I bought my 95 t-bird used for $3000. It had 113k on it then. I travel 42 miles one way to work, 84 total per day. I have a family of 5. It has been dependable and really has the kick when you need it. It handles like a dream. I have put some hard miles on it, and she still does not hesitate. I have more than got my money's worth out of this car, and will feel like a part of the family is gone when I trade her in. This car was the best investment I had ever made. The only flaw that I found was the seat, if ever moved, was very hard to get back right and would make my back ache a little, but nothing that could not be overlooked by the fun of the drive.
