    Red Hot 2003 Thunderbird — I like that she has 3 personalities: Hard top-for those snuggly days, Soft top-for those days that are a little to hot to go topless, Convertible-for the topless, flirty days. Thunderbird drives great and really has great appeal. Only downfall is you can only take two.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I am beautiful and spoiled lie no other. I have only flew 19879 miles and I look like new. I drive well, fully loaded, and will spoil you as well

    Cons: I can only take two of you at a time so you have to wait in line.

    Excellent Ford Thunderbird! — The Ford Thunderbird is a weekend cruiser. Drop the top for a great canyon drive with the retro look and feel, but all the modern requirements of a nice reliable car. This vehicle is the perfect pleasure car without breaking the bank!

    Pros: Very enjoyable retro car with power.

    Cons: Could use a bit more power and handling improvements.

    Thinking Of Getting A New One. — not the best handeling car... but its pretty quick in a straight line.Breaks could be better. It needed the roters replaced at under 18000 mi. andk several coil packs went bad... it was under warranty though. it looks pretty good and i look good driving it. its a horrible gass guzzeler... that may just be the way i drive it though.

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

    Pros: classic throwback car.

    Cons: maintenance costs and

    Ugly, But Fun — I have never liked the look of this car, but my uncle got one and let me drive, and I loved driving it! It almost handled like a sports car. I did a burnout 180 in the middle of the road in it.

    Pros: Speed, handling, interior

    Cons: Looks

    Quality Sports Car — Great retro styling, but not too retro like the PT Cruser. Real metal trim on the interior and comfortable, yet firm seats. Very nimble handling, although response is limited. Great performance and great sound. Overall a great luxury sports car. I'ts a shame they didn't sell well.

    Pros: Good looks and performance

    Cons: Really tight on space inside, steering feels numb

    50 Anniversity, Limited Edition By heinem1
