I bought the car 2nd hand at a used car lot in Pa.($5,000} Made it safe to drive ($2500) and redid all the suspension ($1700). now its all restored it runs great and slightly oversize tires give it a mean look. Its a roomy midsize with the 3.8 v8 gives me 25mpg on the hwy. I work on it as it needs it. I Love My T-Bird.

Because I was a Bill Elliott fan, all I wanted was a bright red Thunderbird. When I saw this car, it was love at first sight. I am still driving it after 16 years. It still is a great handling car. My T-Bird still looks great and gets good gas mileage. Ford would recover faster if it starting building cars like this again.

I bought this car in 2002 and have had minor problems. I've replaced the alternator, brake pads/shoes, battery, and tires. The rear axle has a slight leak. The car needs antifreeze filled every few months. I want to install new headlights because mine are very yellow. Also changed transmission fluid last summer. All warning lights work!

I drove it for 1.5 years. Now it is
- transmission ($1000?)
- antifreeze gets into engine and
- catalytic converter broke and makes
an awful noise (buzz), ($260?)
- starter was replaced ($90)
- alternator was replaced ($300?)
- battery was replaced
- blinker lights are burnt.
- interior: ceiling is decomposing and
dropping something black onto seats,
door handle has come off, power windows
don't open, cracks on the dash board
from the sun, all plastic parts are
barely hanging, glove compartment is
not closing or locking anymore.
-exterior: paint came off on the roof.
I am amazed. The car seemed to be so
good when I bought it. :(

I purchased my 1992 Ford Thunderbird in
1994 and I am still driving it today.
Aside from the regular maintenance on
the car, I have only had brake work
done once and a starter put in. I have
never been stranded any where because
something went wrong. This car has
been a god send!!!

The car has been a good reliable car.
The std. V6 is good on gas and has
reasonable performance. The exterior
has remained in excellent condition.
After 180,000 miles, I have had to have
the head gaskets replaced at 140k
miles, the front bumper repainted, and
the driver seat belt fixed.
