break rotars, starter, ignition switch, Throdle switch, alternator, water pump, window clips and motors and a break line and the engine when i got the car. overall the some comes up to about 1500 bucks to fix over time. Overall handles really well and is a great first car for a anyone.

Pros: smooth ride, little rust or damage to the interior. sleek look for an older car, 3.8 v6 engine with 170 horsepower.

Cons: breaks down really easily since its an older car, 5 gear slips a little bit, gas mileage, no abs,

Time-bomb — Well I was not impressed on the test drive seeing as it needed alot of work, a few hundred dollars later it is running and it was able to get me from A to B without over heating sometimes, but most other times it would overheat due to a blown head which is fairly common in those cars. A few months later when the transmission exploded I had to trash it

Pros: It kinda runs

Cons: Pretty much everything

Ford Could Have Done Better — Nothing to tell, I don't own the car anymore. Sent it to the junkyard over the weekend, and almost everything was expensive to repair, and despite it's fun to drive nature, it just was too expensive to keep any longer.

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

Pros: It's a clean design, and it WAS fun to drive

Cons: The head gaskets are it's main weakness
