I am the second owner. This is the most reliable car I have ever owned. Well built, good balance (easy on tires) and does not burn a drop of oil nor evaporate any engine coolant. A/C still blows cold air at 82,000 miles. The style still looks good too. GM owners that say they would never own a Ford have told me; this T-Bird model would be one they wouldn't mind owning.
The body-style, interior dashboard and being a V-8 with rear wheel drive. The front hood must be well sealed, because the engine compartment stays cleaner as compared to other Ford and GM cars I own.
